A good advert for...?

Another TV advert has been popping up recently for - stereotypical psychiatrist's room with a patient lying on the couch who starts spouting -

Just one Cornetto give it to me.
Oo nuts oh hazelnuts oo Cadbury's take them and they cover them in... mild green fairy liquid.
Tell them about the honey mummy.
My name? It's J R Hartley.
I'm a secret lemonade drinker.
Whaaahh Bodyform, bodyform for you.
Acrington Stanley!

Oh dear so:

Delicious ice-cream from Italy, mumble, mum mum-ber-le give me Cornetto from Walls Ice creaaaaam.
Cadbury's is pretty much complete and obvious.
I can still make my mum laugh by substituting the word head for face in - Now hands that do dishes can be as soft as your face with...
Sugar Puffs and we were never supposed to ask why he was calling that bloke "mummy".
I can't remember what Wassup was advertising, some brand of beer I think - heh. [it's Budweiser after a search]
Yellow Pages with Fly fishing by JR Hartley so popular they actually published it.
I'm a secret lemonade drinker. R Whites, R Whites. I've been trying to give it up but it's one of those nights. R Whites, R Whites. R Whites lemona-a-ade I'm a secret lemonade drinker. R Whites, R Whites R Whites R Whites. R Whites lemonade?
Bodyform obviously.

and a favourite:

Milk urggh.
My mum says if I don't drink lot's of milk, when I grow up I'll only be good enough to play for Acrington Stanley.
Acrington Stanley; who are they?
Exactly. Nah get off
Give me some
Get off.

Sigh all from memory gods I'm sad ;-) Anyway the most telling thing I think about an advert promoting television advertising is how old the adverts they are using to illustrate the point. But as I've said how many good adverts are there about at the moment?
