    Hi,

    I was thinking about making a thread asking what everyone's favorite commercials were but then it hit me; each country probably has it's own kind of commercials! Perhaps that might make it more interesting, I don't know.

    Well, this is one I like. They play it in the States.

    What's a commercial?

    There were some for some insurance company I saw last year that were a riot. I forgot who they were for though.

    The Dominos one where the guy orders pizza and says to his wife "It will be here in 30 minutes, want to fool around?" and then his wife says "What will we do with the other 28 minutes?" Definitely one of the funniest commercials I've seen in awhile, I'm surprised it made it past the censors.

    Now if only their pizza was as good as their commercials......

    Any commercial which doesn't crank the volume up by about 50%. :rolleyes: That pisses me off.

    I like the Guinness and Cadbury's ads, they're always different and creative. I am far too lazy to link them all too so go have a youtube search if you're curious.

    Condom commercials seem particularly amusing.

    Example 1

    Example 2 (the outtakes for that are amusing as well)


    I saw one commercial that was totally silent. It completely got my attention and I rather liked the idea but now I can't remember what it was, which is probably why it's not so commonly done.

    This Smart Beep commercial was always my favorite. I laughed so hard the first time I saw this one.

    I despise commercials.
    Especially any featuring talking Russian Meerkats. Why god. Why???

    However. I have enjoyed this one.
    Actually the other one with the Priests wasn't bad either.

    But spare me the meerkats!
    :p

    TV = news comes from forum 40 on here and no interest in the other junk on TV.
    Computer = SafariBlock FTW!
    Radio = change station

    I like the one for Visa with the dad and daughter at the aquarium. It always makes me want to go up to Monterey Bay every time I watch it. :p

    The Geico commercial with the cavemen bowling, and Three Doors Down playing their song in the background.

    Touches me everytime.

    The Jack in the Crack...err 'Box' comercials have always been comedic gold to me. I HATE the food and rarely ever eat there but who ever is in charge of their marketing must be filthy rich!! :D
    The latest one about the Mini Sirloin Burgers and the midgets is an el oh el to me. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xXkmvrT_e8]

    I posted this commercial yesterday, but I gave it it's own thread, of course it got deleted, as I hadn't seen this one, so I'll post it again here...

    A French advert, where a MacBook transforms into a spaceship and flies away:
