An independent travel agent from a small town in Scotland has created a so-terrible-it’s-hilarious promotional video, as it looks to drum up custom and bring a little bit of sunshine to the dull October climate.
Twitter has immediately fallen in love.
The video view count, at the time of writing, is currently stuck at 4,912 but that’s because YouTube tends to freeze the number on the first few days of an upload to audit the incoming traffic.
But judging by the Twitter reaction today alone, it’s clear that number is going to get a lot higher.
For context, Thorne Travel is based in Kilwinning, Scotland, not far from the middle of nowhere. But they have gone all out in terms of choreographed acrobatics and bargain bucket special effects.
We’ve picked out the best bits.
Enter the sassy Thorne Travel team.
And, er, this guy. (He has to give that costume back when they’re done shooting.)
For absolutely no apparent reason there is a teen dance troupe.
And we’re equally baffled as to why travel agents suddenly have magic powers to transform girls into brides.
We’re just going to leave this scene here without comment.
Come on Thorne Travel, you’re not fooling us that’s actually the woman from the cruises desk. The shoes don’t even match!
Thorne Travel has made it to the big time. There’s ticker tape and everything.
We salute you Thorne Travel. Once just a humble travel agent, now internet superstars. You deserve a holiday.
