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.
Janes Corden manages another annoying Confused.Com advert with music completely unrelated to his tediousness but Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back In Town” from their breakthrough album “Jailbreak” still sounds brilliant.
And we have to include the wonderful Richard Ayoade HSBC advert detailing the benefit of being part of something bigger and demonstrating the stupidity of Brexit soundtracked by Elgar’s “Nimrod” from the “Enigma Variations”
I have to include this advert the Guinness Surfer Horses advert from 1999 which is probably the greatest TV advert ever soundtracked by Leftfield’s“Phat Planet”. The black and white imagery and Neptune’s See Horses are an image that no one will forget.
I’m going to manually build theis blog with classics for the past as well as current adverts, but I a still learning WordPress so it may be a slow process.
