What are your favourite ads of all time?


What are your favourite advertisements ever made — either in tv, radio, print or outdoor?

intro What are your favourite ads of all time?Oh thanks – ask a really hard question. There are so many terrific ads ranking them seems wildly unfair. So in no particular order: most of the Got Milk campaign, VW ‘Funeral” from 196?, the British VW Polo/ Golf ‘Surprisingly low prices’ campaign, almost everything ever done for the Economist, the Volvo “If the welding isn’t strong enough, the car will fall on the writer” ad, Timberland long copy stuff, lots of Nike – big surprise – especially TAG, Levis “The Swimmer”, Apple ’1984′, Time magazine campaign, a bunch of Fox Sports stuff, Bud Light, the Special K ad with the guys in the bar “I have my mother’s thighs”- not sure what it’s called….shall I go on?

If I had a gun to my head and actually had to choose just one, it would be the Guardian spot that shows the scene from three points of view. It was one of the first great commercials I ever saw and the one that taught me the most about the power of 30 seconds.

I like work that makes me feel something – happy, sad, angry – it’s all good.
