What Are Those 50 Movies In The Greater Union Ad?


Cinebuzz Ad

I see a few movies at Greater Union & Birch Carroll Coyle Cinemas (because of the convenience, not the price) and I have to say that I like the advertisement campaign they’ve used in recent months with the hidden movie title advertisement.

If you haven’t seen it, the ad is roughly a minute long and is purported to include 50 movie titles.  It’s a fun distraction before the film and each time, I try to find something new.

If you have seen it, then you might be curious to know how you’ve gone.  Which ones did you get right?  Are there any that you’ve missed?

If you go to the following Youtube link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEQNP9uZghI, you can see the add with the 50 titles revealed.  I think they’re wrong with a couple of them but it’s still good to watch.  I think I got about 30 of them without having to cheat.

Off To The Bathroom?

Here’s another interesting website which you might like to have a look at - http://www.runpee.com/.

It’s called RunPee.  As you can see on the website, it tells you the best time to go to the toilet during the movie.  They try to pick a quiet point in the middle of the movie where you won’t miss anything really funny or really important.

Now, I’m not quite sure how it works in reality.  If you check this before the movie, won’t it reveal parts of the movie?  You could check it on your phone while in the bathroom but is there really enough time?

It’s a funny site anyway.  To give you an example, the best time to skip to the bathroom during The Hangover is when “Phil calls Tracy – the fiancé – to tell her that everything is going great and they got the room comped so they are staying another night.”

The Hangover has been a big smash hit since its release and I recommend you go see it.  It’s been number 1 in the United States for two weeks in a row and it topped the Aussie box-office when released last weekend.
