I like the Tango advert as well, but it led to many, many, slappings being given and taken when I was in school.

I like that Tango commercial, it's cute. I can see how it would be hazardous to the health of a young British child, though. ;)

Do you remember those stories about kids having their eardrums exploded by the slaps.


Oh and this one which ostensibly promotes the license fee but I'm not sure that's really what it's doing:

Really? Well I never got hit *that* hard. :)

I do remember another Tango advert that promised a full-size Harrier Jump-jet to the person who sent in a million ring pulls, only to go back on their word when someone actually did...

I LOOOOVE that old 90's Whatchamacallit candy bar commercial.  It was animated like the beginning to You Can't Do That On Television.

Only selling chocolate :D  Yum...

And the one for Blackcurrant Tango

Oh and while they are a little cosy I always rather liked the Maureen Lipman commercials for BT

The Honda "Cog" ad is probably my all time favorite:

All done without trickery, too.

Awesome, I'd never seen that one before.

And I didn't know the Accord came in a wagon.

I think my all time favorite add I only saw once.  It showed a little boy walking on a sidewalk.  Two bully kids are hanging out a window throwing coins at him every day when he goes home from school.  The kid picks up the coins as he's running away.  It shows the same thing through all kinds of different weather and through all  4 seasons.  The bullies just keep laughing and throwing coins.  Then it shows the bullies looking for the kid and then there eyes get really big and a shadow falls across them.  It shows the kid swinging a giant wrecking ball towards the building the bullys are in and then says "Put your money to good use."  The commercial was for some investment company or bank that I can't remember and I don't think it aired nationally.  It was pretty funny though.
