Will Ferrell talks to you while you wee
A Twitter user has revealed that a new Virgin Trains feature ‘forces’ you to listen to an advert for Daddy’s Home 2 while you use the toilet.
The clip features a pre-recorded message by star Will Ferrell, and was posted to Twitter by confused Virgin Trains customer Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, who wrote: “The toilets on this train FORCE YOU TO LISTEN TO AN ADVERT FOR DADDY’S HOME 2.”
He continued: “I swear to god. When you lock the toilet door on this Virgin train, you HAVE to listen to a recorded message from Will Ferrell advertising Daddy’s Home 2. You’re literally locked in an enclosed space. with a Daddy’s Home 2 trailer. That you CANNOT switch off. this train journey costs £70.”
Virgin Trains later replied to Gavia’s original post, writing “Will’s great though, no?”, to which Gavia replied, “Please allow people to take a shit without listening to a compulsory ad for a Mel Gibson movie.”
Check out the clip below.
Mel Gibson recently expressed his surprise that he has been accepted back into Hollywood despite numerous scandals in the past.
Despite remaining a controversial figure in Hollywood, Gibson’s career has experienced a revival in recent years. He stars in Daddy’s Home 2 and was nominated for Best Director at the 2017 Oscars for his film Hacksaw Ridge.
“I am surprised as I have been digging a ditch for the past 10 years,” Gibson says on this week’s Graham Norton Show.
“Quite frankly, it’s been a lot of hard work personally and professionally, but the work goes on as I think it does for most of us.”
