Generally I’m not too fond of commercials. Okay, I am almost ALWAYS not fond of commercials. Any time I feel attempts to manipulate me, I balk.
Across the board.
DVR is a gift from television heaven… I don’t remember the last time I was forced to watch a commercial.
But if a commercial makes me laugh, booyah!
Which is why I love the Super Bowl. Was there a football game? Perhaps…
And I still laugh. And… BONUS: I remember what the commercial is advertising (strong cheese). Which, to be honest, doesn’t always happen.
So here’s my nod to commercials I love. Commercials that have made me laugh. A lot.
From the Super Bowl, Best in Show (in my opinion):
“Nice pants Terry.”
I think my favorite scene – and it’s hard to choose – is the old guy in the bathroom fluffing his chest hair.
This one is getting a lot of air time on TV right now. I first saw it as a link from someone on facebook. There is nothing about this commercial I don’t love:
“I’m on a horse.”
The interest in this actor has skyrocketed since this campaign. Good for him! He’s pretty.
And, as an FYI, this ad was shot in one continuous take, with no CGI except for the diamonds flowing from his hand. If you want to see how they did this, (including how he gets on a horse), this video is rather lengthy, but interesting:
And an offering from my daughter-in-law. I LOVE this one…it even made me baby hungry:
“You ever catch a minced fish??”
I hope this little girl doesn’t grow up to be a Hollywood brat like so many do. But for now, I could eat her with a spoon.
Oh, and P.S. I got my wish. I’m sick. Sick sick sick. Though probably not the lose weight kind of sick.
