Smirnoff - chase through the glass /Smarienberg (1996) :60 (UK)

Michel Gondry's Smirnoff commercial with the techno track. Lady in green and her escort are chased through parallel worlds seen through the bottle. Very nicely edited indeed.

 

Lynx - Jelousy - (1996) 0:60 (UK)

Lynx - Jelousy - (1996) 0:60 (UK)

This is where the Lynx story started..... With girls hitting on the girlfriend who made the mistake of borrowing her boyfriends Lynx.

And yes, eagle eyed adgrunt, the principal talent is the same girl who flirted with a gay man in the Solo advert. Proof you can be typecast in advertising, this girls speciality is awkward flirt situations. ;)

Peperami - Shopping / I won't share a bag!

Peperami - Shopping / I won't share a bag!

BT - Marketing Director - (1995) :30 (UK)

BT - Marketing Director - (1995) :30 (UK)

"We want your business to grow" Prove it! snarks the man in the suit and then British Telecom launches into their spiel, while we watch saturated offices ladies against a black and white backdrop. This is incredibly dated.

 

BT Business - Save you Money - (1995) :30 (UK)

BT Business - Save you Money - (1995) :30 (UK)

I lived in London when this aired! British Telecom Business wants you to save money, and the business man just snarks: "prove it". Well they're cutting costs for a new line, excluding ISDN. Oh goodness, ISDN was an expensive luxury then.

Pirelli - Power Race - (1995) 0:60 (UK)

"Power is nothing without control". The poster ads that went with this had Carl Lewis posing in stiletto styled high heeled patent leather red pumps.. Ouch.

 

Levi's - Condom - (1995) 0:60 (UK)

Levi's - Condom - (1995) 0:60 (UK)

This is why there's a tiny front pocket on your Levi's - technically for pocket watches but misused ever since.

For search purposes - Levi - Levis - Levi's.

 

Apple Tango - Home with the flu / Dressing in scuba gear - (1995) :30 (UK)

Apple Tango - Home with the flu / Dressing in scuba gear - (1995) :30 (UK)

Man fakes the flu so that he can dress up in tin-foil shoes and mystery scuba gear and bright green tango underpants, while licking the TV set. Wife comes home unexpectedly and man shrieks "run away run away!" as he tries to hide behind the couch.

 

British Airways - Bringing people together / Face - (1994) :30 (UK)

British Airways - Bringing people together / Face - (1994) :30 (UK)

To show off their new uniforms, and to add a little world cup glamour to their brand, BA re-ran a shorter edit of the famous 1989 Face /Bringing people together ad.
