Big-Brained Boffins Make TV Comeback

September 23, 2008

The eighties advert has been remade with television presenters Kelly Brook and Carol Vorderman and comedian Harry Enfield.The original brainy scientists and their over-developed foreheads featured in a series of ads for the cookware and electrics giant between 1985 and 1989.The new version has Enfield and Brook playing the scientists, with Vorderman applying for a position with the company.However, former Countdown presenter Vorderman who in real life is a member of Mensa and has a degree in engineering finds she does not have the brains required to do the job.Enfield and Brook had their giant foreheads fitted in sittings that lasted five-and- half hours by the same prosthetics company responsible for the original ad.The ad will screen early next year. A preview can be seen from today at www.tefalscientists.co.uk.
