    That was one of the ones in my 100 Greatest Ads book. I think it was number two.

    Here's a couple of my favourites from the book.

    Both great adds too, Smash is still my favourite though... Although the Cinzano on the plane add is a very close second...

    Famous scene near the end of the British WW2 movie 'Ice Cold in Alex.' This was later used as a TV ad for Carlsberg I've shown here. Harry Andrews (tough looking sergeant at the end) later observed: "I got paid more money for the ad than I did for the film."

    There's another story goes with this scene: John Mills had to drink the glass in one go and say the line: "Worth waiting for," which was to be one take. They found they had to use real lager because no substitute looked right. After several takes which failed because Mr Mills kept fluffing that one line, as he got more and more under the influence. They made a shot change at the end as he slams the glass down so he could say the line sober in another take.

    Now John Mills was a thoroughly professional actor, so you can't help but think he knew exactly what he was doing .. :heyhey:

    Nice one John … :pint:
