    I actually like the first Go Compare ad from their current campaign, the one in the coffee shop.Right at the end, with the two customers sitting at the table being shaken by the tenor's voice, one asks "I wonder how me he charges." "Oh, he's only a tenner," comes the foam-spattered reply.It always makes me chuckle.

    We've just popped the full Top 20 on the tellyAds site. Was a little bit surprised at the order that they came out in, but it's nice to be reminded that the UK still makes some great ads.http://www.tellyads.com/ad_of_the_decade.phpHappy Christmas!
