Back in my day.

TikTok: “Entertainment Through the Ages” - 60s

Ant and Dec bring their customary charm to this irreverent ad for TikTok. The micro-movie social media platform sends the perennial cheeky chappies on a journey through time and space, stopping off to sample whatever was considered peak entertainment at the time. From prehistoric knock-knock jokes to Sixties cartoons, the pair have plenty of content to sift through.

Director Alex Boutell packs a lot into 60" here, with the seasoned stars bringing plenty of value to dragged-up theatre performances, lute concerts for Roman emperors, and a well-executed take on silent film la Buster Keaton. It makes the final return to the present all the more impressive, and may inspire wannabe entertainers to try their hand at going, erm, viral..
