Subject: Memorable TV Commercials

Written By: whistledog on 03/09/13 at 7:29 pm

Inspired by AL-B's beer commercial in the PPP, I got thinking about TV Commercials that are memorable.  What are some?


There's one that will forever stick in my mind because it was the first time I ever watched a commercial and was left with a frightened stare.  I don't think anyone who ever saw this one will forget it

Yikes, I'm surprised they aired that on TV, it's quite graphic.

I don't know but I've always liked this ad:
