Top 5 Best UK TV Commercials

Updated on October 9, 2010

Simply The Best

Commercials on TV can be irritating when you watching a good program but sometimes the television ads are a welcome break from a program that has flopped, TV advertising can be a great way to get your product to the masses and sometimes a TV commercial is made that everyone remembers more than the actual TV program that they were watching.

Below are five of my all time favourite TV commercials from The UK

four of them are very funny and 1 of them is just pure genius.

5 Miller Time

I just found this commercial for Miller so corny even though it is an old joke played out.

and it has a Scottish theme too so it gets a bonus point lol

at number 5 on my list

5 Miller Time

4 Apple Tango

Tango have 2 places in my Top 5 This one is just silly but funny too.

number 4

4 Apple Tango


Irn Brew is a soft drink from Scotland, and it has a long list of funny commercials, this is taken from the movie the snowman and it is a good one at number 3


2 Orange Tango

This ad was banned after a few weeks because people were slapping each other and saying "youv'e been Tangoed" but it is sooooo funny!!!! at number 2 in my top 5

2 Orange Tango

1 Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate

This ad has got to be one of the best ever made, pure genius, from the first time I saw it I loved it and i would never get bored watching this one.

a worthy number 1

      I had forgotten about Irn Bru. "Made in Scotland. From girders" is the tagline I remember from -- ooh, long time ago, now.
