I liked the Blockbuster "use the mouse" ad. We cracked up when the rabbit was sliding that mouse back and forth.
Careerbuilder.com had the best series of ads, I thought. Those guys getting netted for a "volunteer" event was hilarious.
Bud was just so-so. (The Rock/Paper/Scissor ad was a rip-off of the Sprint ad when the guy throws his phone at the other guy.) Coke seemed pointless...but the video game one was interesting. I couldn't believe Coke did an ad featuring a man who had never had one.
Goulet gets an honorable mention. How can you NOT like Robert Goulet??
I didn't think they were all that bad either. I think everyone's expectations are a little overblown. I liked the Careerbuilder ads and I was glad they didn't use the monkeys again (That'd be 3 years in a row, wouldn't it?) I especially liked the line "Sign out, please." from the security guard just before they all ran off the cliff.
Bud's ads were ok...I liked the muddy dog imitating a dalmation better than the crabs worshiping the cooler, tho. Laughed at the rock, paper, scissors ad, but it was just the way the guy arched over backward as he fell over. Slapstick always gets me...
My favorite was actually the Car-r-r-r-r-ne Asada ad from Taco Bell. Like Ricardo Montalban. Ricardo Montalban? followed by Ricardo Montalban's unmistakable voice. C'mon, it was funny! Lighten up!
