But I couldn't read the tin. How I am supposed to know if I need your product if I don't know what it does!?

Oh, woe is me!

The Labeling On The Tin Never Lies!

I never realised the words "Ronseal Floor Varnish" was a popular phrase. In what manner should this phrase be used in order to appear "hip" to the "peeps" on the "street"?
Tom Collins

No.

on this site, some people feel that writing 'does what it says on the tin' in the description field of a video is quite gauche.

A popular UK-oriented website, B3ta, has loads of video/graphics geeks who post a lot of YouTube vids with rather obvious titles, like "kitten licks ice cream." Saying the video is "Ronseal" is shorthand for "the title is the description."

It's become a kind of slang/meme thing. If it's used here, consider it a bleed-through like spelling "color" as "colour," referring to vacations as "holiday," or "useless parasite" as "the Queen."

No, I think that if you read the above comment by SteemPoweredKleenex, you'll clearly understand that the audience for this is the UK.


Yet, as an American, I can also appreciate straightforward and blunt ads like this. It's not hilarious, but it has some humor to it.

Well-played meta-humour.
