@JCDecaux_UK tweeted about a new ad placed in the UK by Google for Google Voice.

The ad is on the Clapham Colossus, which I guess is this well known railway ad spot. I believe it was done by the JCDecaux agency.

The tweet was posted this morning noon time in Europe.

It reads, "soo pah hak la frah jah lis tik eks pee ah lee doh suh." Which I have honestly no idea what it means. I assume it should read the other way but again, if any readers can help me out? Is it German?

Update: I am dumb, this is from Mary Poppins, her Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious line. Thanks Stuart!

Via Twitter and Twitpic.

I can't actually remember at the moment, saw then the other day when I popped up to London for a few beers, hence the lack of memory... still they were on trains, tubes & billboards, all in the same theme, excapt not quite as long :)

There are a ton of variations on these ads. They are done by ad agency BBH. Others I've seen: Les-tuh Skwair leyt nyte ven-yooz at Old Street thear-tah ti-kits at Holborn ley-tist skohrz at Hammersmith

that is Google Voice Search. It is not the same service as Google Voice, which WOULD of been news in the UK.
