Cadbury's, 'Smash Mash'

(from the 70`s – sorry i`m old)  - I can still remember the line “they peel them with their little metal knives” and the alien that is laughing with his legs in the air. Amazing ad/ Revolting product!

Hovis, 'The last 122 years'

This shows the product transcend the years. I could watch it continuously for the brilliant filming.

Sony, 'Coloured Balls'

Stunning imagery and a great tune
