You remember the one. It featured a load of hungry builders in the back of a van, singing the immortal lines, to the tune of ‘Que Sera Sera’, ‘will it be chips or jacket spuds/will it be salad or frozen peas/will it be mushrooms/fried onion rings/you’ll have to wait and see/hope it’s chips it’s chips/we hope it’s chips.’ Yes, what a great advert for McCain Oven Chips that was. except, in a baffling case of mass delusion, everyone’s now forgotten that the commercial was, in fact, for Steakhouse Grills, presumably on the basis that seeing as they were singing about chips, they must have been advertising chips.

TV CREAM SAYS: CONTENTIOUS 'CHIPS' LINE LATER CHANGED TO 'NOTHING ELSE WILL DO!' M0RE LOGICAL, BUT WHO SANG ALONG TO THAT?

    I feel obligated to mention those Creature Comforts ads for the gas board…

    I remember another ad for these where a cabby takes an American tourist back to his house to be served the above products, after being told to take him to the best steakhouse in town.
