Some waterslides are more fun than others

With a Barclaycard, you zip through life with ease. There you are at the library, picking up some DVDs—then suddenly you're at the supermarket, snagging a banana. At least, this is what BBH London spent a load of money trying to convey in the commercial above. (See the making-of video here.) But jetting around on a waterslide isn't that easy—you never know where you'll end up. This is the theme of the cheeky homage below for U.K. glasses retailer Specsavers. Viciously brandjacked in a month—that's what you get for sending a gawky British actor around Rio in a tube.
