Harry Enfield’s Advertisement Break

By no means a definitive list, but here are a number of advertising commercials featuring Mr Harry Enfield.

Let’s start with this one, with Kevin chomping down on a Toaster Pocket.

This one is a play on the dog adverts of the time, and includes the strapline “slip into something velvety” which is a bit dirty.

Dime Bar? Dime? Bar?

One campaign I don’t remember next, with Tim Nice-But-Dim selling us meat, circa 2000ish.

I’d completely forgotten about this one, also featuring Jennifer Saunders and Peter Cook, from 1991.

This one was banned apparently.

Skol? Does that still exist?

And Loadsamoney has a watch we might like.

He started selling earlier than I thought. Here’s one from 1988, for Asda, with Stavros.

Sometimes he ever tried to push his own stuff.
