Has anyone seen the new Nike commercial with the world-class athletes performing in different sports?
They've got Lance Armstrong boxing, Marion Jones vaulting (gymnastics, not pole variety), Andre Agassi playing for the Red Sox, Mike Vick and Urlacher playing hockey, and Randy Johnson (Diamondbacks pitcher) bowling.
One of the greatest ads ever, in my opinion. I'm just wondering why it didn't make it in time for the Super Bowl...

BEST PAST: Wendy's (Hamburger chain) Theme: We always need a change...
Setting: A model's runway at a fashion show...Russian style!!!
Announcer: Day Vear (wear)!!
A overweight Babushka (woman) saunters out wearing a dank grey headscarf and matching colored burlap sack of a dress...she stops to the front and back behind the curtain!
Announcer: Svim Vear (swim wear)!!!
She emerges again exactly the same...except she has a beach ball under her oversized arm.
Wendy's plugs there pitch about a change in burger joints is aways good..blaj,blah,blah...change is good.
Announcer: Evening Vear!!!
The Babushka emerges again...same attire..but with flashlight..shing it in everyone's face!
(reminiscent of the old Soviet KGB 'flashlight and show me your pass type behavior)
BEST NEW: Southwest Airlines Theme: Want to get away?
The black girl using her dates bathroom looks sneakingly into his medicine closet...
Girl: (yells atop her lungs) I like what you have done with your place here!
She hears no reply...giving her the 'All Clear'...that no one is around.
She pokes around and pulls out a tube of some kind of ointment, snickers to herself and places it back...then
CRASH!!! The whole stack of glass shelves come crashing down on each other....the look on her face is priceless!!! She is so busted!
Wanna get away?

In the states (or at least here in Southern California), there's a commercial for a sandwich company, Quizno's, with small animated rats or something - I absolutely hate it!!! they make me want to eat a sandwich there less!!! Why did they use them in their commercials, why did they have to give me the sense they're cooking rats in their sandwiches!!!
I still eat there about once a week anyways. Good stuff (try the Santa Fe Trio if you haven't -- oh, soooooooo good)

I've always liked the Fiat Punto advert set to Human League's "Don't You Want Me Baby". I don't know what it is, there's just something about that Brummie saying "don't... don't you want me baby? Whoa, whoa whoa....."
Oh yeah, and I'm with Trekster on the Christmas Coke advert - classic.

The best ones are John Smiths with Peter Kay. Have you seen the new one with Engelbert Humperdinck singing 'Please Release Me' with a pause before he says go and Peter Kay butts in as he is sitting down with a tray of drinks, funny as fcuk! All the adverts are on the John smiths website if you want to see them.
The worst is about 10 years ago when just about every ad was for McD's. They had a promotion over the summer. I think it was big Macs for 99p. Everyone was so sick of them.

I like the new Nike commercials. Those are fascinating. I remember way back when.... Phillips Light Bulbs had some great commercials. One of them was a beautiful woman on an elevator and a man gets on reading the newspaper. He smiles at her. At the next floor, she gets off (he does not see) and a repairman gets on: large, hairy... you know the type. The lights burn out (presumably they were not Phillips) and the newspaper guys says something like "I want you to know I think you are beautiful." The repairman (in his gruff voice) says "Hey, thanks, buddy!"
I miss the Tasters Choice commercials. Did they ever get married? Jeremy told dad about 'him' but what did he think of his ex-wife dating again? Sadly, we will never know.....
Any fast food chain commercials need to be pulled off the air. I saw Taco Bell's last week: it sucks. To me, the word club should not be associated with deep fat fried bread covered in deep fat fried pig meat. McDs and Wendy's are on just too much. I'm hating it. 2.5 years and McDs free!!! What about Quiznos? They show rats? Why would that make me want to eat there? Are they in the store?

THe best commercial the Geico one where the squirell runs that car off the road, then the other comes up and gives him a high five. I don't know why but the first time I saw that I couldn't stop laughing.
