Timeless British classics reunite for the first time in 30 years. Accurist launches first ever Tweeting Clock on Twitter
The famous 1978 “Accu-ankle, Accu-wrist!” commercial starring British comedy legend John Cleese will hit our TV screens once again on December 1st 2009. After a 30 year hiatus, the team at the family-owned British company Accurist Watches has decided to re-release the ad because of its timeless popularity. In addition to this retro return to TV, they have also bucked a trend by launching the first ever Tweeting Clock on Twitter today –www.twitter.com/accuristtimeIntroducing the first Tweeting Clock is a natural next step for Accurist. In 1986, Accurist became the first ever, official sponsor of British Telecom’s Speaking Clock. Now it is challenging people to see how long they can last following @accuristtime on Twitter which tweets the time every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day. There will also be a prize for the longest standing follower of @accuristtime! The soon-to-be-aired commercial remains authentic to the original release, but has been updated to feature new Accurist Watches – best summed up as “Great new watches, same old me”, as John Cleese puts it himself in the new ad.
