Rather than necropost, I’m resurrecting it anew: What are your favorite commercials? Frankly, with all the “reality” shows choking the airwaves, sometimes commercials are the breath of life, if they’re funny. And classic commercials are some of the best classics ever. Yeah, this might be dork-sider talk, but check these two out.

This is probably my favorite. There are still so many occasions where it applies.
And just about every parent has had at least one moment where they could relate to this one.

The Sony Bravia is a classic:

And I think this one (about wearing your seatbelt, no less) is great:

And this one I just saw today, people signin' in an airport (which seems like too clever of an idea for a phone company but makes me smile watching it):

That condom ad is classic.
I went to a Wendys while I was over there… I mainly just needed to go to the toilet, but I bought food as well.
It seems that a lot of homeless people use the place to go to the toilet too, waiting for someone to leave it so they can slip in without paying. Fascinating.

I always thought that was digital… It would be so basic and cheap to digitally that it just didn't occur to me that they'd actually use REAL balls o_O

I don't watch normal TV so I can't recall any good ads… :(

That's part of what makes it magical. :] They did a couple of other in the series but none were as good. Fruitopia (I think) did a follow-up one to the bouncy balls which was hilarious, they released a bunch of lemons and limes and stuff in the same location. I'm not sure if that one was digital or not since damage occurred…

How about the Bud commercials? Almost all of them got a laugh out of me.

And no, I'm not talking about the lame ones they made that everyone quoted, I'm referring to the ones that were actually awesome. They have tons of these, and I find them all to be quite amusing. Wish they did more.

This one as well as this other one are some of my other favorites.

I really like that seat belt one; hadn't seen it before. Usually seat belt spots are threatening and this is like poetry.

@blindsk
the ones that were actually awesome.

hahahahaha. “that's in Oklahoma. . .”

An old classic that got banned due to idiot school children.

I always liked this one too, great use of music.

That one is pretty effective.

I like this one too, not for the meaning but it made me chuckle.

Never saw this on TV but funny regardless.

That guy from Survivor is awesome in the Bud ads.

Here's a fave ad I remember from Back when I watched TV enough to remember ads…

I absolutely love the singing at the airport. Can't stop watching clips like these.

This is one of my fav: Instant noodle ad

That…was strangely amusing.

I can't help but wonder what other uses she has for that pet of hers. It's a sick thought, I know. ;)

I thought they was the idea of the commercial… maybe I AM just sick.

Did want to comment on the lynx one because it reminded me of this retro:

My favorite service commercial. Sure it's an SNL spoof but filmed at a real naval base showing real naval personnel at work.

There's a lot of talk these days about “manning up”. Even women are telling each other to “man up”. Maybe that's one of the reasons I like this one. No one knows who the man is.

The ambiguity of his responses in that commercials are confusing me! Is this man invisible then?! Is it not even a man, but a master computer controlling our world under the guise of a man?! We might never find out!

There were later ads (much, much, much later), that took that tack with the ad in an obvious way- indicating ladies just use ants as a way to lure poor Rex the Echidna to lick their privates… But it was really pretty shit to be honest.
The charm of the original is implication… while really being very harmless: the brand is Antz-pantz, ants are crawling on her so she calls Rex to deal with them, and that's fine because they're hole-proof undies! ^^

So yeah, the sick thoughts are part of the fun of it, but only when done well.

I have a terribly good memory for commercials. So I'm gonna make a Blip TV show about how much I love commercials!

Anyway:

Dunno how many ads released this year followed this example…

I friggin' wanted this so bad. It took ten years for me to figure out why adults found it so funny.


Sad thing is there's so many I loved, still remember and can't find.
It's why I was so pissed at my dad for throwing out old VHS tapes.


*edit* HOLY SHIT I FOUND ONE!

Why associate it with vore, though you sick gits!

I am NOT pleased!

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!
