Subject: Television Commercials You Like.

Written By: zcrito on 07/16/04 at 11:44 pm

Well we can all name and talk about television commercials we hate but is there any you like?

I know it's not always possible to name them off the top of your head -- who remembers commercials anyway -- but list 'em as you see 'em.

I do have the first one I like:

It's a current one that's playing on U.S. television for General Motors Professional Grade Engineering. It has an auto designer at his desk and every bad design on paper he wads up and throws in the garbage can becomes a real auto crashing into the ground in desolate field. I like the music that plays in the background and the way you only see the autos crashing down like rain when the commercial starts. It's like a mini music video.

There are a bunch that I used to like....presently I like that Motel 6 one where Tom Bodet talks about a dark room looking just like those expensive ones. I also love the "Mike's Hard Lemonade" commercial where the guy tries to hit on a woman and she head butts him ;D

I also like the Geico Insurance commercials with the "Well, hello there", gecko lizard. :)

Geico's commercials were always much easier to appreciate over Progressive Insurance's earlier male bashing ones.  >:(

Ther's one on here in the UK at the moment that I like the music for.  It's bugging me though because I recognise it but can't remember where from.

The advert is for ING finance and the music sort of sounds like either a radio or tv show theme tune.  Do any of the Brits know?

Most of the ones advertsing Guiness Ice are pretty funny - as long as you remember the originals.  I can't quite picture the original one of the fish on the bicycle.

Of these I think the funniest are the surfers ("tick followed tock followed tick") and the dancing eskimo.

I don't know if these are nationwide in the US or not, but I love the Dairy Queen commercial for the new Moolate.  Two men are doing a blind taste test and have a lady blindfolded.  She loves the DQ drink and when they try to take it back, she jumps up and runs into the window.  Hillarious!

I also like the Starbuck's commercial  Very funny!

My all time fave is for the Celica.  It came out a few years ago.  A red Celica is parked on the side of an neighborhood street.  A little dog comes running from behind the house to chase the car and runs into the back of it.  The words come up on the screen, "Celica.  Looks fast."  Then you hear the little god whine.  I laughed until I cried over that one. 

Another good one is a Snicker's commercial where the guy is trying to fix a trophy and winds up with his cat superglued to his back.

A good funny commercial but it may be one where people don't remember who it's for.
You remembered it I see, but they  should have had Yogi or Yao say "vi-sa" somewhere at its end to tie it to the "yo"s.

good one that's out now for some truck/suv. The driver pulls up to a red light next to a smaller sporty car...the drivers look at each other as if they say:'That little car can't take this suv!' the small car driver revs the engine as if to start a race..the suv driver smiles like:'try it!' The light turns green, the sports car peels out high speed...but next to the suv in the slow lane is a police car that couldn't be seen because the suv was covering its view and the cop takes off to arrest the speedy sports car!

At first this was cute, but the more I think about it...I hate the product because it is really telling me HOW BIG the damn vehicle is that you couldn't see around it!!!
Anyone else????

Also in LA. they are running a HONDA commercial have live and half animated with a guy called "Mr. Opportunity". It's just the voice of the guy that ALWAYS did the commercial..nothing all that new!

I like the Staples commercial where they are singing "It's the most wonderful time of the year" and the guy is wheeling around on the cart and the kids have "if looks could kill" looks on their faces.

I also like the one that says "Fact: Cats do not come with breaks." Anyone who has a cat knows this is very true.

The one for some camera where the dog was being punished for going in the garbage and it was the cat who did it and the dog took a picture of the cat in action.

I was thinking about this the other day...so when I found this thread I had to add mine to the pile. ;-)

A few commercials I like include...

"Scent of Bob" Zest commercial

One of the iMac (I think) commercials where the man is making faces through the window of a shop and the computer monitor is "mimicking" him (cool whistling music in the background)

Someone earlier in the thread mentioned Prego commercials... one I enjoyed was the one where the ladies were turning cartwheels out in a meadow to the song "Born Free" (that may have been Ragu; do not recall right off my head).

The Nokia (Little China) commercial where the guy is trying to tell the shop owners he needs the bathroom and finally has someone download a picture of a toilet over his cell phone.

The Walgreens "in a town called Perfect" commercials

I also particularly like many of the Christmas commercials.  One of my all time holiday favorites was the Stetson commercial with the couple on the horse and the chorus singing "Easy for you" in the background.  Another favorite was the "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire" spots (sung by Stevie Wonder & Natalie Cole) a couple years back.

Well we can all name and talk about television commercials we hate but is there any you like?

I know it's not always possible to name them off the top of your head -- who remembers commercials anyway -- but list 'em as you see 'em.

I do have the first one I like:

It's a current one that's playing on U.S. television for General Motors Professional Grade Engineering. It has an auto designer at his desk and every bad design on paper he wads up and throws in the garbage can becomes a real auto crashing into the ground in desolate field. I like the music that plays in the background and the way you only see the autos crashing down like rain when the commercial starts. It's like a mini music video.

good one that's out now for some truck/suv. The driver pulls up to a red light next to a smaller sporty car...the drivers look at each other as if they say:'That little car can't take this suv!' the small car driver revs the engine as if to start a race..the suv driver smiles like:'try it!' The light turns green, the sports car peels out high speed...but next to the suv in the slow lane is a police car that couldn't be seen because the suv was covering its view and the cop takes off to arrest the speedy sports car!

At first this was cute, but the more I think about it...I hate the product because it is really telling me HOW BIG the darn vehicle is that you couldn't see around it!!!
Anyone else????

Also in LA. they are running a HONDA commercial have live and half animated with a guy called "Mr. Opportunity". It's just the voice of the guy that ALWAYS did the commercial..nothing all that new!

I am a car nut so I love car commercials. Hear are my favorite car commercials.

-Any Nissan commercial from the past few years. Nissan has some catchy commercials along with good music in the background.

-The Mitsubishi commercials in the early 00's(2000-2003) with the catchy background music. I like their commercials from a couple of years ago as well.

-Mazda's "Zoom Zoom Zoom". Their commercial's were cute in the early 00's. Alot of people thought their ads were annoying but I loved them. I akso the new Mazda commercial were they rag on Honda, Toyota, and Nissan. I don;t think its a good idea to rag on those 3 car companies but its a funny commercial. I do like Honda though. Nissan's alright too.

-The Hyundai Commercial when a brand new Elantra(Hyundai's compact car) came out in 2000-2001. There was a girl in the commercial and she was telling you why you should buy a Hyundai. I thought it was real informative commercial. In addition Hyundai built alot of terrible cars in the 90's. The commercial shows you why you should give Hyundai a chance to redeem themeselves(at the time) from the bad cars they built in the 90's.

-I like commercial with Bill Ford(the boss at Ford) from a couple of years about how his Dad brought up the company and stuff like that. I am not a huge Ford fan but another informative commercial.

-I like the commercials with NASCAR Drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Michael Waltrip. Those 2 guys are funny when they are together.

Other commercials:

I like the NFL playoff commercials from a few years ago with actor Don Cheadle in them. Those commercials were awesome.

Those NFL United Way Commercials.

Those "Six Flags Great Adventure Commercials" when that old guy is dancing in front of the bus.

I agree that commercial was cute.

Anybody remember that commercial when the 2003 Toyota Corolla first came onto the market a couple of years ago? There was a guy at a party with his friends and I think he drove a Corolla on the way home from the party or something. Anybody recall the exact detail of that commercial? I liked that commercial.

It has these two kids that are made out of claymation and they are sitting at a table and talking about why baking is so important, and the little boy drops his muffin on the floor and he looks like he is going to cry.

The other commercial that I really like is from a few years ago. It is for Visa. It shows a man walking along in front of a cage of monkeys and he is looking at them with a thoughful look on his face. He drops his wallet and one of the monkeys hands it back to him. He smiles at the monkey and gets in a Jeep and drives away. Then they show the monkey that handed him back his wallet  now has hold of his Visa and all the other monkeys are screaming because they are excited. Does anyone remember this one? ;) ;D

I LOVE those commercials as well! ;D I only saw them once during the Today show on NBC but I thought it was so funny...especially at the end when they brought the dishes to Mr. Clean :) Wasn't their a few other characters, as well? I can't remember who they were now though, I saw the commercial about 2 weeks ago.


Just found this on a ad agency news site:

Animation for the MasterCard "ICONS" commercial produced by Calabash Animation of Chicago
Posted: February 15, 2005


The cast is an ensemble of some of the most famous food industry icons ever created. The featured players are:
The Jolly Green Giant, Charlie the Tuna, The Pillsbury Dough Boy, Chef Boyardee, Mr. Peanut, Count Chocula, The Morton Salt Girl, The Vlassic Stork and Gorton's Fisherman (the spot also boasts a special guest appearance by Mr. Clean).

I don't see it on anymore, but sometime late 2004 (I think), there was a Bacardi Rum commercial with two men dressed up as flies.  The older one talks about how his 24 hours (of life) are almost up and he should have lived it up while he had the chance and advises the younger one to not waste his life.  Then the old fly lets out a cough and keels over backward and dies.  They then show clips of the young fly taking the advice and partying with "Born to be Alive" playing in the background.  Then, his 24 hours are up and he falls from the ceiling he was dancing on.  Morbidly funny - especially when the old fly coughs and dies.  You kind of have to see it to understand the humor I guess, but I'd love to see that one again!

Oh that reminds me, I LOVED the Meow Mix commercial where they are recording the cat singing the Meow Mix song, and it starts coughing and hacking.  That commercial cracks me up everytime.

I like the cat litter commercial for multi cats where there are about 50 cats partying in this house, then the owners come home and they all scatter and then there is just the three housecats accting like nothing happened until the big white cat comes out with a lampshade on his head.

I LOVE commercials with cats in them, I am a sucker for cats.  :D

I have come to conclusion that a lot of these companies are hiring terrible ad agencies. Most of the commericals out there, just have me scratching my head and saying, "HUH?" There are a few exceptions.

I don't usually like Mountain Dew commercials but one I do like is the guy who plays that slapping game and he is terrible at first it but after practicing he gets better. At the end the old master says, "That's fast...but not fast enough".

Geico's dissed cavemen campaign is the funniest one going.

I think it started with the pitchman saying, "Geico insurance is so easy to apply for, even a caveman could do it!," and then it cut to a modern suburban home inhabited by Neanderthals who see the commercial and say, "Oh, that was so not cool!"  Then it spun off into a whole drama about the company trying to apologize to the cavemen, and succeeding only in making the cavemen even more offended.  It's a fun spoof on race prejudice.  Heck, it takes a lot to get me to watch ads for an insurance company!

Well we can all name and talk about television commercials we hate but is there any you like?

I know it's not always possible to name them off the top of your head -- who remembers commercials anyway -- but list 'em as you see 'em.

I do have the first one I like:

It's a current one that's playing on U.S. television for General Motors Professional Grade Engineering. It has an auto designer at his desk and every bad design on paper he wads up and throws in the garbage can becomes a real auto crashing into the ground in desolate field. I like the music that plays in the background and the way you only see the autos crashing down like rain when the commercial starts. It's like a mini music video.
