Four or Six?

When I was a young copywriter we had a Head Of Copy at the agency.

Suffice to say no Head Of Copy looked at this ad.

Oh come on!

Everyone (including my mum) knows that if you hit the ball over the boundary in cricket you score six runs.

Which of course you couldn't do if there were no boundaries in cricket.
