    Commercials seem to suck a lot less lately.

    The capital one commercials are funny as hell. Especially the Viking ones... David Spade's are pretty good too.. Although, the fat guy that has trouble with NO! makes them better.

    Del Taco commercials are great...

    Jack in the Box commercials are the greatest thing since sliced bread...

    Carls Jr... hell yes. "Chicken, juggle."

    and my personal favorite...


    the EPT pregnancy test commercial where the lady says "There is such thing as being a little bit pregnant." Thats beautiful.
     
  2. I like the KY jelly commercial ........ :D
    The look that fellow gets on his face........... :D

    Geico commercials are great (especially bringing back Tony Little!), but I can't stand some commercials. There are a couple of companies that do horrible voice overs, a lady in front of a swirling tornado who appears as if she's shouting but is "using" an indoor level. I think it was for a loan company or some drug.
     
  7. Geico "Tiny House" commercial.... they nailed that one. It was so well done I heard friends of the actor that played the guy in the ad thought it was a real live reality show and told him he was crazy for doing a show like that, something along those lines....

    YOU CAN DO IT!

  11. i like that one about tag body spray, where you see these female wrestlers going at it, and then one of them just leaps on this guy in the audience out of nowhere.

    i like the "bob" commercials too. "and there's also a happy wife back in the clubhouse" haha the smiles on his face are so corny, they're worse than bass face.

    I also think the little symptom warnings they try to tag on to the end of medicine commercials is funny. sometimes the symptoms are worse than whatever they're trying to cure in the first place (symptoms may include diarrhea, coughing, trouble urinating, sinus pressure, etc). i especially like the one "if your erection lasts over 4 hours, please see a doctor"

    What do you think of this one:

    This is one of the best ads i've ever seen - its for one of our fairly average local brews (kinda like Miller or Bud). There is not adult content or anything so its cool for kids.
