Ad Fab was a 1996 video release which traced the history of TV advertising from the Gibbs SR commercial in 1955 to Dunlop's more surreal efforts in the 1990s, with more than seventy examples, including the Cinzano adverts featuring Leonard Rossiter and Joan Collins, Hamlet cigar ads, Nick Park's clay animation adverts for electricity, PG Tips chimps, and John Smith's beer commercials. Contributors include director Hugh Hudson and musician Dave Stewart. John Peel was the narrator.
