British Commercials

You know, we have to admit that the British make the best commercials in the world..

Car insurance is, of course, advertised by a meerkat...called Aleksander...




and

any ideas on how to advertise mobile telephones...? Let's Dance..




By the way - Aleksander Orlov, the Russian meerkat, is now a national hero in the UK, with his own Facebook, his own YooToob and plans for a blog. Oh, and 'comparethemeerkat.com' is a real website - go visit
here!

Some good ones, some bad ones out there at the moment. The Meerkats one is good for its pure, simple, innocent charm :-)

Peugeot need to improve a bit. I've watched their one with the lady-in-black-dress and Ben Affleck clone on fast forward a few times and got curious. Until I heard the dialogue ... Ouchies ! Think I'll hit the mute switch next time and just look at lady-in-black-dress.

Netchick sent me this time :-)

Funny commercials. I've always heard the Brits are good at this.

We don't watch them much & usually skip over.

Annoyingly, when I visited Comparethemeerkat.com the other week to compare meerkats, I kept getting a pop-up message asking me if I was serious about meerkats or if I wanted car insurance. Tsk!

have you seen the YouTube about how they made the T-mobile one? Fantastic!

I'm not so keen on the meerkats, personally, but appreciate its charm!
