Time Warner Cable commercial — “Back and Forth”

| October 25, 2015

It is interesting how certain commercials are bring smiles to our faces … but we always seem to stumble on a commercial that sticks in our heads. This one from Time Warner Cable has Brenda and me doing  back and forth “yes, welcome” to each other … just as one from Geico did in 2012. It’s […]

Vistaprint has one of the better television commercials

| February 17, 2015

Vistaprint produced a great television commercial that is currently running on a couple national cable channels. Perhaps I like it because it is “printing” or “entrepreneur” related, but the passing down of a small business does tug at my heart strings.

Start thinking about those expensive Superbowl commercials

| January 30, 2012

For those of you who remember, or just enjoyed (my old  link), the classic Matthew Broderick movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, prepare yourself for a new Superbowl 46 ad by Honda.

Twister Movie Commercial: DirecTV again

| May 20, 2006

I don’t own a DirecTV system, nor am I a shareholder … but I do appreciate their new advertising campaign. I posted a comment about a DirecTV commericial (Ferris Bueller) a couple of days ago, but just spotted another pretty funny one tonight while watching a news program. Maybe its not quite as good as […]

Citroen dancing Transformer commercial

| May 4, 2006

This post is for Jason who commented that he enjoyed the Vee-Dub television ads that were posted in February (or was it the VW TDI ad?). If you like them you might like this one; besides being a creative ad, the 2006 Citroen C4 was voted 2006 World Car Design of the Year, at the […]
