A lot of times, a bit of humor is as close as the next commercial break. Post some links to some of your favorites.

I always get a laugh from the Kraft Happy Cow commercials:

Those are great. I had to look up what Irn Bru was since I'd never heard of it before. I hope members will post some from their countries of other products I've never heard of. :) Interesting!

Irn Bru is great stuff, but only mainly available in Scotland. Not sure I've seen it in London.

Ugh!! irn bru is like liquid bubblegum. It's really horrible. A few years ago they brought out an irn bru chew bar which was like chewing pure sugar. AFAIK this was withdrawn after complaints from dentists! (that may be apocryphal). There's a good wikki entry on irn bru (good to know they give coke and pepsi a runfor their money here in scotland, again I have heard say that this is the only country in the world where coke/pepsi are not the number 1 soft drink!

this always makes me laugh!

That was good. Such emotion. :)


My husband always laughs at this one. It's the baby in the back, with the red shirt, that he thinks is funny.

I always feel bad for this little guy everytime I see this commercial.
The song puts a lot of emotion into it.

They make heavy duty clothing for work and outdoor activities.

Note in that commercial that (supposedly) the wolf's tooth did not go through the coat that that guy was wearing.

The annual US football Super Bowl is where companies unleash their wildest, and usually funniest, ads on TV. In fact, many people watch just for the commercials. Here are a couple from a year or so ago:
