The commercial for NFL alumni had a shot of Russ Francis giving the shaka sign of one of the players of the past.

There are several different DirecTV ads that have the theme of because you have cable leads to one event and then cascades to a series of events that something really bad happens to you all because you have cable, then it makes the suggestion that you should switch to DirecTV.

One such commerical has Charlie Sheen in it. I am not a die hard fan of Charlie Sheen but it seems to be the better one of the bunch so far.

The Obama commercial where Romney is singing America the Beautiful with a flat singing voice. It looks like a Letterman bit. The purpose of the ad was to show Romney outsourcing jobs. But, it made Romney look more like a stiff clown than a jerk.

I really like those at&t spots with the guy talking to the kids - what's better? fast or slow? what's better one thing or two?

The guy is terrific, keeps a straight face while the kids - obviously ad libbing - 'say the darndest things,' to pull from another era.

There is a series of Snickers commercials with the theme of everyday people are not themselves and a celebrity is playing that person until they eat a Snickers bar so that they can be themselves again.

The one I liked is Robin Williams being a football coach who says things like "You go out on the field and go after all of the 'O's", "you make balloon animals" and "we are going to win this for Mother Russia".

Wink Re: National TV Ads You Like - Chapter 2

Google's 'Reunion' ad is directed at citizens of India and Pakistan, but its story is universal, in a way:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHGDN9-oFJE

India, Pakistan Agree: Emotional Google Ad a Hit
http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wir...d-hit-20898645
Quote:
"Reunion" portrays two childhood friends, now elderly men, who haven't seen each other since they were separated by the 1947 partition that created India and Pakistan from the old British empire in South Asia. Partition sparked a mass exodus as millions of Muslims and Hindus fled across the new borders amid religious violence.

For the most part I like Michael Bolton but 6 commercials was 5 too many. What an overkill. The campaign wore very thin very quickly...for me.

This 'ad war' happened last year, but I only came across it this week.

Mercedes made this ad to talk about their 'stable' suspension.

A week later, Jaguar responded with this:

The Discover IT card has a couple of commercials' airing where one person is calling the Discover card office asking for some sort of service clarification on the Discover card. One of these commercials feature twin sisters talking to one another but they don't know it is other sister until one of them utters a phrase that the sister likes to say and then they realize they are speaking to another on the phone.

The GEICO ad with something about words can hurt you, which then shows a western scene where a cowboy rides off into the distance only to hit his head on The End title.

The other one in this series of ads is something about the Great Wall of China wasn't that great and it shows a group of conquerors looking at the wall of China which is only knee high. After a second or two they just wide steps to cross the small wall.

Saw an Audi commercial inspired by the movie The Birds but using a swarm of drones instead of birds as the things going after the people.

Thumbs up Re: National TV Ads You Like - Chapter 2

Recently I saw a GEICO commercial where a family was preparing to eat dinner and then they were 'frozen' in time. They were acting. The large family dog got up on the table and devoured all the food from everyone's plates, while the family remained unmoving.

I had it on my Facebook page for awhile; just deleted it yesterday, otherwise I'd share.
