Smile National TV Ads You Like - Chapter 2

I love the one for Kia Sorrento that has the creepy sock monkey and other toys singing "How you like me now?" catchy song, cute concept!

I like the Old Spice commercials - the technology involved in getting the one,long continuous shot is amazing.

Amazing indeed. I'd love to see a comprehensive "making of/behind the scenes" of those spots.

I saw something like that about the first commercial. The guys at the ad agency are very young.

So much creativity oozes out of the ad agency youngsters! They haven't yet learned that it (whatever "it" might be) is impossible and can't be done...so they just figure out a way to do it!

I just love the Kaiser Permanente Where Do Babies Come From spot. It appears to me the kids' answers are unscripted. So cute, esp. some of their expressions.

Anyone wanna comment on by the latest Jack in the Box spot - the one where Jack's dad opens the door and asks Jack's mom to call the doctor, because, he says, after looking down below his waist, "It's been more than four hours."

Hilarious - but will it sell the breakfast sandwiches (2 for $3)?

I really like the Alstate Insurance with the burly guy that pretends he's all these different characters...a teenager girl, a jogger, a big-time executive.

**bump**

and another plug for HP - I love their latest commercial with the baby in the walker and "I've got a brand new roller skate" song. I'd love to have the printer and I just think its really cute!

I think it's a Saturn commercial, where you see a little girl sitting in the driver's seat and her Dad cautioning her before handing over the keys.

Love Target's black Friday and 2 day sale spots...all with the same middle age, blond, Beverly Hills type lady. I didn't love the 1st one (she's exercising for the Friday morning rush) 'til after I'd seen it a few times. The 2nd spot where she's first in line and plastered against the glass wall (after practicing that position) made me laugh the first time I saw it. Now, the 3rd spot has her recording sections of a Christmas carol on recordable cards and putting them back on the rack then walking away with a smarmy grin on her face. The casting was spot on. She's great. My guess is the ad agency's creative dept. might've used the Progressive Insurance spots with Flo as a jumping off point then brainstormed from there.

I'm looking forward to Target's Christmas commercials!

ah, TutuSue - you read my mind. I totally love spot #3 - she looks like a total phycho shopper and I love it! Her face when she is making the recordings is classic. I was actually coming on here to post about this spot - you beat me to it

Anapuni, considering the concept's demographics, it'll be interesting to see if the younger HT members like the spot(s) as much as we, ummm, senior members do! Or, if anyone else has even noticed them!

Too cute...the Robitussin spot with the chimp and the smart phone in the cold medications aisle at the drugstore. The chimp is priceless esp. the end scene when he shrugs! I LOVE chimps!

The guys on a roadtrip calling Aretha Franklin in the backseat a diva. The surprise ending of the commercial has Liza Minnelli in the passenger front seat.

Couple of new Capital One Card commericals with the Barbarians on vacation heading to New Orleans and Las Vegas (after being in New York City for Christmas).

The Las Vegas one has the goat speaking up during the wedding of a barbarian and a dance girl when the minister asks "if anyone objects to this wedding" part.

Most of the commercials mentioned had a celebrity as the main focus.

Gary Cole's appearance in this State Farm Insurance commercial reminds me of the role he played in Office Space. That Office Space character is one of the funniest in movies because it was so low keyed.
