    I was reading in another thread about commercials and this got me thinking of the new Happy cow commercial.

    What is everyone's favorite commercial?

    I love the Happy Cow commercials. They are hysterical.

    I really like a beer commercial that has the song carmina burana but with ad-related lyrics. Carlton Drought, maybe? Excellent work by the organizing crew

    Not a great deal actually, some extras from Lord of The Rings when it was filming in NZ and they just cloned them in like they did in the film.

    It better sell some bloo-ooo-ooody beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrr........ :D

    I also liked the "Where the Bloody Hell are you?" Australian Tourism Board ads even though they flopped overseas and were roundly lambasted on The Chaser's War on Everything TV show where the ad became "So get your d*ckhead arse the f*ck over here"

    I just rememberes another one: I think it was Honda that made a commercial with a bunch of car parts. It took like 400 tries to get it right. It was a great sequence

    Ooh yeah, the Accord Euro (as it's known here) ad. No special effects, no cuts, must've taken them weeks to get it right.

    That is awesome...and I'm sure I'd be much more amazed if I hadn't just seen "Children of Men" which features two of the most mind-blowing and gutsy tracking shots in motion picture history.

    the Dove "evolution" ad is one of my current favorites

    the Sony tv ones tend to be good too.

    oh and the Blaupunkt bunny commercial is good too.

    T-mobile's my-faves commercial where the guy has his friend's girlfriend's number as one of his 5 free numbers. Not to mention a Pulp Fiction reference thrown in for good measure.

    Those aren't bad, but I like the Poser Mobile ones better.


    Although my favorite would have to be the ones for Career Builder with the monkeys. Those are hillarious :D

    I like the Comcast cable ones. Those make me laugh for some reason. Though they tend to play them too much.
