This one is a hoot, and certainly an attention getter. These guys are a riot. (Not surprisingly, it’s for a British company — I think a good sense of humor is a prerequisite for living there!) Commercial from Sell! Sell! on Vimeo.

Centraal Beheer: Acupuncture Guy

I’m not really sure what the hell is going on, but it’s still hella funny.

Chase – “Flying on Christmas”

I love this one, but… hey, I’m a sucker for Chevy Chase…

Newsday: “IPad App”

(Update: This seems to have been taken down on YouTube, and I can’t find another version. If someone else does, can you leave the URL in a comment? For the life of me, I’ll never understand why people take commercials off YouTube. It’s a COMMERCIAL. The point is for it to BE SEEN!)

A very clever one. (And a shout out to Newsday, my hometown paper growing up)

Minnesota State Lottery: “Recharged” and “Express”

Funny stuff, from the good folks at Olson. John Randle is a riot in this.

It’s a Very Big Ad!

God, I hope they sold a TON of beer from this one.

A very, very, VERY big ad, indeed…

FedEx: “Alien”

They’ve done a bunch of fairly clever ads, but this one is my favorite so far. It’s just got that right combo of weirdness and straight-on message.

“Messin’ with Sasquatch” – Jack Link’s Beef Jerky (Pickup Truck)

This whole series is absolutely incredible, but this one may be my favorite. The double taunt with the gentle “we’re sorry” cracks me up every time.

Best car ad ever? Toyota

Seriously brilliant. Love the fact that they didn’t wuss out and take off the edge. And some of this is pretty edgy indeed.

Jimmy Dean: "Full Moon"

(Promoted in honor of the man himself, the great Jimmy Dean)

This whole series has really grown on me. It’s goofy, but… consistenly and unabashedly so. And ya gotta respect that. Most importantly, the characters are engaging, and the product very, very memorable. Mmmm…. craving some sausages right now.
