Tommy Cooper & Lego

One of the thing I always loved about British ads when I was younger was the way they made their choice of voiceover artist part of the idea.

This classic Lego spot from 1981 is a great example.

Of course the ad is strong enough to work with pretty much anyone doing the voiceover.

But if you grew up in the UK in the 60s or 70s then the sound of Tommy Cooper doing the v/o makes this ad even better.

I can't think of any Aussie ads that use v/o like this. Can you?
