I'm not so bright so please explain why there are lemons. Maybe this is a european thing? I want to like this ad because it seems simple. What does it mean?

I thought it looked old but still works to this day.

I take it "lemons" is another term the UK uses for a woman's chest?

You have to hate advertising in order to truly love it.

Really? I've not heard that. A lemon could be a girl (Rhyming slang, Lemon curd = bird) or a bloke (Lemon squeezer = geezer), but not a "juicy chested woman"

But 1/2 lemons are sort of breast shaped so it's a visual pun.

And we have lemon juice and sugar on pancakes, on pancake day. So it works.

Oh, and pancakes aren't really a term to describe flat chested women, but there is a common phrase "Flat as a pancake" that can be applied to anything, erm, well, flat!

Good idea, but I don't really like the art direction.
