DescriptionTwo colour adverts with sound featuring a paperboy.

The adverts both feature the same teenage paperboy and follow a similar format. The teenager's commentary extablishes him as a social observer of the customers on his paper round, points out that there is something different about a customer who takes the Observer and finishes with a display of his sophisticated vocabulary followed by "know what I mean?"

The tagline is delivered by a male voiceover and titles over a shot of the Observer and magazine landing on a doormat.

Tagline: "Do something different every Sunday: Read the Observer"
