Toyota nz ltd have a long history of making tv adverts that really get the message through. Most famous is the (IN)Famous "Bugger" ads. The challenge is to photograph a "Bugger" moment. Not specifically motor vehicles.
one can google Toyota nz Bugger advert to view it .

erm - there is a specific original meaning to the word 'bugger' isn't there.

I'll give it a go. Perhaps DPC may have to relax some of it's rules though. 'Relax' is probably good advice all round.

I loved those 'Bugger' ads! Specially the dog.

this doesn't sound very nice for a family site

It's a rather twisted family ;-)

Still, we gotta draw the line SOMEWHERE, and I think we may have found it :-)

I think it's a great idea for a challenge. Especially for a twisted family site such as this. :)
The commercial seemed pretty tame to me.

Sorry,It was 10pm at night when I thought of it. Could substitute " Bother " for the original term for the faint hearted. It was what caused the word that I thought would make a good challenge. Toyota have moved on to the Two Possum ads now. They are a real hoot as well..... is in constant use here as an expession for something esasperating ie I have had a bugger of a day or I'm Going to bugger off home now..

Sounds like just an "oops" challenge, which can always be interesting!

What's next, no "shag" challenge?

ps. that's a type of rug to me, not a verb.

Hey, it's baseball season -- you can again safely use it as a verb in the USA ...

instead of "bugger off", make it "butter up"
(GeneralE can do batter up)
