McDonald's
"Leaf Blower"
20s
10 January 2017
UK Fast Food Restaurants

McDonald's appeal to customers who like to get their money's worth with this funny ad for their saver menu. A wife finally gets some peace and quiet to dry her hair... only to find her husband turning the leaf blower on her now he's finished with the garden. Like the rest of the ads in this campaign, this is short, punchy, and gets a chuckle in an effective 20".

Domino's Pizza
"Winter Survival"

McDonald's appeal to customers who like to get their money's worth with this funny ad for their saver menu.

McDonald's
"Lift"
60s
1 Jan 2017
McDonald's show how a broken lift becomes a sweet bonding experience for two women. Trapped alone together and awaiting rescue, the women share water, shoes, a scarf, secrets, stories, and a pair of headphones, but not even their new found friendship compels them to share the McDonald's Chicken Selects which is handed to them by their rescuers.

KFC
"Brexit Nativty"
60s
5 Dec 2016
This commercial for KFC certainly has the 'huh?' factor. So much so that - on first viewing - it prompted a lot of puzzled faces and a certain amount of head shaking. But the idea of a traditional head teacher being thrown by one of her teacher's politicisation of the annual Nativity play has grown on us. It's an ad of our time.

KFC
"Unrequited Love"
40s
5 Dec 2016
The Colonel narrates an unexpected love triangle in this ad for KFC. A pair of geriatric lotharios who caused a stir in their retirement home fighting over a 'fine young filly' are reconciled by their mutual fondness for KFC. And a good thing too, because their fair lady was busy "mutton-busting" another chap while they slugged it out, the floozy.

KFC
"Difficult Daughter"
30s
28 Nov 2016
The Colonel brings feuding families together with KFC's first Christmas Burger launched in the UK (featuring no turkey, weirdly). Kids may throw tantrums and teens may bring their obnoxious boyfriend along for the ride, but peace and serenity can be restored for the price of a burger - it's a Christmas miracle.

McDonald's
"Juliette"
90s
21 Nov 2016
McDonald's give hope to toys nationwide with their Christmas film. We're introduced to Juliette - a vintage doll who's never experienced playtime and has learnt to endure her loneliness with silent fortitude. Each day from her toy shop window she wistfully watches people meet up to share food and laughter in the McDonald's across the street... and she resolves to act.

Subway
"Festive Feast"
50s
17 Nov 2016
it's the morning after the office Christmas party, and you have The Fear - what was photocopied? Who was snogged? Will those pics of you and Ken... Len... Ben?... get sent to your entire friends list? Happily, Subway has the answer - a nice chunk of protein to kill the hangover and help brace you for the inevitable walk of shame back to your desk.

McDonald's McCafé
"Robots"
20s
6 Nov 2016
This latest McCafé spot appears in the 'Humans' ad break and features three Liverpudlian lasses discussing the possibility of the world being taken over by robots. This actually makes you want to hear more... this campaign should have some longer edits online and really cash in on the reality vibe.

McDonald's
"Chicken McNuggets"
40s
10 Nov 2016
McDonald's aim to set the record straight on Chicken McNuggets... again. The fast food restaurant has tackled what does and what doesn't go into their McNuggets once before, but they want to make sure everyone's got the message with this new execution. Forget beaks, bits, feet, innards, and feathers, says the VO - it's chicken breast through and through.

McDonald's
"Mexican Stack"
20s
9 Nov 2016
A woman misguidedly attempts to start a Mexican wave in this ad for the last of McDonald's globe-trotting limited edition burgers - the Mexican Stack, available for two weeks only. Someone ought to tell her about the British attitude to commuting... not likely to get any participation there; just a loud tut and the disapproving rustle of a newspaper at most.

McDonald's McCafé
"Romantic"
10s
1 Nov 2016
The grey van men are back in this latest McDonald's McCafé outing. This time, the lads are discussing that old chestnut - love. One of them insists he's the least romantic man in town - even describing his recent trip to Paris as more of an obligation than anything. After all, it was his honeymoon - "I had to go!" And they say romance is dead, eh?

McDonald's
"Swiss Stack"
20s
26 Oct 2016
McDonald's suggest your local multi-storey car park is an ideal substitute for the Swiss Alps. This motorist is surprised to see a blue-clad skier enjoying the exceptionally dry slope conditions. Shame about the lack of ski-lift, though. Those looking for a more low-key taste of Switzerland can try the chain's new Swiss Stack burger for two weeks only.

McDonald's McCafé
"Hunted"
20s
13 Oct 2016
Twins Hayley and Jenny consider how they'd respond if they were forced to go on the run like the 'Hunted' participants in this ad made specially to pop up first in the ad break during C4's reality wheeze. They quickly come to the conclusion that Jenny wouldn't last long as she'd be too hungry - it's hard to grab a McCoffee when you're a fugitive.

McDonald's
"Speaker"
30s
13 Oct 2016
McDonald's presents another good-natured example of life when the body is willing, but the mind is asleep. This chap suffers a communication breakdown while trying to order a drive-thru breakfast - ordering through the speaker rather than a bin would be a good start. Director David Kerr coaxes some lovely, groggy frustration from the lead actor before his mistake dawns on him.

McDonald's
"South African Stack"
20s
12 Oct 2016
A bloke wearing an elephant mask bumbles his way to his car keys while his partner appears non-plussed on the sofa. Takes all sorts, we suppose. The visual gag promotes the latest globe-trotting menu from the fast food chain and first up is the South African Stack burger. Meanwhile, how's this guy going to explain himself to the traffic police?

McDonald's McCafé
"Sophie & Tom"
20s
8 Sep 2016
In a special Olympics version of McDonald's McCafé ads, Tom Daley talks to best friend Sophie Lee about getting into the zone. He describes the visualisation technique which has generally served him well during an amazing career. Unfortunately, in Rio, he visualised himself belly flopping into the water like a drunk football fan.

KFC
"Meet the Zingers"
20s
5 Sep 2016
This KFC ad suggests anyone looking for attention from an attractive shop assistant should order a Zinger sandwich post-haste. After getting more bite than he bargained for, this bloke stops outside a pet shop while wiping away the tears. Mistaking him for an especially emotional animal lover, a pet shop employee gives him a hug to go along with his meal box.

McDonald's
"Judo Legend"
30s
30 Aug 2016
This curly-haired gentleman willingly enters a world of pain each and every time his judo instructor asks for a volunteer from the line-up. Sparing his fellow classmates the discomfort of a well-applied arm hold or a face-first rendezvous with the mat, Elliot earns legendary status amongst the West Heath judo community... and one participant knows exactly what kind of chicken sandwich is worthy of his efforts.

Burger King
"Dave"
30s
22 Aug 2016
Three alleged grown-ups describe their respective Burger King meal choices while wearing the chain's trademark cardboard crowns. The chap in the middle thinks it's "bonkers" that each meal only costs £2.99, and playfully suggests someone called Dave should be fearing for his job - cue an employee actually called Dave/David looking on with uncertainty behind the counter. What are the odds, eh?

McDonald's
"Acting Masterclass"
1 min 40s
18 Aug 2016
This year's crop of summer blockbusters may have failed to set the world alight, but this well-performed McDonald's ad hints at a seat-filler with extra bite. One can't help but wonder how the lead in this watery epic manages to summon such raw emotion in each and every take... but the reason has more to do with matters of the stomach than the heart.

McDonald's
"Summer of Good Times"
60s
17 Aug 2016
Come rain, shine, or a maddening combination of the two, McDonald's aim to help foster lasting memories of summer with a range of community activities and stunts. This ad features some appealing outdoor photography as punters young and old enjoy themselves whatever the conditions, while select items from the restaurant's menu are shown to be the ideal accompaniment for such carefree antics.

McDonald's
"Community Football"
30s
10 Aug 2016
Amidst all the hyper-stylized depictions of the beautiful game we tend to see at this time of the year, it's good to provide balance with something more innocent and grounded. This nicely shot McDonald's ad goes back to grassroots by showing youngsters developing ball skills and teamwork thanks to coaches and equipment backed by the fast food chain.

McDonald's
"Commuter"
30s
27 Jul 2016
McDonald's offer an understanding nod to those who rise but don't necessarily shine after their morning alarm clock. A dishevelled chap attempts to find a seat to enjoy his breakfast wrap, only to find himself in the lap of a fellow commuter. Textbook British embarrassment, even if the advertised product looks like a disconcerting use of a tortilla wrap.

McDonald's
"Spacewalk"
60s
26 Jul 2016
An astronaut is flagging outside his spacecraft in the cold wastes of the void. His grasp on the cord connecting him is failing... even the thought of his wife and children can't quite galvanise him to make it back to the safety of the hatch. But his desperate colleague has an idea... and it just might work.

KFC
"Spicy"
10s
25 Jul 2016
KFC pack in as much heat as ten seconds will allow in this quick commercial for the fast food chain's new Rio BBQ Bites. Spices crash against fiery peppers to create some eye-watering vapours, and the satisfying food photography gives punters a decent idea of what kind of taste experience awaits them at the Colonel's gaff during the Olympics.
