BT couple, Adam (Kris Marshall) and Jane (Esther Hall) are to have a baby in the next part of their ad story.

Viewers were given the chance to vote for what happens next and a massive 1.6 million chose the soppy option.

Adam will be “stunned” when Jane gives him the news in a TV slot that will air tomorrow.

The love story between broadband lover Adam and divorced mum of two Jane has been running for 5 years now and has amounted to 35 ads over that time period.

The last ad featured Jane rubbing her stomach which led to 70% of viewers voting for a baby while other fans suggested that Jane should leave adam for her ex.

The new ad will preview from today on the couple’s official Facebook page.

 

Here are some of the best football ads from the 2010 World Cup:
















The ad is designed to be seen on both 3D and 2D TV sets; the idea behind viewing it in 2D is that it gives viewers the chance to imagine what the advert will look like in 3D. Watching football in 3D is going to totally redefine the experience of watching the game at home; Sony are giving you a taste of what it will be like.

If you did want to see it in full HD 3D, you can visit selected Sony Style stores from June 12th onwards.

 

OH MY GOD!

The World Cup is nearly upon us! Of course, it’ll play havoc with my trying to review TV shows – but I don’t care!

And this new Nike advert has whetted my appetite no end!

In this video, we see weird glimpses of an imagined future which sees trapeze women doing overhead kicks and Wayne Rooney living in a caravan with a massive tramp’s beard.

All set to a soundtrack by prog rock mentalists Focus, to boot!

It really is a wonderful thing. Adidas, the ball is very much in your court now.

BRING ON THE WORLD CUP 2010!!!

Complete with weird close up shot of the cow’s udder:

The ad finishes with the cow pushing aside mirrors and pushing back a purple curtain to finish with an ensemble act:

Lyrics of Putting on the Ritz used in Cadbury’s TV ad:

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-Duper.

Why don’t you go where fashion sits?
Puttin’ on the ritz.
