I get a bit fed up of people writing to tell me that my blogs and web sites doesn’t feature on the front page of Google, and that no-one will find me as a result. Well I’ve got news for these unwelcome intruders. Continue reading

when tv adverts were fun – good sport your missus – another from Castlemaine XXXX
With their Ute teetering an the brink of disaster, could this pair have misunderstood the lady?
Watch it here and make up your own minds. Castlemaine XXXX at its finest perhaps.
when TV adverts were fun – Carling Black Label parody the Levi’s Launderette ad
The Levi’s launderette ad, where the handsome young man comes in and strips down to his boxers, was a memorable ad in its own right(see below), making a star of Nick Kamen and also bringing a new audience to the music of Marvin Gaye.
Then The Oblivion Boys had another go at it on behalf on Carling Black Label. Enjoy it here.
As a bonus, check out the original Levi’s 501 ad.
when TV adverts were fun – Carling Black Label on snooker
Another older clip and back with Carling Black Label. Here we have snooker world champions John Spencer and Terry Griffiths with top referee of the time Len Ganley and with the voice of the late “whispering” Ted Lowe. Spencer’s throw away “you ask him” at the end is a classic.
Anyway, enjoy the advert here.
when TV adverts were fun – the Smash aliens
Going back a bit further than I have so far in this series, here is another classic piece of lateral thinking in the shape of the “Smash them all to bits” advert for Smash mashed potato featuring their wonderful metalic aliens.
when TV adverts were fun – an opinion, and a bonus advert
I hope that folks are enjoying my little weekly series providing a link tosome of the TV commercials that I think were great examples.
Whilst the implication is that they are not that good these days, I do enjoy some of the current crop. The long running Walkers Crisps series are usually pretty good, as are most of the Cleaner Close mini soaps (my favourite being the launderette one).
Many of the French car company adverts have style, but I do like to see some intelligence and wit, and a big favourite at the moment is the Cats with Thumbs one from Cravendale. Anyone who is owned by a cat will understand this one.
Anyway, I hope that there will long continue a tradition of decent advertising, especially as we have to put up with so much of it these days.
when TV adverts were fun – the Water in Majorca courtesy of Heinekin
With apologies to Pygmalion and My Fair Lady, Heinekin took a shot at how their beverage might just help this young Sloane Ranger (played by Sylvestra Le Touzel) with her steet cred. Bryan Pringle also stars as her tutor. Enjoy:
Education vs. Experience – The Trump Blog
You’ll find this topic here and there amongst my blogs here and on Monday Musings (ThatConsultantBloke). Given that many graduates I meet these days don’t actually have a great education then I tend to favour experience, but the Trumpster has a valid point here, and you don’t build a business empire like his unless you’re right more often that you’re wrong.
