You know, you'd think that commercial would incite fear ... for the child's safety ... instead of ticklish delight. I keep wishing it were me in that baby walker speeding along happily in ignorant bliss.
I _know_ the baby isn't really in traffic, but it looks so real ... and yet it doesn't even raise one iota of fear in me. It just looks like loads of fun. Maybe it's the song?
The pig commercial is funny the first time, but it sort of loses its funny side when the stations have it on over and over. I ended up having to mute it the forth time it was on in the same hour. I don't have a favorite at the moment, but the coffee commercial where the little sister meets her brother at the door and says "You're my present." is cute.
It looked like a remake to me too, but how many feel gool coffee commercial ideas involving Christmas are there? I remember two others where making coffee in the morning wakes up the family - but it doesn't seem to matter - and I still liked this one.
how many feel gool coffee commercial ideas involving Christmas are there?
I wonder why all the feel gool (or good) coffee holiday commercials involve Christmas?
What about Valentine's Day, for example. Roses? Chocolate? Is that something in the black velvet box a diamond necklace? No, no, no - it's coffee!!! Oh, I can feel the love just imagining it!
A Mother's Day coffee commercial would be touching. Mom and I always talked that it would be so nice to live close enough where we could just pop in each other's house for a cup of coffee (Mom drank tea).
Halloween too, is a natural for a coffee commerical. Picture it: Wife wakes up and does NOT smell the heavenly aroma of coffee brewing. Now that's scary! Wife, of course, rolls over to face husband next to her in bed; husband opens his eyes to find he's face-to-face with Monster Wife, and quickly jumps out of bed to start the coffee pot.
Then, of course, there's Black Friday. The Target Two-Day Sale Crazed Shopper Lady seems to be on a perpetual caffiene high. Some of these commericals crack me up; here's the latest I've seen called "Chorus":

There's a radio commercial I hear on my way to work everyday......it's a milk commercial where the husband is putting away groceries and sort of "white guy" rap rhyming about the milk productrs in the bag......totally hilarious.
My favorite radio commercial was an old K-Mart Picture Perfect Guarantee that featured a little boy and girl. The boy said something about taking pictures of friends, relatives, and then mentions "pictures of the opposite sex" at which the girl gasps and asks if he can say that. At the end of the commercial, the little girl asks the important question: "Are YOU the opposite sex, or am I?". Not particularly funny in print, but if you heard it you'd undersand the humor.
Oh, I remember when you first posted that video. Rewatching it, I've decided I want to be a Pipette...just so I can say I'm a Pipette. I might name my next cat Pipette too, so I can say it more often. Dang, it's a fun word to say.
Not funny or fun in the least, but IMHO this should be required viewing for teenagers about to get a license. It's a bit on the graphic side so be warned you don't want your younger children watching this.
There are a lot of commercials out there for some pretty useless products, most of them shown on late-night cable, and if you call now, Now, NOW!!! you can get not one useless product, but two or more for the price of one (plus shipping and handling).
In the last week or so, it seems during every commercial break, I've seen the same two commercials for the same two useless products (too much late-night TV, perhaps?)
One is for a two dollar bill..."the most rare of all U.S. currency". On this even rarer than rare bill, the giant head of Thomas Jefferson seems to be floating in a water-colored Grand Canyon, or if I call now, NOW, NOW!!! he also floats over Yellowstone National Park for the same low, LOW, LOW!!! price of $10 (plus shipping and handling).
I'm perplexed - I just don't get it. Isn't it illegal to deface or alter U.S. currency.....although the fine print on the bottom of the screen says it's not issued by U.S. Mint, and if it's not made by the U.S. Mint, why would I pay $10 for a worthless piece of currency (although even the currency made by the U.S. mint is pretty worthless these days). If it's not a 'real' two-dollar bill, it'd be counterfeit, yes?
The other commercial says I can get a $50 gold buffalo head coin for the low, LOW, LOW!!! price of only $10....although I can't remember if I have to call now, NOW, NOW! to get more than one for the same price. Again, it's not made by the U.S. mint, is not legal tender, and is not actually gold, although it is quite shiny.
Why, WHY, WHY???!!! would I want these things. And why am I even pondering why anyone else would want them either?
Obviously I've been watching too much late-night television.
I've seen the $2 bill ads too Phalon, and you are correct that what they are doing is illegal. The Secret Service ignores these for a few reasons. The Fed is obligated to account for all legally minted money - coin or printed - but understands that some is, if notthing else, just plain lost. The intent of the law is to protect substantial amounts of money from modification - and to keep smaller amounts from fraudulent changes such as bleaching so you have real paper and then printing a $20 over what was a $1. However, because some $$ is lost every year, the question becomes one of - is it worth the effort? From what I can find, so long as the overall value is inconsequential compared to the total in circulation, then the Secret Service will intentionally ignore the minor violators.
The Santa dollars being sold nearly every year ARE legal - they don't deface the dollar. The "Santa" is actually an appliqué that can be peeled off leaving the original bill in its original condition. Since it isn't marred or defaced and the use isn't fradulent - it's legal. Perhaps the $2 is being used the same way - the underlying bill receives a colorful overlay and that leaves what they are doing as legal.
But addressing your point - aren't you glad those stupid ads are not on during prime time? And why anyone would want a coin "clad in .999% pure gold" is beyond me. The plating is so thin I'm surprised the packaging doesn't rub it off!
Sometimes I crack myself (and only myself) up. Something came to me in the shower yesterday morning, that made me laugh out loud (I get the best inspiration while in the shower; must be the hot water loosens my brain muscles).
You all have seen the "smoky eye" Gogurt commercial, yes? The look on the kids' faces is priceless - and I have seen the same look many, many times on the faces of my own kids.
I rarely wear make-up (with the sun-screen/dirt combo at work, make-up just feels icky), and when I do wear it, it's not much. Both girls wear it; BP's is light and natural looking, and LX makes a bold statement with hers. Both of them are also into fashion trends, and are always urging me to get more "trendy".
So. I will become more trendy.
LX is home for Thanksgiving next weekend. Wednesday night, we are all going to see the new Hunger Games movie. "I'm ready to go", I'll announce, standing at the door as they stare at me with their mouths hanging open.
