The narration sound like it belongs in a carnival. Yeah, the macaroni side effects were pretty good.

Here's one that must have run in the US first and then in Canada in 2007. A friend of mine said that the eagle looks like a mutant groundhog.

I thought the Kmart-Joe Boxer ad for Christmas was vulgar and in poor taste.

I did like it when the Hershey holiday kisses did essentially the same commercial, what does that tell ya!

You too? All I kept thinking every time it came on was, "what if there are small children in the room when that came on." It was beyond poor taste. It bordered on soft porn. And yes, I am a prude and proud to say so! I am also a parent and grand mother.

Hershey hit a home run with the Kisses ad. It is why it is shown every year. They have stayed with a winner. A definite homerun. I used to also like the Norelco Shaver one.

I thought that the Kmart, Joe Boxer commercial was funny. Heck they were wearing far more than any Victoria's Secret model in any of their commercials. Heck I've seen more racy stuff on soap operas and prime time TV shows! To each their own, I guess.

The ad agency got people talking about Joe Boxer and Kmart, so I guess they did what they set out to do!

I don't remeber ever seeing that commercial. Your friend was right, all I saw was a winged hedgehog!

I'm not crazy about the Toyota commercials featuring "Jan" the receptionist. They're trying to be funny, but always seem to fall flat. Not the fault of the actress playing Jan, who seems likable enough. Just bad writing.

Commercials I like? I'd have to think about that one a bit. There are some I like, but nothing springs immediately to mind.

The Michael Bolton Honda ads send me to the mute button. Could they be more awkward? Really, Michael Bolton singing on the roof of an SUV or popping up singing in your back seat unannounced makes you want to buy a car?

Although I don't remember which frozen veggie commercial it is, I like the one where they're at the waterfall and Mama Bear is telling the kids what's for supper. Big o' Papa Bear (whose voice is that???) yells that he loves that. Makes me laugh every time.
