The 1997 'Parklife' one filmed in London's Hackney Marshes is perhaps the most memorable. Took its name from a 1994 song by Blur.

Marlboro, The Marlboro Man Report Abuse
Who doesn't know the cowboy on the horse? This is one of the best advertising campaigns that Marlboro has created. Most people, even without seeing a brand name, could identify the Marlboro Man when shown a picture, even non-smokers.

Maxwell House, "Good to the last drop" Report Abuse
A clever campaign created and made famous by Maxwell House coffee. Whenever I drink Maxwell House coffee, the saying pops in my mind for some reason. It was definitely a catchy phrase that is easy to remember.

Like the Heineken adverts, it reflected popular tastes of the time like Treasure Hunt and Old Spice, both of course turned into classic adverts.

British Airways - The World's Favourite Airline Report Abuse
Classic example being the 1989 'Face' advertisement that ran for a few more years into the 1990s. Check out the 'Manhattan' one from the early 1980s that was the forerunner of such high profile adverts including the London 2012 Olympic ad campaign.
