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.
I slightly preferred their one set in the men's changing room called "Shower", where there was an enthusiastic large hairy hugger, and a very reluctant scrawny huggee. The punch line was "Paddy Power can't get your dignity back but......."
The ad finished with the toes of the hugger caressing the, by now horrified, toes of his victim.
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
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...
There are certainly some excellent Guinness ads. I really like this one:
The soundtrack is Leftfield who I was a big fan of when it came out.
Then I also enjoyed this one:
Sonos & Apple TV -> Cyrus 8XPD (with PSX-R) -> Cyrus X Power -> Spendor A5
Sony Blu Ray & Sky HD & Apple TV -> Sony Surround Amp -> Jamo Surround Speaker Kit.
One of my Irn Bru favourites.
This advert for Audio-Technica headphones is amazing.
I have a sneaky suspicion that this guy might be a robot.

Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
Hi, hi, sorry.

Can't do a youtube link because I'm at work, but the Budweiser (I will NOT call it beer) commercial where the Budweiser frogs get electrocuted.
One on-looking chameleon says to the other "Murray, some time EVERY frog has to croak..."
Not sure I'd go so far as to say all are appalling but I basically completely agree with your sentiment - I hate adverts, I find them incredibly intrusive and don't watch the light channel or channel 4 because of them. I really hate them, even though some of them are very creative.

I love this advert for specsavers, it had me in stitches.
It was better on the tv though because i had a problem with buffering.

For humour, the old Hamelt ads were great. I remember the last night cigar ads were allowed on the TV and Hamelt took every slot on ITV in a last hurrah.
For American humour, sorry humor, the Budweiser frogs' demise (here's a compilation):
And, of course, the Cadburys Dairy Milk "Phil Collins" gorilla:
I am probably not allowed to link it BA, but one of your links led to banned funny ads of 2013 which i thought was very very funny.
