    The Jake from State Farm thread got me thinking...which commercials are your favorite? Most are annoying, but sometimes one comes along that is catchy, funny, or just plain interesting.

    Past or present...whaddyagot?

    I just saw this one the other day...I laughed out loud because if my dad were alive it would totally be him. :lol:

    I completely tune out commercials most of the time.

    However, I laugh out loud whenever the Geico commercial comes on that has they guy riding off on his horse and finds out that words DO hurt.

    I usually mute the commercials too! That Hallmark one I actually saw on Hulu, where it's harder to ignore them!

    I don't have cable so the only commercials I have seen for the past 5 years have been on HULU. They tend to repeat a few over and over. I like the Geico commercials with the piggy. He's just so cute.

    I saw one this morning I've never yet seen, but I love it: The 4 Elvises & State Farm Insurance commercial.

    OK, I will chime in and admit that I love the commercial where the free range chickens just keep sending pictures home. Hubby doesn't get it at all because he is clueless about what a free range chicken is! I also liked the one where the family gives the Pillsbury Dough Boy a pair of jeans. I fast forward through most, but sometimes if I am watching something live, one will register as funny or terrible.

    I love the Dirty Dancing fail commercial. Search it on YouTube if you haven't seen it.

    I like the one when the girl calls Enterprise to come pick her up for a car rental, and then she pretends to her family that he is her date. So cute.

    And for all of the dog lovers - how about the one where the owner asks over and over if the dog is hungry, as the dog is bouncing up and down. confirming that he is hungry? Dinner is everything he hoped it would be, and his parting shot is that couldn't we just all assume that he would be hungry without all of the questions the next day? Cute.

    I'm not sure why, but I like the Sprint 'stupid rich' one at the auction. The girl and her mom. It cracks me up. (The other stupid rich one- with the planes and stuff is not funny.)

    I love that one, too! It took me a few times before I realized that the words on the screen knocked him off his horse and that the words literally hurt!

    I also love the Snickers commercial from the Super Bowl where Marcia from the Brady Bunch needs a Snickers, and Jan rants, Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! One from my generation!

    I've seen that commercial millions of times (okay, I exaggerate) and never noticed that. I always wondered what the point was.

    So, I just watched it again. NOW, it's funny! Thanks!

    The Dora the Explorer at the South Pole is also a funny Geico commercial.
