I’m still looking into integrating the back catalog o fads and haven’t really seen much that has caught my eye apart from the Premier Inn “Pedal Squad” which features The Hives “Hate To Say I Told You So” . Their current ad series is actually remarkably good.
I saw this on The Last Leg Paralympic Special And was moved by it, absolutely beautiful and uplifting. Who would theing you could say that about a car advert, but watch it , enjoy , maybe shed a tear and watch the others. Concentrate on people’s Abilities not their disabilities.
The new OVO advert features Slayer’s Raining Blood and is a rather good promotion for renewable energy. I’ve been with them for five years and if you want to give them a try you can sign up here.
DFS have been using “A Swingin’ Safari” by Bert Kaempfert in many of their adverts , here’s one from Summer 2017.
People have come here looking for Henry Mancini’s “Baby Elephant Walk” one of my mum’s favourite pieces with has been used by Sky (Penguins) and Alliance and Leicester but I don’t have a copy of the adverts.

In was a Guinness advert that made me start the original site, that and teaching myself .Net but I cannot find that ad that was soundtracked by Prince Buster’s excellent “Burke’s Law“, when I do I will share it with you.
Janes Corden manages another annoying Confused.Com advert with music completely unrelated to his tediousness but Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back In Town” from their breakthrough album “Jailbreak” still sounds brilliant.
And we have to include the wonderful Richard Ayoade HSBC advert detailing the benefit of being part of something bigger and demonstrating the stupidity of Brexit soundtracked by Elgar’s “Nimrod” from the “Enigma Variations”
I have to include this advert the Guinness Surfer Horses advert from 1999 which is probably the greatest TV advert ever soundtracked by Leftfield’s“Phat Planet”. The black and white imagery and Neptune’s See Horses are an image that no one will forget.
I’m going to manually build theis blog with classics for the past as well as current adverts, but I a still learning WordPress so it may be a slow process.
Here’s the Phil Collins Gorilla advertisisng Cadbury’s Dairy Milk from 2007. I know Phil Collins is not everyone’s cup of tea but he is a great drummer and “In The Air Tonight” is a minimalist masterpiece.
