    I'm just sat watching my recording of Lois and Clark and seen ASDA's George back to school advert with the kids singing 'Can't stop me now' - love the sound in this advert (if only there was a full version of the song :()

    So what's your advert you can't stop watching?

    I get a kick out of the new Volkswagen commercial:

    Lowest ego emissions of any German sedan.

    Considering I have a BMW 545 I feel they're speaking to me. Where is the humility? :D

    I like the gymnast in the Skoda ad, very clever.

    I quite like this ad. I have other favourites, but I can't think of any at the moment.

    Not really adverts, but I like the trailer segments on E4 where they gently take the piss out of their own programmes.

    I don't think I actually like any adverts. I simply despise the thought that some 30-something, open-collared suit wearing, coke-snorting advertising exec wanker thinks he/she's so clever they can manipulate me into buying their crappy product. The adverts I despise the most is the ones you can see straight through. I honestly get angry watching them.

    However, there is a really funny article on the first page of the Guide which comes in the Saturday Guardian which I look forward to every week. It almost partly vindicates the existence of adverts.

    Apparently they were gonna get them to sing "Wanna Be In My Gang", but they had to scrap it for some reason :confused: :p

    Are you kidding me? Ugh, I *hate* that advert :mad: the only current ad that drives me more insane is the Admiral car insurance one.

    Good job no advertising execs ever visit this site or they might be offended by that :D

    Dunlop 'Unexpected' springs to mind from the mid '90's.

    As do the Renault Laguna ad's from '98 I think.

    Nah...I meant it in an affectionate way.

    Of course I've never met an advertising exec. But I prefer creating OTT Dickensian charictures of people purely in my mind that meetin people and forming my opinions on sound reality :p

    I forget what company it is, but I like those credit card commercials with those people doing the voice-overs. The two old ladies sitting on the couch, pretending to be the two bikers who stole their credit cards...doing imitations of what the stolen bikes sound like

    "It was like, WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
    "Nah, it was like, WOOOOOHWOHWOHWOHWOWOWH"

    :D

    Here's what I said in this recent thread:

    Right now, I'm really diggin' the commercials where they take old footage and make it new. Like Gatorade's MJ vs. MJ ad, adidas' Muhammad vs. Laila, or Gatorade's (again) Fraction Off.

    (I have no idea what the official names of the ads are.)
