This title is about:
In a neat 15 seconds, a boss asks postal employee to wrap a parcel to send. The employee answers by way of a wrap dance to the lyrics 'Don't wrap it! Postpack it!'

What I like most about this title:
Punchy, brief to the point and funny without trying too hard. Takes you back to the point when rap music entered the mainstream.

What I like least is:
Nothing - it's great!

I saw this title:
only on this site

When this title was made I was:
not watching much television at the time.

The best place to watch this title would be:
on this website.

This title would be a perfect double bill with:
Other 'office suppliers' greats of advertising - photocopiers, photocopy paper, yellow pages.
