Shnickers?

Started by: dostaf (inactive)

Have my lug 'oles deceived me, or does the fellow on the Snickers advert (Joan Collins 'diva') voice over, pronounce it shnickers?

And it isn't Sean Connery.

Nessels turning into nest-lay was bad enough, as was changing Marathon to Snickers, I do hope I'm wrong.

It's always been pronounced nest-lay everywhere else,we just did the usual lazy British thing of Anglicising it.

The advertisers were always happy to call it nessels.

Wasn't it brewed on the banks of the Ship Canal?

It was brewed in St.Helens (where Greenall's originated) until the 1970's. It was the worst ale of all. Bar none!*

Greenall's are now De-Vere!

* that's ALL greenall's ale, especially their bitter!

Wherever it was brewed it was 5hite as was their other ale, their bitter smelled as though it had been drunk and then spewed up - ugh it was awful.

I have always heard it pronounced Nessells, it's only in the last few years or so that the pronunciation of Nestlay came about. On these two adverts different pronunciations are heard, the one from 1981 is Nessells and funnily enough the 30th anniversary ad from 2007 with an ad from the 1960s has obviously had a voiceover as they definitely say Nestlay

Dear lord, noooooooooooooooo.

I bet some soft sods (native Wiganers) do pronounce it that way.

I know it's not the same company but will there be a mutiny?

But what's he got to do with the new (possibly) pronunciation of sodding Snickers bars?

Oh only just seen your youtube post at 17:22 dostaf.

Do they still do those adverts for Bounty, I've just been thinking that I haven't seen one for a while.

'Mutinay' was a good clue.

Aye and this mon as Captain Bligh.



I'd forgotten about that, strange there isn't any clips of it to be had, though it is on one of the DVDs of their shows.

Was it Arthur Lowe or Eric that kept getting buckets of water thrown at him whilst at the wheel.

I remember one part her Eric fluffs a liine, then apologises to Ern from off set.

Fenella Fielding was in it.

Bloke been on island on his own for ten years.

One day, up the beach walks this stunner in a wetsuit and greets him. He explains his situation to her.

"Ten years without a cigarette?"

"Yes"

She reaches into her suit and pulls out a packet of cigs and a lighter and gives them to him.

He lights up and is delighted.

"Ten years without a drink?"

"Yes"

Again, she has a rummage and pulls out a hip flask and offers it to him.

He sups savouringly.

"Ten years with no human company?"

"Yes"

"Would you like to play around?"

"Don't tell me you've got a set of golf clubs in there as well!"
