Thread Purpose: Show a commercial - ANY commercial - you feel the 'Mindless, wandering Adhound Marketing Goofs' can use for inspiration to pitch a product or supplier. One that successfully 'sold' you would be best; otherwise ones that have left the corporate name burned into your brain. It can be from ANYTIME; need not be current.
 
This whole idea came to me after seeing a few of the NEW Capital One Viking 'Triple Rewards' Commercials (yes, they're baaaack in absolute classics - don't see the videos available yet!!!Big%20smile)
 
Anyway...Capital One has some great marketing folks...EVERYONE knows who Capital One is, because of them.

Oh man, I love that new Viking one.  They overload the express aisle at the market and some old lady says, "10 items or less buster!!"
That ad is brand new, I did find this one. The Pillage People.LOL

It's an insurance company, Faith.

Here's a slightly better one for the same company.

Maybe this should be in 'Commercials that Confuse and Bewilder' - but it sure is interesting!
 
...now all I can think about is John Prine singing 'Paradise'...time to bounce to another thread...

Snickers ads have been so good for soooo long. Having just started a new thread on the new ones, I decided to dig up an old one that STILL makes me laugh! Big%20smile

ohhhhh...after replying to PA, in the 'Quaker Oats' thread, I simply couldn't see how this thread would be complete without some more 'inspiring' commercials...

Actually, rather than starting the Huggies 'Dad' thread, I should've posted them both, here.

In my opinion, the greatest commercial of all time:



I was a kid in the early-to-mid 70s when this PSA was run. It worked, I never throw on the ground, never throw trash out of the car, ever. And I cringe when I see other people throw trash - even cigarette butts - out of the car.

Geezer - I remember that commercial - they really should soak the airwaves with it considering the obvious need versus the short run it had.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Today, I got stuck on more humor...I saw a very slightly different version of this one; the scene when they yell, "HE SCORES!", was slightly more suggestive...had ME running for the 'JFM'!
