THANK YOU!! The folks here at the office are trying to say these are better than the Bruce Campbell ones, and I so wanted to backhand them for their blasphemy!

How about that car commercials where the man and the woman are packing a car for some kind of trip... from their third floor apartment?  The guy is throwing stuff out the window and it all bounces perfectly into the back of their hatchback car.  It all looks so genuine, even though those kinds of feats would be impossible in real life.

That would be the new Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback seen here: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/syrfgDaK72k&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/syrfgDaK72k&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;</a>

It's only half true. They are dropping things off the balcony onto an angled trampoline, but once they reach the car (that is not really there) the computer takes over and "lands" the objects into the back of the car. A very well done effect. Looks pretty real.

I'm loving the Ally Bank commercials. Funny circumstances and great acting, especially the reactions from the kids!

I just saw this last night. Any ad that can make Amtrak almost seem like a viable commuting alternative is brilliant:

As much as I love Bruce, I have to disagree. Those ads were confusingly abstruse and ultimately too weird (and slow) for their own good. Were they for Old Spice or Bruce Campbell? I like the new ones better.

What makes this commercial even cooler is the fact that only 1% of it was CGI: (20 minutes long):

And yes, that is one of the guys from The Screen Savers. I wondered what happened to him.

Leo!  Do you think he keeps in touch with Kevin Pereira?

This makes me laugh, because I think there should be commercials solely for the purpose of advertising Bruce Campbell.

Since I feel I must weigh in on the Old Spice matter, I vote for the Bruce commercials.  I love the guy on the horse stuff, but Bruce in the round room is just classic.  I rarely let a commercial sway my buying choices, but the Bruce commercials almost made me actually want to buy some Old Spice.

I use a number of Old Spice products. Hmm... Am I the man your man could smell like?

Yeah Old Spice was something my dad used (I should point out my father was 50 when I was born).
