9. Tango Pipes

Tango pipes commercials were simply famous because of their bizarre nature. These banned commercials started to run on air from the tear1991 to 1997 when they were banned from broadcasting. The commercials are mostly remembered for an orange man walking almost-naked. This man used to slap people as supped tango. The ads are as well remembered for a man in a dodgy suit and used to scream in the ear of a woman.

In an attempt to redeem themselves from the list of banned commercials, Tango tried to redeem their ads in 2004 by introducing ads featuring a young man wrapped in a carpet of oranges rolling down the hill before hitting a tree and finally hitting concrete pipes making the fruits to explode. However, their efforts were futile as the Advertising Standards Agency insisted on the ban.
