‘Banned’ Lincoln uni ads

I don't think these ads were ever intended as a serious to encourage students to go to the university of Lincoln, but that doesn't stop them being very amusing.

They do riff nicely on the cheesy, corporate, shit-eating wankiness of university adverts and while the bulk of the ads themselves may not be particularly novel, the sudden jump-cuts to the dull calls-to-action - order a prospectus - are very well done. As is the sudden "they're here".

I might even have considered going to Lincoln.
