But when the butler enters with a pint of Carling as a reward, he delivers the catchphrase, "It’s good…but it’s not quite Carling" and the camera pans out to reveal that the room was painted pink.

Creature won the £10 million Carling account in February, after pitching against the incumbent, VCCP, and Beattie McGuinness Bungay, which had also previously held the account.
