We know how rubbish Halfax Ads are. The lastest kids cartoon one and the Wizard of Oz one are almost in the Shake’n’VAc awful class. However Halifax Ireland produced at least two classic adverts, which I will share below.
First is the “Top Cat” advert, which is borderline pathetic. This series is even worse that their previous “Howard” series, athough Howard himself was one.
Next is the Irish “Rockit” Dance Off featuring Bubba Sparxxx “Ms New Booty” and finishing with Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit”, this one shows how good they could be.
Finally you get the absolute class “Ballroom Blitz” gang fight featuring The Sweet’s classic. Unfortunately I’m unaware of this series continuing.
Apologies for the video quality of the Halifax Ireland ones but they still beat the hell out of Halifax England ones.
I’m still looking into integrating the back catalog o fads and haven’t really seen much that has caught my eye apart from the Premier Inn “Pedal Squad” which features The Hives “Hate To Say I Told You So” . Their current ad series is actually remarkably good.
I saw this on The Last Leg Paralympic Special And was moved by it, absolutely beautiful and uplifting. Who would theing you could say that about a car advert, but watch it , enjoy , maybe shed a tear and watch the others. Concentrate on people’s Abilities not their disabilities.
The new OVO advert features Slayer’s Raining Blood and is a rather good promotion for renewable energy. I’ve been with them for five years and if you want to give them a try you can sign up here.
DFS have been using “A Swingin’ Safari” by Bert Kaempfert in many of their adverts , here’s one from Summer 2017.
People have come here looking for Henry Mancini’s “Baby Elephant Walk” one of my mum’s favourite pieces with has been used by Sky (Penguins) and Alliance and Leicester but I don’t have a copy of the adverts.

In was a Guinness advert that made me start the original site, that and teaching myself .Net but I cannot find that ad that was soundtracked by Prince Buster’s excellent “Burke’s Law“, when I do I will share it with you.
