Adverts D-G


Daily Star - 1993

A 1993 ad for Daily Star, advertising it as a paper for those who like to think for themselves. Thanks again to Iam Burn for this.

Daz - 1995

Ah the cheesy days of the past, its the famous Daz Doorstep Challenge.

Diamond White - 1991

Thanks to Iam for this 1990 ad in which things are not quite what they seem...

Diet Coke - 1992

Dont know if you'll remember this or not, but it has a jolly tune, so that makes it okay! Clever editing together of footage creates a place full of the famous from throughout the ages.

Domestos - 1987

Courtesy of Iam, a late 80s Domestos ad set to the song 'Big Bad John'. The sheriff, in the form of a bottle of Domestos, patrols the toilet protecting people from all known germs. Apologies for the sound quality on this clip.

Drifter - 1992

Talking in trendy speak in this ad, complete with normal english subtitles underneath. Courtesy of Iam Burn.

Dulux - 1991

Painting a wall to be proud of... whilst that Dog keeps watch!

Dulux - 1992

An advert for Dulux in 1992, with that famous dog again!

Dulux - 2001

A much more recent, and certainly more hilarious advert for Dulux from 2001, with some plasterceine figures. (And yes the dog is still around, albeit no doubt a different actor!)

Felix - 1998

The adverts for Felix catfood, animated in Black and white, have been used to advertise the brand for a very long time now, albeit updated and tweaked in style over the years. This shows a variant from 1998.

Ford - 1992

Could you have afforded a ford in 1992?

Ford - 2001

... and now for Ford in 2001!

Flora - 1998

Richard Wilson (star of One Foot in The Grave) remembers a Golden Childhood as he eats his Flora Buttery.

Fosters - 1984

Fosters - Xmas 1987

Mr Hogan at a Christmas party for this Fosters ad. With thanks to Iam again.

Fosters - 1997

One of several 'Jickle it you wrigglers' ads from the late 90s. The subject this time; rage! Clip courtesy of Iam Burn.

Frosties - 1995

A single woman tells of her obsession with Kellogg's Frosties.

Fruit 'n' Fibre - 1986

A Fruit 'n' Fibre advert from 1986, featuring surreal surroundings. Clip thanks to Iam again.

Fruit 'n' Fibre - 1990

Continuing the surreal idea of the last ad in a moment he'd probably like to forget, a young Ross Kemp stars in this jolly advert for Fruit and Fibre in 1990, based around a golfcourse on the med. Courtesy of Matt Richings.

Fruit Pastilles - 1991

An animated advert for Fruit Pastilles from 1991 and.... mmm... you just can't help chewing. Then for some unexplained reason typing that you're chewing out loud.

Golden Crackles - 1991

Two adverts here for Kellogg's cereals in 1991, that have since been dropped from the market in the UK. Both of them with the word 'Golden' in the name. This first one is for Golden Crackles...

Golden Oatmeal Crisp - 1991

...and this one is for another defunct cereal, known as Golden Oatmeal Crisp!

Guinness - 1993

3 ads for Guinness now, all courtesy of Iam Burn. This one, starring Rutger Hauer, is a strange advert, the point of which is lost on my little mind!

Guinness - 1997

This 1997 Guinness ad was one of a series quoting silly statistics, concluding with Vic Reeves stating that '88.2% of statistics are made up on the spot'.

Guinness - 2004

A 2004 ad with some people lost in the dark, with only moths to guide them towards the light. Courtesy of Iam.

Guinness Bitter - 1995

Not quite Guinness... it's Guinness Draught Bitter this time. You have to endure the rough, to appreciate the smooth.
