    Thanks for that, I heard it discussed on the radio the other day but hadn't actually seen it.

    regards

    If there is some kind of fuss about this advert that would warrant discussion on the radio, well search me what it is...

    the fact that its got people saying/thinking WTeff's that got to do with chocolate means it has worked, job done ..., they've still put chocolate in your head. And with milk chocolate, most people would think of Cadburys rather than Galaxy anyway.

    I find most advertising is unfunny, uninteresting, patronising :censored: anyway, not much better than what contestants achieve on The Apprentice, at least those overpaid pretentious dandies have done something 'interesting' for a change ;)

    there could be a random ad concept generator for this ...

    I would like to see a zebra singing Incommunicado by Marillion, as an advert for oven chips (could have said a fish, but that wouldn't have been random enough ;))

    And how often does a new advert make it onto You Tube with a day or two of release and when it hasn't been seen by most of the country? Cadbury's may know how to market, but perhaps no idea of "what" market! Looks like a good idea looking for a product.

    Brilliant krish = I would like to see a dolphin singing Joe Dolci's "Shudduppa your face", whilst advertising Cillit Bang - there would be an impromptu shot of some otters break-dancing just toward the end, and then a cutaway to the dolphins laughing with cigars perched precariously at the side of their mouths.











































    I should never have done acid in the late '80s/early '90s....sorry.:oops:

    :hiya: Hi krish After finding out you went to the same Iron Maiden concerts as I did I now find out you're a Marillion/Fish fan too. Let me guess did you go to the '85 MK bowl gig too?

    You'll be telling me you were into Floyd, Tull & Hawkwind next.
