    You are correct! It's a commercial for a VW. So funny.

    I just saw this one for the first time this weekend. I LOL'd. The way the dad says it & the look on his face is priceless.

That commercial is totally obnoxious and the noise is offensive.

    That hilarious KFC commercial about "You ate the bones!!" stars comedian Mark Curry. I've never thought he was funny until this commercial!

    I like that one because it is a spoof of the legendary wrestling announcer doing his call, "Let's Get Ready To Rummmmmble!"

    Instead they changed the phrase to "Let's Get Ready To Bunnnndle" and Flo is so fascinated that she forgets to push the Bundle button and misses the announcer giving her physical cues. When she finally hits the button, he collapses and proclaims that he is too old for this. This announcer has parodied his opening call for many years and this was just one more time.

    I found it funny...I guess because I know the background.

    I like the KFC commercial for their chicken nuggets where the father pulls one over on his tween-age daughter. It's the father's deadpan delivery of the punchline that makes it so great.

    Also - this was on MSN this morning. A new Evian commercial where people encounter their reflections as babies. It made me smile

    Pikachu - I guess I have to join you in the OCD thread, because I ALWAYS eat my Triscuits along the grain!!
    You HAVE to eat plain triscuits that way... if you go against the grain they crack up and make a mess! Not sure why that happens less with a topping...

    I think the car might be an Acura (I have an Accord so I think I'd recall that), but I agree, great commercial---I wonder if dads think it is as funny as moms do.

    My new favorite is, I think, advertising orange juice, but it uses that Sunny Day song (I"m in love and it's a sunny day, good day, sunshine, etc.). I love that song, and I love that the singer is not some glamour queen, but a sort of Tina Fey normal looking woman (no doubt some famous singer I never heard of!). Also like the little syncopated clap the dancers do just before they get up and dance.

    Also like the Progressive ads....I especially like the one where Flo and a customer guy who looks like a wet John Stamos are in a pouring rain, and it starts off like some kind of soapy romance film...I'll always be there for you.
    Also really enjoying the Geico ones recently where the gecko is critiquing the commercials as they are being made.
