    Seeing as there is already a thread on ads we hate-and there are a lot of them-I just thought I'd start one on the ads we might actually like(this will probably be a short thread coz most of them are crap nowadays and the best are from decades ago).

    I think the Snickers ads with Joan Collins are hilarious....
    The one about broadband when he is trying to talk to his girlfriend on the laptop but her signal keeps breaking up and she is only getting bits of what her boyfriend is saying.....
    Paul O'Connell doing Pinergy-priceless!!
    The AIB ad where you see a helicopter view of Dublin's Custom House and George's Quay.....

    What ads,if any,do ye like?

    I generally like the ads for Gillette Venus where girls are showing off their freshly shaved legs. I love them ones. But sometimes I think my missus is looking at me as I'm looking at the telly to see if I'm enjoying it too much, so I do be a bit awkward looking at it. Sometimes I hurt my eyes as I'm pretending to be looking in the other direction. But I've nailed the technique now.

    The only advert i like is the Doritos advert with the Mexicans singing I Love Rock n Roll. The rest are spirit crushing LIIIIEESSS.

    Aer Lingus - "You're Home 1990" - played it for my 11 yr old boy and he was wiping away the tears . Possibly the best Irish ad ever .

    It's doing better then the previous 2 threads. Neither of them made it past the first page. :pac:

    Adverts you like!

    Adverts that you LIKE

    I usually find that if I like the song - I will also like the Ad.

    The new Marmite advert is a good one ...

    Bump!

    How come the Ronseal ads don't feature this guy any more? He was perfect for them...



    Perhaps his best performance, though, was this:

    Other Guy: "I want a wood stain from Ronseal that lasts 5 years."
    Him: "What you need is Ronseal 5 Year Wood Stain."
    Other Guy: "Where would I find that, then?"
    Him: "In a tin, with Ronseal 5 Year Wood Stain on it."

    :D:D:D:D
