What's your favorite?

Do you have a favorite commercial? At the moment, mine is the cell phone commercial, the one where the dad goes to his kids “each of the five of us can call five people for free, so it’s like 26 people”. And the kids roll their eyes and say “dad, five times five is twenty five, not twenty six.” And he says “No, you have to carry the nine. Five times five is twenty six.” And then the mom deadpans “kids, this is why you have to stay in school.” Gotta love this one.

Can't say I'm a fan of the Geico commercials with the cave men but I think a lot of people like them.

So fill me in. What's your favorite? Or non-favorite?

I think that commercial is hilarious about "26" people! That makes me giggle. Nolan and I were just laughing at a random commercial last night.

Nolan thinks it's SO funny because his friends used to play this trick on people...

since i got my dvr, i fast forward through commercials & that's my favorite. it means i waste less time watching tv. or i have more time to watch more shows, and not waste it on a commercial.

i mostly skip the commercials, so i'm not to up to date on this. i haven't seen the one you're talking about. there is one cell phone commercial i think is kind of funny where everything is the opposite of what it usually is in an argument with a father and son. like "I raised you to talk to me this way" and "this is so fair!" but said in the tones as if they were arguing. i'm not explaining it very well. but i think it's clever.

I have a couple.
Beer ones are usually really funny. There was a cell phone one awhile back where they changed plans and that meant mom could quit her 2nd job. She walked in in a Taco Costume and the dad was like "HOLA!" Something about it made me laugh so hard every time!

Also, the "GO MEAT!" commercials are pretty great.

I agree with you on the cave men commercials. Annoying. And they're making a sitcom out of it for the fall. Anyway, my fave is the cell phone commercial about the dropped calls when the guy calls his meat shipper to order 50 pounds of roast beef and the shipper says no can do. Well the guy says, "What did your wife eat it all?" Right now I am laughing as I type this. Gets me everytime. Anyway, the call gets dropped so he can't tell that the meat guy is laughing so then he starts to back pedal and digs an even deeper hole. Watch for this one. It's a good one.

I don't watch tv usually, the geico caveman commercials have always annoyed me. Shara has a DVR so we skip the commercials here too. :)

You guys have made my afternoon -- I'm watching these clips and just cracking up. I agree on skipping commercials in general but since we're still non-DVR/TIVO, it doesn't happen -- and these are FUNNY!

This one is from Australia, and its a beer commercial, but it is funny as heck. No wonder men love their sheds so much...

I love that one! I like the one where the guy is in a convenience store by the drinks and thinks this chick is picking up on him but she's really looking past him (at the drinks) and bops him in the head with the door as she opens it to get her beverage (it was beer or V8, can't remember). So funny. Ryan and I always laugh at stupid/funny commercials, but we too hate the cavemen ones. HATE them.

I really don't even watch commercials anymore, isn't that crazy. I know Scott does like the cavemen commercials.

i like that kelloggs commercial where like 3 guys are talking about things on the cereal box and one guys says he likes the word kellogg, because inside the word kellogg is "ello" like "ello gov'nor!" i love that one. there is also this fake pillsbury doughboy commercial(somebody added a little something extra) on stupidvideos.com. it is awful, but to me awfully funny:) warning: only for the completely immature audiences like myself. http://grouper.com/c/Funny/PooP/1547530#id=1547530&ml=fx%3D%26fpr%3D%26o%3D15

We don't have cable or Dish or anything which means our TV channels are very limited. I wish I could say that I knew of any recent commercials!

I like the 'ello govna commercial for raisin bran crunch as well, it's on my blog. my all time favorite! Another good one is the cell phone with your 5 picks. the daughter picks "sara beth.....etc. they're hot!" the son says, "i also piced sara, beth..." the daughter is all put out, and the dad says, " maybe you should have uglier friends."
