Can anyone remember an advert in the late 80's or early 90's where there is a little girl in a big city, possibly new york. She's just walking around the city, she looked about 4 and was wearing a traditional wool coat if I remember rightly. I remember seing the advert and thinking she was the cutest little girl ever. I'd love to know the name of the advert so I could watch it on utube. I can't remember what it was advertising though. If any of you remember it please let me know. smile

Was it a bank or insurance?

Was she in colour & the rest in black & white?

She had a red coat.

Car advert of some sort.

Yes I think so, like the little girl from schindelers list.

I thought of it the other day when my daughter was wearing her red wool traditional coat and with her long ringlets it made me think of the advert. It would be so interesting to see if they do look alike.

Yes, that's what I said. sad

Oh I've just realised I spelt it with just one mistake. That is actually very good for me. grin

Was definitely a car advert - VW?

I've had a look and still can't find it. It's annoying.

A little googling has come up with this - twas a Peugeot 406 ad and here it is on you tube. I clearly have too much time on my hands!

You just inspired me to look up my old favourite ad. I am laughing very hard here!

TheVirginGoober Wed 10-Dec-08 19:12:20

The 3rd on down, 1989 advert, with the geeky bloke.

TheVirginGoober Wed 10-Dec-08 19:16:33

That's the one SEA.
I love that ad.

nannyeggnogg Wed 10-Dec-08 19:17:35

goober, I've been trying to find that animated paxo ad for years. Thanks!

mummyloveslucy Wed 10-Dec-08 19:18:41

Hi, I've found it. It wasn't the peugeot one. ( although she does look more like my daughter than this add.)

It's the 1988 VW passat add in NYC.
I's so sweet when she kicks her leg up.

southeastastra Wed 10-Dec-08 19:26:08

why are you both obsessed with paxo ads grin

mummyloveslucy Wed 10-Dec-08 19:32:18

Hear is a link to the add, I hope it works. smile

TheVirginGoober Wed 10-Dec-08 19:34:18

Not obsessed, just interested in an un healthy way.

mummyloveslucy Wed 10-Dec-08 19:37:20

It didn't work, why don't my links ever work? blush

mummyloveslucy Wed 10-Dec-08 20:00:52

Thanks smile It's sweet isn't it?

nannyeggnogg Wed 10-Dec-08 20:50:57

Lol not obsessed with paxo - couldn't remember what it was for but I remembered the advert because it showed a chicken cinema with a film starring George Seagull and Gregory Peckory, oh how it made me chuckle hmm grin.

However, whenever I desccribed the advert to other people they though I had made it all up. Ah but now they'll have to eat their words..mwahahaha!
