Funny Adverts

Recommended Posts

It's not very often that I come to love a TV advert. They're so rare.

I'm not talking about "good" adverts. For instance the Sky adverts with the cartoon characters and the "wee fee" are genuinely clever, really good marketing. As was the turnaround of Boots and Honda.

I mean ones that actually make you laugh. This one is especially memorable - the one with the bush baby and the pizza.

I don't watch much TV despite having Sky package and BT sports available. First time I've seen that ad; like it. :)

Two of my favs.

Not a TV ad but I quite liked the teletext holiday ads, especially the waiter, captures the awkwardness superbly!

Those were all great. Does anyone remember the Blackcurrant Tango ad - it was so long I only ever saw it aired once, was incredible at the time, absolutely mental.

I'm assuming most people find the "Fanny" advert fairly amusing, but there are many other Irn Bru ads made in the last few years that are too risque for prime-time TV, and end up tucked away at 2 in-the-morning, or are only shown in cinemas.

My favourite two follow below, but there are plenty more for a good chuckle at on YouTube... :)

I used to work in advertising but alas not cinema or TV advertising - I always toyed with pitching this one

Using the infamous footage in Last Tango in Paris

but ending with a pack shot and a Brando impersonator voiceover at the end delivering the line
