I love ads with men and babies. Like fathers being all nice to their kids and feeding them cereal or something.
Ads like that make me make happy squeaking noises. Star Or this ad where this kid is talking to his grandfather in sign language about Disney or something.
Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me

Yeah, that Vikings one is funny. I love funny ads. Like that one with the chick wearing big stuff to look skinny.

These drunk driving commercials with people that have cars full of booze crack me up.

None. There are NO ads on TV or Radio or the Internet that I like, let alone love. I very rarely see one that actually does it's job, and informs me of a product or service that I need or want. But even more rarely do those ads do so in a way that is entertaining for more than two or three repetitions.

There are ads that I hate less than others. There are none that I love. I cannot begin to imagine one that might ever possibly fall into that empty category.

Sorry.

I gotta say I almost agree with Ad. The Aflac commercials actually make me laugh out loud. There are a couple others, but I can't think of them now.

By the way, I am one who DOESNT like the vikings commercials. I personally think they are stupid.

I love this commercial when these folks are driving in a car and and they pass by all of these white big words and the guy says, Honey, I think we're in a car commercial.

Whatabout the Got Milk commercial, where the jerk dies and thinks he's in heaven when he starts woofing down chocolate chip cookies and opens a fridge full of milk only to find they're all empty.  That is my all-time favorite.
Or the plane crash with 2 survivors.  One guy finds a twix and says he thinks he hears a chopper.
While he's scarfing down the first twix bar and pulling out the second, the other survivor says, "I don't see anything."  With a mouthful of Twix, the first guy hollars back, "Keep Looking!"  How can you not love that?

Pretty much anything with a cat in it.
 
Doesn't have to be Morris, any cat will do. I even liked the Crave cartoon cat

I just saw a new to me Bud light "Too Light vs. Too Heavy" commercial that I really liked. It was "Dog Training" and the first part is the guy showing his friend how he taught his poodle to "speak" and the dog comes up with a wimpy little "woof". That was too light. The next part the dog is driving a car with the two guys in the backseat, and it's running over fire plugs, causing accidents and the owner says to his friend, "Pretty sweet, huh?" or something like that. That was too heavy.
 
I laughed my ass off and re-played it like four times.

Artistically inspiring commercials i.e the current Fedex commercial. Using only cardboard? GENIUS :D.
funny or cute commercials with dogs or animals.
Foreign commercials. It's always interesting to see what commercials outside of the US are like.

I'm sure many find this one to be annoying.
I find it to be quite adorable.   So much so I don't even hear the woman talking about the good stuff about the cereal.

The giggle/laugh gets me every time.



This is currently my favorite commercial.

I probably sound evil, but I hate the sound of kids laughing, especially this one. She sounds so annoying. The only one I like is that really popular YouTube video of the baby cracking up at the sound of paper ripping. It's probably the annoying baby-talking mother in the commercial too. Bonding over Rice Krispies cereal. -_-

My favorite type of commercials were/still are the Coca Cola polar bear commercials. 
 
They were less about Coke and more about the polar bear family hangin out .

Those are good.  They remind me of the ones I like even more - the Norelco shaver ads with Santa, always shown during Rudolph, 'back in the day.
