Scotch Video Tape Skeleton Adverts

When did you last buy a VHS video tape and what brand was it? I guess it was was probably too long ago to accurately remember when, but do you remember if it was a Scotch brand video cassette?

For many years Scotch were the market leaders in video tapes and backed their products up with a ‘lifetime guarantee‘.

To promote these tapes they ran a series of television adverts featuring an animated skeleton who sang the praises of Scotch tapes. The distinctive voice of the skeleton was provided by actor Deryck Guyler who was probably best known for playing the school caretaker Potter in the ITV sitcom Please Sir.

Below are a couple of Scotch video tape adverts I found on YouTube that were posted by HallOfAdvertising.
