Subject: TV Commercial (Past & Present) That You Like!

Written By: RockandRollFan on 05/20/04 at 6:06 pm

Currently I like the pepsi...yes, pepsi commercial where the dog eats the sandwich, drinks the pop then places the cat on the counter to take the blame. From the past I'd say for starters that I enjoyed the Budweiser Lizards and the Ferret :)

From the past: The Pepsi commercial that took place in the "future" (mid '80's)

There was one for (I think) Snickers a few years back where an old man was painting the endzone at Arrowhead Stadium (home of the Kansas City Chiefs). One of the players (Neil Smith?) was watching him and said, "Nice job, but who are the Chefs?" The camera pulled back to reveal the word "CHEFS" in big letters. The old man then muttered, "Great googly-moogly!" I thought that one was pretty funny. ;D

I like the identity theft commercials.
One of my favorite older ones was about Pepsi's "fresh date."  This guy had a super-slow butler who was bringing him his Pepsi and he keeps yelling at him (I'm assuming his name was Richard, I don't remember)  RI-CHARD!!!! RI-CHARD!!!!

Ditto!  ;)

As for old commercials, I like the Oscar Meyer bologna commercial where the little boy is sitting on a pier singing, "My bologna has a first name...it's O-S-C-A-R...."  :)

I always liked the one for Nissan? The one with the Ken Doll picking up Barbie to the tune of Van Halen's "You Really Got Me"  :)

There's this radio ad that just kills me every time I hear it. It's for horse racing at the state fairgrounds and it has a racetrack announcer who says something like,
   
     "And they're off! And out of the gate is Guys Night Out, followed by One Too Many Beers and Liquid Courage! Liquid Courage is making a move on Beautiful Girl, but Beautiful Girl is pulling away! Oh, no! Here comes Cheesy Pickup Line! Cheesy Pickup Line is followed by Flattery, but Flattery is going nowhere! Beautiful Girl is coming back with You're A Creep, Get A Life, and You're A Loser! Rounding out the finish is Bruised Ego, Laughing Friends, and the favorite, She Wasn't My Type Anyway!"

Another voice then comes on and says, "For a better time, come to Nebraska State Fair park for live racing."

Oh yeah and one more recent one I like...

This biker guy goes to get a tattoo... and he wants his girlfriends name "Donna".. (Ritchie Valens' "Donna" playing in background)

Halfway through the tattoo the biker tells the tattoo guy he doesn't have enough money for the tattoo, so the tattoo guy stops...leaving the name "Don" on his arm... then they're playing the same tune of "Donna" but saying "oh, Don, oh, Don"  :)

I don't even remember what the commercial was for..

I think it was Little Caesar's Pizza, they show an Italian grandmother cooking from a big cauldron  and a big family sitting around in a picnic setting, the voice announcing says something like, it is a feast that only comes once a year, but it's the most vile tasting stuff and they show the guests getting ready to heave, then they cut away and say they should of ordered pizza  ;D

C'mon, you're crazy if you think that was a great commercial. I always thought that was one of the worst commercials of all time. Selling pizza, yet having people act as if they're going to throw up. That's pretty awful.
It's also one of the first commercials I can think of that I truly hated.

My current favorites are the Geico "That's so condescending" Caveman adds.  ;D

I always preferred Geico's friendly commercials over Progressive Insurances horrendous old male bashing ones.

Here are my favourite TV commercials of the year so far.

The Dolmio adverts with a family of puppets
The Cadbury's Dairy Milk advert in which a gorilla drums to 'In The Air Tonight' by Phil Collins
The Strongbow adverts where the men go, "Aah..." for a long time because they're totally refreshed (Total first pint refreshment) - very funny
The Snickers advert where Mr T drives a tank
The BHF advert where lots of people exercise and there's a catchy drum beat
