Bird’s Eye Beefburgers (film #2 in the Adverts section of TVArk). [Category: Commercial]

Utterly charming British TV commercial from the 70s for Bird’s Eye Beefburgers featuring two kids with thick regional accents. One kid tries to palm off his bargain brand beefburgers on to the other kid, but the other kid will have none of it. The accents really make this, upping the cute factor several notches. You also get to see kids eating their burgers with a knife and fork, which would never happen here in the States.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
