Bobby and Tina Moore together with Martin Peters and his wife appeared in an advert advertising visiting popping into the viewers local pub (second clip). My guess is that one is pre-Circa 1966.

Anecdotally

Bobby Moore and Jimmy Greaves -- minus wives -- regularly used to "pop into" the local (Slaters Arms) that was on the corner of my street in Romford for a quiet drink , or two, or ... :)

I was going to go for Dennis Compton, but I guess they didn't advertise Brylcream on TV.

1932 apparently. Although Weetabix was around in Australia in 1900. Which may explain why it is that they produce such fine athletes. That, or there's no other culture to speak of in Australia. :)

Could you cite your source please ?

How many sources do you need and why?

1. One credible source is enough

2. Citing sources is usually considered to be a polite means of verifying a claim as being fact when asked.

For instance, when I originally looked through the Wikipedia link that you provide I couldn't find any reference to Danny Blanchflower and television advertising. On a second skimming of that page I still can't. Could be that I just missed it ?

As for the second link, I found that one too inaccessible and cumbersome to negotiate for verification, or not, either way.

Not that I'm doubting what you claim in asking you to provide a credible source. Neither for your original reference point. More just out of interest really.

Correct

Weetabix

'Pass the hot milk'

Mr.BJ.

I think it's "sanmiguellight" who has been acknowledged as the lucky winner of a Gold Star...
