What is your favorite commercial on television, radio, or the Internet? I want to hear about it even if it is from another country. For me it is the Progressive commercials. I really like the one where the guy is standing out in the parking lot talking about Progressive Insurance will come out to you to give you an estimate on the damage do on your vehicles. The guy says he is a musician and he says that Progressive will come out to see the damage done to his van if it is pummeled by adoring fans or if he is hit by light poles. The he goes to say, “It just came out of nowhere.”

I love that one too. My latest favorite is the commercial where Beckham is coming to the U.s. and the Spanish are taking the news real hard. There's a little girl crying, a man is adding Beckham's name to a stop sign, another is peeling the 2 from the 23 sticker, A woman is reading the paper and she is in shock, meanwhile Beckham is greeting crowds and suiting up to play in the U.S. and the music playing is " You say Good bye and I say Hello" by the Beatles.

I just saw another great commerical. There is a Red VW Bug convertible parked and a car thief steals it.He puts do the top and is driving. He stops for school children to cross the street and the last child waves at him. He passes a bus stop where an older couple waves at him. He makes a u-turn and returns the car. The last scene the true car owner comes to the car. This is the second VW commerical. The first a VW Bug is parked in a towing zone, and the tow truck guy gets in the car and instead of towing the car, he moves it up to a non towing parking spot.

I did see the second VW commecial where the tow truck driver moves the car up a spot so as not to tow the car away. I have not seen the Beckham commercial. I know they are going to be airing a reality show about their life and who hard it is to find a home and find a decent school for the boys. I am sure it will be a big hit.

Yeah I like that one...I just saw one yesterday for the first time with Sigourney Weaver in that machine-thing beating the crap out of that Alien, and she says, "Stay away from her, you -----!", and then suddenly turns to the camera and starts talking about how great direct tv is...anyway, it was pretty wierd to see that. I like the caveman commericials, too. There's a few others but I just can't think of them right this minute.

I like the Chlor-mint commercial.Whenever we eat chlor-mint a sexy girl jumps on us from anywhere,we only have to catch her.A guy is watching all this,the people who eat chlor-mint always get a sexy babe,and atlast when he eats chlor-mint a sheep jumps on him.So the moral of the sory is you will get love when you eat Chlor-mint,but love from anyone.

I very rarely watch TV, and my favorite commercials and cloudy memory of them may very well reflect that because they're both long gone. The first was broadcast in the late 90's and it was for GE. I remember some aviation footage shown, and the theme was "What are we doing here?" I mostly thought the song was cool. I am in favor of GE commericals in general, but that one was my favorite. The other one was from 2002 and for Office Depot. It opened I think in a classroom full of elementary school age kids and the teacher asks one of them to name the first American woman in space. After mulling over the question, Sally Ride, who happens to be sitting beside him cheats and gives him the answer. I think the most memorable line fron that was when Sally is asked if she wants a ride, and she replies, "No thanks, I'll take the shuttle!" Again, these memories are very vague, so don't expect them to be 100% accurate.

I think back 4 or 5 years ago, Taco Bell has this commercial on TV with the talking Chihuahua. That's very funny I love to see that! And I think after that commercial showed up, have Chihuahua as a pet became a trend.

One of the best commercials ever was an M&M's commercial. Red, Yellow and Blue are sitting on some steps eating M&M's, Red eating plain, Yellow eating peanut and Blue eating crispy. The guy who'd been in several commercials with them comes up and says "What are you doing? You can't eat M&M's!" Red says "Why not, you do." The guys says "You don't eat your own kind." So they swap bags. Then the guy takes the bags away from them and walks off shaking his head. The first time I saw that commercial I was laughing so hard I couldn't move. I ended up being half an hour late for work. When I explained why to the manager he laughed and said to go ahead and mark down that I came in ontime on my time card.

You have an understanding boss. I do not think it will work a second time. Nothing like canaballistic M&M's.

I have a couple. One is the Home Depot commercial with the girl who looks about 12, and she's in the kitchen and her dad walks in and she goes "what's up with these cupboards? and what about the lights? and the appliances? You should go to Home Depot" like the kitchen looks sooo uncool. Then she walks out ot the living room and her mom is sitting there and doesn't say a word, just holds some money up and the girl takes it as she walks by. Also there is a Diet Mountain Dew commercial on the radio about some town in New Zealand called Hokywakitookykaukau something. It's hysterical!!

The Home depot one is good, she gets the daughter to do her work for her. I have not heard the the diet Mountain dew one. I will be looking forward to hearing it. I like the budwiser commercials onthe radio that solute the workers. The everyday workers. I can't think of of but they are cute songs.

I think that Geico has to be my favorite with the little gecko I think it is. He talks and has an accent. He walk around like a human and sells the service of insurance. Glad that they keep using that and hope that they do for a long time. I remember the commercial that you mention. They work on the care it looks like while he speaks of the product.

I do like the Geico gecko, I also like the comcast turtles. I like the one where he is pushing the laptop out in the yard away from the hook up to make it go slower. She says "Push it" and he say "You come push it Push it real good". I think they are so funny.

I know the commercial you are referring to, it is funny, but I have to say I like the M&M commercials and the ones about Geico insurance with the little geico. I think he's cute and cool.
