Thursday Thirteen #23: Favorite Commercials

I watch commercials less often than I have in the past even though I watch more TV these days. I usually use time during commercials to do things or read email, but every so often I still find a favorite. Here are 13 of my all-time favorites.

You may notice a musical theme with a lot of these commercials. I'm a musical person, so these are the types of commercials that tend to stick with me. Most of these I remembered, but I rounded out my list by searching online (I refused to put in more than 3 PC/Mac commercials since I've already done an entire TT on those).

I LOVE commercials when they're well done. Great picks and a great list. I have a fondness for PC vs Mac, too.

I am not very commercial savvy. First of all, I'm not a huge TV watcher. Second of all, if the TV is on, I'm usually doing something else during commercials. Third, if I watch TV, it's usually stuff I've taped on DVR, so I don't watch commercials. I feel like I am missing out on major pop culture!

I hardly ever see commercials these days because almost everything i watch is recorded and time shifted, Hooray for fast forward!
