I saw that last night, and it gave me such a smile.  Animals engaged in inter-species playing and snuggling, a Roger Miller ditty ... can't go wrong.

I was in junior high when big hair like that was popular, and that is such an accurate rendition of the toxic atmosphere inside the girls' bathrooms...

 

 

I don't mind the concept of that commercial, but their terribly bad attempt at accents annoy me to no end.  Not even close.

I have to admit I get a kick out of the. GEICO "Did you know that playing cards with Kenny Rogers gets old real fast?" ad--especially his "What?" when he realizes the entire table is staring at him. :)

I ESPECIALLY love that Kenny Rogers pronounces "What?" like Stewie does with "HWheat-thins"!  Hwhat?

GET YOUR BILLIONS BACK AMERICA! I'm going to miss this guy come Apr 15th.

 

Unfortunately, I fear he will be back.  Clearly, throwing him out of an airplane didn't kill him.

The guy may be a liar. The national chains have a track record of being conservative in doing peoples' taxes, so they may not get you as much of your money back as somebody else.

I know it's downright trendy these days to feature a gay couple in commercials, but I like this commercial for Kodak:

I like the Kordale and Kaleb commercial because of the backstory.

 

 

Kordale and Kaleb's story went viral last year when the pair posted on Instagram a photo of their family getting ready in the morning, which then inspired extreme homophobic backlash. The criticism seemed to come mainly from Twitter users who took issue with the idea of two gay black men raising children together.

Because I can't stand jewelry store ads, this Dairy Queen commercial cracked me up. Short but sweet (no pun intended).

This is his third yearly tv. I miss the first year, when he was just the cute little bow tie wearing man who was offering to help me with my taxes. They totally took away his initial appeal.

So, they've borrowed from the Geico playbook: keep bringing those initially cute and clever spokescharacters back until we really, really hate them.

I'm not a fan of Gogurt, but I love the commercial where the father packs the son's lunch and gives him two Gogurts.  It cracks me up every time I see it.

I love the commercial for Kings Hawaiian rolls with the lady and the baby. The way she wads up the wrapper, and the look on the baby's face when he's caught.

This is a not a real commercial, but for at least a little bit I thought it was.  Great parody of all those GI upset commercials:

my current favorite: 

 

I don't even know what they're selling, but I could watch it all day! 

 

As much as I adore that ad, what makes it even better is at the end when the orangutan just falls over.

The whole thing is adorable. I first showed it to my sister, and she'd say "Awww," then another pair would come up, and she'd say, "AWWW!" and on and on. Then I showed it to my BIL, and he did the exact same thing. I do love the orangutan at the end, but, although it's hard to choose, I think my favorite bit is the cockatoo giving the dog some noodles.

I love the dog and deer chasing each other and the cat with the chicks best. But they're all adorable, even the orangutan (I'm not a fan of monkeys, chimps, apes).

In the category of 'Just the Right amount of Silly', the Dr Pepper ad with a little sweetness -- personified. It's the falsetto that gets me!

My two favorite new commercials:

 

The Snickers one with Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi, and the Sprint one with the narwhals.  Although the second one probably doesn't work all that well as a commercial because I have no idea what plan Sprint wants me to remember.

I LMAO at the end when she was running away from the word.

I'm trying to memorize the company color scheme so if I like or hate an ad I know who to credit:

  • Red = Verizon
  • Blue = AT&T
  • Yellow = Sprint
  • Pink = T-Mobile
  • Orange = metroPCS

There are smaller companies but these are the heavy advertisers.
