Perf Parody

by Syd Briscoe


Surf: “Dani Dyer” - 30s

Love Island alumnus and famed sprog of her namesake, Dani Dyer gives this tongue in cheek Surf ad an unexpected injection of humour. Self-consciously parodying vintage cleaning commercials, the actress takes to each vignette with a cheesy smile and creepily unbroken eye contact with the camera.

While this sort of celebrity endorsement always has the potential to end up a wooden, stilted mess, Dyer's simpering delivery takes the trope to its logical conclusion - and does so to great effect. Impressive handling of a well-worn concept from director Cloe Bailly.
