The Hotels.com Capt. Obvious spots have always seemed a bit...well...obvious, but I have to admit, this one took me by surprise.

Why is she there and we're here?

The Indeed Radio Commercial:

Announcer: Okay, there is no monkey (cymbal clanging continues). I said (screaming) There is so monkey.

I suspect that was not in the original script, but someone was not paying attention and didn't turn off the monkey. Always cracks me up.

I remember looking forward to the Geico ads that imitated the stye of unsolved mysteries.

I.e. a man in a suit saying, "Does GEICO save you money on insurance, does..."

Cut to a silly punchline.


My favorite of them all is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPX2cQP8uoI

I love the Doritos commercial featuring Sam Elliott, who slowly recites the lyrics to a song called "Old Town Road".

2020 Superbowl


'Smaht Pahk' was great, but my favorite was the Maloney-Lyons parody on the Godfather. The emu head was priceless.

From the distant past, the Stan Freberg commercials were a refreshing change.

I liked the Shining Mountain Dew commercial and the one where all people came together to clean the house. Biggest loser: the Tide Pod series with the saga about the guy not getting his shirt clean. Hey genius, clean it yourself or change it, just shut the fuck up about it.

This was mentioned in the Groundhog Day thread, but here's Bill Murray reliving Groundhog Day.

I genuinely love this insurance advert, because not only does it bring up one of the things that is genuinely something that everyone experiences when filling out a home insurance form, it does it in an amusing and very well acted way:

(It's the Aviva "does your lock conform to bs3621" advert)

I laughed at the Schmelier, fussy Philadelphia Cream Cheese expert, looking for the perfect schmear.

Maybe it was mentioned, maybe not...The General Insurance commercial, where the guy can't afford car insurance and has to go shopping with Grandma on her scooter. He's sitting, miserable, on the back as they putt along, joggers passing them by, she's wearing goggles -'COMING IN HOT'...

Maybe because I owned one and it may be my favorite car ever, but the Toyota Highlander commercial that debuted during the Super Bowl still gets me smiling.
