Even though there is zero chance I will ever buy one, I love the music in Lincoln car ads...it's so pretty. Kind of sad, or melancholy. I just like it.

I generally really like those "on a spotty network, this is what you hear" commercials (even, quite grudgingly if I'm in the right mood, the one with Tom Brady and Gronk), but with that one I'm distracted by how fucking ugly that shirt she's considering wearing when she thinks it's a regular business dinner is.

And then I get way too realistic, and start wondering why in the world when her ... friend? co-worker? ... seems to have said, "Wear something crazy; it's a costume party," she doesn't ask, "What?  No one mentioned that."  Or even if she for some reason just accepts that, how does discussion of what she should go as not follow, leading the other woman to clear up the confusion?

Basically, this would never actually transpire in real life.  And in many commercials I just go with such scenarios, but with this one I can't get sucked in.

Considering the way she seems to hear/listen, that doesn't surprise me at all.

My foot hurt just watching that. 

I never thought I would ever hear someone called a "wuss" in a commercial.  For giggles I went to their website and searched for wuss, and nothing came up.

Reading that made me instantly nostalgic for '200 Dachshunds'.

Whatever happened to the Sprint guy?

Didn’t Sprint merge with T-Mobile?  I’m pretty sure they didn’t have much use for him afterwards.

Loving the Bud Light Seltzer (?) commercials where someone makes a comment that the lemony taste is 'better than my Grandma's lemonade.'  In both of the commercials I saw, Grandma overheard the comment and in one commercial, she takes a knitting needle to the kid's tires and in the other commercial, drops the grandchild's favourite family heirloom down the sink.  'Oops.'

I was waiting for that "not impressed" face.  I wonder a bit if she's annoyed by constantly being asked to do it, but, then again, she'd probably rather people remember that than the fall which turned gold to silver.  And she's not only having fun with it, she's making money off it, so go ahead McKayla.

I don't really know what it has to do with selling a car, but I like the Subaru commercial involving a young couple going to a wedding, who get sidetracked onto a mud road, find a lost cat and get the bride's headpiece to her on time. I laugh every time I see the guy in a dandy-ish burgundy velvet jacket with the dirty cat on his lap, while he (the guy, not the cat) wears the headpiece.

"Whiskers!"  What is has to do with selling a car is showing the capabilities of the Subaru to get through rain, mud, closed road/shortcut, etc.

And to give consumers a warm, fuzzy feeling about the company.

Has anyone mentioned the Urolift commercial?  It's hilarious...it goes from a slight water drip to a gush.  So funny.

That's what he gets for badmouthing Verizon when he switched to Sprint. 😃

I remember reading that she was not happy to be remembered for that face, yet here she is making money off it...

Wasn't that the other guy? The one I was referring to when I asked whatever happened to the Sprint guy was the one in the long black coat in the 100 oxen dachshund commercial.

Yes, and the network now sucks!  I had Sprint and it was great but now since it is T-Mobile it's terrible!  I need to switch phone service.

The Petco commercial where they are saying it is a health organization  and then they all turn into pets and run off. I swear one  looks  like Matthew Gray Gubler!!  Are they pranking us??

Love that ad, once I actually watched it.

It took about half a dozen airings before I realized they were animals.  😄

It was the elegant woman reaching up to scratch behind her ear as she complemented her stylist that clued me in. It was also fun when the two dogs decided to take a turn around the room. So very Jane Austen of them.

I didn't catch it until the two came in "What did we miss?" and he was brushing dirt off his shoulder.  😄

Hopefully the guy can find some food while waiting for help, but that dog might wind up on a spit if somebody doesn't find that guy soon.

Didn't see this one discussed, but I enjoy it, but it's a fail because I can't remember if it's Pet Smart or PetCo. People with their pets, and people singing "I'd Do Anything for You," from Oliver!. I like the song and sing along and afterwards. And, I'm thinking I need to see Oliver! again, soon.

He must have had them in his backpack or a duffel bag.  The Greenies stay fresh because of the waterproof pouch.

Yeah, that poor dog didn't realize when it snatched the stick, that might have sealed his/her fate.  I just hope the guy can scrounge enough to eat until somebody comes to the rescue, but in the meantime he needs to find another stick to make the "P."

Yeah, I've overthought this one. 😁

If there is one thing a dog is good at, it's finding a stick.

I wouldn't want to be flown by the pilot who thinks the stranded man misspelled "hello" and is just waving at him to be friendly.  He doesn't seem very bright!
