Sweetest Xmas commercial ever  
This is the one and only Xmas commercial that doesn't make me want to rip out an advertiser's colon:

The classic Eat 'n Park Star commercial

I include the link here because you probably haven't seen it before. It's for a chain of restaurants local to Pittsburgh, Eat 'n Park. Kinda like Friendly's, but nicer (the Friendly's circus decor scares me) and with a bakery. And smiley cookie goodness. I miss Eat 'n Park... anyway, they've aired this commercial every year for ages now, so it's very much a part of this season for me.

When the Penguins and Steelers go to the playoffs, Eat 'n Park sometimes makes commercials that diss the opposing teams. ;)

Edit: Oh wait, I also really like the Planters commercial with the baby peanut opening his presents... but I can't find a link to that one.

Edit: Douchelord is my new favorite word.

That would be Amanda's favorite commercial. It's been a long time since I've seen a commercial I really liked. Last I can really think of is the Nike Warriors commercial. Big Ben. Urlacher. LT. Cool masks. Yeah, I dig it.

...I just love that omnidirectional gazelle mask on LT. Also, you can read the rationale behind each mask. Masks are cool. Where was I? Oh yeah.

There was a nerdy commercial I really liked for Street Fighter on the GBA or some other handheld... I can't find it online for the life of me. Nerd has slurpie and is playing handheld. Bully and entourage arive on BMXs. Bully steals slurpie and finishes it with that big slurping sound you get when a drink finishes. Freeze frame on bully's face. At the bottom of the screen, punctuated by the sound of punches, you see down, down-towards, towards, a. The final a punctuated by "hadoken!" Next frame, a shot of the empty slurpie falling to the ground. Cut to some pictures of the game. I dunno, I found it amusing. :)

Douchelord... I like it. I was running out of words to describe my boss.

I love the Planters commercial. I cry every time I see it. Sadly, it's not be on the television this year!
