    This reminds me of the Breeze commercial where a little boy would spatter blue ink not only on his shirt but also on his face. The visuals go with a catchy tune and a chant that was translated in Filipino (the commercial was obviously for the US market and was only dubbed for the Filipino version). It's not really annoying because it was kind of funny. However, seeing that particular commercial so many times in an hour of watching tv, I guess that's being a hard sell already.

    I find commercials of cars very professional and artistic. That also goes for commercials of banks.

    What is Breeze? Is it a laundry detergent? I agree with you about the repetition, sometimes it gets really annoying. I think some people who create commercials are very artistic, while others show from their work that they have very limited scope of experience with anyone outside of their own demographic.

    I would have to say my all-time favorites are any of the 1980's Hershey's commercials! I don't even care to admit that they brain-washed me! They were that good. :D To this day, Hershey's is my favorite chocolate!

    Wow, I don't even remember that commercial. The '80s was a busy time for me, and I didn't watch much television back then. I probably pay more attention to ads now, or the ones I don't skip, at least ;).

    Oh, I remember watching an old commercial when I visited Romania, my home land, in 1999. It was Christmas time, and Coca Cola had a really soothing commercial around here with trucks and Christmas lights and polar bears and what not. I really love that commercial, if I can find it online, I will come back to this thread and link it.

    My husband and I went to steak and shake today. their steak burgers do taste SO much better than anyone else's burgers. But they are really skinny. When my husband picked it up, all I could hear was, "where's the beef?"

    I do not watch much television, and although there are some commercials that I think are better than others; there is not really any of the commercials that are on everyday that I pay attention to. I do enjoy seeing the special commercials that Budweiser makes for the Super Bowl, although I hate sports and never watch that either.

    Here is one commercial that I have never seen on the television; but found it posted somewhere on the internet. This commercial is from Taiwan; but it never fails to speak to my heart every time that I watch it. Hope it speaks to yours, too......

    This advert caused an adoration storm when it was first shown last year and now it's back again

    Oh wow! LOL I had never seen this one! That was best laugh I've had in awhile. I don't think my bird and my cat could be persuaded to co-exist if a cage didn't separate them!

    My favorite commercial who be any Pepsi commercial. I have loved Pepsi since high school mainly because it was the underdog to Coke back then. I love the underdog! They can be moving, funny and always seem to become better each Super Bowl year.

    I like of the Coca Cola commercials to date, and my latest favorite is from the happiness movement that keeps me singing it from time to time


    But perhaps my very, very favorite is this other from 1996 (not 97 as title reads), probably the last (or one of the last) commercials still reflecting my happiness for Christmas time coming (now almost gone)


    Other Coca Cola commercial I remember once liking me, was that one of the hundred youngsters gathered wishing peace to the world back in the 1970s, and going back further, a 1967 Christmas billboard on the top of a building near my childhood home, featuring coke bottles with crystal sphere heads dressing as angels.

    Even though, there is another favorite commercials moment I loved but barely remember, despite they were very popular in the late 1999, probably some of the first-ever aired commercials featuring an online site; Amazon.

    It was a series of 2-3 commercials with men dressed in seasonal elf-like clothing, beating drums and singing, just that. Not much staging behind. Sadly I haven't found videos of these commercials anywhere.

    :oops:One of my favorite television commercial is from Petco. This particular commercial shows a black & white tuxedo cat skateboarding and doing a little trick with skateboarding. I marveled at it because I can't skateboard at all. When skateboarding came out in the 70's I bought one and tried to learn how to skateboard. I just couldn't get accustomed to the skateboard. I can ride a bike just can't skateboard. When I saw the cat skateboarding and doing a trick I had to smile! This is the link to view the video about the skateboarding cat.

    I don't remember what the commercial was actually for it was a long time ago- It was about a real cute little girl in a dress, and I think she was eating peas, and for some reason she is up on the table and her shoe flies off and hits this guy in the head, it was just hysterical to me.

    Other then that I really like the Budweiser Frogs and if anyone remembers the Frito Bandito


    Funny but I seem to recall the older commercials better then the new ones. I guess because we have so many commercials these days I just tune them out. I always like the Coke Bears in the Christmas season, and there was this Santa one where Santa rode a shaver.

    I couldn't honestly tell you when I last saw a TV commercial. I very rarely watch commercial television and on the odd occasions I do, the advert break gets switched off, turned over or whatever it takes to avoid it. Fortunately, most of the little television I watch is on the BBC, which has no advertising.

    Hello everyone, there are so many commercials that I enjoy watching, and some that I don't really care for, and wonder who comes up with these commercials? One that comes to mind that I thought was so funny, is the one about the couple start dancing to the Dirty Dancing song "The time of my life," It's about United Health Care. Every time I watch this it makes me laugh. Finally someone came up with something funny. Don't get me wrong, there are other commercials, like the one where people see themselves as toddlers, and they are dancing in front of the store, now that is a cute commercial. The link below will show you the commercial.
