    Default "Red Car & Blue Car" Milky Way Ad back on TV!

    Hi guys,

    Don't know if anyone has seen this also but I was just watching ITV and during the ad break they showed the brilliant "Red Car & Blue Car". See YouTube - Milky Way - Anim - Red Car & Blue Car - 1989 - UK Advert if you cannot remember this.

    They really don't make TV like they used to...this one will always be a favourite.

    All the best,

    Matt

    I saved up those tokens for a gift voucher, but didn't spend it before it expired.

    Hi all, I'm new here!

    In the reissued Red Car/Blue Car ad, they've changed the lyrics, the original song reminding us eager consumers that it did not 'ruin your appetite' now tells us that it 'tastes just right'.

    I prefered the original.

    Can't they leave well enough alone?

    Makes me wonder why they 'dug up' this advert and started reusing it again. Don't get me wrong, it's great to see it back on our screens again, but it seems odd practice.

    Hoping they 'dig up' some other golden oldies soon . Anybody remember the Quosh alien?

    LOL Ive just dug deep into my 45s and dug out the single what a crazy tune. I think it reached just the top 50 though should have got higher

    Haha I saw this advert pop up on ITV the other night, it really took me back to when I was younger. I didn't realise they had changed the lyrics either, well spotted glam_racket and I agree, they should leave these things well alone!

    Only saw the very end of the ad...didn't realise they had changed the lyrics...the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" leaps to mind.

    Yeah I was surprised to see this advert a few days ago. The last time I saw it was way back in about 1989 or something.

    It does look new though for some reason, so I don't know if it's the exact same advert being re-shown or whether it's the same advert but re-made.
