Can anybody remember an advert in the 80s (i think) that raised everybodys eyebrows, as there was a man running with (ahem) not much on in the underwear department, things wobbling about etc. Racking our brains but cannot find it!!

Can you remember anything else about it?

What were they advertising? And were there any bad puns on lunch boxes?

Brad Pitt advertising Pringles?

Not much running, but anyway...

Ive an idea it was for road safety, green tracksuit maybe?

Nope, found that, it was green cross code and not him. Was it a soap powder ad , with a man running in a tracksuit or hero suit , his nether regions bobbing up and down. Damn wish I could remember!

Could it have been one of the R Whites ads?

Though I think that might have been pyjamas.

can only think of the levis 501 heard it through the grapevine ad from the 80s, nothing jiggling about though

Wasn't that Nuck Kamen?

I expect OP would have remembered Nick Kamen.

But of course there was the spoof version (where the fully naked blokes on the other side of the launderette thought he was a wimp for keeping his pants on).

That was for Carling Black Label. They did a lot of spoofs, some of them very good. Could you be thinking of one of theirs?

Are you sure you're not just remembering Linford Christie's jiggling lunchbox OP?
