Great commercials






I saw this great ad for Droid phones yesterday.


I'm not sure it quite beats last year's excellent VW commercial, featuring a pint-sized Darth Vader, but it's close.

Here's the Vader one, in case you want to decide for yourself:


One thing's for sure, they both leave me smiling - in the case of the Droid commercial, it's the look on the salesman's face which does the trick.

How about you?

Which one do you prefer?

I laughed my ass off at the Verizon commercial the other day, and my wife came in to ask what was so funny. After I showed her, she said "Okay, that'll be me...."

I think we can all relate, or if not, we know someone who can :)

The VW ad wins hands down for me. First time I've seen it. Great stuff. :)

The VW/Lil' Darth Vader commercial makes me laugh my ass off every time I see it.

Neither. ;) This is my current favorite:



I love the suggestion that there's an entire organization handling this sort of thing. XD

Surprised kid trumps crying mom and daughter, eh? :)

Actually, Jon, it was Dad's love that got me. He made his boy's dream come true. Gotta love that.

To tie the two themes together, I guess those were the Droids they were looking for!

I totally identify with the first commercial-- not so much the fact that could understand each other while sobbing but that the mom was dependent on technology. I live in MD and my daughter spent all 4 years of college in Arizona. I do not know how my mother could bear to put her kids on a plan without cell phones and IM!

I love the Volkswagen one - makes me laugh every time. The kid in the suit, and his reaction at the end is excellent!

Especially since we can't see his face :)

I've seen the Droid commercial, and I like it. But, I ADORE the VW commercial.

I suspect that one will still have me smiling years from now :)
