Don't know if this one has been mentioned; I didn't want to read all thirteen pages. But I just saw this on TV, and it made me laugh out loud. It's Geico's western-themed "words can hurt" spot. I just crack up when the woman says, "Jessie?"

I'm no fan of commercial interruptions. But if they must occur, I hope they keep making 'em like that.

There's one I've seen lately that I really like. It has a father and his young son at the kitchen table. The dad is telling his son how there's just nothing like Jello pudding some days. He describes waking up every morning with less hair than he had the day before, and driving to work every day in the crushing traffic and how thing at work are always very trying. The whole time he is describing his day, his son is seeing himself in his dad's position. It's very cute. At the end the boy slides his bowl across the table, telling his dad that he needs it more.

I developed a massive crush on Robia La Morte during her stint on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', not realizing I'd earlier seen her in this ad:

Going way back, Stroh's beer put out a long run of funny, well-done ads in the 60s-70s. A few that come to mind:

-What looks like an anti-drug PSA has a dad entering his son's room and confronting him with the question "When you go out with your friends, do you drink beer?" after some back-and-forth the son shouts "Of COURSE I drink beer, Dad! [we see him for the first time] I'm 35 years old!" Dad replies "I want to make sure you're drinking GOOD beer, son!"

- A British regiment marching through a hot desert stops for a break. One of them tells a friend to open up "one of them Stroh's beers". His friend pantomimes opening a bottle and 'passing' it around to his appreciative comrades. As they leave, the sergeant points to the nonexistent empty and barks "Pick it up, man! Don't want them to know we've been here!"

- A couple of dusty Western galoots wheel into a tony city bar, ordering Stroh's. The well-dressed clientele looks on in puzzled amusement as the two cheerfully whoop it up. One tells the bartender "We come over a thousan' miles fer some Stroh's beer!" The bartender shrugs "Doesn't surprise me" as a bowler-hatted London businessman strides in and orders one. In the fadeout a galoot hollers "HAW! I like him!"

What can I say? I saw these decades ago and still recall them well. Can't find them on these internet tubes though...

Hey Bittersweet,
I'm embarassed to admit I haven't mastered copying links on my new tablet! I really like it but I have some learning to do. :0)
My friend and I were joking about this the other day and she found them all on the web, no problem. She searched "9/11 Budweiser commerial" (I like the longer version), "State Farm French model", and "hail to the v". Up they popped. Now I'm going to find my grandson or the neighbor's kid to show me how to use this thing!

Very cool Anna-P...Do you have links to these commercials??? I normally know most of the clever ones but these escape me!!! pout*

Anna-P says:
-State Farm commercial with the girl dating thr "French model". Its been absorbed into our vocab. Whenever someone falls for something obviously farfetched, we ask them if they're "dating French models too".
-The Budweiser 9/11 tribute still gives me the sniffles. May be kind of nerdy but I recorded. It was lost when a lightning strke blew my electronics.
-While I normally hate fem hygiene adds and it apparently stirred outrage in some circles, the Summer's Eve commercial with the knights and ninjas battling over women had me roaring with politically incorrect laughter.

my favourite advert is a fake advert from the Psy Corp episode of Babylon 5 "The Corps Is Mother, The Corps Is Father" filled with great propaganda .

AT&T It's not complicated commercials - The whole series is pretty funny, but the one with the little girl explaining why more is better than less - "We want more, we want more." Love it!

Well, I might be embellishing it - but just a little. And I swear those ads must be three minutes long, they sure feel like it.
