Have You Got The Winning Velvet Touch?

Tennent’s Velvet has recruited three of the world's greatest stand-up comics to promote the company's fastest growing ale brand.

People throughout Scotland will be seeing a lot more of Tennent’s Velvet in the coming months thanks to an innovative and hilarious TV campaign featuring Whose Line ls It Anyway?

stars Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie. Along with Canadian funny

lady Linda Cash, the team have filmed a series of totally unscripted ads which are on your screens now. Closely following the formula adopted by the hit TV programme, the comics were given a subject relating to Tennent’s Velvet to improvise on, seconds before the cameras rolled. The results are hysterical.

Velvet, launched in 1995, is Tennent’s fastest growing ale brand and is available at over 2000 outlets in draught and can.

To mark the launch of the Velvet campaign, The List and Tennent’s are offering you the chance to win a case of the right stuff. We’ll put a smile on your face by giving you 24 cans of the unique, smooth, velvety ale, if you can answer the question below.

Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie are stars of Whose Line /s It Anyway?, but who hosts the programme?

restaurant a SUCCESS.

But (and ain’t there always a 'but’?), business is bad at the Paradise and a rival restauranteur proposes that they host a diner for Jazz great Lows Prima. But Will the glorious feast that the brothers cook up make their reputation and save their dream7 Will Prima like his meat balls? How big is Secondo's peppergrinder? And Will the fat lady sing and end it all? Go see.

Just to whet your appetite, we've got five Big Night aprons, five posters and five glorious sondtracks to give away. All you have to do is answer this:
