Best Commercials Ever

For me, my favorite all time commercial was the Levis spot that Spike Jonze did that had the ER staff singing Tainted Love to the beat of the EKG, but now I'm beginning to think those bad-ass Gameboy commercials may be the zenith of advertisements. The ones that mostly take place in an Opera house, that has the evil chandelier or the strings section that uses their bows like arrows or the pro wrestler choir, all that stuff.

Good God those are fucking awesome.

What about you?

any of the Hamms beer-bear commercials.

they had the best jingle.

from the land of sky blue wa-ah-ters (wah-hah-ters)...

i like those commercials so much more now, even though i've tasted the beer.

"Hamms... that shit's refreshing!"

I liked the outpost.com "shoot gerbils out of a cannon" ads. A classic in my mind.

I also like the 'Passat, it only looks like a million bucks' commercial where the guy with the big piece of shit car is faking injuries.

There was one I saw that was really brilliant, a car commercial, showing a car racing down a mountain road, bearing down on a moose who is standing there. The moose sees the car coming towards him and you see all these photos and grainy super 8 footage of him as a baby moose with his mom, teen moose, and so on... basically we see his life flash before his eyes. The car swerves at the last minute or something...I can't remember what company it was for, and I only saw it once but it was so clever.

I also like VW ads, in particular the cabrio ad with Nick Drake's Pink Moon, very lovely...

i thought the "yo quiero taco bell" ads were funny at first.

There was one that showed cats having sex, accompanied by porn music. I've got no fucking clue what product it advertised, but I don't care in the least.

The Target commercial with the Ticklebear.

I always got a kick out of the " I fallen and I can't get up" commercials.

But on a side not the most disturbing commercial has to be the superbowl commercial where they computer generated christopher reeve walking again.

Weird. Those are all totally forgettable - and I had to spend five minutes hunting to see what Gamebody commercial I might have been talking about, as I don't remember any Gameboy commercial ever (including the one I mentioned there).

Although yeah the Levis one is still pretty cool, although almost derivative-seeming in this day and age.



Hrm. Still no clue how to embed here.
