Back in the 70s, there were a series of commerical for Benson & hedges cigarettes that featured Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan. I remember then being manic and hayhem, with hysterics along the way. I have not seen them since then and still wish to today.

In Australia ...back in the 80's there was a Coca Cola commercial that introduced The Body (Elle MacPherson) to us...  :)  Elle was walking slowly toward the camera in a bikini!  ::)

♦ The 90s commercials for Kellogg's Mini-Wheats, where Mr. Mini-Wheat would sit in a psychiatrists office and talk about his frosted side. 

♦ Those Magnavox ads from the 90s where John Cleese would talk to himself in the TVs

♦ The Doritos commercial where Chevy Chase swooped in on a crane and stole that lady's bag of Doritos, leaving her to be crushed by a steamroller

♦ The Visa Check Card commercial with Leslie Nielsen where he's basically a walking disaster, and all his bodyguards are working hard so he doesn't get injured

♦ MacGyver for Master Card
