Great TV ads from around the world

Wednesday 21st November marks a very special day in the World TV Calendar, it's World TV Day. The UN's celebration of the global cultural impact of television. 

To celebrate we've put together a gallery of the best in TV advertising from around the world for 2018. Just some of the many treats within the gallery include a gentleman being locked out of his house as a result of the perils of voice activation, and an unsuspecting parent naming their child 'Calamari'.
