    Seen this air a couple of times now , probably has been played for a while but I don't watch much TV.

    This is the ad that apes the Virgin holidays ad where a returning customer is given the rockstar treatment. Makes me smile every time.

    Is that the one with the family and ends with them standing at the pool and dad punching the air?

    I just want that to be me, would kill for a holiday right now.

    However my favourite adverts on TV... by A mile... are the money supermarket adverts. The one with the dad at the casino with his family walking round like he owns the place and the one with the dad going into space... They genuinely make me laugh and smile when they come on. In fact typing this with a smile on my face thinking about it....

    Actually the Comparethemeerkat advert when he wakes the guy up and tells him you get cuddly toys with each purchase from them and the guy finishes by saying "5th meerkat toy!" and the lead meerkat says "yes very good dave 5th meerkat toy!"... So condescending and sarcastic... Again makes me smile!

    Yes that's the one. I'm not sure if I would have found it as funny had I not seen the Virgin ad to begin with. It's as if they are saying our holidays are just as good while at the same time dissing virgin.

    I like the meerkat ads too.

    I will have to check out the money supermarket ones.

    i like that Thomas Cook holiday one where the guy sabotages the wheel of the coach, makes me smile every time I watch it!

    It's a great ad, filmed at the holiday village Tenerife which is a great hotel too.
