Officials warn on the dangers of Badly Dubbed Advert Syndrome
The World Health Organisation is advising television viewers to avoid watching advertisements following reports that Badly Dubbed Advert Syndrome, which causes the sufferer’s voice to become slightly out of synch with their mouth, has spread from TV actors to consumers.
The first public incidence of the condition saw ‘a disconcerting delay’ observed in the voice of an elderly man in Brighton after watching a housewife neutralise dog odours during the ad break in Countdown. The public is being advised, at the first sign of a hygienically-obsessed housewife or a small South-East Asian boy sitting on the lavatory, to put their fingers in their ears and shout ‘nanananana’ until programming resumes. If the sound comes out as ‘ananananan’ they are to contact their GP immediately.Click to send this story to a friend
