Since I am one those people that have unfortunately spent a great deal of her life in front of a tv…commercials have become something that I have come to enjoy and hate at the same time. There are certain commercials that stay in my mind and that is usually because they are funny and there are those that are just annoying and are played way too much (those are usually the companies that have a great deal of money that they can throw on advertising time).
Commercials have become so integrated into tv (and now movie – which I was surprised when commercials started playing there) that we have companies willing to spend millions on only 30 seconds of air time during the Super Bowl. Yes, I understand they can reach more people but even after I see the ad, it doesn’t make me want to go out and buy a car…so I don’t understand their methodology but hey I am not the one being paid the ‘big bucks’ to create and focus group these ads to everyday, average folks.
Getting ready to write this post, I thought back through the years on all the commercials that I have seen and liked and wanted to share them with all of you. I hope you enjoy.
So, here are the Best 3 Commercials of All Time:
1. The Force – Volkswagen Commercial (this one is so funny)
I have to say The Force – Volkswagen commercial is one of those commercials that just makes me laugh everytime I see it. It is so cute and so funny.
As for the other picks, the Terry Tate one is great. I would love to have him visit my office. He is hilarious and I know there are a few people you would like to see this happen too in your own offices…
The Old Spice ad was just clever and I did appreciate that (finally) a good looking man with hardly any clothing on was featured in an ad (all those beer commercials are just annoying).
