The Week: Advertising News - Lego resurrects 'kipper' ad

Lego is bringing back its classic "kipper" ad from 1981 to celebrate its 50th birthday.

The animated ad, created by TBWA, will be aired in UK cinemas in November. Featuring Tommy Cooper's voice, it shows how many different objects can be made with Lego bricks - including a submarine-eating kipper - by showing two animals changing to ever bigger and fiercer creatures.
