Maybe it’s the time of year, but I’m watching a bit more TV than usual and find myself muttering how TV adverts are not what they used to be! :wink:

So I thought we could have bit of fun with this here in the Pure Planet Community - what are your fav (or most annoying!) TV ads?

A lot of them seem to be on YouTube, so you get bonus points (not that there are any points available here :laughing: ) for embedding a video.

One of mine was the Madness-style Colgate toothpaste ad. I definitely remember reinacting this at school a few times!

 

 

I’m sure I’ll remember a few more, but over to you guys!

Love this one. 

All the car ones. I’ll try find them on YouTube.

 

Then years later the laws/rules changed and car adverts got really boring.

Unfortunately the Strada commercial lasted longer than the cars did….

 

Unfortunately the Strada commercial lasted longer than the cars did….

Not in my second-hand experience, my circle of friends had: A Strada 65, two 105TCs (one series 1 in black, one series 2 in black), two 130TCs (one white, one red), and I have memories of a dark blue 55ES in the hands of someone.
This was somewhere between 1991 and 1998, so even the ‘newest’ car was at least 6 years old.

Do you mean to say you watch the advertisements?! They pass me by, my brain switches off. I rarely see them in newspapers and magazines. I was once the subject of a survey about a recent advertisement and the interviewer was getting more frustrated because I had not seen the advertisement despite apparently it being prominently displayed in a newspaper I read. It turned out it was one for Barclays Bank. A full page one. 

Talking of that I believe full page or large advertisements are not seen as much as smaller ones. But that’s a different subject.

I loved this one. 
 

Can’t believe it was 2007, seems like way way back 🤪

@David j an absolute classic :joy:  whenever I hear that song I think of the gorilla! Cadburys often do great ads :ok_hand:

This one is frequently sung in my house… 

 

Ah, thanks guys I’m loving watching all these old ads.

But I think I’ve found the one that beats them all. Back in the days when ads for cigarettes and cigars was allowed! :astonished:

Remember this one?
