I am a huge fan of the 80s, just look at my 80s playlist on Spotify, it’s the biggest I have. Ask Alexa what radio station I listen to most, it will respond (because ‘it’ is not a ‘she’) Absolute 80’s. My favourite TV programme? The Young Ones, the Bambi episode still represents the perfect 30 minutes of comedy writing ever.
For me it was and still is the Golden era in many respects. One of which is TV advertising, I thought the 80s feared no product, and had an open and engaging manor about it that actually got your attention and made you want that product through some clever sloganeering and character interactions.
As is often the case, YouTube sent me into a random blackhole the other day when an 80s TV Advert playlist entered my ‘Recommendations’ playlist - eventually I stumbled across this gem from 1988 - whilst still not old enough to drink at the time - I remember the impact this had on wine and how consumers flocked to the supermarket to purchase a bottle of this classic.
Not sure if any of you have a specific advert / memory of a wine advert / have witnessed a funny wine advert but I thought it would be fun to share to prompt more memories of years gone by.
