That's the question.
"Classic Home Cinema" has this title in stock now - but I haven't got the faintest about what hides behind this title (well, I have my guesses...).
Does anyone own it and can lighten me up here? Also about how much feet it contains?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Best,
Michael

I have this one as well. British advert reel released by CHC. Very funny ads suitable only for a mature audience.

Some of the ads are inoffensive - such as a bra ad from an older era - but one or two, particularly the notorious 'luminous condom' ad, may not be ideal for all audiences. I'm not 100% certain but I suspect that this ad and one or two others, like the Fosters ad with a highly irreverent view of global warming, were considered too controversial and so were never used in cinemas.

An interesting story I heard that may be true is that some of the ads, on 35mm, were taken to a viewing theatre, to be seen and discussed by advertising executives. By the end of the occasion, they had consumed plenty of drinks and forgot to take the print away with them. At the time, someone involved in running the viewing theatre appreciated it's potential for release on Super 8, and so contacted CHC!

It is funny, just be careful who you show it to!

All the ads did run at cinemas, I remember them all, mostly early 90's era.
