I only really like the funny ones - and there aren't so many of those these days.

One for, I think, Guinness always made me laugh.

Two men sitting in a kitchen poring over something. One gets up and says:

"Oh, come on, the atom's small enough already, let's go down the pub".

And the Smash instant potato one was funny too.

Put a Tiger in your Tank, (that's if you weren't already going well on Shell, Shell, Shell). Remember those tiger tails?grin

Hard to beat the Smash advert!😄
The meercats get on my nerves. I quite like the cat that crashes through the wall to get at the pack of Dreamies.
Also like the sausage dog ads for cricket.
The Guinesss ads were always good, remember the white horses ( waves)?

Spec Savers, the one with the vet and the cat not breathing.

Bassetts jelly babies (but that was a long time ago)

We Always mute the TV when adverts come on now, I did like the olden days ones though with the late Linda Bellingham was it Oxo and the one where she used to say remember Preston when driving in the car with her husband.

Oh and Pepsodent pink toothpaste.... I wonder where the yellow went lol 😆

Hope no one says the June advert, the woman with the parsnips is their favourite.

Esther1 Tue 24-Sep-19 17:22:28

Maureen Lipman and Yellow Pages ..... classic comedy timing with the grandson who’d failed his exams.

I have 2 favourite tv adverts , the first was for kitkats where the photographer waiting patiently for the bear to come out of hiding but stopped and turned round for his KitKat , just as the bear emerged and danced around .The other is for Specsavers where the vet thinks the cat is not breathing . It's the bit where the cat gulps at the end that makes me chuckle.

Martini with Lorraine Chase.
Then with Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter

The John Lewis one with Billy Joel singing “She’s always a woman to me”- makes me cry.

The hunky lad taking his jeans off in the launderette- can’t recall what the advert was for though! Was it Levi’s?

angelic Tue 24-Sep-19 20:59:14

Yes chaffinch it was Levi’s 😁

The one, I think it was British Gas, where the dog, cat and mouse are all sitting in front of the fire and the dog kisses the cat on the nose and the cat kisses the mouse. Also liked the tune that went with it but annoyingly can't remember what is was at the moment.
