Does anyone know if the tune is real or specific to the advert? Not my fave ad, but the tune is excellent.

I would imagine it was written for the ad, it certainly sounds generic enough.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The 'Paula the cow' advert for Dr Oetker's new yoghurt range. It's one of the euro adverts, dubbed into the language of the country it's transmitted in.

The lip sync on this is truly dire...

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I have to say that my favourite ad at the moment is the ING one with the little girl splashing through puddles.She is so cute...and I don't usually go for cute.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Worst: Any & all "Howard" adverts for Halifax.


Neither best nor worst... just, well, a bit rude...

The new ad for Creme Egg Twisted.

Talking about cute, theres one on at the moment where they show these young babies having a fit of the giggles, I think its for Cow and Gate, it would melt the hardest heart.
