Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Best advert ever is the VW Golf night driving one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U9I7QrpSkk
However the series of Sony Bravia ones "Paint" "Plasticine" "Foam" etc were brilliant

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The best ad i like is with the little white dog and rabbit FRIENDS:

https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl...dvert+with+dog

The most naff is the Colgate advert [WHERE HAS THE TOOTHPASTE GONE TO] when they brush their teeth.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Can't find it on youtube but the advert for RAF technician. All very good until you see the gormless looking twit saluting at the end. If I was a pilot I'd run a mile if he was servicing my ride.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The latest Sky advert telling us we can rent the latest box office movies and get the dvd sent to us drives me up the wall. How smug the guy in the ad is,just want to slap his smug face! What tv show was/is he in by-the-way anyone?

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The new Honda "The Other Side" for the Civic and Civic R ad is really well done

Press R during playback to switch seamlessly to the other side

I really dislike the Iceland advert with Peter Andre.

I just wondered. I personally haven't bought a DVD for years because of Bluray. I just wondered is others still bought DVDs over Bluray still.
