Channel 4 featured an advert where girls faced morphed one into another.Conceptually it was based on Godley and Creme's 1985 video Cry, but the accompanying song was different and included a line along the lines of "When girls stand together". Advert didn''t run for long and was circa 1985/1986. Does anyone remember this, and if so can they name the song and the product advertised - think it is likely to be some hair or make up product of some sort, or possibly an alcoholic drink. Please let this memory not be a figment of my imagination - as extensive internet /youtube searches have unearthed nothing!

"When Girls Get Together" by The Beach Boys. Recorded in 1969 but not officially released until 1980's 'Keepin' The Summer Alive' album.

Here's the youtube link to that fabulous short-lived TV ad with a most underrated song in The Beach Boys cannon:
