(sigh) Favourite Adverts Ever!

Post by TwoHeadedBoy » Fri Oct 16, 2009 7:57 pm

Yep, probably been done before, but it's a bit of fun for a Friday night, right? Or Saturday morning, if we're being pedantic.

My all-time favourite ever is this one: The dancing milk bottles!

Followed by the obvious: The Red Car and the Blue Car!

It's good-natured spin-off: The Sattelite and the Meteor!

And then there's: The Domestos germs!

And finally, a more recent one, from 1996: Quavers!

There's more of course, but I don't want to take them all up in one post, or something like that.

My favourite ever advert. Ticks all the right boxs; alcoholic , funny and patriotic - perfect before a Germany vs England footie match (which was the last time I saw it a few years ago.

Also loved this series of adverts back in the 80s , mainly because I've always admired 'Arfur' - this is the best of the bunch

Never seen that Milk Maid advert, really enjoyed it though. Reminds me of Michel Gondry's films, a tiny bit.

And that Carling one! Completely forgot about that one!

There's one of those phone adds, you know where you text in your number to meet like minded people in your area, that features women bouncing around on space hoppers, absolutely fantastic!

One of my favourite adverts I haven't seen for about 10 yrs, can't find it on the internet anywhere & I mean anywhere! It was the Tekken 2 advert which showed some asian students training in a temple or something and one of the duing Yoshimitsu's teleport/translocation move, can remember the voice-over bloke saying "Translocation, what is the secret to this strange phenomenon?"

Never seen it since, if anybody has seen it or knows where you can view it let me know & my eternal quest will be over!

Cool advert, but, yeah the Mail on Sun or the Mail anyday of the week isn't really a 'quality read'!

My favourite I will never find.....an old Lucozade ad from around the time of Prodigy's "Firestarter". An elderly american gent in a Jonny Cash style is going to sing a nice song about a boy and his puppy, drinks some Lucozade, and turns into a pee-take of The Prodigy's Keith Flint!

Wish i could find it again! :(

Yeah, I remember that one, but wasn't it Irn Bru?

This one's my favourite Lucozade advert: From 1996.

That Burger King one? I don't get it, sorry...

But that one with the sunbeds, yes! Forgot all about that one! Being 8 at the time, I didn't get the reference, but now it's good.
