    The "Don't Be a Tosser" ads. Don't know if this is a provincial government thing or not. It is extra funny when one knows what a "tosser" is in Britain.

    The chocolate guy in the Axe ad is hilarious, especially the bit where the girl bites his arse on the bus!

    I love the chubby kid that says to the banker
    "It's a a piece of junk! I want the red truck!"
    in response to swapping a cardboard cut out in replacement for the red truck he was playing with, as a parallel to "It's a limited time offer" scenarios

    Anyone see that commercial where you see all these people crying and screaming, throwing their tv's out the window and jumping up and down in a rage?

    It's a commercial for a video game rental company. People were paying $50 for a video to discover it sucked and they're mad about it. I like the actors who use these emotions. Pretty funny.

    Boston Pizza finally made a funny TV ad. Specifically, the parents doing the police interrogation room scene with their kid not eating his veggies.

    Question how many parents do you know rewarding their kids for not eating their dinner by taking them out to eat?

    When I was a kid the plate was left on the table until I was hungry enough to eat it or I went to bed hungry.

    I thought it was OK the first time the 332 times since not so funny!

    I like the 'chemistry' of the manager and the employee in the A&W ads. Those actors seem to have difficulty keeping a straight face. I know I can't.

    Agreed. Particularly the ad where he takes the balloon and lets it go and deflate, and it sort of flops on his shoulder as he stares at it. Obviously they couldn't predict where the baloon would go and they just went with it. Well done.

    I like those Goodwrench ads.
    Customer: "Can I speak to your manager?"
    Manager: "What up, c-customer man?"

    Reminds me of when I'd take my old wheels to Mr. Lube or Lube City.

    That creepy Huggies ad with the kid strutting around in his "Denim" diapers is soooooo wrong, with all those people leeriing at him. Just wait until he is 18 and his parents show him that from his past.... ick.

    The only thing funny is the tag line "You never looked so cool pooping your pants"

    I like the beer commercial where the guy throws the beer to the 85 year old man with the walker ("c'mon nancy, throw it right down the alley"), hitting him in the head.

    The looks on the faces of the guy who threw it and his friends gets me every time.

    The big dumb looking guy with the cheesy 70's porn star moustache is especially lame, As for the mouthy grampa the can should have hit in the nuts....... Really give him something to scream about. clutching at his walker and himself.......

    Almost the same idea as that Workopolis ad with the guy behind the job listing talking to the dog about çome here, sit, give me a big wet kiss and the job applicant saying "I'm not really much of a kisser" Funny how that ad plays on Canadian TV and Not the US stations,

    I really HATE the current Miller lite beer ads that make fun of the guy with the carry all. FIrst, who the hell carries a big white bag????

    Second, I am proud to say I have a collection of purses, NOT man bags but purses. I dont give a %$#@! who likes or does not like it. It saves me the hassle of looking for my receipts, cleaning cloth for my glasses, cleaning solution, contacts, comb, inhaler, reading glasses, bills, all stupid "club" cards that give you perks and discounts, paper money, coins, etc...

    VIVA LA PURSE!

    Any ad that invloves some sort of personal hygiene item, whereas one person complains about a "affliction" and the other person (usually female) whips out a giant box of Tampons, Creams, Laxatives, or what have you out of her purse.

    Like people in real life carry a box of 100 tampons with them 24/7 or start recommending something that they find fast and effective, If anybody I knew started like that I would run away soooooo fast.

    Jason Alexander's Jenny Craig ads have been great, he and Valerie have good comedic chemistry. The ongoing gag with the man-bikini and his strip act - priceless!

    I remember thinking that Ryan made the right decision when he announced that he had quit! But old pops, the manager, just gave him a lunch break instead. I think Ryan should expand his horizons.

    I kinda dig that ATA ad with the teacher in a classroom full of "adults." Although in typical union thinking, the suits are the class troublemakers. Oh, and I wish my teachers were as smokin'-hawt!

    I kinda dig the Western Direct Insurance ads with the guy's deadpan delivery while drinking a money milkshake. But I wish they'd bring back the one where he says, "After all, who doesn't like money? I know I do" followed by a cheesy grin.

    I like the Canadian Tire commercial of the guy getting hyped up to go outside and exercise. When he opens the front door there is a wall of snow so he has to use a hockey stick to chip it away.

    The ad is for indoor exersise equipment.

    The M&M spot - something about brown skin and than the little guy starts boogieing.

    That entire ad is funny, the Chocalate coated "lady" M&M talking to the two women while wearing glasses and high heels and shooting down the two guys who thinks she is naked, But the best part is everyone looking shocked at watching the "guy" strip off and start dancing to that popular "I'm sexy and I know it: makes a me laugh out loud. Because we have all seen some ***** at a party sometime in our lives...

    Yeah, that's the one darrellinyer! I have to admit watching that 'Vince' fellow in the 'Schticky' commercials gives me a chuckle too, "...Vince - Oh, your playing with your Schticky...". At least he didn't shy away from that arrest he had in Florida for battery against a prostitute by incorporating the reference in the commercial. People make mistakes and I believe he realized the error of his path.

    I like the Auto Trader ads. My favorite is the gangstas in the Mitsubishi seeing the family of 4 in the exact same car, and their ad arousing the interest of the wannabe gangstas (can I say "w" word here?)

    I love the new commercial for Weetabix. I can always count on the British to create great TV ads.

    Beyond the smartphone autocorrect joke, it's a beautiful use of psychology; depending on your own imagination, the resulting mental picture is as nasty as you imagine it to be.

    I like the window commercial where the people are acting as if they were in an art gallery. BTW, the music in that one is "Toselli Serenade".

    I love the egg ad with the couple daydreaming about activities with their sleeping pug, while the pug dreams about being left alone to sleep!

    Doesn't make me giggle, but is a feel good commercial.

    I remember seeing this commercial some 15 - 20 yrs ago about an old lady living alone and every day she checks her mail box for letters from her family only to be saddened that nobody writes her.

    A neighbor across the street notices this and decides to send her daughter over to the lady along with a greeting card in the hopes in makes her feel better. (goodness, I'm tearing up already).

    The daughter comes back to tell her mother that the little old lady is crying after she gave her the card, and the mother runs over to the lady to give her a hug.

    This has got to be the most touching commercial I had ever seen. Only saw it once, but left such a feeling that you never forget.

    I wish I can remember if it was hallmark, but can't seem to find this commercial anywhere.

    Has anyone every seen it?

    I don't know why, but those Blue Dragon ads - blonde girl is being praised by her Asian SO's family for her skills in cooking their cuisine - makes me laugh.

    that fibre one commercial where the parents forget the sons cereal is odd. do the parents think the kid is too dumb to realise that "numbre 1" would make no sense for an English cereal name?

    Too bad the add is overplayed then you see the next add with the same actor laughing at everything, gum on a handrail, spilling coffee on this office computer, getting a ticket etc etc....annoying.....

    The 2 older Cialis commercials that they recently started playing again. The best is when the dad turns up the stereo and the other commercial where mom gives the son a pair of big headphones. Makes me laugh every time

    I like that Delicio Pizza ad with the uptight 50s dad daydreaming about being a more modern family. "I forbid this wheel of temptation!"

    I've said it before, giving Cialis to old guys is like putting a new flag pole on a condemned building. That's why that add makes me smile.

    Not quite making me giggle....maybe giddy?....but I hope they keep playing that Mayfield Toyota ad with that smokin'-hawt blonde! I don't know if she's really a sales person there, or if she's just the manager's squeeze or a hired model.

    Catchy folksy tune on the Prius commercials. I read a story about advertisers sometimes using tunes from songs that got little, if any, air play. And some of those artists then producing music just for commercials.
