Title: St George (The Advert - 1996)
Post by: Bilgerat on January 23, 2016, 16:34:26
This 90 second advert was filmed partly in Kent (at St. Margarets at Cliffe) and was for Blackcurrant Tango. It won several awards and was voted one of the top 100 adverts ever made. The advert only aired ten times on prime-time national TV. It was criticized (and I've heard, banned) because of fears that it would stoke up hatred of foreigners.

Have a look at it and comment....

I'm sure I vaguely remember this. Those johnny foreigners don't like it up 'em, do they?
