John West No Drain Tuna!!! FFS!!!

I've got chronic Fatigue and and even on a not so good day I can drain a can of tuna. WTF are these people on. Has anyone seen this advert? You can see the ad agency had real creative trouble with this one.

Place your bets on how long the "No Drain Tuna" model will last. :)

Saw it on a supermarket shelf a few days ago and thought to myself "Should have gone to Specsavers."
What's the big deal with draining the oil/water/chilli juice or whatever from the tin? More importantly perhaps, what are they using to maintain the moisture while the product is in the can?
I'll be steering well clear of it - don't like the canned version anyway, it always gives me indigestion :oops:

It's like Easy Cook Rice. What the fuck is that all about? How much easier can cooking rice get? I mean, rinse, boil in water until al-denti, rinse again, serve. Unbelievable!

What next? Easy Pour Milk?

JW: "Well, er, yeah."
AA: "What points do you want us bring out in the ad?"
JW: "Look pal, we can fish, you do adverts - right?"
AA: "Yes, of course, but we need a few pointers to help us prepare the advert."
JW: "Well it's quicker than the other stuff, like."
AA: "Quicker - OK everyone wants quick these days."
JW: "So warrabout yer gerra a coupla people in a kitchen tryin to drain the ordinary tins, like?"
AA: "Ah OK, so now we see an idea developing - Liverpool's the capital of Ireland, so how about someone with a fiddle and a bloke dressed like a fisherman and a joke about a fiddle - we know you Scousers are always on the fiddle - we'll do a storyboard and bring it back next week."
JW: "A storyboard - what's that when it's at home?"
AA: "Well it's a bit like a comic strip really."
JW: "Listen pal, if I want a comic strip, I'll go to Liverpool's changing room - now piss off and bring back some good ideas."

Mornin H - how's things? :)

Ms Smeggy left half a plate of home made Tuna-Mayo mixture in the fridge. I got the munchies and have scoffed it :)

Our cat wouldn't touch any tuna that doesn't have the brine included, so I wouldn't buy it.

I always buy tuna sunflower oil. I cannot resist digging the fork in the newly open can and having a small bite of oily tuna before using it in the cooking. yummy. :)

The cats won't scoff down the oily version, though I have bought it by mistake (and still have two cans in the cupboard from 1999).

They don't go off do they ?

Cool :thumb: , photographing the content makes it safe to consume.

(I've got a can of evaporated milk from 1997 as well, kept it in the fridge for the last couple of years, just to be sure)

If it's that wholegrain rice (brown stuff), it takes feckin weeks to cook it and by then it's turned into mush so you just bin it :D It's good for you apparently, well it would be, you never actually get to eat it :D
