As I was finishing my theremin puzzle and watching tonight's episode of Law and Order, my favorite commercial came on. It was the one with the elephant tap dancing to Singin' In The Rain. Anybody else have a favorite commercial?

I saw that one for the first time tonight! I thought it was great. I love animal commrecials. My current favorite is for the Honda Element with the crab saying "I like to pinch.", "Maybe little pinch?", "Why no pinch?" etc...

That commercial is one of the few that I actually watch...well, I'm a sucker for any animal commercial, unless it's really dumb. But that elephant dancing! Do you like the Clydesdale ads too? I love the baby and the father winking at him.

I haven't seen the commercial with the winking horse, but it sounds cute. I also get a kick out of some of the kitty litter commericals where they are having a party and they all leave when momma and daddy come home. It always makes me wonder what my 5 babies are up to when me and my husband are away.

I still get a laugh out of the Fedex Superbowl commercial with the cavemen getting stomped by the big dino leg

I get a kick out of the one where the guy in his office cube is trying to toss giant M&Ms up to catch in his mouth....

Perhaps our talented puzzle authors could write a puzzle about cute commercials, and one about stupid commercials.

The one I like is an old one, but I still remember it. It was a super bowl commercial. There's a baby in a baby swing and everytime he swings forward he reaches out and smiles, or something like that. Eventually you see that he is reaching for the McDonald's Fries.

I like the Volkswagon commercials with the weird dude trying to "pimp the rides." I just saw the Fedex caveman commercial last night and bust out laughing.

That wonderful Welsh commercial for "Brains Faggotts" - it's probably funnier if your American.............

My all time favorite commercial was for Roy Rogers fast food, and ran years ago. It was pulled from the air after only a couple of weeks because it made fun of school cafeteria workers. It was a brilliant commercial that essentially told kids that they only had a little bit of time before summer was out and school food would kick in.

My favorite series of commercials is for Staples, and runs every summer. They are the back-to-school ads. My favorite of those is one where Mother forgets to put the school supplies in the car, leaves them on the roof, and as she and the kids drive off, the supplies fly off in the breeze. The kids see this and cheer, but she thinks they are cheering as she tells them how wonderful it will be that they are going to go back and have English and math....

Do I see a theme here????

We really like the Aflac commercial - that duck is funny - but I think my favorite from years back was the Bud - Wise - Er frogs.

I like the Diet Pepsi commercial that ran during the SuperBowl...the one with Jackie Chan...where the agent for Diet Pepsi said that they had to have a stunt the last minute in the commerical they switched the Pepsi can for a Diet Coke can.....I also liked the commericals for Folger's coffee that is shown every year around Christmas....

I LOVE the Clydesdale commercials--my favorite is the one where the foal tries to pull the wagon and his parents push from behind. TOO ADORABLE!!!!

You are so right Fly - I almost cried when I saw that one - maybe some "adult humans" should take a lesson from that commercial.

I also like the Staples ones Big Bird. I like the one where the kids look all sad and depressed and the dad is riding around on the cart. The song It's the most wonderful time of the year is playing during it. Very funny.

The Zellers Xmas commercial where a woman wearing an apron getting everything ready for when her guests arrive = the turkey is ready, the xmas music is playing - all the gifts are wrapped - even dog wearing antlers - she looks around and answers the doorbell we now notice she forgot to put her pants on - she answers the door and under her apron all she is wearing is pantyhose over underwear. Cute (you have to see it)

Right now my favorite is a car commercial - I think it's Dodge - first you see little dogs in other cars looking away as this one drives by - then you see why... the dog in the new car has his rear hanging out the window!

I like the Outback Steak House ad with the Australian guy saying he is Vegetarian...except he eats chicken, and pork, and beef...he's a "part time veg"

Though I don't know what they're selling, I like the one with the really big, fat guy in workout clothes who gets on the scale at the gym and sees the number 240 pounds. The guy stretches, gets a look of determination on his face, puts on his headphones, and jogs once around the gym. Time elapsed...06 seconds.

He comes back to the scale, gets back on and looks at the number. 240 pounds. Then he gives the scale a funny look and taps it a few times, like it's got to be wrong.

Speaking of the dancing elephant in the jungle. I turned on my TiVo the other night and there was a message at the bottom that said, 'Check this out' and it was profile all about the 'Ecoimagination' commercial series. They said to watch it (I guess you have to have a TiVo for this) up to the end and then run it frame by frame until you get to the 'profiles of the stars' - OMG, it is HILARIOUS! Totally worth it!
