The Cadbury Crunchie train robbery ad

Is it just us, or is this possibly the greatest New Zealand advert of all time?

Well, maybe the Toyota ‘bugger’ advert, or some iconic Tip Top, or L&P ad might actually be much better quality than this. But the Cadbury Crunchie train robbery advert just had so much going on, and so many sub plots, that you could watch it 4 or 5 times and still see something new going on in there. So reminiscent of Came a Hot Friday or Goodbye Pork Pie. And that jingle, how catchy was that?
