Advertising executives are well-aware of the need for cute, quirky, funny or even outrageous advertisements to sell products. Although I rarely watch television, whenever I do I manage to get a laugh from the ads that pop up every few minutes.

What is the funniest television advertisement you've ever seen? Did it make you want to buy the product it was promoting, or did you just find it amusing?

"Out of the way sheep shaggers!!!" This ad just cracked me up. And yes I own a hilux (owned it before I saw that ad). I think it totally sums up what it is like to drive an ute :) There is a link here on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eqKeuk19KU
Thank you for posting the link. I had never seen that ad. Loved it!!

I like the "meerkat" insurance ads. They are funny usually.
Feel they're starting to get very annoying. The 'russian'/'Hungarian' accent can't be understood easily, therefore whole point is lost!

Many years ago I saw an advert for a chocolate bar (I can't remember which one). This commuter was at the train station at and was buying the bar a convenient store on the platform. The retailer then said, 'this comes with it,' and picked up a hamster buy the tail. The hamster then started hula hooping. The man declined the gift, and the advert ended saying something like 'without the need for all the fussy stuff'.

All the inappropriate ads with innuendo and pushing the boundaries are pretty good.

The beer ads from a few years ago are excellent. Especially the Tooheys Extra Dry with the tongue.
Hi Matteo......
I loved the tongue going to collect a bottle of beer! It was just so clever, anthropomorphizing the tongue. I laughed every time I saw it!

Didn't like the follow up with the mouth, though, it was gross!

I like the Katut and Rhonda one.....it is now finished but that was a series of ads that I could watch over and over, and now i have almost changed over completely to non-commercial channels as they are on time, and not as many ads which drive me crazy.

The one with the 'bugger' dog in it. Cracked me up every time I saw it!
Warning . . . hysterically gross :-)

I loved the one with the Bank Manager a few years ago.
