For sheer sexiness, you can't beat the old school Flake ads (not that pale imitation with Joss Stone)

Pretty much every advert since has been pants. No point in posting the worst ones, just stick the telly on at any point, they are pure torture these days. CAN'T FIND CHEAP CAR INSURANCE? To be honest I either turn over or Mute/Turn the sound off, stopped watching them a long time ago, so maybe I have missed a gem, I doubt it.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The ad that makes me reach for the remote is the one for "double glazing", I think its safestyle windows where this really loud bloke runs around shouting, "buy one and get the other absolutely free, I say buy one get the other one free". To me its the most irritating ad on the telly.
On the other hand one of my all time favourites are the old Tango ads, where the big, bald orange guy appears from nowhere, grabs the guy and plants a big smacker of a kiss on him, great stuff, you know when you've been Tango'd.

Id like to see the ad men shoot the "Dulux paint" ad in the tower block for real, now that would be an accomplishment.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I do like it when the new Qantas advert comes on, as the backing music is beautiful. I know its just a cover of Down Under by Men At Work, but its still a great piece.

What makes me laugh Punky is that whenever you see an ad for an airline, you invariably see happy people drinking champagne, relaxing on flat-bed seats and dressed immaculately. Its a pity they don't move the camera further down the plane, out of first and business class, and into economy, there they could film what its like for the majority of people. Crammed in to a small seat, babies crying, plastic meals and the kids constantly saying, "are we nearly there yet dad", that's the vision of flying I'm more familiar with.

Glad you enjoyed it. I thought they'd copped out with the latest bunny ad, but no...
