    I love the Sonic commercials with the couple sitting in their car, imbibing a variety of Sonic beverages and engaging in witty repartee.

    I love Jack In The Box commercials. They're absurd and completely funny, and have created their own world to inhabit.

    I also enjoy the Emerald Nuts commercials mentioned above. Some commercials really do display wit and storytelling on a par with narrative TV and film.

    On the topic, car commercials are uniformly and without exception horrible. Any ideas why?

    Ooh! I just remembered a great one! The Geico (I think?) car insurance commercial with voiceover actor Don La Fontaine! "In a world... where both of our cars were totally underwater..."

    I think there are a lot of very creative people who are earning a living with their craft through advertising. It gets a bad rap. But car commercials DO suck, nearly universally. Except V-Dub! Those are great, particularly the ones with the nihilist from The Big Lebowski.

    I have seen so many hilarious commercials I can't possibly name them all... so I am going to nod to the only one I can recall that has ever choked me up, even after the original viewing:

    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I love most of the Geico commercials.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I had a few of my own ideas for Geico commercials.

    I also laugh at those Pepto-Bismol commercials for some reason.

    These commercials actually showed in the Chicagoland area & I do miss them because they always made me laugh. They still do.

    I love those also. The actors they use are improv specialists. The commercials are totally unscripted.

    Second City, right? I had only seen a few of them on various VH1 meta-shows.
