Anyone remember a TV advert where it cut between vendors in Glasgow shouting "Evenin Tyyymmes" to vendors in Edinburgh shouting "eeeev'in News..."?

I think it was for Scotrail?

Sure do. I remember it well.

Im sure there was a series of these adverts. Another one was two posh women; one would say "Kelvinside" and the
other would say "Morningside". This would go on for about 30 secs while they both got angrier.

My favourite was the guy who was outside Marks and Spencers in Argyle Street for years, who would shout 'Evening' in a slow, deep voice, then bark the word 'TIMES!' over and over again. I remember walking past one day when he must have had a cold, or a sore throat, and he kept going all high-pitched on the word 'times', :)

I seem to remember reading (probably in the Times) that his name was Vince Ferguson.
