    I generally ignore/dislike most ads, but there are a few I don't get tired of. Current ones I like are the wordings on backs Snickers wrappers and the Old Spice ads directed by Tim & Eric. Any others come to mind?
  2. The Volkswagen, "Un-pimp Your Ride" ads come to mind. Oh snap!
  3. V DUB in da' HOOOUUUUSSE!

  5. The "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job, Guys?"
    I haven't seen their show, but it looks funny. That would explain why the old spice commercials are so hilarious. I'm on a horse
  6. I love the string of Jack in the Box commercials we've been getting.
  7. The show sucks imo, but the commercials are hilarious... wierd.

    I have been searching for a clip of this, with no luck--but one of my fave commercials ever was an old one for Pepto Bismol in the UK.

    There are two fishermen in a very small boat, lost far out at sea, with no sail or motor. Each is sitting at opposite ends of the dinghy, just looking at each other. The sun sets, the sun rises, they're still sitting there bobbing in the ocean. Again the sun sets, the sun rises, and they're still sitting there. The sun sets, then rises again, and now only one of them is there in the boat.

    Calm, deep announcer voice: "Pepto Bismol--for when you've eaten something you shouldn't have."
  13. I liked the Miller High Life Man commercials from the late 90's...here's a link to a bunch of them end-to-end:


    I really like the 3rd one: "...potato salad, egg salad, macaroni salad...otherwise, NO SALAD."

    My all-time fave starts at 8:30 into the set....

    I love the ESPN "SportsCenter" promos, even though technically they're not ads. They've been consistently great for years!
  18. The Energizer battery commercials before they started with the stupid drumming rabbit. Featuring Jacko, the manic Aussie. "Oi!!!"
  19. UnsungZeros

    UnsungZeros The only winning move is not to play.

    I get a kick out of the Castrol motor oil sludge ads.
