I don't know if this commercial is shown in all parts of the country but, there's one for "Duluth Trading Company" about "Ball Room" Jeans.  LMFAO!!!!  It's hysterical!  It's like a cartoon and shows this big, burly guy in a pair of regular jeans and when he squats he starts to "sing," only his voice is like a soprano.  Then they depict him in Duluth Trading's Ball Room Jeans.  He squats once more and "sings," now sounding more like a baritone.

I think my favorite is for Iams dog food.  It stars a black lab, who narrates the story, which is shot from his perspective.  He's remembering when he and his master found "it", that wonderful, "roll-a-round" thing, while they were on a "walk, walk, walk".   He says he'll never let it go because it "made you (his master) smile.  (The thing was a tennis ball.)   :dog:  :star::heart:

I love the York's Peppermint Patty commercial; it hasn't been on in a while. There is an old man eating a peppermint patty and someone asked him what sensation he got when he ate one. He started laughing and said I'm just glad I get a sensation! Every time I see that one it just cracks me up!!! :wave:

No, I really don't. I tend to really dislike commercials.

There was one a few years ago though, a super bowl commercial i think, that was cowboys herding cats. It was pretty good.

There was one a few years ago though, a super bowl commercial i think, that was cowboys herding cats. It was pretty good.

That commercial was way long ago - that was an old EDS commercial.  I know because I was working for them when the campaign came out.  Over 3 years, they did 3 commercials for the Superbowl.  The "cat herding" one was by far the best.  My second favorite in the trio was the "running with the squirrels" that came out the next Superbowl.

As for my "favorite" commercial - as I collect them to take notes on them for an annual trivia contest, I have many.  Probably mine was an old Bud Light commercial where just after Superbowl kickoff, you see an entire city go dark - power outage.  You follow a maintenance guy running through the under-city tunnels and bursts into a room.  Runs over to a refrigerator, and places something gently on a pedestal under a light.  You see him slowly turn a turntable rotating the bottle of what is revealed to be a bottle of Bud Light.  Then the blurry image in the foreground comes into focus to reveal a hamster in a wheel.  When the hamster see the Bud Light, it starts to run, then we see the city lights come on - thus everyone can watch the Superbowl.

I've also been recalling the old Bud Light sinister penguin commercials (doo-be-doo-be-dooo) - loved that campaign.

I love the Geico hump day one with the camel.  It is quite funny.  Actually, I love the gecko, and most of the commercials associated with Geico. ;D

Thanks, I was about to post in saying the same thing. The Aflac duck with Guy Fieri as well.  But as far as all time favorite I will always remember the old Wendy's "Where's the Beef?"  That was the all time best ever!!!!
