The genius of CDP

When I was a kid growing up in England we used to often say that the ads were better than the programs.

Not all the programs obviously. But many of them.

And most of the ads that have stayed with me for a lifetime were created by Collett Dickenson Pearce.

This morning someone sent me a link to a YouTube channel of 100 of CDP's best tv ads.

It was a real trip down memory lane. Back to a time of Chopper bikes, Spangles and Space Hoppers.

And like those three iconic seventies products CDP are no longer with us.

But gee their works still looks great.

Go check it out here.
