Ok, with the possible exception of the Dr. Pepper commercials with David Naughton, this is the best commercial ever,

Wow, not sure about “best” but that sure brought back memories, thanks for posting. Hadn’t though of it in years.

And you know, aside from writing the song, it probably cost Coke what, $5,000 to make it?

Here are two of my favorites:

Zooey Deschanel The Fabric of out Lives

Cate Bosworth Cotton Commercial

Zooey is gorgeous, and I love the huge walkin closet with the string of lights in the second one.

$250,000 in 1971; an unheard of amount back then for a :30spot. I’d just broken into advertising on Mad Ave, in NYC, working for JWalterThompson.

Here is one of the funniest I have seen- it is Swedish but cracks me up because the main character has a deep Southern accent.

Reminds me of a slightly off-color joke from that era.

The world's greatest salesman was determined to make Pepsi as big a name as Coke. He went all over the world promoting and selling Pepsi with great success, but still hadn't achieved his goal. So, finally, he decided he would have to go where Coke wasn't even sold to promote Pepsi.

He disappeared into the darkest jungles of Africa and sent back word of his great successes in converting the people of the jungle to Pepsi.

Then, one day, the management of Pepsi failed to hear from him and grew concerned. More days passed and finally the days grew into weeks and months. At last, they determined that they owed the world's greatest salesman at least the dignity of a search party to discover what happened to him.

So the search party spent months deep in the jungle, delighted to see that Pepsi was being used widely but concerned because each tribe to whom they inquired of the departed salesman just pointed them deeper into the jungle.

Finally, they came upon a tribe who told them they could explain the whereabouts of the great salesman. He was very persuasive they said. So persuasive that they invited him for dinner one day and he accepted. Pepsi, he told them, would go good with any food, so they ate most of him for dinner and he was right.

"Most of him?", asked the search party, hoping they could perhaps at least take a bone home for a proper and honored burial. "Oh, yes," answered the tribal chief, "all of him except for that thing between his legs."

"And that thing," asked the leader of the search party, "Do you still have it?"

"Of course we do," answered the tribal chief, "the thing has been smoked, dried and preserved. We are waiting for the salesman from Coca-Cola to call."

"And why is that?" asked the leader of the search party.

"Because, don't you know that things go better with Coke?" replied the tribal chief in astonishment.

Well, I haven’t seen every commercial made, but my alltime favorite is the one where the guy gets a disappointing gift and the lady takes a photo of him, and then shows him the photo — and he sees a brand new car outside the window behind him, in the photo.
Always wanted to try that on someone.

Among current commercials, I like this one:

“Like Father, Like Son” | 2012 Chevy Silverado | Chevrolet

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mrl-mm-7WM8

Not funny, but very touching and sweet.

Bravo to Chevrolet and their Agency!
