I like this spooky Progressive commercial with the husband turning into his parents; first because I think the premise is amusing, and second because I like the cute bunny-teeth actress. I don't know who she is but she's been in lots of commercials.

A local dealership called John Heister Chevrolet has a long-running string of commercials featuring some use of the catchphrase "Get off your keister and come to Heister." The overly serious tone of this one is refreshingly funny for some reason.

I've mentioned the Progressive Motaur commercials before. Well, the Motaur is so badass he drinks gasoline. Kids, don't try this at home.

I like one commercial for Southern New Hampshire University (knowing nothing about this institution) because it says something so important so simply. You can find it here at 00:12.

"The world in which we live equally distributes talent, but it doesn't equally distribute oppportunity, and paths are not always the same."

I like the slow turkey ads. But I do have a minor bone to pick on one. The turkey is on the roof of the building, looking out the binoculars and doing a selfie with a pigeon. Then he walks to the elevator which has.... up and down buttons? He's on the roof- he can't go up.

Apologies if it's been said but....

I like the Indeed commercial with Claire who was passed up for the VP job. The actress playing Claire does a really good job with her facial expressions showing the heartbreak of losing, the excitement of getting the interview request then the smug "fuck you all" of knowing she's gonna get it.

Good on her.

I like the Chantix turkey. Though he has a much nicer house, better car, and goes to much more interesting places in the car than I ever will.

I like the Muppets Facebook Portal commercial (although I really don't know what they're selling).

Miss Piggy: "And of course Moi is on TV..."

Statler & Waldorf: "NOBODY CARES!"



Still makes me laugh.

While it's too damn early for Christmas commercials, at least QVC is running an amusing one.

There's a cute Uber (stay flexible) commercial with a cute older lady and her dog Buddy who drives for Uber. (Buddy doesn't drive). She drives for as many hours as she wants a week.

Sorry if this has been posted, but I just saw the :15 second version of this commercial, Duracell - Extra Life, Extra Power https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrOBVN5Lapc and literally laughed out loud. Found the :30 second version and LOL again!

I hate the idea of promoting a commercial, but this is the very rare exception!

Edit: Just watched it again. Still funny! The final close-up of the girl in couch does it for me!
