this was a while back shooting bad guy chasing man and lady etc do you remember?
Humanity is not humane...
I like the WKD advert when the woman is relaxing in a hot bath to some relaxing music. Then the husband bursts in with a newspaper for a "number 2" and says "sorry luv, couldn't wait"
I'm lovin' the VW golf adverts that are showing at the moment, my favourite one is where the golf is on the shelf in the market next to the fruit & veg, but the newsagent one is quite funny when the man behind the counter say's to the woman, "would you like a bag with that".

Ooo, a resurrected thread...
I've got the world's worst long term memory, but I think the Barclaycard ads with Rowan Atkinson were very funny
"take over a Boff would you moment..." THUD!!
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
a lot of the 1980 Carling black label adverts.
is always the main one i remember.
Not a HiFi Nut. Just has a pile of Nads.
Because it finally helped convince me to buy a Humax PVR and never have to watch a TV advert ever again!
('Go Compare' also for much the same reasons. The ad execs responsible should be locked in a small cubicle, for at least a year, whilst their 'SHOUTING' ads are played really loud on a continuous loop for 24 hours a day, every day.)
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Apple iPad Mini • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
I had forgotten so many of those ads, wonderful trip down memory lane. However, my vote goes to...
For the music, creativity, and Rutger Hauer making money of off his Blade Runner persona. A truly endless advert...
CDP-337ESD ~ MDS-JE520 ~ TU-1800DAB ~ DACMAGIC 2i ~ PM-66KI ~ LD50DMS
The Funniest ads I have seen, that would be 'Never Say No To Panda' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X21mJh6j9i4&feature=plcp
Best Ad though, this BMW short film from The Hire series called 'Star' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRfjW1cj2E0&feature=plcp
This I rate as the best ad just because it worked on me... Still to this day whenever I see an E39 M5 I think of this short, and associate it with humiliated Madonna. Still want one

Well the one that sticks in my mind is the Fiat Strada advert from 1979: "Handbuilt by Robots"
It's completely memorable, spawned send ups (Remember the Not the Nine O'clock News sketch - "Handbuilt by Roberts"?) - and even manages to tip its hat to the Italian Job at the end
Even more interesting, the advert was made while the Fiat workers were on strike - over the introduction of Robots!
And it was only ever shown as an advert THREE TIMES on British TV (IIRC) - and is quoted by many as the most memorable advert of all time...

IMHO, the best BMW short was/is Beat The Devil: James Brown, Gary Oldman, Clive Owen, Danny Trejo + a great director...
Paddy Power's blind footballer kicking the cat really made me laugh. Not the best advert ever, but definitely one of the funniest.
Can't do the link because of the usual swearing on You Tube, but it is on there if you want a good laugh.

Internet - laptop - DAC - amp - lots of headphones.

Now, we all hate adverts, but there are some that we really do enjoy and actually want to watch again. For example the Sony Bravia ad's. Now, I want all of you to post a link down below to your favourite advert of all time. Try and find a video of it on YouTube or somewhere else.
Here is my favourite advert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ3d3KigPQM#movie_player
