    Thumbs up Spin off: TV Commercials that you LOVE

    I don't have any that I hate because I usually don't pay attention after the first milisecond if the ad looks dumb or boring.

    But there are a few that grab and keep my attention. Recently, it has been that Geico ad with the antelopes that have night vision goggles. I could watch it over and over again! "We totally see you, Carl."

    Anyone else have commercials that they love?

    I love the Progressive commercial with the castle built out of insurance policies. Cracks me up every time.

    I love Mayhem. If I didn't fear it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy, I would name a foal that.

    I hadn't seen the Weetabix or the Ragu commercials. Both good!

    charysmaryllis-- I know the one you mean. But I don't get it! Not a very good ad if neither of us can remember what it is for!

    My current fav is the subaru one where the little girl is getting on the school bus the first day of school. She is adorable!
