    Does Europe have better TV commercials?

    Seems that they do.

    Car Commercial

    Beer commercial Can't find this brand at the store either. Guess they don't export.

    Jeans commercial


    Now, why are most American TV commercials just blather and noise?
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    3 ads made over a 15 year period is not much to go on. Perhaps you just don't see the bad ones that are made in Europe.

    I know there are plenty of crap ads on TV. I used to work for an agency that was proud that they created about 5,000 TV ads a year with a crew of 16.

    But here's an array of 10 created in the U.S. Ad Week, Top-10 commercials, Sept 14-21.

    Of course, no commercials might be even better.

    Awww, c'mon. God bless America!

    This is one of my favorite commercials of all time.



    If you lived in California/Arizona/whereeverelsetheywere back in the '80s you had the glory of Federated commercials



    Vern Fonk gets close to that kinda perfection at times.

    1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1997 KHS Comp * 1990-ish Scapin * Olde Western Auto Cruiser.

    Since Coke's product is so cheap, they have a little money to spend on advertising.

    Happiness Factory


    They even do sequels

    Really? Those are terrible ads. What am I missing? I'm not sure this isn't sarcasm, because those ads are lame.

    No. TVs commercially sold on EU are PAL... clearly inferior to NTSC.
