    I don't like ads in general unless they're of a movie or video game I like.

    There was one ages ago that had a baby with a pizza. It was for Domino's, I think. The narrator was saying the pizza is good for everyone, excpet babies. In the meantime, the baby pulled a pepperoni from the pizza, and the rest of the pie was taken away. Then a hand pulled the pepperoni away and the narrator said that pepperoni isn't for babies either, just as the baby broke into tears. Gawd I loved that.

    Then there was the Spike TV commercial that had a bunch of hotties swimming in bikinis and such, with appropriate slo-motion used. There was a guy grilling, just watching, and another guy cutting the hedges and staring all open-mouthed and awe-struck. One of the girls came over to the grill guy looking all fine, took a burger and said "thanks daddy". The ogler turned slowly to the grill guy who was staring at him and sunk down behind the hedge.
    Priceless.

    For the most part, despite a couple of stinkers, Geico commercials are usually a safe bet. Their new "playing possum" one is particularly awesome.

    The new "Cutting Corners" Rona commercials are excellent as well.

    But my top vote goes to Direct TV for their "Don't..." commercial series of fantastical scenarios that play out if your cable goes out. Absolutely genius.

    I hate most advertising, but there are some ads I find entertaining. I agree that Geico ads tend to be pretty good, and I often like Super Bowl ads. Perhaps the funniest one I've ever seen was that one with Ozzy Osbourne and Justin Bieber making fun of himself. I can't remember what they were trying to sell, though.

    The DirectTV commercials that give you an informative summary on what's going to happen if you don't drop cable. :lol 

    Also the Allstate commercials with the Mayhem dude. Those are great.

    "Simples, *squeak*"... That's how you do a mascot for an insurance site.

    - Geico's "playing possum" ad

    - DirectTV's delightfully bizarre commercials detailing the consequences of having cable

    - Progressive's commercial with the guy attempting to put a cat and a model rocket in the Bundler

    - "The Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials. Can't remember what brand of beer they were advertising, though

    - DJ Steve Porter's ShamWow Jam and RapChop remix ads

    - Burger King's ads with "The King"

    The only TV commercials I give a hoot about are the ones that air during the super bowl.

    Allstate Mayhem is number one. Also the Mio commercials in the office that "change everything."
