Great TV ads

By CharlieSpencer ·
The heck with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld; what's the best TV ad you can remember? One per customer, please, so make it a good one. Oh, and you have to remember the product, not just the ad.

My favorite? The best Super Bowl commercial ever. This guy uses almost as much of the product as I do.

Cadbury Gorllia Ad

by Oz_Media In reply to Great TV ads

Sorry to be so biased but I find UK ads hilarious (British Airways are very clever and Hands off Humphrey (milk ads) are an old favorite), Japanese have some REALLY clever ones too.

I don't get into most of our ads tough, US or Canada, they are too tacky, not clever and definitely not very funny or engaging.
I find they are based on stupid jingles and ugly kids and show no real imagination, talent or creativity, much like most comedy movies these days.

So with that said: Here's ONE of my favorite ads for Cadbury, Phil Colins eat your heart out.

(Though this one isn't exactly the cerebral type of ad I was referring to, it certainly is one COOOOOOL gorilla!)

turn it up!

I find the japanese and European ads are usually the most creative, like these:

I can't think of one that's been funny as of late though.

Trying to narrow down the field....

by CaptBilly1Eye In reply to Great TV ads

...there are tons of memorable ones.
I remember laughing at the Alka-Seltzer commercials.... "I can't believe I ate the whole thing"

The Budweiser Ads were usually pretty good.

The ones on now that I like best are the "Messin' with Sasquatch" series for Jack Link's Beef Jerky.
They even have their own site:

BUT... my favorite one is the second one of these two for the Ford Sportka (sold in Europe):

I guarantee you'll never see either of those in the US!

Hey Palmetto... Thanks for the fun diversion today. I needed it!

nope definitely not!

Received any angry peer mails from cat lovers yet?

One thing though, wouldn't that make an awful mess inside the car? I would think it would not have wanted that. :)
