    Brilliant advert.

    I second what Drac says, the Robinsons advert is definitely the advert of the moment!

    Just went to youtube to watch the Robinson’s one – on second watch it definitely did the same to me. Very clever.

    Great Robinsons ad. Just put bikes in there and it would be perfect πŸ˜€

    Like. Good on ’em.

    Shot on Box Hill Zig Zags except the shot at 20s (bend then climb) has been mirrored, that bend’s a left hander when climbing not a right hander.

    Both good, but the Robinsions one brings a tear to my eye. Very clever.

    Glad I’m not the only one with the Robinsons ad.

    That Halfords one always puts a smile on my face.

    Brill ad, made me smile. The young girl at the end really reminds me of my sister when she was that age.

    This is just great. Made me quite emotional, although the MTB skills are a bit lacking…

    Robinsons ad, not seen that before, I was laughing at the bit where they were sword fighting with sticks

    Then in the last second it dawned on me and it got me 😳

    Brilliant,

    The clever thing with the Robinson’s one is once you’ve seen it a few times you see loads of clues.

    Would you believe it I was watching the Robinsons ad then got emotional a damn fly flew in my eye and made it water. Bad timing.

    great advert!!

    although the MTB skills are a bit lacking…

    those guys struggling down the banking could have been any one of us STW users….so pretty accurate really… πŸ˜‰

    the Halfords ad is brilliant πŸ™‚

    Really well thought out, love the Klunker guys – that really impressed me!!

    Good to see everyone catered for. Really brings home the diversity of cycling.

    Looks like a 2CV made it in as well!

    Clues: Robinsons 0:28 “I am your father”, amongst others (reaching glasses from shelf). Nice film but not really sure how it connects to the product. And orange squash kicks off my asthma anyway.

    Halfords wins for me. The Halfords product is mostly the reason the people are having fun, with the squash it’s nothing to do with it.

    At 43 seconds, is that a paperboy binning all the papers!?
