Yes Mr. Davis!

By Daniel Pincott

I wrote a couple of weeks ago about my happiness that PPI adverts are finally done and dusted (although I am sure something else will take their place) and what other irritating adverts are out there that won't go away.

This got me thinking about the best and greatest adverts of all time and also the format they are delivered in.

Currently, I'm a sucker for Aviva's new radio advert and have "YES MR. DAVIS" in my head constantly! 

And I'm not the only one - everyone at some point has a jingle, song or a motto that rolls around in your head, whether you like it or not. 

So I was delighted to come across this article which offers a spread of what it believes could be the best and most recognisable adverts that have been produced. It covers a wide timeframe and wildly varied product portfolio but while there will definitely be some in there which you recognise (Bud's Whassup anyone?) - I think there are some big omissions as well.

Take a look - and let me know your favourite all time memorable advert!

Why are these campaigns some of the best ads of all time? Because of the impact they had on the growth of the brand, and because they manage to hit on some universal truth that allows us to remember these campaigns years after they first began. In fact, some of us might not have even been alive when these campaigns first aired.
