For some reason, even though I planned to, we never got round to discussing something I noticed years ago about Creme Eggs. And that’s the name. They are clearly spelled Creme Eggs, but we call them Cream Eggs. Silly really.

let’s have a quick look at how they’ve been flogged through the years. Here’s an advert from the 70s.

And the 80s.

And when Spitting Image did some, choosing to show Lester Piggot humping a giant one.

Before George Dawes had a go too.

What’s The Opposite Of Tomato Ketchup?

It’s not like me to have a favourite advert, or advertising campaign, but I do. And it’s this.

Except it’s not. Because these adverts were re-dubbed by Simon Pegg for the UK.

And are all the better for it, and for the lack of music. But still, this isn’t my favourite advert. That’s this one, which I have never been able to find online before now.

I have no idea why I like that so much, but I do. The other instalments in the series never stuck with me, but here are a couple more.

And this one, which has a different voice over altogether for some reason.
