Oh damn, a cigarette commercial. This one aired during the mid-1960s (either 1964 or 1965). Yes, it is one of those "I'd rather fight than switch" commercials. From the United States (I mention this as I upload ads from several countries).

A 1970 British public information film. I'm surprised this was filmed in B&W, as British television had already switched to colour by then. (note: the date provided is from the Charley Says DVD, however let me know if it is incorrect)

A British public information film from the 1980s. With Dave Prowse, who wore the costume of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars films. Note: The DVD Charley Says wrongly says this is from 1976, but that's not possible, as it features a 1980 Morris. Note: the "3" simply means it is the third Green Cross Code short for which I don't know the title; it does not mean it is the third one made (there were plenty of others made before it).
