Cadbury's Milk Tray Man has finally made a long-awaited return to our television screens!

Chosen from a sea of 20,000 applications for the prestigious role, fireman Patrick McBride won the competition and appears in the brand new ad.

Our new Milk Tray Man can be seen skydiving from an aeroplane over treacherous terrain, before riding a white horse through the dark of night and, of course, finishing with a delivery of a Milk Tray box - all because the lady loves.

Ever had an idea for an ad that you dream of making real? Some lucky New Yorkers have been contributing their own ad concepts for a fun 'streetsourcing' campaign for Asus.

Two improv artists asked members of the public to come up with their own quirky ideas, which were then combined into what the campaign describes as 'the best ad ever'.

The ad, called 'The Alien and The Dinosaur', includes a dinosaur chase on a tropical beach and an alien at a house party - sadly someone's idea of cats that turn into men didn't make the cut.

Promoting the launch of the Asus ZenFone, the ad is designed to show that the phone can ‘empower people to do anything they want’.
