Sort of a counterpoint to this thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=243365).

Pretty self-explanatory, really: the world is inundated with advertisements and commercial messages, what are some of your favourites? Be it TV, radio, magazines, billboards, the Internet or some other wackadoo way that advertising enters into our brain, only a small minority of them are actually good in their own right!

My favourite one is a TV advert for Anchor spreadable butter. I was planning on putting a YouTube embed of the advert in question, but my attempts at doing so proved less than fruitful. (If someone could tell me how to do it, I'd be ridonkulously grateful.) So, here's a link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rF11mVnBSmo

I pretty much love everything about it: the country-style reboot of Paradise City, that the cows seem so happy about everything their doing, the final punchline, and even little things like the grass in the vending machine and the cow waving off the van driver. I always smile when this advert comes on, which is a rarity for me.

So, what about everyone else?

I like the old spice "the man your man could smell like" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owGykVbfgUE), and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URJKn-Iq4ZE) bud light commercial.

minus the asterisk and space, of course.


I'm a big fan of the Old Spice commercials, as well as the Dos Equis (The most interesting man in the world) Actually, most of the alcohol related advertisements are downright hilarious and/or awesome.

Party Poker - Reactions (Indian Ending) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uGv_eCjGPA&feature=related)

Heineken Commercial - Man With Talent (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGKFEDqDTAE)
These two are real funny, but the greatest one has got to be this one:

Delta Lloyd Commercial Booming Car (2006) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhmTSHJ5pZA)
It's a commercial for a Dutch insurance company.

Any and all Old Spice commercials. I also quite like some of the Geico commercials. There is also a billboard near my church with a cool Subway advertisment... there is a bunch of text in a medium shade of gray going on about how the advertisers aren't allowed to say a whole bunch of stuff on a billboard, but spaced throughout the wall of text there are a few words in bold black- "Eat at Subway. It's better."

I like the Geico commercials. I also liked the ones that advertised cereal, especially Cap'n Crunch, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Apple Jacks.
