Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

We've had two Dysons. One (a little green one with retractable cable) worked brilliantly for years, and we only got rid because it started sparking.

The second one (which we have now) blocks every time we use it, and despite their ads loses almost all suction regularly. This is despite it being cleaned out every time we use it. I suspect the only reason we haven't binned it and gone for another brand is that we spent nearly £300 on the damn thing.

What this one TD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT3BnwoGI78

I love it for no other reason than the two actors remind me of a manager and supervisor I once had and the likeness is so uncanny I can't help but laugh every time I see it, bad I know but they were really horrible people to work under.

Who's the guy in the Apple music ad? The one who's wearing the red Britney outfit. Talk about snaky hips.
