Commercial Break: A Damn Fine Ad

12 December 2008

The heads up for the supercheap coffee machine in today’s Deals Of The Day got me thinking about the caffeine-filled miracle drink even more than usual (which is a lot.)

So I tried to track down the greatest ever coffee ad. A kitsch Mellow Birds effort from the early 1980s? Fraid not. The ‘will they won’t they have it off’ debacle of a saga that put me off Nescafe Gold Blend for years? Nope.

It has to be this, a Twin Peaks spin-off, made for Japan, starring Kyle McLachlan as Agent Cooper and even directed by the mighty David Lynch himself. A blatant sell-out but top-notch genius nonetheless - even if the picture quality is a little wonky.
