    Wasn't that Apple advert only ever aired at a Superbowl match and little to no airtime afterwards.

    For me though it has to be the Scotch Video Tape advert from the 80's

    Personally I see the best advert as one that stays in your head and 'enhances' the sales pitch element so that to me has to be the intel 'bell' jingle.

    The Amstrad PC1512 was quite a price breakthrough at the time...and that tagline was genius!

    Would people bring out the pitchforks if I put up a ps3 advert?

    Clearly it is the advert for the original Apple Pro mouse. The 'balls' that the marketing guy/gal must have had doing an ad like that for a silly little optical mouse and a wired one at that.

    My all-time favourite.

    On the sides of buses in Sydney on the launch of the Playstation 1

    "It's a beautiful day outside.
    Thank goodness for blinds"
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    There's a 'good' advert?

    Sorry, but I don't understand. All adverts are spawn of the devil.

    This is a bit of a classic audio tape ad too:
