Putting The Rape Into Rapeseed Oil And The Butt Into Butter: My Idea For An Olive Oil Advert

A parody advert for olive oil using a scene from Last Tango In Paris

What’s better for your health? Cooking with butter or cooking with oil? Experts say that butter isn’t all that bad, it contains many nutrients including Vitamin K2 (and other letter and number combinations). But I’m not here to say what health benefits there are or to tell you the smoke-point stats, I just need a marketing ploy to get rid of the two dozen boxes of extra virgin olive oil that I mistakenly ordered from the dark web.

After a quick search on Bing for Google and then looking up “virgin oil”, I’ve discovered that extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest oils to consume; it’s heart healthy and may lower your risk of Type 2 Diabetes (which I think is the worst type). I’ve therefore come up with an ingenious advert which uses the famous scene from Last Tango In Paris starring Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider. After demonising the use of butter, I’m sure that I’ll soon be rid of my overabundant supply of olive oil. That means my larder will shortly be empty and I’ll finally be able to buy what I originally wanted… 24 cases of edible massage oil.

  1. Since Lisa Mullins (Marketing Manager at Filippo Berio UK) is so opposed to satire and can’t take a joke, we’ve had to remove all mention of this humourless, joyless, and completely serious brand from our article.

    We thought people were free to use all brands of olive oil in non-culinary situations, but apparently Filippo Berio UK don’t want to publicise it.

    Thanks Lisa for being overscrupulous, we think it’s more funnier this way! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Well I never. I am shocked. I see they have no sense of humour, I will definitely think twice before I purchase Filippo Berio for my salad dressing, I wonder if Berio Lucca would have taken feather to parchment in 1867? I doubt it, looks like he had a sense of humour that tash definitely tells me he does. Besides, he was too preoccupied for these trivial pursuits, he was busy squeezing those darn olives.
