Back in the days when local Tv stations use to put in work and watching tv was fun, there were some Litt tv commercials that we all sang along to and looked forward to watching. Not like the Nigerian advert sector is weak or anything but back in the late 90s and early 2000s there were some dope adverts that regularly popped up on our tv screens that are somewhat impossible to forget. Dope adverts like….
1. BLUEBAND ADVERT
I don’t know about Y’all but this advert is hella emotional for me. Watching a young bou grow from infancy to being a man and seeing the closeness he had with his mother. Pure bliss, who every scripted and directed this advert has to make heaven because it played directly into our emotions.
2. PEAK MILK ADVERT
Another somewhat emotional advert that shows the love between a mother and a child. This time it’s between a mother and a daughter
3. RIBENA ADVERT
This advert is playful and musical. Very easy to remember and has a relatable storyline that makes it hard to forget.
4. MTN ADVERT
I highly doubt there’s any other Nigerian advert that’s more emotional than this advert. Most people know the lines of this advert by heart and again, whoever came up with this advert should have a space in heaven waiting for him and if he/she is a Muslim they should have virgins awaiting them in heaven.
5. PANADOL EXTRA ADVERT
If this advert doesn’t make one buy a pack of panadol after watching it then there’s no other way to convince that person. I’d like to believe the advert back in the days tend to be more convincing than the adverts we have now.
6. AIRTEL ADVERT
This kind of advert was the first of it’s kind. The style in which they told the story of a young and struggling artist one would easily forget they were watching a commercial and think they were watching a movie.
7. UBA ADVERT
Most people compare this advert to GT Banks 737 advert and call it a ripoff, well, that’s their opinion. We can all agree that even if people call it a ripoff it’s way better and catchier and a lot of people who don’t even use UBA bank find themselves downloading the song and using it as a caller tune.
