    Awesome Ads

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

    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.

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

    And on a lighter note, the best ad ever, "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owGykVbfgUE
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    Normally I skip the commercials, but this one touched my heart: - Christmas Surprise

    John Lewis in the UK always have lovely Christmas adverts. My favourite is this one from last year about a brave snowman's journey!

    I usually hate cell phone commercials, but I love this one with James Earl Jones.

    This one's been around a while. Not even sure they're still running it, but it's one of my favorites. Jake from State Farm.

    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.

    This commercial only aired twice, but it got to me both times.

    Loved the India one. This one introduced me to some beautiful music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34oJmFVAVFY Like the commercial as well.

    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.
