Cillit Bang vs. Kill It, Bam!
Back "when we woz studends", around 2005, Cillit Bang spokesperson "Barry Scott" was an internet craze for some bizarre reason. At least, until people got sick of the made-up marketing device.

Anyhoo, we discovered that our 99p store stocked what we believed was a cheap knock-off of Cillit Bang called "Kill it, Bam!". In the interests of science, we decided to perform an experiment to find out which was better, using the cleaning test of choice - old pennies. The results may surprise you. Or possibly not, as we got featured in a b3ta newsletter that week.

Interestingly, after we got featured in the newsletter the people who made "Kill it, Bam!" got in touch with us. It turns out they're the same people who make "Astonish" which I vaguely remember being advertised on late night TV once. Anyway, their email was a little bit sarcy as apparently they felt their product was above merely cleaning pennies (And in fact they informed us that Tomato Ketchup does an even better job - which it actually bloody well does) but they did have the good grace to send us a shitload of various cleaning products, such as de-limescaling tablets for the toilet and feather dusters.

Being students, we didn't really use any of it for anything productive like cleaning, but it was still bloody nice of them.
