Ariston, and on
Alert and veteran WoS viewers may recall this featurette from some years back, documenting the then-lost legendary Ariston adverts using the theme music from the Game Boy version of Robocop. Well, t’other day someone posted a link on their blog to a cover version of the same theme music, and then someone else tweeted a reply linking the first person to the WoS page.
I spotted this thanks to excellent Firefox plugin Echofon, and the first person made a new blog post linking to a different Ariston ad with the GB tune. Spotting that led me to the real treat, though – a better-quality, two-and-a-half-minute full-length version of the ad, containing both the clips we’d previously linked and more besides. Modern technology, eh?
Freakiest white-goods ad ever? You decide.
