    The new kia advert during the c4 cricket with the 4wd and weird animated army. Must be my inner child but for some reason makes me laugh.

    The Darren Lockyer + Carroll one, where they're doing Shakespeare behind closed doors.
    And the recent one for Scope. That's a really really awesome (and touching) ad.

    I love the Vodafone adverts in the UK. So funny.. The "Don't put up with a short conversation ones"

    Dad, there's a problem at customs
    Oh dear.

    It's definitely a "you have to have seen it" thing, because its all in the timing..


    Also the new Saab 900 advert, where the guy is going on about Saab who design aircraft being perfectly placed to keep your car on the road, with the airstream going over the saab as it drives along, simply because the film was made and the car is actually driving through Johannesburg! Took me ages to work it out as they have removed all the ad banners and its a really quick advert.. ..

    I love the hutch ads with the dog

    Also an ad where the girls go wild sitting in a classroom because a guy is wearing a cool titan fasttrack watch is a recent favourite. I was smiling widely when I first saw that ad. The girls kept going yessssssss banging the desk one after the other. Quite surprised that such an ad could come up in India

    I guess I should probably explain the Scope one...

    This girl is watching this guy with a disability at the train station, who's making loud long groans as though he's in pain, or something's wrong, in his wheelchair - with the design of making it seem as though he's a bit of a nutjob. As the camera zooms in, you can see the headphones in his ears, and the music in the background gets louder - and then you recognise "Paranoid Android" playing, and it comes up with the caption "Don't worry - he's just another Radiohead fan", as you can now tell that he was just singing along to it.

    Then it goes "See the person, not the disability". I reckon it's great.

    There was a Sky Sports ad for Superleague a couple of years back which I liked, where a bloke who'd just missed a bus was running after it and Paul Sculthorpe came flying out of nowhere and tackled him in the middle of the road.

    First impressions are important with advertisements, and sometimes you have to really have your wits about you when trying to work out what is actually being advertised, so simplicity is definitely a plus.

    Twenty-odd years ago, there was one which simply had a snooker table, cue, cue arm, white ball, black ball. The visuals were obvious, the cue ball sent the black the length of the table before it crept agonisingly into the corner pocket. The voice-over was simply "There is a lot of satisfaction....... in slowly..... potting..... the black" - cut to player placing empty Guinness glass on table.

    Perfect.

    i like that australia tourist advert with richie benaud, he goes round various sites like the sydney harbour bridge, takes a picture on his camera and says....."great shot that" and it repeats, great ad imo.
