    What makes a commercial or advertisement funny? Why is it funny to you?

    Different people find different things funny. What is funny to you? What do you think makes certain commercials or ad campaigns appeal to lots of people?

    I think when an ad.,doesn't try too hard to be funny or smart then it usually is. I like the kids and animal ones in particular - both are so natural that it makes their antics genuinely funny! On the other hand you get the adults dressing up dumb and trying to be funny, they are just a bore and I turn the sound off, or if it's really bad I turn channels - I tend to switch channels a lot!

    I think the funniest commercials are the ones that bring about a reality of our lives and twist it to make it funny.

    Probably situational personal relevance. When I see something portrayed and I have made the same mistake it shows me how ridiculous I probably looked.
