The Classic Commercials Thread

Recommended Posts

Perhaps the finest orchestration of this piece ever created for record, and what a meticulous stop-motion action!

and that classic, back then taking half of the eastern Europe by storm (in various language versions) and driving sales of Ferrero up

To a child it seemed very stylish.

Once upon a time, UK ads. had style, panache, and - dare I say it - a sort of honesty. You wanted to watch them. Joan Collins and Leonard Rossiter with Cinzano; Anthony Head and friend, with Gold Blend; Lynda Bellingham and family with OXO ("remember Preston?"); Cooper and Keegan ("splash it all over").

Now, it's just satutated, empty, relentless, "who the fuck cares?" dog shite.

The thumbnail of this YouTube video is quite racy, my apologies, but there is a Levis commercial in here at 4:40 that feels 20 years ahead of its time.  High quality.

Apparently, this singularly focused commercial was directed by the guy who made Chariots Of Fire, Hugh Hudson, who is now married to Bond actress Maryam D'abo.
