Does anyone remember seeing these in the cinema?

Yes I remember them.

The voice on the Odeon guy in the second video (about 5.00) used to really annoy me. The Dolby Digital ad to be on laserdiscs too.

I remember the Kia Ora ad, how curtains used to open at the cinema.

"I'll be your dog, I'll be your dog... woof woof..." :cool:

"Auntie Beryl . . . if you're drinking Bacardi".:)

Those damn Bicardi ad's were always way too loud.

My local cinema still had an area for the orchestra until quite recently :)

I hadn't seen that particular ad, but saw similar 'no smoking' warnings. I used to wonder how a cigarette burnt up so fast. :o

Celluloid Screams in Sheffield did a half hour just of adverts from the 80s at the end of last year (plus ads, etc). It was brilliant. Would love to sit through a movie's worth of them... and then go home and watch all the movies :)

I used to love all those 70s/80s things including the Pearl*and Dean advert...

That said - My fave was always "Hey Crusader... Have you any nuts?"

Remember most of those clips - some voiced by Michael Aspel.

Favourite ad was this - it looked so good on a really big screen, would love to see it in HD.

I also remember the 'Beware, Thieves are silent' snake promo, always used to hiss along to it, can't find it on youtube though. :(

Orangemaid 27-01-2013 13:10

Virgil Tracy 27-01-2013 15:06

RecordPlayer 27-01-2013 15:20

I remember some of them and the Jet Set. They were always sailing off somewhere drinking Martinis.:D

Don't they show Pearl and Dean anymore? I'm sure I saw their intro not so long ago.
