    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.
