A bloke called Mo Drake, who died in August aged 93, created the slogan 'Beanz Meanz Heinz' over a couple of pints in the Victoria pub in Mornington Crescent. That was in 1967 and his slogan was voted the best of all time.

It was good for sure, but I always liked 'Mash Means Smash' and the little aliens that went with it.

What slogan gets your vote?

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Wasn't it ..."for mash get Smash"?

 


A stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell give some indication of expected traffic numbers

It was indeed, I've still got my mechanical wind-up Smashman

The ad I liked was the PG Tips with the chimps.

The ad I really hate atm is the Post Office Pensions with that God awful screeching Welsh sprog, I switch off TV.

 


Is now OFFICIALLY retired.

One of my favourites was the Fiat Strada ad of 40 years ago "Handbuilt by Robots" to the stirring music from the Barber of Seville

Coke and Macdonalds adds often good, although I don't even use them.

Guinness for strength, A Mars a Day helps you work rest and play, god knows what Marathons did, Bet you can't put a Fruit Pastille in your mouth without chewing it, I feel like Chicken Tonight. I pay no attention to adverts obviously.

The Bond DHL advert is good currently, but if you see it more than three times in a day, you've had enough.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Slight side step.

According to the latest studies, it’s the sonic branding that is now a brands most distinctive asset. 8.5 times more likely to bring a brand to mind vs any visual branding (incidentally a slogan was 1.19).

Statistically the most effective (recall and propensity) in the UK is Just Eat. Its hard to say that without singing the jingle.

For those of us of a certain vintage... the Cadburys Flake adverts of the early 70's

2 of my current favourites are

1) The KFC ‘’Biiiig DEAL’’ where she tries to sound as hard, street and cool, or so she believes, as possible.

2) The EE advert, well I think it’s just a radio ad.

‘’Her signal, no.’’

‘’No likes, no hashtags, no hearts from her followers.’’

‘’No not her followers’’ in an alarmed and shocked tone. This does make me chuckle. ‘’No not her followers’’ lol

The ad I really hate atm is the Post Office Pensions with that God awful screeching Welsh sprog, I switch off TV.

The one that has that effect on me is two police cops talking to each other in baby voices. I don't even know what it's advertising.

I remember one from the 1950s. Picture of a snowman, with snow falling, singing: "I'm the Veno's snowman, Call me pop,
You'll find me in the chemist shop,
Take Veno's and the cough soon goes,
Stop that cough with (sound of a pop) Veno's.

That reminds me of a lovely story about the inimitable Dennis Thatcher. He was being offered tea and was asked whether he'd like Ceylon, Assam, Darjeeling, etc. "No, no," he said - "that stuff the monkies advertise will do fine."
