  • Toshiba ad

    Does anyone else remember the 'TOSHIBA' advert?
    I believe it went like this:

    "Hello Tosh look at the state of your telly,
    You've got a picture like a wobbly jelly,
    Apart from losing half the screen,
    The whole thing bends know what I mean.

    Well your old set, well bless my soul
    Reflects the light like a goldfish bowl
    Seems the designers made a boob
    So try TOSHIBAS flatter squarer tube.

    F S T where've you been
    We've straightened the corners and flattened the screen
    Fo the best colour picture, meet the leader
    Say hello Tosh to the new TOSHIBA."

    I don't really remember the ad, just the words. It was done with a cockney accent. A bit like Kevin Wicks(Eastenders)
    If you can remember it, do you have any idea what year it was on and how long it ran for. Thanks

              I remember the ad. I have a few of the ads on old VHS Tapes from 1986.

                  Looking at the URL, I thought that the advert being referred to was actually from 1977!

                  Didn't that "Ello Tosh" advert make it onto the 100 Greatest TV Ads on Channel 4?

                  I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
                  There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
                  I'm having so much fun
                  My lucky number's one
                  Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

                    It was a bit before my time but I encountered it on old video tapes along with a few other Toshiba adverts.

                    Here's a compilation of them

                      The last advert here is by the great Vivian Stanshall!

                        That's the one I can recall. That year I purchased a red Toshiba radio cassette player. It even had two cassette players...oooh

                          Another ad in the early 1990s was based on the "She's The Girl" song made famous by Gracie Fields, showing the range of Toshiba products.
