Aardman Animations have been making many advertisements ever since their Enterprise Computers ad back in 1984, spanning many well-known brands such as Dairylea, LEGO, Chewits, Chevron, Walkers and so on. Some of their campaign work has even been featured on LMW before (Cuprinol, Lurpak) as well as a commercial starring their famous duo Wallace & Gromit. But there is even more of their advert work that remains lost online.

I think the Weetos one has been found! The other Weetos model on the website may have been unused or something.

I've actually got the Creature Comforts 'Dish Wash Electric' advert on a videotape, which I will upload later today.

If that was the posted Quickbrek/Creature Comforts video, than that's not the missing ad in question
