Greatest TV Advert

Trying to avoid going stir-crazy during lockdown, so - inspired by “Papa and Nicole”, what’s your candidate for the greatest TV advertisement?

My choice.

The product is not shown or mentioned - brilliant.

Funnily enough, I was watching the ‘But Seriously…’ Live Version last night- one of my all-time favourite concerts!

I still get this song stuck in my head sometimes

Haha, that may or may not have been going through my mind…:thinking:

I’d forgotted about the extended version. The key with this one is the colour of the wall. Superb. :+1:

Nissazn 300Zx Toys ad

Dunlop ad; stunning visuals, Velvet Undergound soundtrack and a gimp in a rubber outfit to advertise car tyres.

Honda’s Impossible Dream, the final version completes the story, whether on not the main protagonist lives in a ropey old caravan, as the price to pay for accessing a collection of Honda vehicles


This is the best ever, no question.


On our first meeting my girlfriend and I found we were both able to recite these two adverts*, so from being favourites, they’ll also be special.
This is such a cool, understated advert. The way he looks across and does up the window as he offers the punchline. Brilliant. I say every bit of the words wrong - there’s only one of use in this household who can speak German! :smiley:

I sometimes still say “A filet-o-fish for my wife” when I’m asked what I want for my dinner. Not annoying at all!

I had one of those Rover 800 Fastbacks, rock hard seats and unreliable electric bits

Another vote for the Carling Black Label Dambusters advert here!
It is one I have always remembered and I have just laughed so much watching it again!!

For Mash get Smash…!

Your Honda ad reminderd me of this.

Honda sent me a copy of their DVD which showed how it was made - all a single take and no trickery. Now all on Youtube.
