I love that old discovery.com commercial that goes like so:
(Two guys in meteor costumes floating on fish wire)
M1: Hello meteor
M2: Hello meteor
M1: Have you heard about the new website, discovery.com?
M2: Of course, meteor. I use it to grow my garden, get rid of my dandfriff, and clean my dog.
M1: Did you know, that most meteors burn up in earth's atmosphere?
(Earth comes up from the distance and gets closer and closer....Then suddenly the guys burst into flames)
M1: Aaaagghhhh! The atmosphere.
M2: Aaaaaghhh! The atmosphere....aghhhhh!
M1: oooooohhhhh!

I like that Snickers ad where the football coach is trying to compensate for his bad team with prayer, so he calls in a priest... and a rabbi... and a shaman... and a witch-doctor...

I love this commercial on Norwegian TV:
A guy in his 40s and a novice is sitting in the control room of what appears to be a power plant or something. Suddenly, the guy has to go to the men's room, and tells the novice to keep an eye on the monitors for a minute.
Five seconds lates, a red button starts to blink with that "danger, danger"-sound to it, and after some hesitation, the kid presses the blinking button only to find that 5 NEW buttons start to blink with 5 more alert sounds and bells.

The ad is for an insurance company, listing which types of insurances could come in handy if you find yourself in this situation..
Liability... injury at work... the list goes on  smile

There was one old advert I quite liked, can't remember who or what it was for, but it featured some big bear and lots of ants.

Bear sits down, Ant comes along and notices Bear is in way
Ant: (very high pitched) Excuse me! Excuse me!...Excuse me?
Bear thinks he hears something but doesn't see Ant.
Ant sighs and walks back off, later to turn up with another ant
Ants: Excuse me?
Again Bear doesn't see them.
Ants walk off and come back with Group.
Group: EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME!
Bear hears this and looks around, but still doesn't see them.
Group leaves and comes back with Army of ants
Army marches up to Bear, who still hasn't seen anything and is looking very puzzled.
Army: GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!!!
Bear shoots over the horizon, Army marches on. Bear's head appears above the horizon shocked.

Haha. Definitely the "Can you hear me now? Good" guy. The Sprint guy sucks, but at least he doesn't say the exact same thing over and over again. Plus he looks kind of depressed, like he doesn't want to be doing those crappy commercials. The Verizon guy hides his depression with a phoney smile every time he says "good!". What a cheap hollywood phoney.

I like the Quizno's commercials where a man rigs focus tests on subjects so that they always choose the untoasted sub. Some are better than others, though.

Those Quizno's commericals are great. On a similar topic, those Conan O'Brien commericals with the chimp hitting the buzzer whenever Conan is on are also great and worth of mention.

My current favorite commercial is the one where two guys drive up in a murcielago next to a highway patrol car. The guy in the passenger seat jumps out, runs up to the speed limit sign that reads "Speed limit 65". He paints  one next to the 65 with spray paint so it reads "165". He stumbles back in and they drive off. The cops look at eachother and chase them...(It's an ad for "Need for Speed: Hot pursuit 2" )
But there are three different versions of that...but that one is my favorite

My faves are the Peter Kay 'John Smiths' Bitter ad's:

The British Olympic Diver ("Running Bomb" )
The soccer keepy-uppies ("have it" )

and the best one, the night out at a curry house when his little girl calls from home: "It's not the monsters you need to be worried about, it's the burglers and murderers" )

On the public access channel, I find some Indian food commericals cheesy and funny. But I guess that's like saying Homer finds Bollywood films funny cuz of the way the ppl dress.

Those commercials advertising the benefits of oil heat are way underrated. I never hear anyone talk about them, but I think they're hilarious. Especially the one(I haven't seen it in a long while, but stay with me) where the dad lectures his son.

Dad: Did you steam clean your bedroom walls?
Son: Yeah.
Dad: Did you shampoo the rug?
Son: Yeah Dad.
Dad: Did you boil your change collection?
Son: *looks off to the side*
Dad: Son, how many times have we been through this? Always boil your change collection.

I just saw a Kotex commercial that advertises the product as being "More secure than an e-mail password." I ran out and bought 12 cans!

There was an article in the paper. It cost a few million to do, 2 cars and it was all done for real. I haven't read the article yet, but i'm going to when my mum's finished.

*Big Bill starts to suck in air*

Hey! I just ordered it. Make sure you scroll down, and click the 3 checkboxes saying phone, e-mail, post, or you'll get spam.

Yup, done that.  smile

Apparently it took around 30 takes to get the thing to work, as it had to be done in one camera move.  There are no edits.

I stand corrected, having asked Dadbot who was told it was either 60 or 600 takes.  So, you're probably right.

ok right now, i like 2 commercials...

1. Bourjois Paris - Eyelash stretching thing.
cuz... the woman in it is a hottie. and when she turns over on the bed you can see her sweet backside...

2. Umbro Solaire - Tanning lotion with bottle head that can reach all places. It's the advert that says "no streaks". Again, the woman is hot.

Did I already mention the spot about those freaky little kids that show off with their mums? Like "My mum has..." and try to top each other and one lass smiles and says "My mum loves me" (It's a German spot, they say "Meine Mutter hat..." and "Meine Mutter hat mich lieb" )

There's this one at the moment in which these adults have just had a drink and then they start to sing We Will Rock You by Queen but in a child's voice.

TV watchdogs have had loads of complaints about that car advert "Le Derriere", because of the repetitive use of "ass" in it (the music to it is that "Shaking that ass..." one)...

I don't see how ass is offensive.

I kinda like that L'evian advert, but i'd prefer slightly less squeaky voices.

Is that the one where they sing "We will rock you"?
I hate it.
It 's one of those songs I hate because they 're catchy and everybody always sings along with them, like the mindless drones that they really are.
I also hate children's singing. They should all STFU.


I do like the Lays advert for Heinz ketchup flavoured crisps. Some guy drops a bag of thse crisps on tge floor. The old people both want it.
The old guy makes the old lady fall and laughs at her, but she has his false teeth.
