    It's all gone commercial!

    Okay...
    I like the M&Ms commerical with Santa. "He is real." "They are real." Faint. I really like the new Polar Bear/Penguin Coke commercial. Sappy to be sure, but fun. I love the Corona "Feliz Navidad" commerical with the Christmas lights in the palm tree.

    However... the Lexus commercial with the big red bow on the car. Ha. Great. Thanks... souless, evil advertising company. So I guess we're aiming a little higher than a digital camera this year. Will she really love me if I buy her a Lexus, or really, really, really love me? And wouldn't it send up red flares as to how much you're paying attention if your significant other managed to sneak a brand new car into the garage without you knowing it?

    And the Honda commercial with the carolers wishing me happy Honda Days? I drive a Honda, I like my Honda, but I have no idea wtf a Happy Honda day is. Shut up. Just shut up.

    At least there aren't any, "Hope your Holidays are outbreak free... from your friends at Valtrex." commercials. There aren't, are there?

    And your favorite/least favorite Christmas commercials?

    Best: "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" A long long time ago- remember?


    Worst: There was one that they showed briefly late at night, then they banned it.
    It was Santa in a sleigh, gliding through the sky with the reindeer and gifts,
    ho ho ho-ing and all of a sudden, a heat sinking missle whistles toward him
    and blasts him away. Sudden silence except for the sound and sight of
    pieces of reindeer hitting the snow. It must have had one or two showings,
    then it was all over the news. Didn't even know what the commercial was.

    Anybody remember that one a few years back? It freaked me out big time.
    According to the news, kids who saw it thought Santa was dead. They showed
    it like two days before Christmas.

    Worst...hands down the Home Depot Elf. I have a feeling it's supposed to be funny and maybe it is to people but I'm always left with the "Okay then" reaction.

    Best Commercial I have ever seen BY FAR is the Honda "Cog" Commercial.


    EDIT!: here is a link to the commercial
