Dave 2022-Present (Witty Bumpers)

Initially when the 2022 package was launched on Dave, break bumpers were reduced to a small set from the frequently refreshed witty 'text' versions that had gone before.

In late 2023, the witty bumper approach was reintroduced to the channel. Now mixing both images and text, once again in a regularly refreshed rotation. Along with bumpers to mark special occasions.

Dave (Break - Pong) - 2023

In a bumper harking back to one which had appeared in the previous package too, the Dave logo bounces around the screen like a game of Pong. Also making for a rare bumper from the channel that continues animating throughout the entire sequence.

Dave (Break - Scratch) - 2023

You would have to be above a certain age to remember the shortlived scratch and sniff TV fad of the 90s. But thankfully someone at Dave is clearly of that age!

Dave (Message - 25/12) - Christmas 2023

The non-decoration date argument for Christmas - do you end your advent calendar on December 24th or December 25th? Dave decided to go with the 25th, and put out one final message in the 9pm junction on Christmas Day 2023. Well it's a way to guarantee at least one primetime Christmas Day viewer!
