THE THINGS YOU LEARN WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO LIQUOR UP LADY P:

Brains from Thunderbirds to help people combat post-New Year's eve hangovers (Urmee Khan, 24 Dec 2008, Daily Telegraph)

Brains, the bespectacled genius from Thunderbirds, has been cast in an advert encouraging people to drink water to combat their post-New Year's eve hangovers.

The television advert for Britvic spring water brand Drench featured Brains dancing to Snap!'s 1992 hit Rhythm is a Dancer.

The original advert, created by Clemmow Hornby Inge, first aired in May with the strapline "Brains perform best when they're hydrated".

However, in the new cut, which will be launched on 1 January, Brains fails a key dance move when he tries to jump over a broomstick. The mishap is followed by the line "Dehydrated brains don't perform well"
