Favorite Commercials

I searched and didnt find another topic on this, so...
What is the best commercial?

I always like the Lime Coke ad where mess up the song to sing "Put the Lime in the Coke you nut..." because it was so catchy.
Same with the Pepsi commercial where Spartacus lost his lunch bag with a Pepsi in it.

Does anyone know the song in the Sony commercial with the bouncy balls?

The Starburst commercial where the guy's candy talks him into p*ssing off his friends.

The Skittles commercial with the guy with the prehensile beard makes me alternately cringe and laugh.

No idea who the commercial is for - credit card company I think maybe - but it shows this poor guy going through all the voice phone commands to verify who is on his way to work on a commuter train like asking him his pets name - Fluffy he says - to finally asking what his secret password is to which his reply "Big Boy", but is not loud enough and he has to yell it in his cell phone "BIG BOY!" so the whole train car can hear him.

Those commercials are just funny because of that guy's delivery on all of them. They're great.

I really like the Snickers commercial where he has the Snickers on his head because he's bald.

There are new VW commercials that I like. The ones with the little monster thing that tells the guys what to do.

Most people I know love this. Simple but catchy. Don't know if it was available in the US.

Yep, it is here.

My favorite commercials are the Superbowl ads for Monster.com. They are the ones where the guy works with all the monkeys. I especially like the last one they showed where the guy says into the phone, "I work with a bunch of monkeys," and they switch over to a woman who is on the other end of the line and she says, "Oh yeah, I work with a bunch of jackasses," and they pan out to show a bunch of donkeys in the office.

Just great commercials...

Oh, and the Guiness commercials with two guys who always say, "Brilliant!"

I liked the Quizno's commercials with what I think were hamsters singing horribly at the top of their lungs, "WE LOVE THE SUBS, CUZ THEY ARE GOOD TO US!"

I also liked the potato chip commercial (Lays I think) in which Mark Messier comes over to his neighbor's appartment and steals his chips. I don't know, I just thought that was pretty funny.

I think it's Delissio pizza commercials with the pizza delivery guy and the sexy woman in lingerie. They eat pizza together then this teenage guy comes along and catches them then walks away saying,"No wonder I don't have any friends".

The subway commercial displaying their tuna sub looked like someone took a barf on a foot long roll on top of some month old dried up vegetables after just drinking a whole bottle of pepto bismol.

There's an ad for a local credit union a buddy of mine pointed out tonite... during a flurry of shots of people living life to the fullest, there's a shot of an old couple in a hot tub... and I swear it looks like she's giving him a hand job.

Back in 1994 I started recording a video tape of nothing but commericals and sniplets of TV shows and sporting events. It took me 6 years to fill it out as I recorded at radom intervals. The original America Online commercials are hysterical now by todays standards because they had to explain how their computer data base could simplify your time management "and still make it to the game."

Yep. It's a cover by José Gonzáles doing The Knifes song Heartbeats.

Born in Sweden, parents from Argentina.

I'm a sucker for puppies, so I love the K9 Advantix commercial with the little lab pup at summer camp. It's so darned cute!

We had one here last winter for a snowmobile (can't remember which one) where the two guys are riding in the woods and get off to visit a nearby tree...all of a sudden you hear the snowmobiles taking off and you see two moose driving them. The guys stands there shaking his fist and says, "DEAD MOOSE!" at the top of his lungs. Cracks me up when I see it.

I also love the two commercials that run here for Hockeytown Authentics with Kris Draper and Stevie Yzerman...Classic!

The new A&P commercial with the guy speaking French gibberish in a terrible English accent. The subtitles talk about the store and how much they love making bread, etc. But the guy is saying stuff like...

"Ou est Dave, Dave est dans le salle de bain!"
"Je travail dans le discothetque"
"Jus de framboise!"
"MMMMM...bibliothetque!"

Kills me every time.
