7 Classic Irish Ads and earworms
posted on 25th May 2018 by Trish Brady
1: Shake n Vac
Let’s start with the worst… go on put the freshness back, a world class earworm, you’re welcome!
2: Harp larger
Ah Sally O’Brien (she was actually English!) but anyway home is where the Harp is.
Hmmmm, was buttering the spuds a euphemism?
4: Water Safety
Jesus Christ it’s a wonder any of us Irish kids made it through childhood, not to mention poor Grandad, just how drunk was he? Classic 1980’s.
Ahhh Guinness, this whole post could have been just one great Guinness Ad after another. Here’s one of my favourites, cause that dancing guy was just annoying!
6: Safe Cross Code
Right all together now: 1 Look for a safe place, 2 Don’t hurry stop and wait, 3 Look all around and listen. This has saved my life many times.
7: Bord na Mona
Let’s finish with a bit of class, And O she was the Sunday in every week… sigh.
