Brits willing to give up sex for a 50 inch!
The Comet survey (of 2,000 respondents) findings challenge the popular belief that British men always have ‘sex on the brain’. Surprisingly, nearly half (47%) of the male population would be willing to take a vow of celibacy for six months to get a 50” plasma TV, compared to just over a third (35%) of women. It seems that size really does matter more for men than women.
Sex isn’t the only thing that the nation would be willing to sacrifice for a 50”. If patches and hypnosis aren’t enough to stop Brits smoking, a new plasma TV could be the remedy for quitting, with just under a quarter (24%) of people claiming they would give up cigarettes for a 50” plasma TV.
So great is the nation’s desire to get their hands on a 50” plasma that a quarter (25%) of Brits would stop eating chocolate for one. Even more surprising is that just under a fifth (17%) of men surveyed would be willing to sacrifice watching football for a 50” plasma TV.
Comet’s Commercial Director, Bob Darke, says, ‘We are surprised to see just how much the nation would be willing to give up for a 50” plasma TV. But we have seen a massive 7,000% uplift in sales of 50" TVs in the last two years. With more and more people aspiring to celebrity lifestyles, having an impressive entertainment system is becoming top-of-the-list for homeowners.”
