    I loved the one where someone says, Australian? I thought you were English? Or South African? and the gecko says, ummmm and you don't find out!

    The new at&t commercial where the kids are in the den, Dad's in the kitchen cooking, the brother starts out playing a rock song intro, sister joins with second part, little brother joins with the third part...you hear a high pitched clang, clang, clang in the background. The kids look up and Dad is standing in the kitchen doorway banging on a skillet with a wooden spoon. The facial expressions on the kid's and Dad's faces are priceless.

    inthegarden - the only thing that annoys me about that commercial is that the likelihood of a bunch of today's tweens not just being aware of, but voluntarily playing a classic rock song like Smoke on the Water is fairly slim to none.

    PWS & phroshay - it's funny you guys mention the accent. My Dad hates that gecko with the fire of a thousand suns. Mainly the reason being is he feels that the spokes-thing for the Government Employees Insurance Company should sound like they are at least American.


    Saw the best commercial today for Audi - Spock vs Spock. Awesome and hilarious. Google it. You won't be disappointed.

    Audi - Spock vs. Spock was hilarious. Thanks for the nod.

    Just watched it. BEST commercial ever! Somehow I found the best part was the real Spock singing in his car... if you can take a Spock vs. Spock situation and somehow infuse a Bilbo song. Holy crap. That's nerd stuff heaven.

    The part that made me laugh the most loudly was the Vulcan nerve pinch.
    Go, old Spock!

    I love the State Farm commercial where the mother is conversing with the agent, and the mime comes up and starts talking to them. The look on that baby's face is PRICELESS!!! The look is better than when the baby starts talking about the strangeness of the mime!
