Old TV adverts

I think this has been posted before but it's worth another run because we have lots more Noddlers now.I'm looking for your favourite old tv ads and what prompted this was my drive back to London yesterday.Smoke gets in your eyes by the Platters came on the radio and it reminded me like it does every time I hear it of the old advert for paraffin with the cartoon bloke with the bowler hat singing"Boom boom boom boom Esso Blue."

The song went "They asked me how I knew it was Esso Blue I of course replied with lower grades one buys smoke gets in your eyes."

"You'll Wonder Where The Yellow Went, When You Brush Your Teeth With Pepsodent" - I followed their instructions but sadly still ended up with plastic Knashers!!

'Come and talk to the listening bank' which I sang as it happens! Oh and.... 'Shake and Vac' which I didnt sing.

Also remember "De Esso sign mean 'appy motoring, De Esso sign mean 'appy motoring, De Esso sign mean 'appy motoring, Call at de Esso sign." To be found with loads of others at .... classictvads.co.uk/homepage.ht... Can't get into today's ads. Most of my TV watching is recorded on Sky plus these days so I tend to skip over the ads. Some of the old ones are great though. Wonderful non-PC days.
