Subject: Commercial Break

Written By: Henk on 08/25/07 at 11:23 am

Just plain funny, or otherwise remarkable commercials. Maybe you've seen them before, maybe you haven't. Feel free to add your own favorites. :)

Here are a couple for Centraal Beheer, a Dutch insurance company. Their main offices are in the city of Apeldoorn - hence the catchphrase "Even Apeldoorn bellen..." (Better Call Apeldoorn...) you will notice in some of the ads.

Acupuncture | Concrete | Gliders | Cleaning Ladies | Bill Clinton | Joyriding (Clue: the two men are prominent Dutch lawyers) | Rio | Ladder (Clue: the main character used to host a candid camera show)


And a few others... The first one is for a brand of peanut butter.

Soccer Boy (Clue: the man in the ad is Dutch soccer coach Dick Advocaat, in charge of the Dutch National Team at that time)

This one's pretty self explanatory, I guess...

Hot Dawg

I can believe it.  My brother lives and works in the US, and he tells me stories of similar people.  It's like they think Canadians are from some other world LOL

You got that right, Howard. It's meant to make you think - or think again. Just like that TLC video "Unpretty".

Back with a classic...


You Know When You've Been Tango'd

Easy to see why this ad was banned and replaced with similar, milder versions (a kiss by the orange man, and one where the guy sprints away after spotting the orange man).


I was looking for the one where they shout "Oranges!!!", though... :-\\

Modified to add:
I still can't find that one. Must've been banned pretty quickly.
I remember it was set at a railway (or subway) station, and it featured the orange man as well.
