    Default 80s TV adverts clips!

    Was browsing youtube today (for ZX Sprctrum stuff as it is its 25th birthday today) and found these great compilations of 80s TV adverts Here! <-- click link.

    There are plenty other ads linked from that page!

    brought back some memories that did!

    Hi,

    Had to check this out but disappointed,i was waiting to see the Umbongo ad it was a mixed fruit flavoured drink.
    DYR the one "Umbongo Umbongo a ticky ticky tongo way down deep in the middle of the congo" the words went something like that,we used to sing it at school and make up the other words we could'nt remember...........

    The advert and lyrics are actually on the Um Bongo site: http://www.umbongo.com/

    Direct link for the advert is http://www.umbongo.com/video/umbongo.mov
    Direct link for he song is http://www.umbongo.com/mp3/um_bongo_lo.mp3

    For those not wishing to click the links, the lyrics:

    Way down deep in the middle of the Congo, a hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango.

    The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo", Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.

    The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin. The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.

    So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!
