    an ad that makes me laugh every time

    I guess this is in honor of Halloween, but thank goodness for YouTube, where I hope I can continue to watch it even after Halloween ends. It's the Geico "happier than a witch in a broom factory" ad. For some reason this makes me giggle whenever I see it. It's such a little gem, with not a moment that's excessive.

    Dad likes the Snickers "Horseless Headman" commercial...

    Me? I'm loving the new VISA football fan commercial that features my Niners!

    I've always liked the "Mikey" Life Cereal commercials, the Aflac ones, and the Staples one in which the dad is singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" while shopping for school supplies. His kids look so forlorn, and he's really in their faces ("They're going back ...").

    I love the witch in the broom factory !

    I also like the VW commercial that just features people laughing - beginning with babies and working up to some guy who's even older than me !..the line is something about ,It's the journey ,not just the destination..but the giggles are so infectious , it always perks me up.

    ETA: Found it "It's not the miles, it's how you live them "

    My favourite GEICO commercial is this one:

    Both because I've struggled my weight and eating habits and because I remember very clearly the "cool" girls acting like that in high school.

    I loved the Discover Card commercials they did that featured USA Prime Credit (fake company) and their "customer service" office... the main character was "Peggy"... I still quote a lot of his commercials.

    "Thank you for calling USA Prime Credit. My name Peggy."

    That is a wonderful one because it gets the popular girls down perfectly: traveling in a herd, looking down on everyone else. I can still tell you the names of the flock of them from my sleepaway camp. They should live and be well--maybe they've all become Peace Corps workers by now, but they were manicured and supercilious examples of the breed at that point.

    Oo and the etrade baby! Especially the one where he's in time out because "apparently riding the dog like a small horse is FROWNED UPON IN THIS ESABLISHMENT!!!!" Cracks me up!

    Agreed. Really good character building in such a tiny space.

    Oh, I also love the HP printer ad with the baby barreling down the road in his/her walker, and also that hypnotically beautiful Winter Olympics ad with the snowboarder drifting through outer space. Let me hunt a moment:

    The baby--look at all the details, with the long shots and the smoke trail and so on.
