Default Commercials you actually like

Apparently the last post was more than 45 days ago. Klondike has introduced a new item that's a cross between their signature sandwich and a candy bar, though not a brand name bar. It shows a Klondike bar and a generic candy bar meeting up in the library. They start making out, and then they disappear below the screen. Cut to a kitchen where a woman says, "No." The man says, "That's how they're made." There's a brief description of the product, and the tag line is, "the best (something) ever conceived."

I saw this one a few times last year and thought it was cute, and again today, which reminded me that I had wanted to post it here.

There are several I liked.

One that stands out in my mind immediately, is one where there's a man who's interested in a car. He looks up and to his dismay, a salesman is walking towards the car with a key and another customer. This man panics for a moment then licks the lock. The customers and salesman get a very upset look and back off.

A store called "Tackle World".

www.youtube.com/watch?v=LorgVVU7bXE

Description: People doing everyday activities (working in an office, making tea, hanging up the washing) while dreaming about going fishing, all to the tune of a catchy jingle. I actually find myself singing along, and I don't even like fishing.

This is a video produced by/for Huggies about using a 3D printer to let a pregnant blind woman 'see' her unborn baby by modelling it from the ultrasound. I hope it was not just this one occasion, or even just actors.

Not only do I like the ad itself, I love that the thumbnail doesn't give away the joke!

Okay, the thumbnail that I just saw in TGG's post does kind of, but when I went to the website, it didn't.

What about "commercials about which you are ambivalent"?

I don't know if I like the commercial because it's adorable, or hate it because it's sappy.

Our household likes it due to the adorable "Your dad just kissed my mom." line.
