The one where the Dunkin’ Donuts guy dresses like a women to find out information about his competitor. And he had to cover his mustache with his finger.

And Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef?”

The entire series of Geico caveman commercials. Especially the one where he’s riding the escalator holding a tennis racket.

Back in the 80’s Alaska Airlines used to have these commercials about how they didn’t charge people to use the bathroom. The setting for the commercial was a guy desperately looking for 50 cents to get into the bathroom on the plane and he was offering like 20.00 in exchange for just 50 cents…. sounds dumb I know, but if you saw them you would laugh.

May not be my all-time favorite, but I thoroughly enjoy the new Old Spice commercials.

@FutureMemory Can’t forget the original Gecko ones too! Those were actually funny.

My faves are all the ones I did in my advertising career. Every one I wrote and produced has a piece of myself in it.

I’ve always liked the old Cadbury’s Flake adverts… and the Milk Tray adverts were classics too :-)

@mammal That was beautiful! A two-part-pour in action. I never get to see that here in America. Brings a tear to me eye.

OldSpice commercials. Though, Lately I keep seeing this snickers one for Halloween, where these kids are dressed up as this giant creepy old lady and start putting packages of snickers in some poor lady’s cart, frightening her. It’s delightfully creepy.

EDIT I found it on youtube

I love Aflac commercials. Something about that duck is adorable.

erichw1504's avatar

@Frenchfry The new one with Guy Fieri where the duck sticks his head in the jalapeno jar is pretty funny.

Frenchfry's avatar

@erichw1504 I see if I can find it on youtube. Hold on. Hee hee

I love the E*Trade baby, especially when he hires a clown.

@Frenchfry I know, I master in the art of web surfing.

I still love the original Beggin’ Bits commercial.

“Bacon? Bacon? I smell bacon. Only one thing smells like bacon and that’s bacon! Bacon…bacon…bacon…bacon…THERE! On the bag, what’s it say? I can’t read!! Please, please gimme what’s in the bag…. chewy, yummy, smoky bacon!”

My favorite commercial makes me cry every time I watch it. I understand that it only aired once right after 9–11 and you can see it here

deni's avatar

@Kayak8 that was lovely.

Kayak8's avatar

@deni I am not kidding, I cry every time I watch it . . . .

I don’t pay attention to commercials. I do, however, notice when someone doesn’t know the difference in your and you’re.

“Where is the beef?” Anyone remember that one! Some of you young folks need to watch this….hilarious!

That one I saw while watching Red Sox a few years ago. A guy does the ” I’ll take the stairs” routine” behind the couch and impresses all these women. Another guy decides to try it but falls because there is actually a staircase behind the couch. I think it’s a beer ad.

erichw1504's avatar

I actually think this one is hilarious:

I laugh every time he gets hit with the one that explodes in his face.

erichw1504's avatar

The Nationpam commercial is hilarious!

Also, the Mayhem commercials for Allstate are great.

The Heinekin “male bonding incident” commercial that aired back around 2000.
