I saw this classic chocolate ad for the first time in years last night :D The one with the red and blue car :D :yippee: :yippee:

Glad this has come back :)

The red car and the blue car had a race
All red wants to do is stuff his face...

No idea why it was on TV last night :D I also saw they once brought back the Aquafresh toothpaste ad from the 80's some time ago, its not on now, but that old tune lives on in the current ad.

They have "Flyte" bars now that are like the original Milky Way I think, I remember thinking the white centred one was much nicer than the old Milky Way :D
Now the only "Milky way" just has the white centre.

spot the differences between the 1989 ad and the 2009 ad (there are a few):

They changed "Smart Old Blue" to "Good Old Blue" :confused:
"He Took The Milky Way" instead of "He chose the Milky Way"
"Cause he knows its something that tastes just right" instead of "Cause he knows it wont spoil his app-e-tite" :)

The sign at the start of the 89 race said Lunchville - the 09 version says Playville

The 89 ad sees the red car munching on the doughnut sign - the 09 ad does not

The 89 ad has the Dinnertown sign before the gap in the road - the 09 ad has Light Town on the sign

The neon sign on the 89 ad says "The sweet you can eat before meals without ruining your appetite" - the neon sign on the 09 ad says "Lighten up and play"

This could be political madness gone mad, or whoever controls adverts clamping down on obesity levels or something.

It might be obesity, or maybe Mars can't say it won't spoil your appetite or something.

I think they changed the Milky Way ad because of obesity.
