Best/Favourite Commercials of all time
« on: May 13, 2010, 12:04:09 am »
Sometimes you just see an ad and love it so much you could watch it over and over again and enjoy it more than the show it interrupts. I'm sure we've all got a few that are either funny, or clever or just plain impressive.

Here's one of my all time favourites, brilliant idea and execution
Golf GTi: Singing in the Rain

Here's one that's just plain funny:
Carlton Draught: Made from Beer
[youtube:18hxlm48]Mj-z-BbvlHs[/youtube:18hxlm48]

From the same brewers, very impressive and funny ad:
Carlton Draught: Big Ad
[youtube:18hxlm48]eH3GH7Pn_eA[/youtube:18hxlm48]

Here's one I don't personally like all that much, but it's considered one of hte best ever made. Even though it's not a personal favourite I do think it's very good and well made, and fits the brand perfectly.
Guinness: He Waits

Another of my favourites some great stunt work.
Rexona: Over the top protection

I LOVE anything made by Robert Abel & Associates. They were wonderful special effects wizards for their time. They were one of the studios that did special effects for the original "TRON" movie.

A demo reel containing many of their early 1980's commercials.

My favorite of their 7UP ads.

A quick collection of their logos.

Their first ad for 7UP - the one that really put them on the map.

A nice, surreal Levi's ad.

Another Levi's ad that I find to be very nice.

I could probably think of a ton more, but I could not find my favorite one (an N-Gage commercial, of all things), so  :x

It might not the best commercial, per say, but I was always a sucker for these soaker ads with the crazed drill sergeant. Liked the slogan: "Wetter is better"!

I personally think Benicio Del Toro is a bit of a douchebag, but this Bryan Singer-directed commercial was killer.

Back when my buddies and me used to watch Monday Night RAW on Friday, this was one of my favorite commercials.
