This year, we’ve seen Gerry Anderson shows re-entering popular culture with gusto. These three adverts show you that even after his sad passing last year, Gerry’s shows are still incredibly influential and culturally relevant.
In this brilliant advert for the new Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG engine, they’ve combined Tinie Tempah and the Stingray theme into a very unusual mash-up. Maybe they should release it as a single?
A slightly more subtle reference can be seat in this 2013 SEAT Leon advert. See the kid’s toy? It’s an Eagle from Space:1999!
Finally Samsung’s new Galaxy Gear wristwatch communicator (smart watch) references Alan Tracy from Thunderbirds…
Isn’t it nice to see these Gerry Anderson shows being used in modern day ads?
