Or most nostalgic for you.

This is Richard Lewis doing a commercial for a failed fruit drink called "Boku". In the ad, he speaks about Boku being an "adult drink" that's not for babies. I thought he was being completely serious as a youngin, and I remember walking through the aisles and seeing Boku and thinking "wow, I better stay away from that shit or I'll get yelled at".

Also, Boku sounds like a sex act. No wonder it was marketed towards adults.

Not my favorite commercial, but one of the most nostalgic. In fact I doubt a better piece of early 2000s nostalgia exists. Mine's for a failed drink as well.

I love that Guinness ad with the surfing and the waves that look like horses (I would, wouldn't I).

And an old Toys r Us ad. Unfortunately it was an English ad, and we never had that store in Ireland until recently I think.

Oh, and the Budweiser Christmas ads...with the horses....of course:o

These are my favorite commercials. I would sing them every time they played on the TV. I love all the freecreditreport.com commercials, but the third one is my all-time fave. Considering they are just advertisements, the music they play is surprisingly solid!
Now that I think about it, the bicycle one almost seems like a rip off the "Why Don't You Get A Job?" video, but it's probably just a coicedence.

I went to school with a dude who looks exactly like the freecreditreport.com guy.

I can't believe freecreditreport.com is able to get so much national ad time, seeing how that company is a total 100% scam and not legit at all.

I figured as much, but I just like the songs. I don't condone them or call them for a report score, haha. I enjoy the songs only.

Just because, how could a company with such a pleasant commercial jingle be such assholes? lol.

Haha that Michael J Fox Pepsi ad was awesome. I don't think I remember it though.

Around :24 seconds in: Why is the bottom of the Pepsi bottle black? It looks like there's soda in there lol.

I've been searching for several years for this one St. Jude's commercial featuring Jennifer Aniston that I saw maybe twice before they pulled it, but it's no where to be found on youtube or anywhere else I can think of. It went something like:

Child: I hit my head on the trampoline and started getting headaches so my parents took me to the doctor.
Jennifer Aniston: But it wasn't the trampoline was it? (turns to camera) It was a brain tumor.

And I immediately burst into laughter.

Here's a bit of a mind blower...

Does this still frame trigger your memory? It's the guy from "It's Always Sunny".

Well, I looked into it a little more and it sorta makes sense now. freecreditreport.com itself is indeed a scam, but it's a subsidiary of Experian, so I guess since a reputable company came up with something that should be disreputable, they're able to get all this ad time for it. So that's pretty disgusting- they make a shitload of one-time revenue by scamming people with this thing, and then they continue making money even after people realize it's a scam because they're fucking Experian.

Free Credit Report has an annual advertising budget of 72 fucking million dollars. Dear fucking holy balls.

No one is saying otherwise. No one thinks you're endorsing the company or anything. This is just the way the conversation progressed.
