Commercials

Post by stlouie_lipp »

Good or bad. Commercials you hate or commercials that make you laugh.

I'll start: The new Toyota commercial with the girl who "has a meeting in 15" and asks Jan for the "elevator pitch". I hate that commercial (independent of my feelings for Jan).

I could have posted this in the "Corporate Speak" thread, but....http://gatewayredbirds.com/forum/viewto ... =9&t=56397

Rare that I am live on Tv. Even then, I tune them out instinctively.

The only ones I've consistently liked are the Sonic guys, and that AT&T smartass talking to kids in a classroom (before those got overplayed). The current "most hated" for me is that one with the woman singing Blondie while driving and doesn't realize she's still on speakerphone.

The Blake Griffin Kia commercials are pretty good.

Geico's are consistently pretty watchable and they keep it fresh with new stuff all the time.

The Klondike ads where the hot candy bar and the Klondike bar get it on to 70s porn music are my favorite by far.

More than any commercials out there, I despise the sonic guys.

The Kelly Hu Viagra commercial is awesome, just because I get to look at her.

The Toyota "Pat" commercials are so bad they are good.

I still chuckle at the Geico "words really can hurt" commercial every time Jessie hits the sign and falls off the horse.
