Adverts ADVERTS

Birds Eye Steakhouse Grill Advert

1983 - Cue a van with some workers in it wondering what's for tea, with each of them offering an accompaniment to said faux steaks to the tune of Que Sera:

# Will it be chips or jacket spuds? Will it be salad or frozen peas? Will it be mushrooms? Fried onion rings? We'll have to wait and see... Hope it's chips it's chips, we hope it's chips it's chips...# etc as they drive off.

A great advert that is still stuck in my head!

    One of the actors singing "you'll have to wait and see" is Daniel Peacock (front left), who played "Mental Mickey" in an Only Fools and Horses episode ("It's Only Rock n Roll"). He's also appeared in One Foot in The Grave as the "Neanderthal" gardener who bury's Victor up to his neck in the garden and appeared in another 1980s musical advert, for Do It All DIY stores ("If only they knew it, how Do It All do it.... you can bet, they'd be doing it as well"). Daniel's father is Trevor Peacock, who starred in the Vicar of Dibley as Jim "No no no yes" Trott.

    What's the question at the end of adver? Is it "Will you give your old man one of these stake house grillsk?" It's hard to understand.

    Re the McCain 'feed me' advert: A distant memory tells me that the "mum" in that commercial was none other than Helen Lederer. Anyone able to confirm this?

    what about the mcain advert more recently... "Daddy or chips?" hrmm that advert was strange.... somehow i think the children who chose chips may have some kinda issues with their fathers... although it always looked liek a "happy family"... yea right

    Sarah, I remember that "Feed Me" advert for McCain chips - the boy was followed by a girl who said the same thing in an even deeper voice! I wonder if it's online anywhere :)
