What Are The Funniest Tv Commercials You Have Ever Seen?

136 posts in this topic

This commercial is so dumb it's mildly funny...Didn't they ever see Ralph in "A Christmas Story" set in 1950's?

Most people wouldn't allow the inside of their homes to get that cold though... :facepalm:

For some reason, these "stay thirsty my friends" commercials remind me of international playboy Hugh Hefner. Pompous, over the top, and self serving. The perfect tone for alcohol consumption I suppose.

This BMW Commercial struck me as hilarious...It's funny, truthful, and proves that shiny wheels always moves a guy up to the start of the line with the pretty girl.

Somehow, I don't think shampoo will make a guy cat nip to to the ladies. If it were only that easy and simple. haha So lame; it's funny IMO.

Yes, I live in WI, but I am not a GB Packers fan; I am an Indianapolis Colts fan. However, this Clay Matthews commercial got me thinking what fat head images would I surround myself with? Warren Moon, Jim Kelly, Deacon Jones, Walter Payton, Peyton Manning, Tedy Bruschi, Justin Tuck, Lawrence Taylor, etc. etc. The possibilities are endless...

Hey, do they make fat head images outside of the NFL realm like say musicians and other entertainers? Like favorite female drummers, favorite bands, or favorite club artists....A special redhead comes to mind. BrentMc11 knows exactly who I'm talking about but I digress... haha

This is actually a real TV commercial from the Duluth Trading Company. Really, I'm not kidding at all. I just saw it on cable TV last night. haha

I wonder what this clothing company would do with intimate women's apparel? :funny:lmao ;)

Now, this TV commercial is very patriotic, but listen to the slogan: "America's Navy: A Global Force For Good." What, as opposed to hired thugs and mercenaries for evil and nefarious purposes?

http://youtu.be/TmAeHsmf55U

I love our military and all 4 forces that serve our country with honor, dignity, valor, and bravery. But, why does U.S. military convey this image that only we are the only true country of patriotism, honor, and sacrifice? As if to suggest that other countries around the world aren't as equally proud of their nation, their government, or their citizens contributions as America is. The last time I checked, every country has a constitution, public leaders, and their own military to show national pride for too.

This American top dog supreme power fetish and symbolic motif really bothers me. Yes, just on manpower and technological advancements alone, the U.S. military industrial complex is vastly superior to most other nations I will admit, but this "top pitbull mentality" only works to a certain point IMHO. We are a global society now more than ever vs small individual states or single entities. We must have mutual respect and understanding for the value of independence and mutual sovereignty of nations besides our own.

Here's a Range Rover commercial that caters to an elegant & elite clientele. I always thought this company should tailor their ads to international royalty, foreign diplomats, & drug dealer king pins...

What's the point of this ad anyway? Leave the opera, drive cross country, show as many trees, shrubs, & lush green vegetation as you can; while you journey to a remote location to conduct an illegal & lucrative transaction?

This Galaxy S3 cell phone commercial cracks me up man! haha A woman can convey so much seduction and emotion with just her eyebrows rising...Green light, Red light, or is the light even on?... :sigh:

The expression "Release The Kraken!" has so many uses in today's society...Anger, disgust, humor...Behind closed doors dancing banana fun... :banana:

The defiant slogan even sounds like a relief pitcher in the World Series or a last resort secret SuperBowl weapon man...HaHaHa!

CBS TV host "Late Night with Craig Ferguson" makes fun of the slogan "Release The Kraken!" from the film "Clash Of The Titans." Very Funny! 1 bad word used here...Sorry...Still priceless though. :lol:

A real life Kraken/Octopus caught on camera up close & personal. Very Cool Indeed! :dancing:

Okay, this 2012 BMW TV commercial addresses the issue of New Year's Resolutions. It advocates for a person to "consume less" the following year.

Small problem though...How do you "consume less" by purchasing an expensive car exactly?

Thrift vs. reckless or gluttonous spending seems like polar opposites and a contradictory message to me. Hmmm...More ironic than humorous IMO...

Okay, this Pampers TV Commercial featuring the song "I Feel Pretty" struck me as an odd product & musical pairing...Unless you grow up to be a professional NASCAR driver & routinely wear a diaper for every major race that is...Danica Patrick perhaps...

Here is an explanation of what being "Scrooged" really means...A search engine marketing battle between Microsoft/Bing and Google and what reliable search results really do mean...

There is also an interesting debate about intellectual property, bandwidth speed, & a copyright infringement battle with google that provides free access to film clips, digital data, & in some cases, entire movies online in partnership with You Tube. Basically film studios want to stop or slow down buffering speeds over the internet & require consumers to purchase access to only their exclusive rights for a monthly fee like Napster for online music downloading etc. etc. Translation: No more free stuff online of high resolution quality if corporate Hollywood studios win in federal court.

What exactly does it mean when Progressive Insurance copies a line from director Quentin Tarantino's smash box office film hit "Pulp Fiction?" Specifically, "Everybody be cool" from the robbery scene between Pumpkin & Honey Bunny...That the Gekko is packin' some serious heat & artillery? Sign with this insurance company or you will literally be sorry?

http://youtu.be/5Rz6H4bZzhQ

Price check scanning guns are not the same as real firearms okay sure, but a mock dual or cowboy diplomacy standoff seems like an odd position for an insurance company to take with their audience even as a joke. Yes, imitation is the highest form of flattery that's true, but it does seem to be promoting a mixed message IMO. Generally, the inference of bloodshed is not a good marketing tool or strategy designed to lure in new customers while still retaining your regular policy holders at the same time.

I can't show the robbery scene because there is way too much profanity in it.

Okay, every single time I this this Jameson Irish Whiskey TV Commercial, I think #1: Cute redhead there & #2: Why in the world would a giant Hawk want whiskey filled barrel &  how did this man kill a huge hawk with his bare hands?

 

Talons can slice through human flesh pretty easily without too much difficulty..

http://youtu.be/sNoeOv4yXBA

 


How does this man John Jameson, the founder of Jameson whiskey, fight off a giant Octopus all by himself, the Kraken Black Spiced Rum company will sue Mr. Jameson over copyright infringement, & I thought the Irish drank Guinness dark ale by the pint not whiskey?

 

http://youtu.be/QfRmgkDkKRM

 

How come there is always a pretty woman to kiss too before going toe to toe with a gigantic creature of some kind too?

This Apple comedy skit  on "Conan" corners the market on the greediness of Apple & how they dupe their customers into buying the latest version of their product that really is not innovative, very expensive, & simply not worth the purchase price...It's only slightly different from last year's model & that includes iPhones too... :facepalm:  :sigh:

 

Are people really this foolish? Yes, sadly they are... :scratch:  :dunno:

This professional Bowling Commercial always makes me laugh.  haha Somehow, I just can't put lane mastery in the same category as 4th Qtr NFL Playoffs toughness though.  :lol:

 

http://youtu.be/6VeI-B_ILWw

 

The movie "Kingpin" makes a beautiful parody of this sport & a great comedy with Bill Murray in it to boot using ELO's "Showdown" as a nice musical backdrop IMO...Classic!  :thmup:

Finally found this Cadallac XTS TV commercial on You Tube. A vibrating chair warning system...Either that's sexual harassment or flatulence just became a safety feature in cars...  :lol: 

 

http://youtu.be/LLtgmfBl3o0

 

 

If I pulled a stunt like this in school, my parents would have told me too bad you should have told me sooner & planned ahead. Deadlines exist for a reason & I'm not saving your caboose on this assignment.

I think Oscar Mayer based this commercial on my father. He always gives you an unvarnished answer whether you want it or not.  haha

Let me get this straight, the side effects designed to cure insomnia include a fatal swelling of the tongue, sleep walking, amnesia, aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, suicide in depressed patients, addiction, headache, nausea, & fatigue. I will pass on Intermezzo. Thank you very much. How did this nightmare drug pass through the FDA anyway? Does any quality control or professional oversight exist anymore? 

 

 

Another pet peeve of mine...What in the world does Erin Andrews, an ESPN analyst know about digestive health or the body's immune system? Absolutely nothing. Celebrities selling cars is 1 thing. Vitamins is quite another. Did she go to medical school or pharmacy school? Hades no!  :facepalm:  Celebrities have no authority in this realm & it's an insult to real professionals in their authentic field of study to me.

This commercial actually was banned in 1970..Compared to today's standards, this would be considered mild...

It's ironic how a muscle car gives nerds an opportunity for relationships that they wouldn't otherwise have without such a fast & shiny toy isn't it? Sexual appeal isn't really used as a marketing tool anymore for cars, but fuel economy & price sure is CF4L.

For us old timers..the T-Y-D Bowl man!

" Harmless to skin, pets, & septic tanks." I took an editing class in college & 1 unit of study dealt with preventing litigation, lawsuits, tort reform, & large financial settlements crucial when technical manual writing must be simply stated & easy to follow by all consumers that purchase a product or liquid substance. Good stuff CF4L my friend!  :thmup:

This Pepsi Max commercial staring NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon in disguise with a Camaro actually made me feel sorry for the dealership test drive, sidekick guy. Was he wearing clean underwear afterward? I doubt it.

 

 

This Orbit gum commercial is bleeping hilarious! That gum really packs a wallet if you ask me.  :thmup:  :lol:

    • If you make indefensible comments and prove it by not defending it with anything resembling an argument, point or fact, then it discredits your original comment.  I am fine with accepting you're wrong with it.  Apparently so are you since all these supposed better options don't really exist.  If you can't suggest any names, you have no basis to complain that better guys were readily available to take the place of our staff.  The only thing you have left is a personal attack because you can't argue the issue that you raised in the first place.  And apparently you're not too asleep to read my posts and respond.  You know you aren't required to do so, so you must be interested so you lost that argumentative insult via your actions as well.  
    • Haeg went in the 5th 155th player picked. Our pick I liked least was Morrison in the 4th making him the 125th player taken. I saw him go undrafted in some mocks. NFL.com had him a 7th - proirity FA. I was surprised.   There were a lot of options on the board at 125 I do recall that. Judon was one of them Ravens took him 21 players later the 146th player picked.  I was hoping for D. Hall CB or Robinson CB LSU I liked Judon and RB Dixon there as well.  
    • That doesn't really conflict with what I saw.  I am not quite as optimistic overall because we really need to win early as our second half of the schedule is brutal so it's critical to be at least 6-2 the first half if we have sights on a great season, though reading this I just saw the Mewhort isn't gone for season? That's big big news and really changes a lot once he's back.  Of course it seems usually when the Colts say 2-4 weeks, it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, but let's hope for once their optimism is true.     I think Castonzo is a serious problem.  Not sure how you fix him as you'd think it is a mental problem rather than health because it has carried over across last season until now.  Philbin has his work cut out.  
    • We need to take a page out of the Patriots notebook.  Their line was very average last year, yet the offense put up great numbers.  If your offensive line has trouble pass blocking and can't run block, you need to turn the short passing game into your running game.  Short, quick drops and dump it off or throw darts on quick slants.  Patriots kill teams doing that.  We did beat the Broncos with less talent on offensive line last year so I'm still hopeful Chud will game plan better against good defensive teams like the Eagles during the regular season.
    • Still don't know how Walden is still on the team, not even a pay cut.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
