Kinder Surprise 'humpty dumpty' by Lansdown Euro

Adults of a certain age will remember the delight of opening one of the chocolate eggs to find a self-assembly toy.

This bizarre ad features a grotesque Humpty Dumpty getting increasingly excited by his chocolate egg and the toy contained within.

The ad, created by Lansdown Euro, finishes with our hero falling backwards off the wall to his doom.
