As I'm relatively new on here, this might be a Titanic moment but I was thinking about having a weekly "Classic Youtube" topic. What do you think?

 

I'll start it off with this classic video from The Strawbs that I've just used to wind up my co-workers/colleagues as there is talk of a strike in the long term future

Classic, eh? :grin:

That's a good idea, there's loads of opportunity with this one. I watched some old adverts the other day through youtube, on the back of Davegtt posting up an Um-Bongo ad. I found Kia-Ora (Too Orangey For Crows), the Chewits Monster ad (Cloverfield ripped this off big time!), and the Weetabix ad with the biscuits dressed in rolled up jeans, braces, white tees, and Dr Martens. I'm sure Ray Winstone/Bob Hoskins does a voiceover on that...

 

EDIT: It was Bob Hoskins.

Here's this week's classic anthem (complete with Rambo on lead guitar... :grin: )

 

John Farnham - You're The Voice (1986)

:grin: i remember watching that a while ago.

 

Has the same effect being latics at times too :wink:

There was an advert for football manager 2005 which is equally as funny. Think it ended up getting banned.

 

 

:lol::lol:

 

As for Classic youtube - you can't not have a link to the evolution of dance.

More classic YouTube. This miss is worse than Ronnie Rosenthal's 1992 miss for the Mickeys at Villa… You can see what the guy's thinking "I'm gonna burst the onion bag with this one…" Oops!

For Latics, well Deano's miss vs Bristol Rovers and Vernon missed one, from 3 yards out, middle of empty goal, over the bar) vs Bournemouth a couple of years ago.

 

Struggling to think of any that beat Kanu for WBA v Boro, and Ljungberg for Arsenal v Bolton.

Blatant plagiarism Mr. Butler as I posted this in The Andy Gorton Taproom yesterday.
