    Dunphy is hard on the drink, judging by his face.

    the video is blocked by my work but I will hazard a guess and say you're talking about the Cadbury advert?

    You have to take each advert on its merits, Bill.

    It's like an Apres Match skit.

    I don't think some of you understand how advertising works. ;)

    that condescending insurance ad with Katie Taylor in it.

    We do. The fact of the matter is it's raising publicity. Cadbury's advertising execs would be delighted to see this being discussed on social media.

    Doesn't stop it from being cringeworthy though.

    Any of the Lynx ads. They're all just god-awful.

    Mission accomplished I would say, here we are talking about the advert..........
    Well done Cadbury

    "all time"? Really?

    I thought that was a pretty cool ad. That was one of their first mad ad's that they seem to be producing in recent years. I think the gorilla playing the drums came along after that.

    If I had underworld connections, I'd have put a hit out on those kids.

    Forget the hitmen id call the priest from the exorcist, they are obviously possessed.

    There was one with another Irish boxer who'd won a medal.

    If was for Centra or Spar or something. Just him standing there throwing punches and looking embarrassed. Each time he threw a punch, a special offer appeared on the screen.
