My current favorite commercial because, well, you've seen the picture of my guys Tyson, Orange Julius, Tyrone Shoelaces, and Mr. Spock hanging out on the bed with Sebastien Corbetti, right?

The Coors beer commercial with the Saint Bernards made me laugh every time it came on. Over 50 Saints have passed through our lives because of my involvement in Saint rescue. I could picture Saints who passed through our lives doing that.

Now I really like the Darth Vader/VW ad.
This one wins for me as well as my DH! We just love it! I still buy the product for my "kids" pictured in my avitar.

The Darth Vader ad makes us stop whatever we are doing to watch it, it's fantastic. What a cool Dad!

The old Lifesaver add with the sun setting and the little kid says, "Do it again, Daddy."

It is great to see someone portrayed as a great dad. Too often people are portrayed as terrible parents and kids in charge. It's kind of a pet peeve of mine. I don't like seeing the dad look stupid, the mom looking like a witch and the children looking like they are the only smart ones in the room. The Darth Vator commercial is fantastic!

+1 chopper. i can't stand ads that make parents look dumb. or when men are made to look like complete idiots and the wife or gf just laughs at them or treats them like a child.

i also can't stand all of those viagara commercials. a bunch of 55 year old male models in a rock band, or fixing an old car? gimme a break. at least they should look like they know how to play the instruments, or use a too.

i probably watch more commercials than anyone here.

i like the hanes socks commercial for one reason and one reason only--to hear the father say "i'm sick of it" and have the young son parrot the phrase (as young boys will) - "SIKKovITT!!"--i listen for this little gem every time.... :)

I am against all political/election commercials and all shock commercials for things like smoking and animal abuse.

The commercial I have always liked above all others is the Campbell's soup commercial with the little boy inside of a snowman that melts away as he eats his soup.

Makes me think of cream of tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwiches on a cold winter day.
