Classic Cockney Adverts

Advertisers just love using Cockney accents to flog their gear. Maybe it's cos the original Cockneys were the market traders, barrow boys and costermongers of the East London marketplace - they had to push their wares or starve! Anyway, whatever the reason, here's a compilation of our top 10 favourite adverts featuring our beloved Cockney accent. See how many of these you can remember:
