I only realised quite recently that I was misinterpreting the Vauxhall Vectra ad with typical low-mindedness.
This is the one where a group of urchins are playing football, and when they see the Vauxhall Vectra, they excitedly line up as if to present themselves for inspection. A nasty-looking baldy man gets out and regards them with intent.
I watched this for weeks thinking that he appeared to be a rich perv shopping for his next catamite, and why should this sordid episode make decent folk want to go out and buy a flash car? I have now been reliably informed that the creepy man is some sort of football manager or summat. I still don't know who he is.
