    What was your favourite tv advert?

    Mine has to be from quite a while ago...King Kong is climbing the Empire state building to get the girl, reaches her room but when he looks in she's sitting there eating Weetabix so he starts to whistle and cleans the windows instead!
    It's sort of a "you had to see it for it to be funny" but it always made me laugh. The look on his face while he was whistling was priceless. :D :D

    The Bernard Matthews one advertising some new product, with the band on there, and a close up of me eating the thing.

    Well actually, that's my least favourite ad!!!!

    I guess now living in the US, I'm fed up with damn Adverts !! We have more commercials than programmes !

    Commercial after the opening credits, 5 mins TV, Commercial etc...... Commercial before the Ending credits, and after them aswell !

    Money talks, I guess....

    Mine is the Strongbow advert where Jerry Hall walks into a bar, orders a pint, downs it in one, lets out an almighty belch and morphs into Johnny Vaughan in 'Jerry Hall' drag, taking off his wig and saying 'Well come on, what did you expect?', and then strolls out of the bar!

    Little things...etc. ;-)

    I don't know, I always change the channel when the ads start.
    And when I watch television, I mostly watch the Flemish Public Broadcasting channels. They have (almost) no ads.
