New 'Almost Mothers' Day' Ad Features Machine That Can Tell If You Are Pregnant Or Not

It's Mothers' Day in the UK this Sunday! But before you quickly rush off to the shop to buy your mum some flowers and a card - you really should check out this new ad from the Flower Council.

It's an experiential campaign which features a machine that gives flowers to mums-to-be. That's right, to celebrate 'Almost Mothers' Day', the Flower Council has placed a machine in various high streets, parks and shopping malls that can tell if you are pregnant or not.

If you are, it hands over a lovely bouquet of pink or blue flowers, depending on whether you are expecting a baby girl or boy respectively. (Before you ask, you choose that which colour you want. The machine is apparently not that advanced). 

Now, I am not sure about you, but that is pretty impressive. There is a definitely a couple of times on the Tube that I would have loved to have got my hands on such technology, however, I suspect (and I could be wrong), that judging by the size of the machine that the 'advanced technology' is actually just a person sitting inside guessing.

But how accurate is it? Well, many people who aren't pregnant certainly try and get a free bunch of flowers, and all return empty-handed (apart from one old guy), it looks like the machine is pretty good.

Now we just have to hope there is a machine which give free flowers to sons and daughters who totally forgot it was Mothers' Day this weekend!

Happy Mothers Day - And To Celebrate, Here's Mr T

Today is Mother's Day in the UK - and we hope that you have not forgotten!

Yep, today is the day when you are supposed to treat your mum right - give her flowers and chocolates, tell her that you love her and that you are thankful for what she has done for you.

So to celebrate this special day, we have dug out this old clip of Mr T.

Why? Well, if a man wearing 40 pounds of gold around his neck cannot convince you to treat your mother right, then we do not know who will.

So boys and girls, go treat your mother right, she deserves it.
