I like the Aldi adverts, don't know who writes them but they all make me chuckle.
Love the one with the 2 little boys and the Rabbit/wabbit. They are so cheeky and loveable. :-) :-)

The new McDonalds one for child meal boxes (not that we like McDs)

The children playing with empty cardboard boxes and using their imagination ( OK, they might have had encouragement) brings back so many family memories

:-D

I love those Aldi ones, too - the little lad covered in mud, and the old dear who likes waiters make me laugh. Anything with humour brightens up the schedules.

aha and it works because you have all remembered the advert and what it was for - that is how advertising works

Have to agree about the Aldi adverts, make me smile whenever I see them.

Probably my favourite advert ever, for the sheer beauty of it, was L'Odyssée de Cartier, only shown for a very short time a couple years ago:

(It's a long advert, watch in full screen if you can)

Would love to see an Aldi advert for Cartier type stuff!

I love the Martians, the meerkats and the swinging monks. Didn't know what they were advertising until I read this.

That's the strange thing about these interesting adverts, you remember them, but not the product they are advertising!

I like the diet coke ads, particularly the current one <3 Here's the director's cut

Past ads which stick in my mind are the Boddington's ads. Here's a sample

We might remember the adverts, but we aren't necessarily going to rush out and purchase the item! Mind you, we are 'old' and cynical ;-)
