I like it, pretty cool. Frankie Goes to Hollywood makes it.

yep, the tune's used brilliantly - it's called 'From Soft to Hard', to save anyone bother as there's another instrumental version of Relax that isn't quite the same.

Yeah it is good, you can view it on their website somewhere.

The Norwich Union changing it's name one with Bruce Willis and Co gets on my tits and the moment has it is on almost every ad break.

Agreed. Cheeky cows should be hit over the head with the box and sent to bed with no dinner, whilst asleep the dad should peroxide their hair white then ask them in the morning how it feels.

I hate that bloody add also where's the mum !! Is the advert subconsiously telling the viewer that grey hair leads to divorce and lack of action ?

I think he's meant to be a widower!
Anyway, it's an American ad so subtlety and nuance were never going to enter into the equation. Any man who uses that Just for Men crap deserves to never get laid again. Either do it right or not at all, plus grey hair on men isn't the same as for women, it can make some men a thousand times more attractive!

I've been seeing this advert a lot on sky as it's before anything vaguely sci-fi. It annoys the hell out of me but the biggest failing of this advert is that even though I've seen it at least a hundred times, I don't know who this company is.

Just caught a very stange advert that seemed to feature a talking jelly sweet snake and a jellybaby, the latter just shouting 'BRING ON THE TRUMPET'S!!!' for no readily apparent reason.

WTF?!?!?

Been loving that ad for weeks, and saying "Bring on the Trumpets!" out loud too. That's Rufus Hound saying it in the ad.




Trumpets!

me too. I mean George Harrison must have really struggled to be famous with such a normal name.

yeah, i assumed widower as well, thought it quite a sweet advert. If a bit "well get over the death of your wife and get some nicer hair and lets replace mom with a new mom" sort of thing.

Have a poo at Pauls is a bit weird to me.
