Great Advert

Not much on TV again this weekend but one advert really got my attention.  Anyone see or heard the advert with Anthony Hopkins for Sky Movies?  He is reminiscing about the movie 'Rocky' which he describes as 'hokey',  Great word and a great ad Smiley
Quote
hokey - effusively or insincerely emotional; "a bathetic novel"; "maudlin expressions of sympathy"; "mushy effusiveness"; "a schmaltzy song"; "sentimental soap operas"; "slushy poetry"
kitschy, maudlin, mawkish, schmaltzy, schmalzy, bathetic, sentimental, slushy, soppy, soupy, mushy, drippy


Any other good ads?

There's a series, the one he does on Blade Runner (a personal favourite) is excellent.

Not seen that one.  Will keep an eye open for it.  I've heard similar ads by other artists though.

I don't see adverts 95% of the time with me having a SKY + Box  Cheesy 
That is the best advert for having a SKY + Box  No adverts just skip through them.
