Every time the advert came on, he would stop what he was doing and query how he could get one. I told him that it was only given to people who bought new cars.
Fast forward a few weeks later. His father had bought a new car and the first thing uttered was 'will you need car insurance?'
They knew where he was going.
Unfortunately, the car was already sorted. No Brian.
Then, on Monday, I was sitting in my room watching the television and the commercial came on. It got me wondering.
They must have some on Ebay!
And so began the bidding war for a Brian the Robot.
If you think £30 was a little steep for what is essentially a free toy (yes, I know - there is no such thing as a free lunch!) take a look around Ebay yourself. There are loads of them going for £40 and upwards.
I call that a win.
