Egg Marketing Board: Tony Hancock (Crossword)

Have you ever heard a pork pie grunt? Eggs are the answer in more ways than one in this classic TV ad.

Advert 1966 1 mins


Hancock had many a cross word with Patricia Hayes’ Mrs Cravatte character. Even after his half hour was over their bickering continued in a clever series of egg adverts. In this example the conundrums of a crossword provide the perfect foundation for a sitcom advert on the virtues of eggs, which certainly do sound better than eels for breakfast.
