Irrelevant adverts? by perfectbitch on 9 July 2007 3:33am
It just struck me as amusing to see ads for sun screens when the summer weather her is so awful. However, I have to say how much I enjoy the ad which has all the explosions of paint on and around a block of flats (I think it's Sony) and the ad for the baked car (Skoda?)

Just goes to show that an excellant ad doesn't necesserily do its job.

That paint ad is awesome! I know what you mean Linz, sometimes they are too clever and we miss the product. Or do we ?

We've got the paint ad in Oz too. It's fab!

Has everyone seen the "tongue" ad (it's rather old now) for Tooheys Extra Dry? It's totally gross and bizarre but the song is catchy and you just can't help but watch it. Here's the link:

I remember it Missy! I too like the 'paint' ad, and also like the ad for Persil Small & mighty - 'fireworks'.

Johhny - yes, I mean they are too clever. I thought the paint ad was Computer generated but it is real paint.

And this one for Ariston is good too.


But I'm sure there is another one similar which ends with a little boy looking into the washing machine?

I put a link up for that Skoda one a little while ago it's the best ad I've ever seen!

The one that gets me is where all the different horses are galloping across the screen. You have to see the ad about 4 times before you remember who the advertiser is and although I've seen it about 6 times I'm still not perfectly sure what is being advertised or who sponsored the ad.!

is it because skodas are made out of cake is the reason why people don't like them, sure its good for eating but driving one must be hell.
