    The taster starts tucking into the yogurts tells the king its very suspicious says " here have an apple". Then the king takes a bite and dies. If memory serves me right

    That's the one...

    The taster would eat something, say something like "Well, it won't kill ya"

    Eventually gets to the Petis Filious

    "Not sure about this one"
    "Dodgy, verrrry suspect, tell ya what, have an apple"

    King chokes and dies

    Can you not Google it yourself?

    Google doesn't seem to help.

    I shall recreate it here from memory.
    Scene:banqueting hall of the king.Food taster is seated to his right.First disgusting dish is presented to taster:
    Taster: (Cockney accent) "You're orlright with that".
    King eats reluctantly.
    Next disgusting fish based dish is presented.
    Taster:"Werl,it won't kill ya"
    King eats reluctantly.
    Delectatious dessert of some sort is presented.
    Taster:"I'm not sure about this"
    Taster takes another sample while eager king looks on expectantly.
    Taster:"Dodgy.Verrry suspect.Tell you what,you 'ave an apple"
    Taster hands apple to king,who promptly dies.

    I think I was pretty close all those years ago.

    It predates Petit Filous and was just for Yoplait Yoghurt.

    The link was made private which is a shame. Anyone have a copy of source for this. Yes I tried Google but my search obviously aren't up to it.

    Thanks!

    Was part of a series of at least three ads that ran circa 1985/86. The other two were on Kilinm2s YouTube channel which was taken down by a copyright strike. Of the other two one had a King pulling a lever and these guys whose yogurt wasn't to his liking would fall through a trapdoor. The other one was a spoof of the Arthurian Sword In The Stone tale with various characters trying to pull the sword out with increasingly over the top methods.

    There were two ads that unsettled the bejaysus out of me when I was a nipper.

    Paxo ad where a fella turns into the Incredible Hulk out of the blue at the dinner table. I'll never forget the first time I saw this.


    The other was for Wilkington Sword razors and had this unbeliveably creepy fella with a square head.

    IIRC it was an advert for Yoplait Petit Filous when they were first launched on the UK and Irish market in the mid 1980s.

    I remember the advert very well. 😊 The taster tells the king to try an apple whilst he finishes the Petit Filous and the king croaks it from poisoning. Lol

    I really think they made much better, more original TV adverts back then compared to today.
