So, on last week's episode Rob asked us which adverts of the 80s (and early 90s) did you love? We gave our answers, but now it's YOUR turn. Which ads do you love? Which ads do you hate? And which current ads annoy you the most?
Growing up I always remember four adverts that I'd always see when rewatching taped VHS copies on the sixties Batman show on channel 4; firstly was the muller light advert with the cartoon ship captain and the song 'this is captain of your ship calling...' the song always made that one of my favourites, secondly was the phonebook adverts Bob Hoskins used to do. Then, there was a banking advert from I think HSBC were a woman is in the rain trying to get to work and all bad things happen to her, a taxi splashes her with a puddle, her card snaps and the heel of her shoe breaks all shown with some good music in the background that seemed very 90s. Scariest advert though was twisslers were this couple would go in this haunted house with this creepy old woman and they look up to find all the twisslers hanging from the ceiling, creepy!
The ads that annoy me now is the lloyds bank advert with the pink ladies give the money so the girl can go to school, its sweet and all but when its on constantly it gets a bit grating. The borrow money ones annoy me especially when you see how much you have to pay back! How can they even advertise that?! its scandalous!! Anyway that's enough from me enjoy the show guys.
The ad for the A La Carte Kitchen from Bluebird toys. When it comes to food I'll give all kinds of weird stuff a try but I think even I would draw the line at (presumably cold) baked beans and a Swiss roll, as prepared by the girl in this advert. Re-watching it now, I realise I'd forgotten that the girl prepares it to give to her father for his breakfast at that. From how smartly she's dressed, one can assume she's been up for hours planning her culinary delights... The ad plays her off as cutely precocious but if that were how my days were starting I'd probably get her sectioned.
