What's your fave commercial?
« on: January 21, 2007, 12:07:27 AM »
I was just sitting here watching tv and wondered what folks fave commercial is...It can be past or present or more than one...Mine are...in no order...

1. The Volkswagen Commercial, where dude unpimps dude's auto and he says we just dropped it like it's hot, V-Dub representing Deutchland.

2. The Caveman from the Geico Commercial, the one where he is getting interviewed on a talk show and he says I'm not a 100% in love with your tone right now...I swear I love that so much I even use the line..

3. The Chips Ahoy commercial where they are in the car singing Human League's Don't you want me baby, and slowly gets picked off.

4. Even though I hate Directtv personally, I do like their commercial with the Crew of Star Trek.


Just killing time and boredom, folks.

And of course one of my all-time favorites:

Before Project Runway there was...

The cherry on the cake is that the announcer is speaking English and they subtitle it in English.

This is a great commercial that never aired in the US. My partner is convinced that men who drive corvettes are compensating for physical shortcomings. Hmm... maybe that is why I drive a tiny little MR2... ;D

I don't know that I have a favorite...but there are some I'll watch over and over again without doing my normal channel flip.

The Geico cavemen commercials...the Citibank commercials with the russian guy (very, very, VERY rewarding)...that old Sprint commercial with all the dachshunds...and (oddly) the "freecreditreport.dot.com" commercial with the dude with the red hair...

I've always liked the M&M's commercial. The one where they are rowing the boat. And they break out in a chorus of "Rock the Boat"  I always get a kick out of that !!

Love commercials with animals.   I like Ellen's ads for American Express, with her "working" with all the animals on her show....

Ray, I like the M & M's "Rock the Boat" commercial too.

My current favorite is the one for GEICO with the caveman sitting in the therapist's office.  At the end of the commercial, his cell phone calls and he announces it's his mother, he putting her on speaker.

I get a laugh out of that because I have some friends whose mother still dominates their lives even though they are adults. (Or appear to be adults)

The Geico Caveman commercials are great, especially the one where he lists caveman accomplishments in a sarcastic tone, and the newswoman says, "well I guess someone woke up on the wrong side of the rock."
    Buu my favorite one now is the shrimp commercial for Dairy Queen. That one is just deranged........

I am a freakishly huge fan of old commercials.

This is one for Lambretta scooters from the 1960s.

It's in Italian.  I have no clue what they're saying... but it's catchy as all hell.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLBogthhmjQ

This is a French Pepsi ad from the 1960s.  How it sold Pepsi to French people is beyond me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEEHsVtui2U

This one is for an East German Wartburg.  Why they made commercials when you had one of two choices is beyond me.  It's inherently amusing... in a DDR kind of way.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPfzmlpJcKQ

And one in English for the kiddies.  I'm guessing this is early 60s... it's a Folgers commercial.  See how the woman goes out late at night... risking rape, mugging, and other various unpleasantries to satisfy her man's taste in instant coffee.  It makes me pine for the days before Gloria Steinem.

Well,

 I still like my M&M's commercial. But my new favorite is the"Chips Ahoy" cookie commercial.

There are two cookies sitting in the front seat of the car, and two in the rear seat. There all singing, , "don't you want me, baby" By the Human league, as they are riding down the road, in the convertible car. A big hand comes out of the sky, and snatches them one by one.  :D

I get a kick out of that one!!! Don't you want me baby?, don't you want me ohhhhh,o,o,h,hohh

So many of these commercials, using the older songs.
