    Nothing complicated or anything that would require us to think hard on this cloudy Monday :D .What's your favourite television/internet ad?

    Mine would have to be the Impossible is Nothing ad by Adidas where they have Nadia Comaneci and Nastia Liukin on the parallel (uneven?) bars. There's something about watching absolute unattainable perfection that I just love.

    what's yours?

    I think one of my favourites is the John West advert where the guy attacks the bear. Quality :D

    The honda advert with all the bits forming a chain has to be one of my all time favourites or the guinness advert with the waves

    Even though it was Arsenal based, there was a really good Nike advert a while back. It was basically through the eyes of a player coming up through the ranks, training, getting on as a sub, getting kippered by Rooney and then eventually scoring the winning goal or something.

    Some of the football game, beer or car adverts can be quite arty and look like they've had quite a bit of money poured into them.

    However, this is why I love e.g. iPlayer or watching a dvd which are both advert free. Bar the football, I don't watch normal tv anymore which along with an ad blocker means I'm very advert free.
