Our favourite adverts!

Becky Street  •  2 min read

It’s fair to say that adverts are a bit like Marmite — you either love them or you hate them. 
 
Don’t get me wrong, it is intensely annoying when you’re watching the most exciting episode of Game of Thrones ever only to be interrupted by a barrage of the same adverts you saw just 20 minutes ago but, when it comes to a good ‘un, generally speaking we’re only too pleased to watch again. Take the annual John Lewis Christmas ad, for example. Or that ‘weird one with the gorilla’. We can’t get enough of them.
 
Advertising is an incredibly powerful marketing tool when used correctly. Of course, there are always going to be a few stinkers that make you reach for the remote, but this article is all about celebrating the corkers — and here are some of our all-time faves! 
 
We apologise in advance for any songs, slogans or phrases that are stuck in your head for the rest of the day!
