There is a British KitKat chocolate bar TV commercial that predates Good Omens, and which involves an angel and a devil who are just starting their respective coffee breaks. Both exit from separate elevators, the angel accompanied by several pure-white animals, while the devil turns back into his elevator and screams, in a British accent, “Shut up!” to whatever demons are causing a ruckus behind him. 
If you are now thinking that this is an extremely unlikely, farfetched annotation – well, so did I, until Terry Pratchett himself gave us the following piece of information (when some folks were having further discussions on how old this ad exactly was): 
“I’m pretty sure [this ad] started about the same time as Good Omens, because: 
One night I was sitting there typing away when I looked up and there the angel and the devil were, having a teabreak (it’s not really a particularly Good Omens idea, but I know why people like it…) And I thought, hey, great… 
And about half an hour later there was an ad (some UK viewers might remember it) for an insurance company which showed a businessman with wide angel wings walking down the street… 
And then, just when I was doing the bit where Crowley muses that people are much better than demons at thinking up horrible things to do to one another, I switched on the radio; there was a performance of The Tempest, and someone said “Hell is empty and all the devils are here”. It was a weird evening, really.“
