I actually like commercials.....well only the good ones. There have been some classics over the years, so share some of the ones you liked.

I think the new AXE commercial is a classic. And can anyone name that music...I love it.

Neat commercial - very stylish.

The theme reminds me of the old 'Hai Karate' men's cologne TV ads from the 70's. The man would spray some on, and women would suddenly be physically attracted to him, and he would have to use karate moves to fend them off.

One of these ads can be seen at the above google video link ... just do a search for 'Hai Karate tv ad'

Country Club Malt Liquor had this series of adds where some regular guy would be enjoying his beer in harms way, ignoring all that was around him, like in the ring at a bullfight.

Also, the famous spokesperson adds...Eddy from Zacheryall, Mr Blackwell for Carpeteria, Pat Boone for Hoffy (served at Pink's) and of course anything with Cal Worthington and his dog Spot.

I do like the Geico commercials... Geico Caveman
============================================
OMAHA, Neb. -- ABC has inked a deal that may look a lot like 30-minute weekly ads for an insurance company, ShowBuzz.com reported on Monday.

The cavemen featured in Berkshire Hathaway-owned GEICO car insurance commercials have a cult following. Comedian John Lehr told Newsweek magazine that he has been mobbed by paparazzi that want their own photos taken with him in caveman costume. He plays one of his cavemen in the wildly popular ads.

ShowBuzz.com reported that the creators of "Third Rock From the Sun" have signed a two-year deal with ABC to create a sitcom based on the cavemen. Bill Martin and Mike Schiff reportedly signed a seven-figure pact, which has an option for a third year. They also will develop new projects for ABC TV Studio.

Much like in the ads, the three cavemen will navigate regular modern life from their homes in Atlanta, ShowBuzz reported.

The popularity of the cavemen has been good for GEICO. Newsweek reported that since 1998, sales have jumped to $11 billion from $2.8 billion. The insurer's own site offers caveman merchandise for sale.

Can the cavemen make it as TV stars? The site also allows fans to read the cavemen's blog and tour their apartment on CavemansCrib.com.
