‘The game no-one wants to play is back!’

The Green party have continued their recent tradition of humorous election broadcasts with a spoof advert for a new political boardgame.

The 70s-style ad shows a family playing the ‘Race To Number 10’ game. It begins with a voiceover: “The game no-one wants to play is back!... And thanks to the last dodgy coalition there’s now only two teams to choose from.”

The game is described as “fun for all the family”.

“But not if you’re 18,” says mum.

“That’s alright, I didn’t want to save my future anyway,” replies her daughter.

 

 

 

 

The ad then shows players picking up campaign cards. One reads: “You just plastered your campaign bus with a big fat lie. Take a bonus turn!”

Another states: “You reshuffle your shadow cabinet until they all agree with you. Gain ten power points!”

Finally one of the game’s participants tells viewers: “If you feel cheated by the current system it’s time to change the game.”

The ad has been put together by Creature of London, which also devised the Greens’ amusing film for last year’s local elections featuring five-year-old politicians’. In 2015, the Greens unleashed a party political broadcast masquerading as a boyband video.

A Green party spokesman said of the latest ad: “This is the party election broadcast that’s worth watching. Creature have again proved that politics doesn’t have to be dull, bringing biting satire to the broken state of British politics and helping the Green Party to make its powerful, and serious, case for changing the game.”
