Best commercial on TV

If you make something wonderful, instead of muting the sound and averting our eyes we'll actually seek it out and watch it again and again.

Nota bene, those responsible for the awful Caveman and Flo GEICO spots.

Much to Mrs. Rocketboy's dismay.

Doubly so because I start laughing the second it starts.

Oh yeah, one more time -- speaking of commercials, I know I must've mentioned this a jillion times areddy but this has GOT to be one of the best ones ever. Or maybe it's just me. I mean, it IS me -- I would be doing exactly what that guy is doing, and dancin' it to Love Train, too! I don't know, just cracks me up...

Oh yeah, for what its worth, I have always envisioned the bookofjoe headquarters as looking pretty much exactly like Emerald City. The color is right, great eyecatching design, it's all sparkly, and everybody's clamoring to get in, I'm sure!

Yep, yep, the Lollipop Guild & that whole crowd hanging out at the Yellow Brick Road spiral, plus some of this,

mix it up with some 21st century and a Prius and you gets a spiffy ad.

You know what that means, though... There's a witch hanging out in there, undetected.
Maybe it's Flo...heh heh...

Down on Flo again Joe? And loving this?

Man, we'd have a fight about commercials if you ever stopped in my town or a cop of coffee..

Bring back the "Lollipop Gang"!

Very very clever. I see a whole lot of Wizard of Oz influence in there.

That is pretty wonderful. I loved the clouds in particular.
