A finger o' Fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat,
A finger o' Fudge is just enough until it's time to eat,
It's full of Cadbury's goodness, and very small and neat,

I can remember the Levi Advert. Everyone went crazy about the song, but then were pissed when they realised that the cool fast song lasted all of 5 seconds on the actual track, and the rest was pretty poor.


I love this advert. I caught this on one of those funny TV advert shows, so dramatic, but so funny. I'd love to do this in a Tesco Car Park on a Saturday afternoon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaqpI2f_B5I

The crab version is superb as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0ASkqDdO8Q

These ads were directed by Stephen Chow or Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, both excellent movies.

Try this not a favourite of mine but utterly creepy-I guarantee some kids in the 08's were mentally scarred by watching this?

Enjoy....or not as the case may be?

For me it has to be the Diet tango ads.

YOU NEED IT BECAUSE YOUR, WEAK!

Does not allow you to eat willy nilly

Tango have always had some great adverts, the blackcurrent tango ad with the boxing ring on the white cliffs of dover is another classic
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGjizZCX ... re=related

Id never seen this tango ad before until today, its a parody of the sony advert and it quite amusing too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjHzS_tw ... re=related

Finally this other parody ad, this time for iron bru take the mickey out of 80s pepsi ads http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4PxuFQC ... re=related

BTW i hardly drink fizzy pop so not quite sure why i like the ads that much. lol
