Commercials

2 Feb

I’m just loving a few of them right now (of the ones I get to watch when Andrew is not fast-forwarding them).

Here are some that make me laugh out loud (in no particular order):

– The Geico one where the caveman is being interviewed by the news anchor.  I like those caveman commercials overall but that one just cracks me up!

– The BK one where the people are dressed up like burgers and junior says “I wish I’d never been broiled.”  Or the one where junior says “you treat me like I’m on the kids’ menu!”

– Some cell phone one where the family is sitting at the dinner table and the dad keeps texting his family to pass him things – I just really like when the dad giggles like a little boy because he loves his toy so much.

– Andrew also got me liking those Peyton Manning ones where he’s encouraging random people.

You know what’s even more funny about these commercials is that they don’t make me want to buy their stuff- I just think they’re funny.  I mean, I can’t even remember what product those last two were selling.

There is one on now that many of you might not see because it’s for Publix Supermarkets but it made me cry the other day.  It was so freakin’ predictable and I told myself as I was watching it, you’re not going to cry – you know what’s going to happen.  That didn’t work though because there I was standing at my stove cooking, spoon in hand, balling into the spaghetti sauce.  It was about a little boy who wants to bake a heart-shaped cake for a girl and asks his mom for help – his mom is all protective like, “who’s this girl?” – well of course that girl turned out to be her.

Do I want to go shop at Publix now because of that commercial?  Well, it doesn’t matter because I shop there anyways!

The I think bothers me the most is one of those “oh I’m just driving along talking when BAM a car slams into me” ones.  I don’t mind them – I actually think they’re kind of funny in a sick way but there’s one with a mom and her baby in the backseat and it just makes me sick to my stomach.  I guess it’s what being a mom is all about – when it comes to your sweeties – nothing worries me more.  I guess that commercial did what it was supposed to do – except make me want to give them money.  (I actually don’t know which company that one was for either!)

Do you have any favorites/most hated?

    I love the Apple commercials. Sure the guy playing mac is stuck up, but the PC guy cracks me up. He's on the Daily Show often as well, very smart and funny guy.

    I think the *bam* ones are Volkswagon. I HATE those because I've been hit by people and it brings it all back! AHHH!
