    Re: Commercials I love

    For the first time in years, I actually do love a commercial enough to stop fast forwarding the VCR when I encounter it in the blur between shows - the Discovery Channel's "I Love the Whole World". If you haven't seen it and the link doesn't work, it is really easy to google because apparently it is loved by many, many people.

    DiscoveryChannel.ca - I love the whole world...it's such a crazy place...

    Well, that is a song that I never thought I would hear again. One of the nuns in my high school used to make us sing that stupid "Boom-de-ah-dah" song at the beginning of our class....everyday. The difference was that we had to sing, "I love the flowers, I love the daffodils, etc." The nun was a true ditz, too, by the way. What a memory!

    I love the 'Don't Be A Patsy' commercials that Drug Free America have been playing. They make me laugh and they get their point across. Much more effective than the usual, 'talk to your kids about drugs' ads.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I love the back to school "priceless" commercial. The song "We want the funk" is playing and a little boy is danceing to it and the announcer says "Backpack $20", then another little boy walks up to the first and starts dancing and then another little boy. All three are just so cute doing their funky little dance. The announcer says, "Being back with people who understand you, priceless." The three start dancing their way to school. It is soooo cute. And so accurate in the way little boys that age act with each other. Most of the time words aren't needed to communicate.

    I just love that commercial. The little boys dancing is really cute.

    Ahhhh - a girl scout camp memory... "I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills, I love the flowers, I love the daffodils, I love the fireside when all the lights are low. Boom de ah dah, boom de ah dah, boom de ah dah, boom, boom" (It's a round)
    Count your blessings!

    i like the one where we see that Hell has frozen over and the Devil is upset. His coffee is frozen and he has this fireplace poker in his hand as he says, 'there goes poker night'.
