I love the Arby's where the monkeys do the Irish dancing and the people are to busy staring at their sandwiches to notice. It's priceless!

Happily shopping the Pensacola, Destin area and all of the beautiful Emerald Coast of Florida.

Hey Marie
I like that version too but my favorite is the one where the little Asian girl is crying and her grandfather asks what's wrong? She tell hime that Mom won't take them to Baskins-Robbins because she got a F on her math paper. Grandpa changes that F to an A and tells the child "Meet ya in the car." Priceless. Yeah for grandpa.

I love the new commercial where the guys are tailgating. And one guy is painting the other's chest. The guy asked can he do it any faster, and he responds No. All over the parking lot, others are getting their bodies painted super fast. I just love this commercial. I can't think what the advertisment is for. Maybe high speed internet? It is funny.

I really like the Jeep Liberty commercial where the man driving the vehicle is singing " Rock Me Gently " and the animals in the vehicle
start singing with him.

The Manning commercial with Peyton and Eli when their dad is out in the backyard with "Matty" LOL! Really any with Peyton in it. I really like the ones from last year, I think it was Visa when he was in the coffee shop and the guy gets steam in his eyes, falls down, and Peyton tells him to "rub a little dirt on it" or They aren't saying "Boooo" they are saying "Mooovers" while the guys are moving furniture.

Milwaukee's Best Light beer commercials are my favorites.
"The Dog" and "The Trampoline" are some of the best.

My new favorite is the Kia Motors one where the car salesman does the "Flashdance" dance to the tune of "Maniac"... complete with him leaping over a car... and at the end, another sales rep dumps a bucket of water over his head... (My kids like this one and they don't even get the joke...)

Well me I'm in between places right now waiting to buy a house. I don't have a TV in My Room and I don't watch much TV on the TV in the living room. I am pretty much in my room. But I do watch TV shows News and ect on my computer. Some of the shows I watch are on www.abc.com, www.cbs.com, www.nbc.com & www.fox.com and they have a few commercials in them. I like the one they had were you could throw snow balls. They were at first Booorrring but now they are becoming more entertaining. Oh and I like the one for the Royal Cruise Line that you mouse over the huge water slide and it gives you a view like you are going down the slide. Pretty Cool.

I'm with Corrie - I love the Kia Flashdance commercial. I also think the Starburst "Berries and Creme" commercial is hysterical. You can see it on youtube.

from AnitaTNshopper:
quote:
Has anybody seen the Arbys commerical where the guy asks the cashier to explain the 5 for $5 deal. He then repeats the items into the phone, and then he closes the phone and says (seemingly) to the cashier "I love you".

This commercial kills me because #1 why can't he read the menu and see the 5 for $5 items for himself? #2 Does he really need to be in the line ready to order on a cell phone? #3 How does he expect the person on the other end to 'hear' him say "I love you" when he has clearly closed the phone. Sure it is a little off that the cashier would return his I love you... BUT he is clearly saying it to her.

I know that most people don't watch commericals anymore, but I still enjoy some commericals.

I love Arby's! We just got our second one here last month...Yeah! This one is on my side of town.

But, I haven't seen any commercials yet. I guess we are so small (just over 100,000) that word-of-mouth gets the job done for them. I know they are always crowded when I go there.

"I love" that Arbys commercial too.

I like the "alltel" phone commercial, with "Chad" and the kids at the amusement park , "Trying to save money, for cell phone bills"...

although, I'm getting quite tired of that cheesy "glade" woman tryin' to impress everyone with her "designer" scented home...

Something simple to look forward to.....freebies

I love the rivalry between the Verizon FIOS guy and the Cable guy, especially the one where the Cable guy pushes all the elevator buttons at once...

Someone mentioned not liking the FreeCreditReport singers. I like those ads, but the service is more or less a scam (for actual FREE credit reports, no strings attached, go to http://www.annualcreditreport.com )

I really like the one with the despondent large sized dog and the loving caring best friend Jack Russell (I think) who wants to make his larger friend happy. He swipes a soccer ball from kids, & he brings all kinds of toys to try to get the pooch to get up and go. No luck. Finally, he digs up his very special hidden bone and brings it to his 'pal.' The friend is up and lively!

Don't ask what this is for. I only watch the dogs!! But it is priceless.

It must be popular, this commercial still plays in the Chicago area.

There's a Minute Maid commercial I absolutely love...a girl on an escalator says to a guy, "Excuse me I think you are the father of one of my kids" and he thinks for a second and says something like "oh...cancun, spring break 99..." and she's like "No!" and then the announcer cuts in and says "Oops, looks like somebody forgot to boost" and they flash to him drinking the juice and when the girl makes the comment this time he says, "Oh! My daughter is in your art class, Sister Mary Catherine!"

I'm not doing it justice, its so cute...here's a link

Another doggy commercial that is first rate is the one with the shaggy dog who has a bone to hide. He thinks of various places but worries that a passing cat or a bulldog might want it and steal it. He goes to great lengths to hid it, even taking a bus and going to the bank to store it in a vault. Then he has nightmares about some animal stealing it. Finally he takes it out of the vault and goes home. The commercial is for the insurance company with the big red umbrella logo. It is priceless.

Oh and the one for Toby and Stanley Steamer is gross!

It's funny that we often don't remember what the commercial is for.

There is a really cute one with a cartoon chicken and egg debating who's first. Don't know what it's for, though.

"Keith Stone" is entertaining in a stupid way, "Here hold my stones" cracked me up.

I am really impressed with most of the Geico commercials. My text message alert is the "Hey you dang woodchucks, quit chucking my wood"

But my favorite commercial now is the Geico commercial with Foghorn Leghorn, where he is reciting War and Peace..."It was the best of times, it was I say it was the worst of times...."

Call me crazy, but I LOVE resets!
Yes, even cosmetic resets.
