A few things about adverts

Ok Barry Cillit, of Cillit Bang (bang! and the dirt is gone), why are you shouting at me? and why have you recruited all those ladies to speak in louder than normal voices at me? You had me convinced at the penny test!

Like the old advert for confused.com… he shouted at me too, and I didn’t like that. Now their advert is much more subdued… though I still don’t like it.

And is Coke zero different from diet coke? Or is it the new name for diet Coke?

Worthers Original ads just aren’t the same without a Grand-dad.

Is that aquafresh advert an old one that they used to show about 10 years ago? I’m sure I remember it from way back…

I’d like to see all the old Guinness adverts, in one long run… they were good, but they didn’t make me drink the stuff. You know with the guy dancing, and everyone in school would be singing the music and dancing…

ahhh you can’t go wrong with a bit of dancing in adverts.

  1. I think the video for the aquafresh advert is an old one but the music is different, but I could be wrong about that.

  2. I want to know whether the Cillit Bang adverts are dubbed deliberately badly in order to boost its cult credentials.

    Coke Zero is shamefully marketed (by Coca–Cola themselves) as 'Bloke Coke' aimed at the type of idiot that won't drink Diet Coke in case he looks gay.

    The Guardian feature a good write–up about it.

    Problem with Coke Zero is it tastes a lot like water and a lot unlike Coke :–/

  5. I’m sure the Cillit bang is dubbed badly on purpose – it surely can’t be intended as genuine!

    Cillit Bang have been shrewd – by piling on the cheese, they know that while people will be annoyed, they won’t forget it (there’s no way I’d otherwise know what Cillit Bang is, that’s for sure)

    Sheila’s Wheels is surely doing the same.
