The specsavers ones are often quite good.  I actually belly laughed at one the other day with the security guard turning off all the lights in the museum until he flicked off the penis of one of the statues.

Cannot remember the cereal but it had some weird kid on it singing "They're gonna taste great."

He was so repulsively upbeat. There was a rumour that he killed himself, which turned out not to be true.

God, I wanted to hit that kid in the face.

The John Smiths ones just as Peter Kay was getting big were good, I re watched a few on YouTube the other day.

I still sing the words of this ad to this song.

Also the one below.

All adverts are shit. Some of them are moderately entertaining on first viewing. Ho-hum on second. After that, a massive irritant. 

I know I've done this rant in the Piss You Off thread, but if I had my way ALL unsolicited advertising would be banned.

Bing Crosby singing "you can be sure of Shell, Shell, Shell"! 

Carling Black Label (Dambusters) and Heineken (the water in Majorca) I think are also worth a mention.

Still used now when appropriate. Wonder how many people ( young ones...!) understand the origin.
