That's one of my favourite ads lately, Patrick. I have to admit that I expected it to have been digitally manipulated. Watching the making of the ad was interesting... they pulled some strings getting permission to fling all those balls. Thanks for sharing.

Yep I couldn't agree more :o) I wonder what their last thoughts were? A bit like all the chips that give there 'all' so that we may clog up our hearts & pass on happy :o)

On topic - although this subject is off topic, oops - how about the Pepperami ad's? The blender one just has 'edge' don't you think? :o)

I'll give guinness a call and suggest it Smile

his first John Smith's ad

"'ave it"

with the footy players was fantastic too - it's the little details, like brushing the 1/2 time oranges aside for a pint...

My Oxo cubes are harassed by the out of date baby beetroots & last Xmas's Ocean Spray Cranberry jelly... As an experienced Pepperami eater I have to tell you that you need to keep them cool in the refridgerator... They can beat up your egg's (get it?) in there for you if you like? :o)

The Peter Kay John Smiths ad's were very good especially where he let's his mother know that he is putting her in a Home :o)

Great Sony ad! I remember walking up those hills last year. Think that throwing balls down them might have been more fun.

Favorite ad - RWhites Secret Lemonade Drinker. Friend of mine is still receiving money from that everytime it turns up on a 100 best of all time program (ie. every other week on Channel 4). She was the one in the nightie!

How about the old Harp Lager advert where a chap goes back to a ladies place to find her annoying dog. He bounces a ball and it goes out of the window - closely followed by the mutt ! "time for a sharp exit"

Another ad that could be number one was the Observer/Gaurdian b&w ad about the skinhead running down the road made to appear as if he had mugged someone ... but hadn't etc and peoples perceptions based on a 'narrow' perspective... I seem to recall they ran the ad in the newspapers to. Ther were other versions of the same theme.

R Whites has a lot to answer for :o) Mother-in-laws have always been a target for humour I'm surprised they havn't started a self help group yet especially with the late Les Dawson one liners... :o)
