    I know there is a "hate" thread..

    Anyway - really dug the Google Chrome ad featuring people wanting to learn and do new things (it features Baumgartner's jump from space and NASA engineers cheering landing on Mars and ends with a kid saying "thumbs up everybody)."

    Agreed. Every time I see it I think "Why am I sitting here on this couch? I should DO something!"

    And then I keep sitting on the couch, but still...

    The Volkswagen ad of the dad coaching his kid how to throw, and then they show the dad and it's obvious he never threw a ball before age 35, had us all laughing last night. Maybe because we were all youth coaches and have dealt with dads like that.

    I don't even know what company it's for -- maybe an Internet company? -- but the one where the guy sits at the table full of kids and talks to them. His deep "I'm important" voice and their zany answers is very funny stuff.

    Love the Blake Griffin commercials for Kia.

    I've seen it a million times while watching the NFL playoffs, but I still like the NFL.com Fantasy commercial showing all the fans fretting over their bad fantasy teams (plus the clever made-up team names).

    And, although it's gotten a lot of hate on the other thread, I actually like the T-Mobile commercials ("... one, two Kalamazoo..."). Of course, it helps they feature a good-looking babe in tight leather. I also give extra points to the latest helicopter ad because the soundtrack to it is "You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire," my favorite Queens of the Stone Age tune.

    Aaron Rodgers in the classroom. Great timing and funny all the way.

    And the NFL "Superstition" ad with Stevie Wonder's song. Good idea.

    A successful merging of a blood glucose meter with a jingle that sounds like an ad for Target's back to school sale.


    Many of these are annoying, but she's cute as button:


    This campaign was so ridiculous, it was also consistently fun:



    Enjoy these two. Perfect description of my visits to Wikipedia:

    That's not a job.


    I never get tired of those lines.

    I have a friend who played DI lax and cannot throw a ball. That video was tagged on Facebook the minute after I saw it.

    Dick's killed it with this one during the holidays.

    Crap, how could I forget this one?!


    Kid actor does a really great job conveying without facial expression. And the dad would so be me.
