British electronics retailer Currys & PC World launched a series of hilarious World Cup ads to promote its HD and Ultra HD Smart TVs. The ads feature men trying to convince their significant others that it's time to invest in a large screen TV. The men clumsily claim that they want the TV upgrade for reasons that have nothing to do with the World Cup.

The first ad features a middle-aged man having dinner with his wife, before claiming that he'd like to buy a large screen TV so that his wife can enjoy "the program about the castle that you love."

Another hilarious World Cup ad features a man telling his wife and daughter that he'd like to invest in a large screen TV so that the family can enjoy documentaries about penguins in HD. Stats for Hilarious World Cup Ads Trending: Older & Warm
