    This Guinness commercial is one of my favorites of all time.

    K-mart has been doing great with their advertising recently. Clever spots that spark conversation both good and bad. Any publicity is good publicity! But, unfortunately for them, their target demographic is not going to be spurred to action based on these and I'm not sure they'll gain new customers from them either.
    I just saw this one the first time last night. I loved it & thought it was hysterical, and I haven't been called young or hip for many years. In fact, I can be a bit of a stick-in-the-mud.
    I was in K-Mart today & thought of it & made a point of going to the Joe Boxer section to buy something. They do make good stuff.

    I don't know why exactly, but the Hulu Plus commercial with the boss lady and her boy toy cracks me up every single time I see it.

    Re: Commercials I love

    I like the KFC commercials where the "Dad" has two older men on each side of him on the couch. The old men start arguing with each other so he hands them both a chicken leg and they immediately shut up and start eating. Then it ends with "Dad" between two little boys. They start arguing and he hands them both a cookie. If only it worked that well. My family still finds a way to criticize even with their mouth full.

    Folgers has another new holiday commercial this year. Thank goodness. The one they've been using the last few years kind of creeped me out. lol
    Their best one was where the boy comes home from college and his little sister meets him at the door and tells him everyone is sleeping. He says they should let them sleep. They make a pot of coffe, mom and dad come in and mom says, "Peter!". Really tugs at the heart string.
    Then they started using one in the same context but the sister was older. There was something about the actors that creeped me out. It seemed like they were flirting rather then sibling banter. I haven't liked it and am glad they got a new one this year.
    In the new one grandma wakes up with the baby. She makes coffee and then starts reminiscing with the baby about past Christmases. Her smoking hot son wakes up, grabs a cup of coffee, and finds her and the baby and thanks her for the coffee. As a grandmother it kind of tugs at the heart strings. As a woman I appreciate that the grandmother produced such a fine looking offspring. I like this new one better then the old one but it still lacks the emotion of, "Peter!"

    I'm getting a big kick out of the Walmart mom commercial. The one where she can't wait for Christmas and even opens her kids eyes because she is so excited for him to see his gifts. She reminds me of me when my son was young, except the eye opening thing. I used to get so excited to see him open his gifts and I could be so impatient in having to wait for everyone else to sit down and get ready.

    Re: Commercials I love

    This isn't a commercial I love, but rather one I would love to go away. It's actually a series of commercials.
    Kids are going to see a Mall Santa, but instead of acting childlike & telling Santa their list, they are smart mouth, entitled brats. They get lippy with Santa & tell him they don't have time for this, like they're talking down to him, & want some expensive powerful cars or trucks & tell him where to leave it & then trot off as if their time is way to important for this.
    What I'd love to see is Santa saying "You get NOTHING! You little brat."

    It's for some auto company, I think. By the time they get to that I'm so disgusted that I'm not paying attention to who it's for.
    I suppose I should so I can avoid that company like the plague & never buy a thing from them.
    Awful, just awful.

    Yes! I was just complaining about those commercials to my husband this morning. I can't stand for any child to get smart with any adult in a commercial or on tv. Same reason I can't stand the Lily character on Modern Family.

    It's been a while since I've seen my camel commercial, and I am missing it! Camel withdrawal.

    Last night I saw this charming commercial for Netflix and it was told from the viewpoint of a Christmas Angel decoration that has been sitting on top of this family's tree year after year.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYzTeWf3nOQ
