So what's your favorite commercial? Can be anything really as long as you like it.
Mine is either the Pepsi Next ad or the E-Trade commercials. I laughed so hard the first time I saw them.

I've had quite a lot of favourite adverts over the years and I'm not sure what my favourite of all time would be. However this was a fairly recent one which I always like:



Also the majority of Red Bull adverts. This is a recent one which I love, and there have been others done in a similar way.

I love this advert, I don't quite know why, but it's great. Probably because Miranda is talking
I also love the EDF Energy adverts with the cute dancing orange blob.

The adverts mentioned in Razor Leaf's post are also good.

Probably a toss-up between Discover Card's "USA Prime Credit/Peggy" commercials and the ads by former local attorney Jim "The Hammer" Shapiro (because that guy was completely insane).

Also any ad featuring "The great American road... belongs to Buick!" at the end (this was the late 1980's).

I feckin hate commercials most of the time, but there is this one that's pretty funny. There's a guy who doesn't have his contacts or glasses or some shiz and his wife is like, "Look with your special eyes" and he's like "My brand!" it's hard to explain but I found strangely hilarious

Let's dig up the YouTube video for it...

Let's try and add at least some kind of discussion, as opposed to 'THIS IS MY FAVOURITE COMMERCIAL!!!!!' and embedding a YouTube clip. You guys are better than that.

Indeed, my favourite advert of the last couple of years is this one for Anchor butter. I'm pretty sure I've wrote about it before, but I just love the way that the cows seem to be enjoying themselves, I love the editing, I love not only the accompanying choice of song 'Paradise City' by Guns 'n' Roses but also its bluegrass instrumentation. And every time I see it on TV, it makes me smile. So there's that. Have a look below:

I like those car commercials with the hamsters. Although after watching them a zillion times, I'm still not sure what company it is. Kia maybe?

That one commercial with the squealing pig and the pinwheels. I can't remember what it's for, is it Geico?



Yup, Geico. Omg though this commercial. I just about died the first time I saw it. It's absolutely ridiculous and I love it <3 It's probably considered juvenile but I still giggle at it like a five-year-old whoops.

I love all of the Direct TV commercials especially the one where he says don't drive into a pizzaria that makes great baked ziti

I love the ones for All State where the guy pretends to be road hazards, like pretending to be a teenage girl who texts and drives and when he pretends to be the hot jogger who distracts the teen boy who is driving.

There are currently two commercials that I get excited about when they come on.

First there's the new iPod commercial from Apple with the bouncing iPods in a variety of colors. Mixed in with "Yeah, Yeah" by Willy Moon it makes me just want to dance along. Actually, I did once. Starting at the 0:24 mark is my favorite piece of it. It looks like an iPod break dancing. I love it.



Then there's the Prius Family commercial by Toyota. The big reason I like this commercial is mostly for the song they play. It's so darn catchy! I also really enjoy the visuals of of it too. You can bet your dollar's worth that if I were to ever get a Prius for myself, I'd be humming in it.
