Commercials we LOVE
« on: October 22, 2007, 01:32:09 PM »
In order to keep a balanced universe, here's a thread for those commercials that entertain us or make us laugh.

I'm a pretty big fan of clever beer commercials.  This Bud Light one is a current favorite of mine.

Every day of my life I find the wisest and best to fix our attention on the Good and the Beautiful. If you just take the time to look at it.

This new Arby's commercial with the dancing chimps kicks ass!!!

Still wouldn't eat there if you paid me...



Though this is the Canadian version, it's essentially the same as the American version.

In general, I do not like "psych out" commercials where you think it is a commercial about X, but it turns out to be a commercial about Y. In addition, I am not a huge fan of Geico commercials. However, this one has always been a well-executed classic in my opinion:

Here's the only Geico one I like.  We are in a deer heavy area and I had a deer almost run into me while walking one night so I laughed pretty hard when I saw this.

Superbly executed commercial. I was taken in by its authenticity as well. Can you imagine how horrid it would be to live in that house for an entire year?? I personally would die if I had that bed to sleep on.

Seriously. The first time I saw it, my reaction was "You have GOT to be kidding me! ... ... oh... hahahah!!!"

I'm 6' 2"... looking at that bed terrified me. My feet hang off the end of normal beds, a fact that causes me constant discomfort. Going to my in-laws' house is pure torture, because their shitty spare room bed is roughly 5 feet long. At home, we had to buy a sleigh bed just so my feet would have somewhere to hang that wasn't pressed against the footboard. Now,  although I'm still pretty uncomfortable, I at least have a nice little nook to tuck my feet into. ;)

Gotta love the Messin' with Sasquatch ones. A lot of the ones we see on TV have internet-only versions, apparently.

The first one is clever. The second one I would only rate as "meh."

This Nike one is pretty entertaining.  I didn't know it was directed by Michael Mann until I looked it up:
