From the days when "they" could make adverts: Guinness Dancing Man

Nowadays TV adverts are woke signalling or just plain creepy; from the middle 90's here is the surrealism of Guinness's "Dancing Man".

This not only advertises the product unforgettably, achieving simultaneous artsy-ness and wit; but is very enjoyable even on first viewing. 

PS: If you haven't yet seen The Best Advert Ever (i.e. Blackcurrant Tango): now is the time to treat yourself

My kids loved the Blackcurrant Tango ad, despite utterly lacking any relevant context. "That fat man is funny, Mommy!"

By the way, they also enjoyed (as did I) The Eagle of the Ninth novel. They might need to be a bit older for the TV series, but in any event thanks for the recommendations.
