The Bounty Hunters - what was their motivation?

So a group of them turn up on some desert island, strip off their scuba gear and then sit together to eat a chocolate-covered coconut confection. Was it a political act?

A protest about palm oil.

In the distance a yacht passes. On it are the beautiful people enjoying the Martini experience. It is permanently 1972.

what was their motivation?

They came in search of paradise, apparently.

And found it!

(chops coconut in half with machete.)

They can no longer run a Marathon.

"I wonder where I can find that Flake girl."

Yes, their motive is clearly stated in the advert. How obtuse do you have to be?

At. It. Like. Knives. They. Were.

Now if you are looking for an allegory of the exploitation of the working class, then the Tudor crisps ad is what you are looking for.

XL Beefy.

Cheese for the Gentry.

Nothing but onions for you Plebs.

I remember the Turkish Delight ads in the 60s. Incredibly arousing.

Mind you, to a lad of 16 anything is arousing.

See how the canny capitalist with his privileged access to credit lines is able to leverage his assets and asymmetric information advantage in order to exploit the working man.

The scuba/machete 1982 location now gets 3,000 bounty hunters per day

NO DISINTEGRATIONS

Seemed like you needed lots of time and resources to travel to a desert island and dig up a treasure chest of free bounties.

Back in those days, I think a tenner would've bought a wholesale box at the cash and carry.

HouseOfLametta - 11 Sep 2019 09:48:43 (#17 of 22)

Also, it's full of fucking Bounties.

Tomnoddy - 11 Sep 2019 10:50:18 (#18 of 22)

I like them!

CaptainBlack - 11 Sep 2019 10:54:24 (#19 of 22)

I imagine most will be struggling to get into the scuba gear now, if they haven't already died of Type 2 diabetes.

Leftie - 11 Sep 2019 11:01:15 (#20 of 22)

Ugh, I'm being reminded of Paul Squire for some reason. He told that awful joke about Bounties.
