    Just wondering what everyones favorite T.V. Commercial is Now? The one that tops the list for Me is a GE. one about Harnessing the wind to conserve Energy ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,It shows a little Boy Climbing to the top of a Mountian with an open jar in his hand capturing the wind inside the jar and putting the lid on and then it shows Him Making his way to his Grandfathers house by train,,,Cycle etc,,,

    when He arrives,,,,It's his Grand Fathers Birthday,,,,,,With a cake setting in front of Him with all the candles lit,,
    The boy gets there just in time to Help his grampa blow out the candles by opening the jar of wind and blowing out the candles and a whole lot of other things,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Like the curtins go flying as does the puff of smoke from the fire place and Everyones Hair etc,,,,,,,,,,,It's called Harnessing the wind and putting it to good use,,,,,Cute! Man am i windy today!,,,,,,,,,,lol,,,,,,S

    in its infancy. In those days they didn't spend a lot of money on commercials.

    The announcer held up a can of something and said, "Buy this".

    I just love those Geico commercials with the cavemen! I laugh out loud every time they show them!

    I especially love when the caveman is in therapy and his cell phone rings and he says, "It's my mother. I'll put it on speaker." Too funny!!

    Don't know if you would have got these ad's in the US but when I was a kid I used to love a potato advert with robots that fell about laughing at humans beecause we mashed our own tatties(that's potatoes to non-Scots folk,LOL).

    I did a check on You-tube & couldn't believe that it had two clips of ad's about "For Mash Get Smash".
    What I couldn't remember was that Cadbury's used to make them,I thought it was only chocolate they made.

    Thanks sisland,gave me a great laugh to see those ad's again.
    If anyone want's to see them check the links below for a LOL:

    are the ones for the cell phone company in which one person is talking to another and then the connection is dropped, leaving the speaker thinking the other person is not talking. Thus, the speaker is mortified with embarrasment and thinks they said something wrong.

    i.e. a man talking to his future father-in-law and calling him "Jimbo."
    --a recently promoted woman who gets a bit cocky in her humor
    --a young man calling a woman on the day right after a date.

    I think these ads are clever and amusing, but they must not be that effective, because I can't tell you the name of the cell phone company!

    Aye,have heard of Craig Ferguson,a Glasgow lad,who was known to be a wee bit wild in his younger days.His alternative comedian name in the 80's was Bing Hitler,probably to cause a little bit of a shock & to get attention.
    We don't really hear much about him these days but I did know he had his own US chatshow & he seems to have got his act together these days.
    So chuffed to see a Glesgae(that's my attempt at Glasgow slang,LOL) guy doing well in the States.

    They are so cute and the ads are clever. I always watch them and I have to admit, I am not q commercial watcher. I really can't tell about any of them unless it has a puppy and kitten in it.

    I also love "World's Funniest Animals". The "people" ones always seem to be staged.
