Brilliant - things an agency should never say

Today was Martin Luther King Jr day. It's a sort-of-bank-holiday that not everyone observes. So I half worked from home, half unpacked boxes. We're into the books at the moment, although we don't have any bookcases to put them on because we had built in units in the alcoves either side of the chimney breasts in London (bit like this). It's a great journey of (re)discovery. Everything had been packed up for a while because of the building work before we left, so we've forgotten about lots of different books. It's great having time to unpack, flick through, re-read and stack in a pile! Found this old trade ad for Thames Television (which is sadly no longer providing Londoner's with their commercial TV) in a book on the art of copy.

'Twas penned by Steve Henry (now ECD at TBWA\London), in the 80's. Heard most of these at some point (except maybe point 9, 12) and I honestly have heard someone say 4, but substituted Bentley for Ferrari (on reflection, much like my earlier post).
