    Default Biscuit ads

    I was just thinking about some of the biscuit ads from the past. My faves include The bloke with the guitar singing Blue riband blues. The United ads featuring Miles Offside and his family and also the one that went "my name is Stan and I'm a fan and I'm delighted to eat United". Then going back further, Cadbury Whistler advertised by the Kamikaze Coconuts and Angels trumpets advertised by the devil. They don't make em like they used to.

    I loved the United ads too branny! My favourite has to be the Trio adverts from the 80's. 'I want a Trio and I want one now!!!' I also remember the ads for Banjo's too.
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

    Wagon Wheels - Kinda big and kinda nice... (Ad begins at 3:49)
    Please don't tell anybody
    that we're the real Duran Duran!
    We're just happy pretending
    to be our own greatest fans...

    Does anyone remember the McVitie's Fruit'n'Spice(?) ad where a man's sitting watching 'The Wolfman' or something with his wife, the plate of biccies are beside them as he tries to resist eating too many of them he turns into a werewolf, his wife slaps his hand as he reaches for another...I liked that one.

    I loved the Banjo advert.
    Does this count as a biscuit?
    May be pushing it a bit!

    As with Jaffa Cakes, when the boundary from biscuitdom is crossed is sometimes difficult to determine...

    But in terms of musical adverts and jingles,
    "if you want a lot of chocolate on your biscuit join our Club"

    and "Drifter": "Give me the beat, boys, and free my soul..."
    "It's never too late to have a happy childhood."

    The moment I saw this thread I thought about the United ads and of course Susie the 'TRRRRIIIOOO' girl and her beatnik band. I'm off to P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin.
