    I was tempted to start this after watching Google India's new ad… really awesome emotional ad. :wuzrobbed

    P.S. cc for subtitles.

    ^^ That was touching, Domshab. Now why are you watching Indian ads? :)

    This is my favourite ad. An overseas friend couldn't understand why Aussies love to make a mickey out of themselves. :D

    Here's one which may make you cry. Well, at least it made me cry. :(

    This Kmart commercial is stirring up a lot of controversy (even more than their "ship my pants" commercial.) I might be low class, but it had me laughing hysterically.

    The Google India commercial is beautiful!

    The Kmart spot is hysterical! I don't get all of the controversy.

    Another one with beautiful music, although not a commerical, it is a brilliant stop motion animation short. https://vimeo.com/32397612

    How can this thread possibly exist without the mention of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Volvo?!

    A commercial from a few years ago that I used to love was this one from Swiffer with the 'B Company' guys singing a 40s style jingle. It's been about 13 years since it aired, but I still get the song (I still know all the words) stuck in my head.

    Me personally, I'm not offended by it so much as I'm a bit grossed out -- when I was around ten, one of my male cousins (who was a toddler at the time) had taken his diaper off and was moving around in the same stance because he had a dingleberry stuck on his ass -- this commercial reminds me of that not-so-lovely image :scream:

    Put the shoe on the other foot, though...instead of guys jingling their junk, what would reactions have been if it had been a bunch of busty women jingling their jugs?

    So basically ever Go Daddy and Hardy's commercial ever? Except in those they are generally extremely exposed. To be analogous the women would need to be wearing full coverage t-shirts, and they never are.

    It definitely was not for the US -- it was for the market in Europe

    Here's a :sekret: about the commercial: One of my close relatives is an Exec. in Advertising - he and his team are the brains behind that ad as Durex is his account. The crazy thing is that it won some Advertising Industry award the year it came out. Our entire family shit eggrolls when he showed it to us for the first time, and his parents were a bit :eek: :confused: :shuffle: at first because as much as they want to share their son's accomplishments with their friends, telling them he won an Industry award for a condom commercial can be, shall we say, a bit awkward :rofl: ).

    Bonus: For shits and giggles, they created "outtakes" (they same way Pixar occasionally does outtakes that roll during the movie credits):

    Take 1, Take 2, and Take 3

    :rofl:
