Oh yeah, that is a classic.

Made in New Zealand apparently... unlike the beer itself which is brewed here in Melbourne.

On a side note, apparently my brother is going to be (presumably an extra?) in a beer ad... so hopefully it's as good!

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

My favourites as a boy were the Smash instant mashed potato ads...

Some parodies from my teens....

Mel Smith & Griff Rhys Jones parodying the s3 ad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTEEKyTESiU" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

British parodies of tacky 1970's American Express ads

Deluxe home organ.

Batchelors' soup
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUfDGaTs8sE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

"There's a Man in Iran." Positive spin on Ayatollah Khomeini a year after the Iranian Revolution.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGBfYold ... re=related" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Another genuine ad – a most bizarre one for Mr. Kipling's Cakes. Withdrawn after complaints from Christians.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tus8s2mKGME" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Apostles' Creed (updated Anglican version). Not an ad. Just something else that Christians complained about.
