Illustrating that things are not always as they seem, Ameriquest takes a cat and a man cooking dinner and manages to make him look like a cat-killing monster. While I can't say this would make me want a mortgage, it did make me giggle, which is a lot more than I can say about most commercials that try to be funny.
Ameriquest: That Killed Him
Once again, Ameriquest reminds us that sometimes things aren't as they appear. This time they tell the story of a team of doctors who seem to have purposefully killed their patient. To be fair though, if you see a doctor use a defibrillator to kill a fly, it's probably a good sign that you should never check in at that hospital again.
EDS: Cat Herders
The internet loves cats, which is why this commercial featuring a troop of cat-herding cowboys was destined to be a success. Sure the company seems to be stretching pretty hard to try to connect themselves to the action, but hey, it's still funny.
Doritos: House Rules
You don't step into another man's house and start macking on his mama and his Doritos. It doesn't matter if the other man is only a kid. One cool thing to note about this commercial is that it was actually made by a fan as part of the Doritos Crash The Superbowl Contest.
Boost Mobile: The Boost Mobile Shuffle
Mike Ditka and The Bears performing a sped up, modified version of The Superbowl Shuffle? That's fresh. And while paying more for mobile service might be wrong, it is certainly better than a tight end in a cheetah-print thong.
Bud Light: Jackie Moon
In a perfect crossover commercial, Will Ferrell helped to promote his upcoming film, Semi-Pro, by appearing in character as Jackie Moon for this hilarious series of Bud Light commercial outtakes. Remember to suck one tonight.
Budweiser: Clydesdale Donkey
The King of Beers reminds you to never stop believing in your dreams with this heart-warming tale of a donkey who wished he could be a Budweiser Clydesdale.
Reebok: Terry Tate Office Linebacker
What happens when an office hires linebacker Terry Tate to help motivate employees? Productivity skyrockets 46% as employees start doing whatever they can to avoid his killer tackles. This one gets bonus points for the “Office Space” TPS cover sheets reference.
Cash 4 Gold: Ed McMahon and M.C. Hammer
Taking advantage of the two best-known bankrupt celebrities, Cash 4 Gold invites you to send in any of your unwanted gold –even gold medallions of you wearing a gold medallion or your gold hip replacements.
Bud Light: Ability To Breathe Fire
Some things are a lot cooler in theory than they are in real life. Bud Light helps to illustrate this point by showing what happens when allergies and fire breathing are combined. The results are a lot less romantic or bad ass than you might hope.
