The 20 best adverts of 2008

BBC's cartoon monkey olympics

Damon Albarn just can’t put a foot wrong. He’s fronted a multi-platinum rock band, created Gorillaz, the world’s best virtual band, and sang in his own musical super group, The Good, the Bad & the Queen. Oh, and he’s written his own opera called Monkey: Journey to the West. He’s also made one of the best ads you’ll see in a good while, a cartoon introduction to 2008’s Beijing Olympic games, complete with kung fu pigs and flying monkeys. Of course.

Best bit? Captain Pigman (our name) swinging out of a dragon’s mouth on a stick. (1.21)
