We all watch commercials. We all hate commercials. But not all commercials are bad. My favorite commercial now that makes me laugh each time i see it is The geicho commercial with the cavemen. I think they did a great job on those. I especially like the one where he is talking to a psychiatrists and says "my mother is calling, I'll put it on speaker phone" That cracks me up every time. My favorite commercial from back then Is the Life cereal commercial "Give it to Mikey he wont eat it' Thats where my son Mikey got his name. And would you believe it? he is very picky but he loves Life cereal. lol What commercial do you like now and what commercial did you like when you were younger?? Say as many as you like. Lets take a walk on memory lane together.

Because I am in a different country to you princess you wouldn't know the advert or commercial I love best it's about a credit card used by guinea pigs and they have these guinea pigs all dressed up like husband and wife going out shopping and even a guinea pig driving a speed boat! It is so funny when I first saw it I was in tears, you have to see it to appreciate it. The only reason I like commercials normally is so I can go and make myself a cup of coffee or go to the loo! I wonder if I can get a link for you, I'll get back on that one x

There were some great commercials back when I was growing up. From the Life one with "Give it to Mikey" to "I want to Teach the World to Sing" by Coke. You also had the one with Mean Joe Green and giving the jersey to the kid. The Dr. Pepper, be a Pepper, commercials also stick out to me. "Where's the beef" was one that really surprised everyone. There were a lot of good ones. I think my favorite ones right now are the Direct TV ones. Where they do the clips from the movies and the character suddenly is talking about if they had Direct TV or now that they do etc. I think those are very well done and enjoyable. The other one I do like is the one Check Card (I think Visa) where is shows Charlie Sheen trying to write a check and it takes so long that at the end it's Martin Sheen standing there.

I love the coke song! I still sing it once in a while, even though I don't remember the words! Do you remember the alka seltzer ones? Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz, Oh what a relief it is! We quoted that one quite often, too, when we were kids. :)

I loved the Alka Seltzer commercials :) I also remember the ones with "I can't believe I ate the whole whing" Did you see the commercial where they took the original 70's one for Burger King and found the same actors from it? They showed part of the original and then zoomed to today to show them still buying Burger King.

Well, When I think of older commercials, I think mcdonalds comes to mind, lets see if I can get this right: "two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, onions, pickles on a sesame seed bun. Hmmmm, did I get that right? If you can remember that and the more modern happy California cows commercials I think are pretty cool. Take care!!

I think that nowadays commercials are gettin better and better. A while back i couldn't stand commercials but now they make them funny and i love to laugh. My favorite commercial use to be the psp commercials but they dont show those anymore and now my favorite commercial is about hot pockets. Two teens are making out and a chineese guy pops up and says "You don't want makeout, you want hot pocket" I repeat that all the time especially when im at a grocery store and i see someone goin for the hot pockets. lol

I love the T-Mobile fave five commercial where one guy has his friend's girlfriend's number in his phone with the song "Secret Lovers" as his ringtone...it's hilarious. I also really like some of the Cingular dropped calls commercials...especially the one where the guy calls the girl he went out with the night before and asked if she felt a connection.

I can't think of anything from the past...but now there's a commercial on that I break out laughing each time I see it...It's for the New York Lotto...There's a family all having there dinner, suddedly their cat comes into the room having a coughing and choking fit..it's coughing and coughing.but instead of a furball, it spits up a diamond as big as a person's hand...I look at my two cats thinking...gee, why can't you guys do that--LOL

my favorite as of lately is the wendys commercial where they are eating the spicey sandwiches and have to talk while breathing in unless they want fire to come out of their mouths, oh and the long john silvers commercial when the fisherman catch square fish and the one guy says "that aint right" lmao the older commercials that really arent real old would be the budweiser comercials with the frogs
