And hey, you might even get the cops on your tail or get some ransom money out of it!!
*nods and agrees with Jermy*

I like the Cahoot commercial where the 2 cops are chasing the purse snatcher and the cuff him but then he gets up and realises they cuffed themselves together.
Then the guy runs off and the cop with the handbag hits the other cop with it.

Only 3 commercials that are on my favorite list:
The Outpost.com (now banned) Commercial where they shot gerbils out of the cannon.

The 1995 Nike Commercial with the one man wave.

and the new one for miller lite, the domino effect with people.

There was an elictricty commercial that was actually interesting and funny. A man's set up this big line of dominoes going around his house curving, looping and generally looking cool. He gets out a video camera, turns it on, then flicks the edge of the dominoe trail. The whole thing starts to move, and then the lights turn off and you hear a whimper.

I still don't know what farfagnuven means, but that's all they ever said in thos VW commercails, so that is an honorary mention.  Also, the Levis commercial where the guy in ER starts to sing "Tainted love"

You just answered your own question.

Anyone remember those great IKEA commercials? "Many of you feel bad for this lamp. That is because you crazy. It has no feelings. And the new one is much better."

Also, that new car commercial that's paraphrased in my siggy.

How about LEAST favourite commercial then? I think mine can be summed up with one jingle:

"Currys, always cutting prices" *snip snip*

Those insurance claims ads, they're so boring.
Put some ninja puddings in and I'd watch 'em!!

One of my absolute favourite ads:
A guy and a girl are passionately kissing and saying goodbye to friends while leaving a club, they get a taxi and resume kissing.
Then the guy gets a text message saying "She's a man!"
So the guy stops the taxi driver and gets out and the girl's pissed off so she goes on home.

So the guy is walking away thinking he dodged a bullet there.
Then he gets another text message saying: "Just kidding!"

I saw an advert for Coca-Cola the other day, and it reminded me of those ones from the 70s with the person singing "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing". It had this one woman just walking and singing down the street giving out cokes to everyone, it was a really nice advert  smile

Almost anything with a jingle like that puts me off it, they're so awful! And the Currys advert...
I hate Currys and Simpology (Do you speak Micra).

This is an Aussie ad, so most of you guys won't recognise it  tongue but I thought it was pretty clever.

It's an ad for free range chicken (ie, the chooks are allowed to run around instead of being in cages). It was on a billboard, and most of the space was taken up with a picture of a chicken walking across a country road. The caption read: "Because it could."

Isn't that clever?  smile

The "Mint" credit card advert in the UK, the one with the office worker who has had a "bad experience with mints"

And the advert for the weekly mens mag zoo in which a women tried using a hammer drill and promptly tears the wall up.

Both funny as hell!

An Ikea add I saw late one night...

Two kids run screaming up to their father:
"Dad! Dad! Take us to Ikea!"
But foolish father trips over and bends one of his legs 180 out of alignment.
Kids: :"Awww"
A monkey with a tape player wonders in, sets the player down, and turns it on. Happy, upbeat music starts playing... the Stand-in Dad themesong!
The kids look amazed.
Then a large black man with a Stand-in Dad t-shirt comes in and gleefully shouts: "I will take you to Ikea!"
Kids: "Yay!!"
The Stand-in Dad and the Kids leave, and the Kids actual dad remains on the floor with his grotesque injury. Greatest ad ever.

On the other end of the scale, that absolutely vile Sultana Bran ad with the kids singing "I heard on the grapevine" with hideously annoying new lyrics. Ugh.

That was one of their best ones.

They have an ad archive on their site.
Couldn't find that one though.  frown

One of my friends showed me this independent film called Rejected, it was a bunch of commercials and other little short films that this guy did for companies that got rejected for obvious reasons. My favorite commercial in that(I think it was for cereal) was:

"Do you want to see a movie?"
"I'm feeling fat and sassy"
*Blood pours out of the first guy's eye while he screams for about 20 seconds*

I wish that actually did make it on TV. But I must say, I like those Quizno's sub commercials with the weird little guitar playing gerbil things. Those commercials own, even if there isn't a Quizno's anywhere near here.

I know the clip you're talking about Lampy... isn't it the one that also has the great line "My spoon is too big"... pure genius, in a fucked up sort of way.

I'm glad someone else remembers Water in Majorca, again pure brilliance. And while we're on the subject, there are two great adverts for two companies whose commercials had the high chance of being really irritating. One was a Sprite commercial which showed these street basketball players talking about how great Sprite is in their usual ghetto rubbish speak, before breaking into posh voices and talking about how they can't read this advert and they all have degrees in Shakespeare. I guess you had to be there.

Another was a McDonalds advert advertising their chinese range of meals, it mocked curry house adverts from the 70s complete with poor quality video, obvious time skips, and cutting off the advert short at the end. Funny stuff.

anything by ikea, orbit or fido.  the phone commercial about the guy stealing the socks, and that ad for a cleaning product where you think the moms in jail, but then you see she is in the shower are good too.
P. S. for you perverts out there, YES she has her cloths on.   roll eyes

I love the Mini advert with the guy who has to eat his hat and the other one with the two naked guys and a fish. Weird yet very funny stuff.

I also like the advert for Ikea where all the furniture changes and that really funky song is playing.

Beer ads are usually the best. A good one I saw recently was a Carling one where a swarm of schmos start playing footy around this town. Many a crunching tackle is comitted on gravel and the end bit with a guy being a goaly under a car measurement bar getting decimated by the swarm and a goal being scored was classic.

I don't watch a whole lot of TV anymore, but I like Stephen Colbert's Goodwrench commercials and an ad for the "Yahoo!" search engine that features Al Franken and Ben Stein.

Kicked your ass.

There's this great commercial for the local cable/ISP...this one is focused on TV. The scene is someone's front door, and you see a newspaper get thrown at the door. Then the announcer says "There are many ways to advertise" and then you see a giant TV fly through the door breaking it, and then you hear "But none have the impact of cable TV". I was laughing my ass off.

I have decided that my all time favourite advert is the Honda one with all the objects set up so that each one sets off the next. You know the one I mean. It is both incredible to watch and draws your attention because there is no music or anything. It just all happens, and then a guy says "isn't it great when things just... work?" Fantastic. Apparently it took months to set it up and get it to work though!
