My Favourite Advert: The Marmite Gene Project


This advert made me laugh so much that I had to find the advert on YouTube to send to my parents in New Zealand – they loved it too!

It’s about families taking a test to find out if they love or hate Marmite. The test results come through the post as though it’s a serious medical condition and the reactions are hilarious!

Please find enclosed the results of your family’s Marmite gene test. These show if you were born a lover or a hater.

I love the reaction around the posh dinner table between the older couple.

Man: “I prefer jam.”
Woman: “Have you ever done it here… In this house? On this table?”

I especially love when the man takes a bite out of the crumpet with Marmite on it to please his wife and to show her that he could like it if he tries, but he basically gags and spits it out.

I love it! Haven’t seen it broadcast on the telly very much though, but I thought it was hilarious.

PS. I’m a lover.
