    Growing up in the '80s, I would have to say that my favourites were probably the Electricity ads - a lot of them had a really memorable tune and the words "we have the power to help you". Well, it must've worked as an ad, as I can still remember it!

    The advert that makes me laugh is the Aldi one with the sexy man and the bottles of champagne. Worth a giggle.

    Merry Xmas, cully. Before you ask, I've discovered the identity of the girl in that Vitabiotics ad:



    Vitabiotics Wellman and Wellwoman TV Ad

    She's actress, model and TV presenter Marie-Françoise Wolff. The young man is Daniel Garcia.


    Another mystery was the tune that begins "All I Want for Christmas is you". She sounded like the
    lead singer of The Cardigans. Of course, it helped when I eventually made a note of the product:

    What is the song used on the canon christmas advert? - Yahoo Answers

    So the lyrics are actually "Christmas this year". The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' lead vocalist is Karen O:



    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - All I Want For Christmas (2008)


    At least I knew this track. Only through my hobby of collecting US-only hits (I've never heard it
    on the radio). You hear a snippet in the David Tennant Netflix Virgin Media Superhero Movie Ad:



    Gary Wright - Dream Weaver

    US #2, 1976

    That's the first time I've seen him. I have this song on the brilliant Have a Nice Decade - The 70s Pop Culture Box compilation.

    Spotted this ad on TV last night and was surprised to find that the ad was used after last Christmas too. Never mind, it's great to watch the Dog!

    Does anyone the name of the blonde passenger in this advert? Is there a website for identifying actors/actresses in adverts?

    my annoying advert at the moment is the woman who is always going on about the neighbours going on a warners holiday... the same woman who couldn't wait to get away from her husband in another holiday advert!

    There's a strange ad that I've seen a few times now but I still can't remember the product name

    A man is stuck in a traffic jam.
    He shakes some tablets out of a bottle and gulps them down.
    His average car turns into a high performance rally car and the engine revs up. But he's still stuck in the traffic jam so whatever the product was, it didn't really do much good

    The oddest advert at the moment is when a young, supposedly very good looking young man arrives at the front door and announces that they are checking boilers in the street and could he check the boiler of the young woman who answers the door. And she agrees that he can come in obviously struck by the fact that he is good looking. After checking the boiler he asks to use the bathroom and this is the point of the advert, she has put some cleanser down the toilet so is comfortable that he can use the facilities. There is absolutely no way that I would allow a man in the house without any proper identification or notification. This is a dangerous advertisement.

    Ah, but this is ad-land, not real life. It's a place where the Mum stays at home and teaches her daughter how to do the washing up

    I don't jest in that ad-land is nothing like real life and should never be confused with it.
    But I do laugh at the stereotypes that they have populating ad-land

    I totally agree that ad-land is a world all of its own, but I feel there are vulnerable people who actually believe things they see on television and who may allow someone in because they sound authentic (and are goodlooking). For instance, my very elderly father allowed a man in who bought his grandfather clock for £100 and it was worth an awful lot more than that.

    A shame, but why wasn't he influenced by all the ads which tell people not to let people in without checking their identity?
