Cadbury has produced some excellent adverts of the years. From the airport trucks to the drumming gorilla, they have produced some genuine talking points amongst friends, family and colleagues. 2009 saw one of the most bizarre adverts ever released by them, but it quickly turned into one of the most memorable adverts from the noughties. Be prepared for an excellent ‘Thursday Throwback’!
In fact, the Cadbury ‘dancing eyebrows’ advert was voted the best advert of the year and topped a ‘top 20 TV adverts’ poll on tellyAds.com. Just as a recap, the advert features a brother and sister sitting for a family portrait. When the photographer walks away, the siblings show off their talents and let their eyebrows dance to Freestyle’s 1989 track Don’t Stop the Rock. The advert cost £3.7m and was created by Fallon. This is the same company that produced the drumming gorilla advert. Soon enough, the whole Nation was having a go at replicating the ad, with some experiencing more success than others.
