Murphy's get animation talents from Japan in this advert, following the release of Ghost in the Shell in the UK. The ad acts like a non-Asian anime advert should - six samurai rushing through a futuristic megalopolis to get to the pub on time, in a high-octane sequel to the Brothers Quay's spot from a year prior. Directed by Hiroyuki Kitakubo, though some sources claim it to be Mamoru Oshii, at Production I.G. for Nexus Productions. Art was provided by Hiroyuki Kitakubo and Kazuchika Kise.

One of Guinness' most famous and successful ads in history, in which three forms of life travel through millions and millions of years in search of perfect taste. This advert went on to please critics, boost sales and become an award winner across the globe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NoitulovE Directed by Daniel Kleinman at Kleinman Productions, with VFC by Framestore CFC. Soundtrack: Sammy Davis Jr. - The Rhythm of Life

Two of Jim Henson's earliest Muppets in most of the gloriously sadistic commercials that persuade you to drink Wilkins Coffee or die. Wilkins and Wontkins would also be used for a variety of other brands, including Red Diamond Coffee. Recovered from Garrett Gilchrist's suspended Henson Rarities channel.

The heartbreaking, award-winning tale of a lamp abandoned by its owner. Some of the criticism included similarities to ads by The Carphone Warehouse, and its win of the Cannes Lions Grand Prix over Honda's 'Cog', but above all that was critical praise and a place as the 8th most awarded commercial of 2003. Directed by Spike Jonze at Morton/Jankel/Zander. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamp_(advertisement)

A PIF that was released on television and in cinemas, scaring teenagers with a deformed person immune to the dangers of cigarettes. An ad so creepy it doesn't even need to use any type to get its message across - it's made pretty clear through visuals. Directed by Barry Myers, and winner of a Silver D&AD Award.

A Sky technician introduces the Parrs to super-powered wi-fi (which, them living in a world where technology is at a futuristic peak for the 60's, makes enough sense), and Dash just can't resist testing it around the whole house in just under a minute in a new Sky ad cross-promoting Brad Bird's near-stellar Incredibles 2, out in UK cinemas next week, and as good as it is (saw it a month early), none of the films or games have given Helen's elastic neck nearly as much credit as this. Animated at Pixar.

The last ever public advert for Hamlet Cigars, due to ads for smoking on TV and cinema screens not being a good idea anymore. Besides, "Happiness is a cigar called Hamlet" and a Chief Medical Officers' Warning do not mix very well. Rated 15.

I know this was already uploaded to YouTube, but since PIFMan092's been doing the same thing I thought I'd copy. In this ad, an odd-sounding boy named Dudley Sidebottom discovers the quirky, chocolatey world that lies beneath his local sweet shop. The voices were done by Neville John "Noddy" Holder of Slade, and the animation was done by John Kricfalusi (Ren & Stimpy, George Liquor, that Simpsons couch gag) and the good folks at Spümcø. Even he apparently forgot about this ad. http://web.archive.org/web/20010808092916/http://www.spumco.com/entertainment/cadbury/ I uploaded this because these mascots are very unique, but none of their other ads have been uploaded by anyone. I've search many ad breaks uploaded to YouTube, but none to be found. More people remember the Yowies. The ads I do remember were four ads starring Giant Buttons, an older counterpart to the Buttons character, and one where the gang were playing hide-and-seek (I think). These ads were done by other studios. I just think these characters need more attention.

Although the beginning stirred controversy due to the animation looking like squiggly-haired (or testicle-headed if you're a real perv) Cara was pulling the microphone out of her unmentionables instead of her pocket, this is a misleading but fun advert, and just the right way to honour the high amount of customers that visited the site, even if it wasn't really 18 million. I think this should've been the only one of its kind, though, as much later the breasts seemed to get bouncier, the pocket animation never changed its position, the singing became more annoying, the song choices less relevant and all the customers returned for no reason other than to insult humanity. Animated by Hornet and directed by Dan & Jason, featuring vocals by Louise Dearman of British Wicked fame.

A rather disappointing comeback for the original TC and friends, who consult/con Halifax to help upgrade his bin because it's been years since they gang shared interest in RBS. Still better than both the movies. Directed by Dom and Nic at Outsider.

A disturbingly odd cinema advert (that also made it to TV) for The Samaritans, about a woman named Saira who's supposedly talking about suicide from neglect, but all we can hear is a variety of distorted, creepy noises including low-pitched screams. Directed by cinematographer Michael Seresin at BFCS. Rated 15, although this is one of the ads from the time where the rating looked like an 18.
