I recall being completely thrown in Australia a number of years ago seeing a Sanitarium TV ad that proclaimed "Weetbix kids were Aussie kids". What? NOOOoooooo.....

I thought the Cadbury gorilla one was good. 10 years ago now, makes me feel old.


EDIT: How do I embed a YouTube video into the post, I can't make it work?





[ youtube ] TnzFRV1LwIo [ /youtube ] The bit after the equals. Also if you edit your spot it will remove the youtube videos. @freitasm



Thanks. I was putting the whole URL in between the BBCode tags.

only ads i see these days are on geekzone or at the movies.  Geekzones generally arent too bad, but ones at movies are long and boring.

I've always liked the Lotto 'making dream happen' Ad with the fisherman dad and pirate ship son.


That's pretty cool for warm fuzzies..

JimmyH:It's also why I annoy my family by changing stations on the car radio so frequently.



I don't have FTA television either - haven't since it went digital in Auckland and couldn't be bothered replacing the LNB in the Sky dish (not installed by me) or putting up a UHF. I figured there was nothing worth watching anyway and after a week I didn't miss it. I don't have a car stereo either - I prefer a contemplative silence and the smooth effortless burble of an I6 to the constant and pointless jibber-jabber of radio stations and I've no interest in faffing about with sorting out playlists.

When I see this ad I can't help but think how much of their winnings they must have wasted purchasing/renting a pirate ship. And don't get me started on the one with the lady who wins Lotto, doesn't tell her family and buries the winnings in the back yard!


However, I did like the this Lotto one:
