Joe McKinney. A would-be actor who was last seen working in a pub in Dublin whilst trying to overcome alcoholism. Sad story really.
Music was Guaglione by Perez Prez Prado for those that are interested.

That Guinness Dancing Man ad was excellent - thanks for that link! What I have realised is that as the years pass the ad's seem to refect some of the mood of the UK... I wonder what 'PPPPick up a penguin' said about us? :o)
No idea, but I bet it made life hell for poor old Arkwright.
Not really......it just brought everyone into HIS world
"Granville! Get me one of those, one of those, one of those P P, biscuits that can't fly by themselves will you" :o)
If I hadn't seen the making-of I'd have assumed it was CGI because everything seems to be these days - nice to see something done for real. It doesn't increase my interest in the product though - they never do.
Peter, were you a 'secret lemonade drinker' then?
Cheesiest had to be the Nescafe ads that ran and ran with crys from me and my my mates 'for god sake just get on with it' (or words to that effect which I cant use on here as Im a Mod!!!!)
What about the original 'Williams where else' with the man running wearing a tight body suit!
Outstanding commercial Patrick. the b&w about guinness is quite impressive as well. I have a terrific one about a brand of sun glasses on my pc, but wouldn't know where to put it up and link it :o(
here in the US, the commercials are far funnier than the comedy shows, one of my favs was a car commercial where there are two blokes in the car and everytime the passenger raises his mug to take a drink the driver taps lightly on the brakes, after the 3rd time the passenger looks at the driver and says "very mature"....just cracks me up!
another one from the US is a cell phone commercial, where a bloke is having trouble getting through the automated menu to a call center, when he does at last get to speak with an "advisor" the train he is on goes under a tunnel and he loses his signal....fantastic stuff....lol
This is also pretty neat.
ITV-HD have shown the Sony ad in full, it's much longer then a minute and in it's native Hi-Def it's truelly outstanding.
This one from the National Lottery 'Big Win'. It's not only well designed and made, it also makes you all warm and fuzzy inside (:0)
Oo! Oo! Oo! I just found another from the Yellow Pages in the US! Kung Fu Clowns!
What more could you ask for!?
The Kung Fu Clowns has a certain quality about it's finer points :o) The Lotto ad is Tim Burton'esk... not a bad thing really :o)
The ITV Digital 'Monkey' ad's with Johnny Vagas captured the spirit of the nation of monkey's in their day... :o)
One from the early nineties with 'Venus in Furs' by the Velvet Underground as a soundtrack - think it was for Dunlops tyres - very surreal.
