Nearly as bad is the stupid Challenge Churchill quiz questions thing - it's only a puppet you know.
Oh yes very creepy when they use children like that..

Playstation - Double Life. Just awesome.

A close second would be Honda's Impossible Dream.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I remember a Wheetabix ad from a while ago. the Black Beauty music was playing, and there was a black horse running over fields and through a wood.

When it got back to the stables the camera panned away for a split second then returned to one person lifting a pantomime horse's head off and saying something like 'That's was a good run. Same time tomorrow?'

A cracking ad...

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Another worst: The Nurofen advert where the stupid bird is a race engineer with a headache and her car is loosing. She takes a Nurofen straight away notices a big red turbo button, presses it and her car surges forward and wins.

10 year olds can do better. Is this really what we have come to?

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Bit of a bump... Does any one remember the KitKat advert where the football manager is giving his teamtalk but has loads of translatators trying to talk over him translating to all the different languages to all the different players. I think it was Kitkat anyway. Noone else seems to remember it and i'm wondering if I dreamt it now.

Yep, about 3m 05s in here.

Some of the other ads in that break made me giggle as well...

My favourite ad at the moment is for Berocca

Hope I can move as well as the bald guy when I reach his age...

Same as the Sugar Puff ad, that's getting flack for being a rip off.

Here

Still annoying though.

I bet it is. I reckon most advertising company's get their ideas from places like youtube etc... Time to copyright!

Edit: Come to think of it, I don't think you can copyright your vids on sites like YT can you?

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

This is my new favourite. I don't think it's been on UK television yet, as it only launched a few days ago. Nike seem to always mave great football adverts, and this is no exception. Great concept, great music, well shot and featuring my favourite team. I can easily watch it over and over again.
