Tango 'orange man' by Howell Henry Chaldecott Lury

No commercial better symbolized the creative iconaclism of Howell Henry Chaldecott Lury during the early 90s than its first Tango spot for Britvic.

Shot in the style of a football replay, it features someone being "hit" by the taste of Tango when a bald orange man runs up to him and smacks him around the face.

A follow-up film was changed to show the orange man kissing his victim after fears that children copying his antics might perforate each other's eardrums.
