Turns out different channels show different ads on the hoardings at the Euros and minds are blown
This video of different TV channels showing different adverts on the same hoardings during the same Euros coverage went wildly viral because, well, watch.
It’s not a new invention but it was new to lots of people (including us) who couldn’t quite get their heads round it.

The magic of TV, right?
‘Oooh I never knew this.’
‘Me neither.. Now when I think about, it makes sense. Really cool to see it like this. 10/10’
‘Life is just an illusion.’
‘Obey Consume Marry and reproduce Submit Watch TV Conform Sleep’

‘But .. how’
