Best tv adverts


in a vague effort to say somethign that isn't about the war and also as i just found one of my main entries on line, what are the best adverts ever? Best one in england for many years i think was the John West advert:

http://www.uktvadverts.com/Media/video/jwest1.rm

who'd have thought that tinned fish could be so funny... would be nice if the ad's are downloadable / streamable. found that site as i was looking for a copy of one of the 80's flake ad's (UK only of course...) as mcleodnine eats girly chocolate and he needed proof, still not found it though...

It's got to be the "Accrington Stanley? Who are they?!" milk advert.

There was one of those Top100 programmes about adverts. I think either the Guinness surfing or Smash aliens won.
