Favorite Commercials, Pt. 3


Singin' In The Rain Remix (Volkswagon Golf GTI)
"The original, updated."

After watching Singin' In The Rain for the first time a few weeks ago, I was reminded of this too cool for words reimagining of its most famous scene. Now I'm hoping for a sequel featuring a remixed version of "Make 'Em Laugh." (Video)

Wrestling Abe Lincoln (Diet Mountain Dew)
"I'll give you a reply!"

I just saw this commercial for the first time last night. I didn't actually laugh at all while watching it, but I started to innocently chuckle as it was ending. Soon I was laughing uncontrollably, and continued to do so for a couple of minutes. My favorite part has to be when he whacks the guy doing the old timey boxer routine over the head with a chair. (Video)


Black & Decker Snake Light
"Yeah I'm the snake light, I get around 'n' round 'n' round..."

My friend Scott and I used to sing this jingle all the time back in the day. I'm still not sure why we found it so awesome, but that doesn't change the fact that it is. (Video)

Partnership for a Drug-Free America 1
"You, alright! I learned it by watching you!"

Man the dad in this is such a jerk. He has the nerve to interrupt his son with "Answer me!" as he is trying to answer, then we find out he was a druggie all along. And what about that mustache? Jerk. Jerk. Jerk. (Video)

Partnership for a Drug-Free America 2
"This is drugs. This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?"

The anti-drug public service announcements of the 80's could totally beat up those "Truth" ads we see nowadays, am I right or am I right? (Video)

How Many Licks? (Tootsie Pops)
"How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop? The world may never know."

Here is another classic ad from my youth, but I have a few lingering questions, namely, is that kid wearing any clothes, and how can he let that conniving owl get away with chomping down his entire tootsie pop? (Video)

I'd never seen that Abe Lincoln commercial. Gotta love the old-timey fisticuffs.

That singin' in the rain thing was creepy.

And you failed to mention the Scrubs parody of the "I learned it from watching you!" commercial where J.D. imagines the future when his son is addicted to coffee. Lucky for you, I found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uNcYKt3XXE

Oh, that snake light, hours of entertainment from 15 seconds of TV.
