Commercial Success

I am not a fan of commercials. I am more a fan of the fast forward button. But, I watch quite a few shows. Just last night, my remote & I fought between 'Cupcake Wars' & 'What Not to Wear'. And, now that 'Amazing Race' & 'Survivor' are done, I will have to find some new, if not temporary, distractions.

Some commercials leave me in utter shock; others make me wonder what the Hades the 'Mad Men' were thinking. As my mother-in-law puts it, "I don't get it. What are they even selling?" And on many counts, I agree. However, sometimes, there are the ones that catch my fancy. And here are my 4 faves of the year.

This kid is just too cute!!

Giggling woodchucks! Love it!

Um yeah, I'm pretty sure I know this kid. The mom is priceless.

And, drum roll, please...
This one makes me smile & move every time & is my pick of the litter. I dig it!!

So, now, what are some of your favorites? 

Happy Writing,



  1. Those are great! Sometimes I do wonder what they're trying to sell. I love the piggy crying wee wee wee all the way home! Oh, and the one with the old army guy as the therapist in mamby pamby land.

  2. Thanks Julie,
    I totally forgot about R. Lee Earl. I love when he calls his patients a 'jack wagon'. Too funny & a great turn of phrase.

  3. My favorite is the Ikea commercial about the lamp and how it has feelings!

  4. Very funny Clarissa. I will have to check that out!!
