OK, this shows how much of a TV addict I am but right now two of my favourite adverts are the b/w Lexus ad with those fantastic dancers and the Freeserve ad with the cat and the budgie! Very different but they are my current about you?

Mcvities kittens and puppies do it for me every time at the moment

A friend's DGD does the voiceover for the current Haribo advert- she is very sweet!

This one has me in tears of laughter grin

Crossed post, Soutra grin

Brilliant. Just wondering if that's the one made by a friend's DS, must find out!

the one with the pretty girl twins - one of them has a girlfriend. No idea what it is advertising though. Do you ever find that the advert actually distracts you from the product?

Many times Jess and when it's finished I can't remember what was actually being advertised.

I guess you'd have to say the ad fails if we can't remember the product.

Same here!

Love the Specsavers ad with the shepherd

I have to go to youtube to see adverts as we record and fast forward everything. There is a one with a little girl on a bike with a cat in the basket, that's good and I love the Haribo one. GD and I saw it first at the cinema and we laughed at the silly grown ups grin

I love the cat and the budgie one, also the Mercedes one with the chickens, ho do the chickens do that? grin

The girl with the cat advert

This always makes me think of DGD2 grin

My favourite advert, not sure anyone ill remember this, was an advert for Farrows Pees and the jingle was--sorry mate your too late all the pees have gone to Farrows, it would be great if anyone remembers that

We liked the specsavers one with the old couple who ate the cheese sandwiches - 'what sort of cheese was that?' And the shepherd one as well.
Haribo and girl with a cat are both great!

rosesarered Fri 28-Feb-14 20:06:25

Should that be peas?hmm

rosesarered Fri 28-Feb-14 20:08:48

I do vaguely remember the Farrows advert, what a memory you havecarnationa
my favourite ad at the moment is the Corsa car ad, with all the coloured smoke.

carnationa Fri 28-Feb-14 20:15:04

no rose I prefer pees he he he he

I used to like the Guiness ads, particularly the 'white horses' and the surfer.

My current favourite is the girl with cat. The song has re-entered the charts as a result.

Icyalittle Fri 28-Feb-14 20:30:11

Rats! I mis-read the title as favourite adverbs. I was hoping to share something quite different.....

penguinpaperback Fri 28-Feb-14 20:33:16

I do find the cat and little girl funny. It must remind so many of us of our GDs.

Deedaa Fri 28-Feb-14 22:49:14

I love the Specsavers shepherd ad but my favourite is the cats with thumbs! I'm just waiting for my four to take over the world!

Ana Fri 28-Feb-14 22:51:50

Icy! grin
