Adverts no-one remembers

I was thinking about adverts I can remember from the 80s and 90s, but no-one else seems to. Everyone remembers the old Tunes advert where the man asks for "a second class returd to Dottingham", but can anyone remember a Tunes advert with a man talking to a parrot, saying "who's a pretty boy then" in a "Dottingham" style voice? I can vaguely remember this part of the advert, but not what happens after he has Tunes. Whenever I have mentioned the advert no-one had remembered.

I can also remember an advert for Duracell that I'm pretty sure had Michael Hordern in it. It was from around 1990 and there were about 15 Duracell bunnies going mad in an old-fashioned living room with Michael Hordern sitting in the middle looking annoyed, he was wearing a checked jacket and typically looked very distinguished. I'm certain it was him at least.

There’s an ad I remember from when I was very little, so I’m guessing mid to late 70s, which used to show a group of men in kilts marching through a city. They may have been playing bagpipes, but I could be wrong there. The voiceover mentioned something about “tension”, so maybe a ad for headache tablets?

What was the advert from the mid 90s that had a guy going around at a house party with a banana which had a camera in it? Think it was for a beer.

Crooke's One-a-Day Multivitamins launched as '8 vitamins and 2 minerals', later to become 'great minerals and extra vitamins' over the years. Found the initial advert on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNBiPnWAZWo

“Five pairs of Wrangler Jeans”

Anyone else remember this? I seem to remember it was made on video rather than film which was rare at the time. The whole look and feel of it was very different to most other adverts of the time.

I can't find the particular one I was thinking of - it had a song with the words "Five pairs of Wrangler jeans hanging on the rail" (as far as I can remember - it was a long time ago! 😀)
