Whatever happened to the really creative commercials? Commercials should be entertaining at least and not written for a 3rd grade audience. Not that a commercial will cause me to buy something or not, but they should be clever to get peoples attention.

My favorite one of all time was the Nissan Birds.

Commercials have gone to crap, I only like a few like the 5 gum commercial, or those ATT Wireless ones where everything is said opposite.

One of my favorite commercials is the Honda Rube Goldberg commercial. It's all real (no computer graphics) and they shot until they could get it all right in one take. Here's a link

I like commercials with creepy dolls and gnomes in them and then I tell my sister to watch them cause they freak her out. There was this cd/dvd store in dallas that had commercials with a gnome that suddenly appears like in your bedroom and says free dvd in a creepy voice. Oh and the ones with a ventriloquist dummy in an 18 wheeler that screams gave me lots of material to creep her out.

For the start of the College Football Season, Dr. Pepper has one of a defensive player scoring his first TD and his TD dance. I thought it was pretty funny.

And now there is the insurance ad where the guys on their way to the game take a short cut and damage their car. Only to have an SUV from the other team take the same shortcut and have it come down on top of their car.

I have to admit some of my favorites are the Geico Cavemen ads. The first 3 were truly classic.
