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
