Darryl Waltrip for Toyota Trucks!

"Say, Darryl, what would you have done if you hadn't been a race car driver?"

Hilarious results follow.

Edited to fix typos. Grrr.

That Slim Jim inline skater commercial. Just cracks me up when the music is all jamming and you expect this guy to start ripping tricks on the ramp and he just bites it.... bad. So funny.

For some reason, that little gymnast girl in the M-Azing candy bar ad -- where she does these weird contortionistic moves in complete silence -- well, amazes me. Mostly because I know I could never do what she does! :)

My all time favorite Geico ad... TINY HOUSE!

When I first saw that ad, I thought for sure that Fox had really run out of ideas, and yet, I couldn't wait to watch it!

Runner up goes to the Speed Racer ad. Mad props to Speed!

I like the USA Network promos for Dead Zone (with Johnny Smith and the cat) and The 4400 (with Maia and her baseball-loving friend, or Maia and her mother at the maternity ward).

There is no commercial worth stopping for. The Johnny and 4400 commercials irritate me because they mess me up and when I see them I think I'm FF over the show. ;)

I'll second this! My wife and I *still* stop to watch that ad, even though it's fairly old by now. Just hilarious!

Dale Jarrett's UPS commercials. Especially the latest one after the truck was modified with "a couple spare engines they had laying around".

I'm embarrassed to admit having the very same thoughts :D

The telephone commercial with the guy watching the striptease on the cell phone.

"Your wife called."
:D

Looks like if there's an award to be taken, Geico's running away with it. I love the Geico "Caveman" spots. If you've seen them, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't...

Voiceover: "Using Geico.com is so easy, even a caveman could do it."

Cut to cavemen in a sophisticated, modern house. One says "That's so condescending."

There's a follow-up spot where the Geico spokesman has taken the cavemen to a nice restaurant. He's apologizing, saying he didn't know "you guys" (the cavemen) were still around. The waiter then comes. One orders some upmarket dish. The other just sits back in his chair, disgusted, and quips that he's lost his appetite.

Who comes up with this stuff? I still laugh every single time I see that spot... Which is a lot during SpikeTV's weekday 5 hour afternoon Trek block.

I kept wishing they'd actually make that show. I think it's the only reality TV i'd watch.

The only ads I stop for now are the horribly produced low-budget local spots for lawyers or "pimp rim" shops. Lowell "The Hammer" Stanley has "big brass balls" (balls beeped out, of course) and he'll sue the crap out of you. And "YOU GETTIN' SPINNAZ FOR CHRISTMAS DOWN AT HOT WHEELZ!" These commercials crack me up.

While I'm not normally attracted to skinny girls, (sorry, skinny Ladies), I am, oddly enough, intrigued by beautiful women in their underwear. So, I tend to hit the brakes when I pass over one of the new "Victoria's Secrets" spots.

Go figure. :)

I thought "Tiny House" was so good I did a vidcap of it so I can watch it whenever I want. Great stuff. I agree with the earlier comment(s) that someone should actually make that show. I would be all over that. Have to disagree on the other Geico ads, though -- I don't like any of them.
