    A few more:
    Pepsi
    Cresta
    Hofmeister
    Hamlet any are good but I like Gregor Fisher
    Kia Ora
    John Smiths with Peter Kay
    That's my favourite but all of Peter Kays John Smiths are here
    and all the Gordon Rollings' ones are here
    Tetley Tea Folk
    Carling Black Label best of the series
    Bistro

    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    In the 80s but the Heineken advert with the posh girl trying to say The water in Majorca don't taste like it ought to was memorable.

    An evening in September,
    Summer's main force is spent,
    A dog barking somewhere in Sussex,
    Can be heard...
    From a village In Kent

    An ancient elm remains unmoved
    As a swallow performs some tricks,
    And the man who bats at number 3
    Hits a gnat...
    For 6

    Such and evening should be celebrated,
    So, it's no ordinary bitter for me.

    Tonight let money be no object,
    I'll have a pint of JC

    The pub in the ad was The White Hart , and definately a Courage house in the seventies.

    The Birds Eye Beef Burgers series of ads were directed by a young Alan Parker. The Hovis ad was directed by some bloke called Ridley Scott. The little girl in the Birds Eye Peas ad was Patsy Kensit and the air hostess in the Cinzano ad was a young Marina Sirtis, later of Star Trek: TNG fame. The woman in the Heineken ad was Sylvestre Le Touzel.
    Long ago, some comedy troupe did a mickey-take of the Cointreau ad, mimicking it perfectly until the end when the Frenchman says to the woman: 'Fancy a shag?'.

    The 1970s (and early '80s) weren't all about memorable ads, there was also a campaign to scare the bejesus out of us with things like this and this!
