One where an old lady posts "leaving for Hawaii tomorrow!"

instantly there's a response by a guy wearing a ski mask in his avatar "have a safe trip"

cracks me up like crazy

Even if you don't watch the ad, I'm sure you can tell what's going on here based on the screen shot and the title of the video.

Still can't believe the CoD people made an ad based on that. :lol:

The commercial for red wing boots where someone mixes up the lighting globes with the fan blades...when you feet hurt, your work suffers.

I like the Allstate "Mayhem" commercials. Such good deadpan delivery in crazy situations.

I don't identify with foreign car brands at all, but I can really get behind these Honda ads with Michael Bolton spreading power ballad Christmas cheer

I hate Apple with a bizarre passion. But their advertising has always been top notch. The current one for the iPad Air - that focuses on the pencil - is absolutely brilliant.

Advertising is not about selling products, it's about selling a lifestyle and associating your product (usually not until near the end of the ad) with that lifestyle. That iPad Air ad hits it out of the park.

If anybody on here find out who the girl in the red dress is on the Adam & Eve ads that Comedy Central shows 100 + times a night it would be greatly appreciated.

Creepy..... just opened this thread to post the Caddy ad, and this very commercial was on during the intermission of the CAN-US game. :shock:

Made me think it was on autoplay or something for a second.

Funny...... just read a HuffPo article about how this is like the worst commercial in the history of Homo sapiens because it glorifies materialism.

Hello..... it's a Cadillac commercial.

Besides, I didn't really get that from this spot. I felt it was much more rah-rah "'MURICA" than "yay, capitalism!"

It just sounds great on a decent home theater system.
