International would be fair. If someone hasn't seen a commercial because they don't live in the country it was shown in than they don't have to vote for it.

There's a lot of manipulation going on, but of car parts.  tongue
SFX? Get's my vote.

I like the bourjous paris advert. The chick is HOT. Stretch those eyelashes bebe!!!

Plus when she's lying on the bed, you can see right up her skirt. oh bebe!!! - oh how shallow of me... wait, no... let me rephrase... - oh how typically male chauvanist pig of me *perv*  laff

Also, the honda advert with the car parts is fantastic.

Another favourite is the Ikea advert depicting the story of an abandoned lamp... hillarious.

I like that "Barky the Dog" commercial even if it's not very funny.  It makes me smile.  Also I like that little fish thingy in that AOL phone call commercial.  The list goes on...

Wow, there are so many commercials that I like yet so many that I hate.

Heh, I agree. The first one("someone should put up a sign, for the water show. Can anyone tell me where the water show is?" ) was too short. I'm glad they made an expanded version of that commercial.

Sexiest ads: Those Veet ads for women's shaving......... stuff (not sure what it was, wasn't paying attention to the product).

Best stunts ad: BBC One Rushour ad with parkour (French stunt-sport) guy jumping over rooftops and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Plus there's a naked woman in it playing a piano.
