    More often than not, I find commercials annoying and sloppy. However, every now and then I see one, which I actually like.... and remember. What are your favorites? Links to the commercials on YouTube encouraged!

    Cheers

    Qantas - Feels Like Home


    Budweiser - Best Buds


    Alfa Romeo - Riding Dragons

    I don't have a TV so I could go for this thread, presumably it will end up being a highly curated collection of gems worth the watch. The kind so good you remember forever but not necessarily the brand... a product manfacturers pounds his head against the boardroom table over having approved these things. Thanks!

    Must include the classic 1972 "Mikey" pitch for a cereal.

    Carlsberg had some clever ads a few years ago.

    I love Asian commercials, especially those that hits you in the feels. Here are two of my favorite of all time.

    Dunno what it says about the commercial that I couldn't actually remember what it was advertising, but it's really visually engaging for what is essentially a stop motion music video:

    Agreed. To me, the instrumentation is fine, but those vocals… Ugh. Here's what it would've sounded like with the original song:

    I've been trying to find an ad I saw almost 15 years ago, but haven't been able to. I think it might have been an ad for Qantas, but i'm not sure.

    It's night time and the lights are dimmed on a flight. A man wearing a suit is sitting in business class.

    The pilot quietly announces.... 'Ladies & gentlemen, i'd thought you would like to know that we have just entered Australian airspace'.

    The man gets up and goes to the toilet, and when he returns to his seat, he's wearing board shorts and flip flops.:)

    Not sure if this technically counts as an ad, but I totally digged it...


    I recently flew AirNZ, and i found the service to be very professional and courteous. The food was pretty unique too. Highly recommended.
