    (hope this has not been mentioned before)
    after seeing the "yop" advert back on tv it made me wonder -

    Present: has to be the classic 'Clever / Dumb Balance' ads re a certain credit card.

    Previous: 'It's for me and my dawg" - the kia-ora advert I only ever saw in a cinema.

    I like the woman's tantrum at the supermarket for Vicks's First Defence!
  5. This HAS been done before, yonks ago... but I'll say the same again cos it's a cool thread.

    The rolo advert from a while back.

    Little boy in 1960s watches a parade go past, and he waves a rolo in an elephants face... teasing it. Then the advert moves to the present time, and little boy is not so little anymore. Hes watching the same parade, and an elephant goes past and whacks him full belt across the face. "An Elephant Never Forgets" appears on the screen. GENIUS!!

    I also like the one HBB mentioned. That woman havign a paddy - absolute classic. Supermarkets will never be the same again......

    I liked the Guiness Tick follows Tock advert.
    The horses in the waves effect was obviously inspired by the Lord of the Rings and it was actually far superior to the film version.

    In Kiwiland. One of the most popular adverts is for 'Novus' who fix chipped windscreens. Several burly men in boiler suits sing a very catchy tune with the words ' Show us your crack', Show us your Crack'. :eek:

    I kid you not. Needless to say it's my kids favourite song. :rolleyes: :biggrin:

    Sheilas Wheels, love it.

    I also like the lastminute.com advert with the old guy saying he would give anything for one minute more. I think he should watch what he says cos has anyone noticed he already appears to have given his right arm!!!! mwahahaha

    Probably the other way round! The Guinness ad first aired in 1999, whilst it was another two years before Fellowship came to screens.

    ditto (although I believe it is Guinness)

    Present: The Guinness reverse evolution
    Past: Kia-Ora (Have to agree with John) IT IS too orangey for crows (and I've just been sent an mp3 of it - could be my new ringtone for 2006!)

    Fave ad Present: the latest Honda advert where the guy switches from various bikes/cars/speedboat & ends up in a hot air balloon..not a bad soundtrack either!

    Fave ad Past:- i think it was late 80s/early 90s, the ad for milk with the 2 young schoolkids coming back from football..."Accrington Stanley, who are they??"

    As a Huddersfield Town fan...we later found out "EXACTLY" who they were :0(

    Yes I know. I meant the image was inspired by the book and although the ad came out first they made a far better job of it than the film did years later.
  16. i quite like the sheilas wheels one too but its getting quite sad that i know the words!! but i think we're all forgetting the ULTIMATE advert!! - the coca cola christmas advert is surely the best!!!!

    I have just seen the advert for the brand new Honda Civic. It has a choir performing the soundtrack of all the sounds that the Civic makes / encounters on a trip! It is fantastically well done.

    Previous one has to be the Yellow pages one where the uncle cuts the hair of his neice and makes a proper hash of it!

    I like the one where the Dad is giving the lad a roasting and the little girl asks how the wholes get in the crumpets and the Dad says its little lepricorns jumping up and down with golf shoes. :) That is just soooo the silly things Dads say to little kids. :rolleyes:
