    Very clever ad. Well done.

    Makes me pine for the 70s when we used to have a restaurant here in Toronto that had a few big screens and played commercials from all over the world. It was great. I found that European commercials were so much more creative.

    Where is this commercial from?

    It's a UK thing. The woman in it is Rachel Stevens who is a singer (if you can call it that ). She does a good job in the ad though.

    Good stuff, Steve. Geez, now you got me thinkin' about the prospect of opening up a restaurant with a few screens to play non-stop award winning commercials.

    He's, ummmm, currently indisposed (incarcerated for money laundering). But when he gets out in a few years, he's got the job!

    Very effective indeed. There are plenty of very stupid, and annoying adverts here in the UK, if you take the time to really listen and watch some of them, 90% of them are totally pointless and nothing to do with the issue or product involved, some though, like that, are very clever.

    A few I have noticed recently are the government adverts about drink driving (or it could be wearing a seat belt, can't quite remember as it is a while since I have seen it), where the pizza splats against the windscreen, and looks just like somebody's bodily fluids.

    Some other effective adverts are the 'stop smoking' ads, where the fat drops from the cigarette on to the chair, and then says this is what is clogging your arteries every time you smoke. Disgusting stuff, but if it works, I'm all for it!

    Wasn't that long ago, I remember working at one them in the 80's. Funny enough it was called "The Groaning Board" world commercials everyday, the ones in the evening were a little more raunchier.

    On a serious note, self examination is very important, for men and for women, for cancer. Even more so important for folks pushing 40 (me! ) as early detection is the key!

    What a great, attention-grabbing advert. It's usually adverts that either play on the male's obsession in beautiful and/or scantily clad women, or just make you think "what the hell!" that get the best results.

    Ok, I started watching it, but killed it before it got too far... Not something I want to be watching at work.

    My guess is that its an advert telling people to check for prostate cancer?
