Worst TV Ad Of All Time?

I challenge you to top this for a piece of dated cliche ridden shockery. It is frankly one of the most eye gougingly bad pieces of advertising I have ever come across.

The creative sat opposite me was lost for words when I showed him this.

A 1984 Toyota Corolla ad from South Africa, the worst ad of all time? Please prove me wrong...

That is so bad it's good.

Seriously, if it was done for a new car, ironically, I'd love it. (Car would have to be a retro car I guess, but hey...)

It's bad, but isn't the worst because it's (or it seems) naive. It's like the Japanese trying to be cool and failing, but only because they don't understand. Now Paul Daniels doing Tesco car insurance is trying to be something, but failing miserably even to be ironic because it's so unoriginal, cynical and downright naff.
