    Have we really got to the stage in this country whereby if a group of randomers are chosen for a Uni advert...they all turn out to be morbidly obese? Or is it a Uni for chubsters. This is a sad sad situation.

    I wasn't brave enough to make a thread about this, but I did notice that they all seemed rather overweight, I'm not saying this is terrible, but it seems like they did it on purpose to show that they aren't just going to put beautiful healthy people as adverts for their uni.
    If it wasn't a publicity thing then I don't think I've got a big problem with it.

    When you actually look close up it's not as bad as the thumbnail makes you think, in fact I'd say only one of them was overweight. Nick's really thin!

    Any university that has to advertise itself to students, let's be honest, is not worth going to. Especially if they can't pay to get good looking models for their adverts.

      I find it disturbing that they're implying that at other universities people call me by my number. I'm sure I will continue to have a name regardless of what I do, but thank you, university, for suggesting that the rest of us live on the set of "The Prisoner".

      Only Erica seems to have a weight problem?
      The other two girls are chubby.
      I would have said Medyr is the ideal size for a bloke.

        I think it's fair to say they're not the BSc Health & Exercise students. :lol:
