With all the doom and gloom and politics making the scene these days, I thought that it might be nice to have a light-hearted humorous thread on (what slse?) funny advertising videos. Hope this helps to add some semblence of balance to our 24/7 non-stop news of gloom and doom that contributes to our stressed-out lives.

The only rule is that you can only post one link per post. Come back in and post some additional posts if you like, but please, just one link per post.

I'll start it off with the following:

For a video that had me spewing Pepsi out of my nose onto the keyboard, here is the Matthew Johnson "Nationwide Insurance" commercial:

The ending? I never saw it coming. (no pun intended.)


P.S. It was this ad that introduced me to Matthew Johnson and, with that wierd sense of humor, got me to immediately buy his "The Secret Art of Monkey Business" magic DVD.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.

It'll be difficult to understand the humor since I can't (or at least shouldn't) run the original clip, but there used to be a commercial for cigarettes (Lark brand) that had people in a flatbed truck driving past people on the street while they held up a sign that read "Show us your Lark" (Of course everyone had a pack of lark.) All of this to "The William Tell Overture"

Hold that in your mind while you watch this.
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"
