Here is a great ad from Telstra Bigpond (their internet arm) in 2006.
Daniel: Dad, Why did they build the great wall of china?
Father: To keep out the rabbits …
Only 30 seconds long – worth a watch.
Proves that kids need the internet to research things that their Dads don’t know.
My other all-time favourite is “not happy Jan”, an ad for the Australian Yellow Pages directory in 2000.
It became a popular catchphrase for years to come and any Australian knows exactly what you mean when you say “not happy Jan!”.
They don’t make ads like these anymore…
