Hey
Since I went a bit off topic in the Book Giveway thread I thought I"d start it here.
What's your favorite commercial.
Some of my absolute favs. No particular order. Plus I have to find the URL for the others.
- Budweiser - Sin and SentimentalitySee here
- Bear Fight - John West Salmon. See here
- Aiwa Stereos - See here
Man I'm going to go watch some more now and then spam this thread.
Personally I find some commercials are better than most TV shows. If you want to see some awesome classics check here.

My personal favorite was the Snickers commercial that was out during the election. The "I invented pants" line was a true classic.

yeah i really loved that snickers ad. at the time you could go to their website and watch it, i went and saw it there so many times and laughed each time.
i also loved the short-run levi's commercial. i think it was for chords. this guy's walking along in the bush and his pants are making this swish swish sound, and a badger hears and thinks it's another badger it can mate with or something. so it starts following and making squeeking noises. the only sound in the whole ad is
swish swish... squeek squeek... swish swish swish...squeek squeek squeek, and so on, as this guy is running from a pursuing badger. it's hilarious! i don't know why!! LOL
