Speaking of Heineken commercials, I like the one where the guy is sitting on the sofa and his girlfriend is asleep on his arm. He can't reach the beer in his hand so he tells her he loves her and, as she turns towards him to cuddle, he can reach his beer!

I love the gecko, the cavemen, and the cows.

I recently saw one that had me laughing so hard that, when I was telling someone about it, they couldn't understand me.

It was Kmart commercial where a bunch of people were at a backyard cookout, their dinner plates in hand, but there was no furniture to sit on. One guy tries to carefully sit down on the ground, but falls over, and his dinner goes all over his head! His buddies are all looking down at him, potato salad all over his head, and they all go, "Awwwwww". LOL! I'm laughing as I type this!

Anyway, I only saw the commercial once and now I can't find any info about it. I'd love to have a clip of it.

I AM MAN! I love this commercial, it wasn't aired enough. I don't see why they needed to diss quiche though.

I absolutely love the identity theft ones that were mentioned, as well as the happy cow commercials. In fact, I love most of the ones already mentioned! Hallmark card commercials are some of my favorites--they always make me cry! The old (probably 20 years, or more, ago) "Reach out and touch someone" commercials made me cry too.

As far as billboard and radio ads, Chik-Fila has some of the funniest around.

Here's another favorite of mine. I think it was originally aired during a Super Bowl.
