Just caught the ads on the Tour on ITV4 and they're showing that stupid advert where they micky-take Ghostbusters. What the hell is all that about..? :?

Then theres that other ad, I forget who for even, just that its this fella being chased by what looks like his middle aged male lover and leaps over two other cars. And they seem to be racing around normal streets. It does have an element of fantasy I'll give it that.

I suppose the car firms have had their day with the ads where drivers glide down empty, silent roads. Best car ad - the one where they fold a box into a car. Again though, does anyone remember what these cars are, because I certainly dont. :lol:

    Box car = Audi, the 118 ghost busters advert is really catchy I think, much better than the 247 directory heaven advert, so cheesy

    I could have sworn the ghostbusters mickey take was a car ad. :shock: I stand corrected :)
  • There is a ghostbusters car ad - for a Citroen, and it is crap! Saw an ad for 2 nissan 4x4s at the cinema where they have a dance off like west side story, that was really sh1t.

    On the up side though, I noticed today they've started re-running the Milky Way ad where the red car and the blue car had a race (must be 20years old) Best ad though is the ADIOS one featuring the disco classic disco inferno, Oh, and a very tasty young lady gyrating a more than sexy bottom. 8)

    118 247 give them a call its directory heaven. My Sisters kids sing it all the time just to make you start singing it because you get angry with yourself when you do :lol: .

    I did like a couple of the Astra Corsa "C'mons" ads. However that was due to the cute girl riding her bike up the hill :wink:

    i won;t use 118 118 becasue i don't understand what the point of it all is.

    If you want a number - look it up on the internet - and it's free.

    No one has seen that seat advert then.

    oo err its rather weird with the salesmen making weird noises to describe the car. Confused me the first time I saw it but then realised there where sub-titles for people who don't understand what he is saying.

    The Seat one is naff in a curious way. He's a funny actor though, always has been since Spaced. :)
