    Flo, the Progressive girl. I adore her and her big teeth and red lipstick. I'm glad I'm a Progressive customer because I get Flo instead of that stupid gecko. The commercials are just so darn entertaining.

    Oh, and the iPhone video chat commercial with the girl who won't show her braces until her dad sings to her. It makes me giggle.

    Google usually has some nice ones but they don't get that much air time. The one where they tell the story of the guy moving to paris, meeting the girl, and eventually proposing to her is really cute. I like the one for Toy Story 3 also where the toy search things like how much they are going for on ebay and then at the end they type in take your toys to college with you.

    I do greatly enjoy the Real Men of Genius. They are the only commercials I will listen to.

    I don't know if this one is local or nationwide, but I think it is advertising a vacation- but is the one where the one guy is running around the office and pulling around a guy on a chair who is holding onto a waterski rope and they are running into the office furniture. Something I could totally see happening at FI's work.

    I love the Google one with the guy who visits Paris, falls in love, proposes, and ends with "assembling a baby crib" or something like that.  Too cute!

    I also love Super Bowl commercials - the Betty White one for Snickers was awesome!

    I like the phone one where it's at the inauguration and then rewinds through the kid's life and stops at the guy looking at the girl on the train and he changes his ticket real fast.  That one's so creative.

    Haha... this one would actually be my least favorite currently out!  I just feel like it says very little about the product.  Every time it's on, my boyfriend rolls his eyes and says sarcastically, "Subliminal marketing - if I buy your phone, will I really become President someday?"

    All of the Sienna commercials are pretty funny. I love the Sienna swagger wagon commercial:


    I also really liked the State Farm commercial were the guy straps a watermelon to his waist and keeps knocking things over.

    I've never seen Google commercials. Maybe I'm close enough to Google that they figure they don't need to advertise here.

    I like the Dos Equis "most interesting man" commercials, but only on the radio. I want to  leave what the guy looks like up to my imagination! I also like Flo from Progressive. She could make for a fun Halloween costume.

    I also like the Kia hamsters, even though I think the car is ugly.

    I love the old coffee commercials (Taster's Choice, I believe), that was an on-going love story between the neighbors.
     
    About 8-10 years ago there was some car commercial out - it was a carpool and they were all holding coffee cups and kept going over bumps and the only thing they all kept saying was "dude" over and over again - loved that cause my brother's dog was named dude and he would go crazy whenever that commercial came on.

    I also like the current one where the dad moves the little girl to the 1st row of seats where her brothers usually sit so they can have one-on-one time...too adorable.

    The Dos Equis commercials get me every freaking time:

    The Old Spice Guy ones are pretty hilarious too:

    This one is an old one, but it still makes me tear up every time I see it:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTxT7feUlPg

    The commercial for Captain Phil Harris' last episode of Deadliest Catch made me cry every freaking time it came on. That stupid song makes me cry now, because all I can hear when it comes on is Hillstrand going, "I was lucky enough to walk the earth with Phil Harris...that's a damned fact."

    ahh...i HATE the new kia commercial.  i actually kind of like the car, but that commercial alone inspired me to never ever purchase a kia product. LOL.

    I like the Dos Equis ones, but the radio ones are funnier than the TV ones. 

    I also like the new Allstate commercials.  Especially the teenage driver one:

    I hate ASPCA and Pedigree commercials. As soon as I hear Willie Nelson or Sarah McLaughlin I change the channel immediately or I'll start crying.

    They do.  I've seen it happen quite often in Savannah.  We have Hunter Army Airfield/Air Force Base here, so soldiers are deploying and returning all the time, and people will actually gather to applaud them, coming and going.

    My favorites are the Old Spice and Dos Equis, but we DVR most everything, so I don't watch many commercials.  Some friends of ours actually have a cardboard stand-up of the Dos Equis guy, and we pose with him at parties.

    That's awesome... glad to hear that.  I saw some soldiers in the airport a few years back and no one (including me obviously) was clapping for them.  After seeing this I thought we should have been and felt bad.
