Creepy Cadbury advert: eyebrow dance

Personally, I think the current Cadbury advert on TV with the dancing eyebrows is very creepy but the advert has become very popular via the internet: How TV ads are taking the net by storm The latest TV commercial from chocolate maker Cadbury, in which two schoolchildren's eyebrows "dance" along to a funky soundtrack, has been hailed as proof that - for advertisers - the internet, not television, is now king. (link via guardian.co.uk) Watch the advert: What are your thoughts about the advert? Do you like it?

  1. I'm not keen on it and I can see why you think that it's creepy!
    I have to say that it is rather clever and surely typical of what some children of that age would do! xx

  2. Oh I agree that it's rather clever and typical of what some children would do at that age!

    My teenage son loves watching it - but mostly because he knows how much I dislike it! He thinks it's hilarious.

  3. I thought the first five seconds was funny, especially the boy. He seems to have the eyebrow movement down better than the girl. Then it just got really annoying. What's the point? Never mind...I already know the answer.

  4. Hi Melissa - I thought it was funny for about the first five seconds too...but that was only when I saw it for the first time. Now whenever it comes on TV, I just think it's very creepy and definitely not funny. As you say it just gets annoying to watch it.

  7. I can't say that I enjoy watching it but I will agree that it's memorable. Cadbury seem to have cornered the market for unusual adverts that are hard to forget.

  8. Sorry, you probably got bored with this topic days ago but I feel I must stick up for this brilliant piece of advertising. I think it's probably a bit of a 'British' thing - we can be a bit juvenile in our sense of humour sometimes, but I love it. Just makes me giggle - went on line to see if I could find out anything about the kids themselves and found your blog instead! Good to see ourselves through others eyes!

  9. Hello and thanks for visiting!

    I usually love British humour but I just happen to think this advert is rather creepy instead of funny. Mind you, I know a lot of people - like you do - love the advert. And with all the reactions - both good and bad - it's doing a fantastic job advertising for Cadbury!
