There are a lot of really stupid commericals out there, but every once in a while a good one comes along. So what is your favorite commercial?

If there's a link, please post it so we can enjoy it too! :)

Here's mine: its a Jetta commercial from a couple of years ago. It's like a 30 sec. movie and I really like the song.

I like the new Snickers commercial where the guy throws the bar into the fire, nothing happens, and he runs out screaming like a girl. I also like an old Heineken commercial when they were promoting the keg cans and it showed a guy sitting on a porch, asking for a beer, and a huge keg was tossed to him, and he flew off the chair and off the porch. It was awesome, I would love to see those commercials again because they're so damned funny to me.

The only car commercials that I can think of are those dumb "Zoom zoom" ones, the one where the guy tackles the shopping cart so it won't hit the car, and an old one where the song goes "Da, da, da" the whole time. The "Da da da" one came out when I was in 6th grade because my social studies teacher always sang that stupid song.

Right now there's a commercial in which a guy is walking his dog through a park and the dog finds someone's butt laying on the ground. Can't remember what product it's for, but it cracks me up every time I see it.

Has anyone seen the Dr. Pepper "Anything For Love" commercial? Set to the Meat Loaf song, we see a guy happily buying tampons, folding underwear, etc for his girlfriend. When she tries to take his Dr Pepper though, he flips out and goes running down the street, because he'd "do anything for love, but he won't do that."

It doesn't sound that funny, but if you ever see it I guarantee you'll crack up :)

To me, the funny commercials don't compare to those of the 1970s. With the exception of some good stuff on Super Bowl Sunday, and some Mike's Hard Lemonade commercials a few years back, nothing beats the Miller Lite stuff of old and some other beer and baseball-related commercials from that time and earlier.

I have soe new favorites. I know they probably are annoying to most, but the ones with David Spade for Capital One, the "just say no" guy, are hilarious to me.

I also like the James Earl Jones one where he keeps making his voice higher because he thinks the director is talking to him, but finally we see he is talking to the guy with the sign behind JEJ. I laugh everytime I see that.

Bud salutes: Real Men of genius and Real American Heroes.Those are tremendous.

My favorite ran in the mid- to late-'90s, for Miller Lite. Two guys in a bar get transported into a 1970s Chinese chop-socky kung fu movie and save a couple of damsels in distress by defeating an evil warlord in a game of Paper Football. The ad's impersonation of those kung fu movies was spot-on.

Honorable mention: 2 adidas ads in the late 1990s with David Cone, one with the ANSKY guys trying to protect his pitching arm (and one of them eventually having to wipe his butt for him in the toilet!) and the "El Duque Dance" one where Cone ends up in an awkward men's room encounter with a weird trisexual-looking guy.

The other dude comes in and asks them what the hell they're doing, where the orders are, where one of their colleagues is, etc. They get all the info to him, switch the boombox on and start dancing again. "Ooooo baby baby!"

Gets me everytime.

Yeah, that was the ending of it.

It was some union clothing company I think. They said all you had to do was bring in your union card.

So the guy off-camera said to an on-camera guy named "Jerry", "What's the story, Jerry?"

So Jerry would say that school teachers and other union folks could bring in their cards and get discounted apparel. Then when the off-camera guy wanted more info, he'd say, "Is that the story, Jerry?"

Then Jerry would break into his trademarked, "That's the STORRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!".

There are a couple that I've seen lately that I've actually laughed out loud at...

1) the cell phone one where the guy goes up to his "network" and tells them he's switching and the "network" says why? He says the new network has video and all this cool stuff... then the "network" guy goes, we've got video too! and one of his "network" friends behind him starts dancing, at which point the customer goes "stop...... you're embarassing yourself" :lol:

2) The talking geico lizard w/ the australian accent

3) the Staples commercial where the guy has the easy find button and presses it to find another easy button despite his coworker's warning that it'll tear a hole in the universe... then ends up in the closet :lol:

It was only one fat guy, if I recall.;) (The N, I think.)

That was actually my least-favorite of the ANSKY series. My favorite was the one where they kick a bunch of fans out of the ballpark and you see them sitting on the corner with "B-O-S-T-O-N" across their chests. I only saw it once, though.:(

"Cone, rest your arm" and "I don't want to be the K anymore" were damn funny, as well.:lol:

I missed the Boston one. You mean the Yankee fans threw out the Beantowners? :gulp::D

The only "Coney" commercial I remember is when his Mom's dog bit his hand, sooooooooo ... one of the guys had to "help" him in using the urinal. Crude "potty" humor, but definitely unforgettable.

You guys nailed it with "D-Caf" and also the Sprint commercials with "Push it"

...And of course the best commercials of all time... the Adidas Yankees commercials (esp. when Sojo says to David Cone "Hey Coney, why don't you have a dance?") and as a South Asian person I love the one where the Desi cab driver drops the Atlanta fan off and this transvestite prostitute says to him "oh honey you look lost".

Do you guys remember the Gatorade commercial from a couple years ago about the 1970 Super Bowl with the KC Chiefs. It was narrated by Keith Jackson and it had "Time of the Season" by the Zombies and "All Right Now" by Free... I looooved that one; it wasn't FUNNY but it felt like a teeny little 30 second documentary.

The Knicks commercial with John McEnroe that's on MSG now is pretty cool too.

I love the Nike commercials that are really emotional the best because I'm just a big sap ball. Some of them have made me cry. The one where they show Lance Armstrong giving his press conference and the one with the young Tiger Woods are awesome. There were a lot of older ones that were really good too but I can't think of any specific one right now.

I saw one recently that was very funny. I haven't read through the entire thread, and someone else may have already mentioned it. A guy is in his kitchen cooking. He's on the phone with his credit card company, and he's listening to one of those voice menus - "To reach customer service, press 2...." and it goes on and on. The food on the stove starts to burn, and he can't put the phone down (it's a wall phone with a cord) because the menu is continuing - "Press 6,.....press 7.....press 23......press 42"....He keep trying to move the pot off the heat, but can't reach it. He starts throwing things at it. He ends up getting a broom and pushing the pot with it. The broom catches fire, and he grabs the fire extinguisher.

The other dude comes in and asks them what the hell they're doing, where the orders are, where one of their colleagues is, etc. They get all the info to him, switch the boombox on and start dancing again. "Ooooo baby baby!"

Gets me everytime.


The Nextel commercial where the one guy is holding a boombox playing "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa while his two coworkers are gyrating...then the boss walks in on them and is like what the hell is going on and they are like everything's taken care of because we have nextel blah blah blah...then they continue gyrating.

You like the same commercial and your screennames begin with P :eek: :)

I saw one recently that was very funny. I haven't read through the entire thread, and someone else may have already mentioned it. A guy is in his kitchen cooking. He's on the phone with his credit card company, and he's listening to one of those voice menus - "To reach customer service, press 2...." and it goes on and on. The food on the stove starts to burn, and he can't put the phone down (it's a wall phone with a cord) because the menu is continuing - "Press 6,.....press 7.....press 23......press 42"....He keep trying to move the pot off the heat, but can't reach it. He starts throwing things at it. He ends up getting a broom and pushing the pot with it. The broom catches fire, and he grabs the fire extinguisher.
:lol: I just saw that one a little while ago for the first time.

Hahaa I didn't see PP had posted that already.

I love that commercial, it seems that it is played multiple times during NFL broadcasts (guess Nextel is an official sponsor), so not only can I not wait to watch some football on Sunday, I'm ready to see some OOH BAYBEE BAYBAYYY, BUH BAYBEE BAYBAY.


P.S. This site seems to have a lot of links to other sites to look for your fav. commercials

The sports center commercials are funny too.

My favorite SportsCenter commercial of all time is the Y2K test. At the end, Charley Steiner comes up to the camera holding a lantern and screams, "Follow me. Follow me to FREEDOM!"

But I have to mention the Monster.com commercial from the Super Bowl some years back. It's the one with the kids talking about what they want to be when they grow up:
"I want to be overworked and underpaid!"
"I want to be a yes man!"

Two of my current faves.
MC Hammer's rap for the Braves.

BTW, if you havn't checked out Hammer's Blog yet, it's pretty entertaining. He often pontificates on sports (between all the praying).

This Commercial for the Mariners cracks me up.

The rest of the campaign (links on right) is pretty good too.

Has anyone seen the new Gatorade commercial with DJ and a big head with a little body? There are other athletes in it too, but I don't know who they are.

the one with the guy in the shower whose wife is like "which one of my friends do you think is the most attractive?" the look on the dude's face is freakin perfect.

Yao Ming and Yogi for Visa.Yeah, but Yao and Mini Me was da *BOMB*, Baby!!!

Funnier of course, was that Verne Troyer had the bigger notebook. Hmmmmmmmmmm, SB material there? :gulp::O

Nobody beats Mikey. Not the plop-plop-fizz-fizz, not nobody. But a close second would be Jerry Carroll of Crazy Eddie.

The Corona shower girl commercial...:DWhich is the beer commercial where a guy gets some midget inside of a robot who gathers up all the Corona? Then he's ogling the guy's wife, who's in the shower (behind a curtain)?
