We all have seen that one rediculous commercial that just kind of sticks in our heads for ever!! For me ( until recently) was the "Somebody help us, we're stuck on an escallator!!!" Becel commercial
Now however it is hands down the Bibliotheque one ( I still have no idea what its about, something to do with baguettes, I cant stop laffing long enough to pay attention to the product or company LOL)
SO whats yours???????

I'm getting a good laugh from the "Hands in your pocket" credit card commercials just now-truly absurd. But I like the baguette one, too.

I love the Becel one. There was a joke about Britney Spears being stuck on an escalator for 2 hours during a power failure... :D

And for some strange reason, I love the hands in my pocket song... :o

I hate to say it, but the commercials for a certain unnamed pet company with the doggies being doggies, and that's why we love them always gets me (even though, truthfully, they don't get doggies at all.)

Does everyone remember the Jamaica commericals with the song "Hands Up"? Man, that still gets stuck in my head!

I love the Becel and the "Hands" commercials. But I recently saw a french commercial (E-Mailed to me by a friend) A little boy runs amuck in a grocerie store and it ends with the words "USE A CONCOM". Having boys who "ran amuck" in their younger years I just about split a gut watching this one.

Those are the ones advertising "Life Lessons" on TLC.

That becel one just cracks me up as well.

The "Honey we're ruining the kids" commercials from TLC make me howl, but then again so does the most recent Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper one with the Muppets and the manamanum song :p

Hands in my pockets is so catchy! I like the becel commercials too.

Now what commercial is the one where one guy speaks french and the other doesnt and it looks like they are in heaven or something and one guy responds to the other Oui Oui and the other says oh your trying french or something like that and then the other who said Oui Oui said no I just have to go... And they both start laughing. (sorry bad run on sentence)

I could not stop laughing at that commercial the first time I saw it. Is it for Philly cream cheese or something b/c I think one or both were angels.

I love the K9 Advantix commercials. Here is a link:

http://www.k9advantix.com/Commercials.asp

The camp one works, but the Ain't no bugs on me one (to the left of the screen) doesn't work, but I did see it on TV and it's so much cuter than the camp one. I just love them.

Actually, any commercial done with animals is always way better than most human ones.:highfive: :thumbs up

They're usually funny and very entertaining.:crazy:

Not many people have seen this commercial (ive only seen it twice) but theres this one of this guy acting like a cat, and when his wife comes home he says "did you bring home any meat" then "talk to me when theres meat on the table" and all his gestures are like a cats (sorry im bad at explaining things!) but anyways its such a funny commercial... anyone else seen it?

April 25th, 2006, 05:01 PM
oh, ya I saw it. And it says "only a cat can be a cat"... I think it's for whiskas. That guy is pretty skilled at landing on the sofa arm with both feet...

I love the TLC life lessons one.. It's a bit graphic (like the one with no arms?) but it's still funny.

Oh, Luvmypit, you reminded me of the baguette commercial where the guy is speaking very, very basic French and the English subtitles are all elaborate and aren't at all what he's saying...

I would like to see the out takes for that one!! There also is the one now with the guy running all around the house and clings on to the drapes and they fall down, its for Whiskas kitten food!

baguette commercial where the guy is speaking very, very basic French and the English subtitles are all elaborate and aren't at all what he's saying... I figured it had to do with Baguettes!!! LOL, thats my "mmmm biblitotheque" one!! I love it!!!!

gosh. I hate commercials, but I love watching the "clip" awards. It is some new zealand awards show that awards commercials from across the world. I have one somewhere on my computer from europe for Volkswagon. It is of a volkswagon eating a cat or something weird.

I was searching for funny commercials, and somehow came across this newscast from like 1970 where some people in Oregon didn't know what to do with a whale that washed ashore, so they decided to explode it!! ** warning - somewhat graphic content **

Oh.. here is the one. It's for Ford not Volkswagon.

Oh, and there is the Volkswago Polo suicide bomber one:

Personally, I loved the "wassup" bud commercials. http://giesbers.net/video/p6.php

Yo quiro taco bell anyone??

Ok, this is my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE commercial ever:

The baguette one cracks me up every time. It's for President's Choice foods, I believe. The guy is walking along, talking all sorts of nonsense you'd hear on a "learn French while you sleep" cassette, while the subtitles are saying something completely different.

A recent commercial that I found more than a little disturbing: I believe it was for a washing machine or laundry detergent. There's a woman preparing to do laundry by the side of an arctic lake (must be one heck of an extension cord), and a bunch of white t-shirts with long black sleeves are waddling along the opposite shore like headless penguins. The headless penguins all dive into the lake and start swimming towards her. Quite scary, actually. :eek:

so cuuuuuuuute! always loved the curly angel... specially the ones with her "man-servant"!! :p :p

A friend in France sent me a commercial from Norway that was just hilarious. I think it was advertising a thermal-go-cup. This guy comes out of his office on a blustery winter night, cars are covered in snow and he doesn't have a scraper. They show him stepping in the snow and using his briefcase to push snow off the windshield, rubbing his sleeve across ita nd scraping his side view mirror with his keys. At one point he slips and falls. You can just commiserate with the poor guy because we've all had soemthing like that happen.

He finally gets the car cleared off and he hits his key fob to unlock the doors and you hear the little electronic beeps and see the lights flash--ON THE CAR JUST IN FRONT OF THE ONE HE CLEANED !!!

Hmmm...other than that I have to think. There are some I like but can't think of them now.

I love the WaMu (Washington Mutual) commercials. They are the ones with the stuffy guys in suits who work in "another" financial institution and the narrator asks them how they feel about providing free banking services. Of course they laugh at every question. The narrator keeps trying to tempt them with exotic food and money to (I think) encourage them to adapt to the "WaMu way." There are 3 different ones that I have seen and they are all equally funny.

I really like commercials that make a bigger statement while still trying to sell a product.

Like the pedigree ones... "we're for shelter dogs". Personally, I choose to feed a different brand of food, but I think their commercials make a great statement about dogs in need of homes.

another great one is the Dove self esteem commercial, with the little girls. "hates her freckles - thinks she's fat - wishes she was blonde...." again, makes a great statement.

I do, however, thoroughly enjoy the VW catapult commerical. Only because I visualize it being my own car catapulted....

I gotta admit, I'm a huge fan of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty. They've stopped using models for their ads and commercial and just get regualr people off the street. I think it sends a good message to young girls. I love it. What a great idea!

Mee too. I don't like the parent company, but I think it's a great idea. We're so dumb to listen to what they keep telling us to look like though- either way.

Honda Commercial



Scroll to the end and click on hyperlink after reading all the following:

And you thought those people that set up rooms full of dominos to knock over were amazing.

There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it. The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again. The crew spent weeks shooting all day and night.
By the time it was over, they were ready to change professions. The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete including full
engineering of the sequence.

In addition, it's two minutes long so every time Honda airs the film on British television, they're shelling out enough dough to keep any one of us
in clover for a lifetime.

However, it is fast becoming the most downloaded advertisement in Internet history. Honda executives figure the ad will soon pay for itself simply in "free viewings" (Honda isn't paying a dime to have you watch this commercial!).

When the ad was pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it immediately without any hesitation - including the costs.

There are six and only six hand-made Honda Accords in the world. To the horror of Honda engineers, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the film.

Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and complete Honda Accord) is parts from those two cars.

The voiceover is Garrison Keillor. When the ad was shown to Honda executives, they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics
have gotten. They fell off their chairs when they found out it was for real.

Oh, and about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing their thing automatically as soon as they become wet. It looks a bit weird in the commercial.

The other Pepsi comm. music is "hot blooded" where the guy envisions wearing his skin-tight blue jeans from 20 yrs. ago and has a business meeting with a couple but cannot sit properly in his leather chair and slides onto the floor, all the while trying to look cool, the couple's (especially) the man's expression is hilarious. Gets me every time.
