Funny Commercials That Make Me Laugh Uncontrollably

Commercial Breaks

Commercials nowadays take up almost as much time as the shows and movies that we like to watch. When they come on, I often take a break, tune them out and do something else, or talk to whoever is in the room with me (even if it just happens to be a cat who won't say anything in return). But once in a while a commercial will come along that amuses me enough to watch again and again. After a while, it may get a little old. But some of them are so memorable that I will go out of my way to find them online, so I can laugh at them all over again. Here are a few of my favorites, including a couple of compilations.

Twix and Frankenstein

I saw this for the first time several years ago. It starts out so sweet that Frankenstein's reaction to what the little girl says is so unexpected.

Sun Fizz

At the beginning it's not even obvious that it's a Sprite commercial. love spoofs, and this is the type of thing I picture in my head when my mind drifts off during a boring commercial.

Method: Another Spoof (Warning: A Little Naughty)

Just like the Sprite commercial, this one pokes fun at another brand. I find it hysterical, and it gets the point across.

Low-Fat Tuna

This is another one I found online, since this is not an American product. I wasn't sure what kind of commercial it was going to be, but when the elevator door shut, I could completely relate! Not that low-fat tuna would help much, but it sure made a statement.

The Super Bowl is like "Super Commercial Day"

I am not a huge sports fan, but there is always a lot of buzz about the multi-million dollar commercials that abound the day of the Super Bowl. Often I like to visit with friends on that day to watch the game, eat some good food, and catch a glimpse of some of those ads that really should be memorable. Here are about 7 minutes of the funny ones from 2013.

Not a Product Ad, But Sure Made Me Laugh

This is similar to something I would think of, but would never do. If I were the husband, I would give her something productive to do with her time, so that she doesn't get into mischief.

Anti-boredom Campaign: Boredom Can Be Dangerous

What About You?

Can you think of any commercials that have tickled your funny bone in the past? Are there some that you remember to an extent, but don't recall what company they were of, or what time period they're from? With the internet, we can rediscover commercials we thought were gone forever!

      Vacation Trip,

      I enjoy watching funny commercials, too. At least it breaks up the monotony of the boring ones.

      Have a great weekend, and thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

      Martin,

      You're welcome. I'm glad you liked. Everyone has their own idea of what is funny, but it's great to share what really makes me laugh.

      Have a great weekend, and I look forward to reading more of your many poems and limericks. You must never take a break from writing!

      Rebecca,

      I love a good laugh, too. Putting this together last night was a little spontaneous, because I saw the links I saved for this hub, and started watching them. The best time to get an article like this done is when I am in the mood for it.

      I'm glad you liked this idea for a hub. It's the kind of thing I like to check out when I have the time, and I hope others enjoy them as much as I do.

      Have a great weekend, and thanks for taking the time to read and comment!

      Well, we don't have cable tv so I'm kind of out of the loop as far as commercials go. Thanks for including clips of them; they are quite funny.

      Have a peaceful Sunday, Kathryn!

      Bill,

      Most times commercials are annoying, so that's probably not a bad thing. I'm glad you enjoyed the clips I shared!

      Have a peaceful Sunday, too, and good luck with the research for your new series!

      My favorite of all is the Frankenstein one.

      Sharing this; we all need a great laugh.

      WND,

      I'm so glad you got some laughs out of it! When I started looking for these commercials a few weeks a while, it took time to find some of them. Sometimes I don't remember what company made it, and I have to really search.

      Haha, the Frankenstein is funny! So unexpected, because it looks like it's going to be so sweet.

      Thanks for sharing it. I agree, it's good to laugh every once in a while!

      Have a wonderful Sunday, and I hope your November is going well, so far!

      Really funny commercials, Kathryn. Thanks for the laughs. Sometimes the Super Bowl commercials are more interesting and certainly more humorous than the football game.

      drbj,

      I agree with you! That's why I jokingly call it "Super Commercial Sunday", because the commercials are so amusing. At least they should be, given the price tag!

      I'm glad you liked them. It was fun to gather these up to share with everyone!

      Thanks for taking the time to see this, and comment on it, and have a great day.

      I've only seen one of these so I have to say you've introduced me to the rest. Funny is always good, especially when it's a commercial you may be stuck sitting through. Thanks Kathryn for putting a smile on my face.

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      Mary,

      It's so nice to see you on my page! I just saw a very interesting article on Halloween costumes on your page that I will check out momentarily.

      I'm glad I introduced you to some "new" funny commercials. These really made me laugh, and I'm glad others can laugh with me.

      You're welcome, and thanks for taking the time to read/watch and comment. Have a great night!

      Thanks for voting up, sharing that commercial with me, and for sharing. I appreciate your comment, as well. Have a great day!

      Janet,

      Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed them. It was fun looking for the ones I remembered, and finding new ones.

      I was thrilled when I had the idea for this, because it's different than any other hub I have done.

      It's too bad you don't have many funny commercials in Germany. Hopefully some of them are amusing, anyway. Commercials can get a little boring.

      Thanks for the share, and for taking the time to read and comment. Have a fantastic day!

      Thank you for sharing, Kathryn! Some funny one! I especially loved the one for the super bowl maybe because we can't see them in Canada... so this is a great way to discover them :-))) Commercials are always better when they are humorous for sure! Thanks for sharing!

      You can't see the Super Bowl commercials in Canada?! I didn't know that. Those are some of the best ones that come out, too. It's nice that they're viewable online.

      Yes, I like the humorous commercials. There's nothing like getting a laugh out of them, rather than being impatient for them to get over, so we can watch a show or movie.

      Thanks for taking the time to read/watch and comment, and have a wonderful day!

      I'm glad you got a kick out of that one! I thought it was so funny when I was browsing funny commercials. It's nice to see ones that normally we wouldn't see on our own tvs.

      I love the lady in the boredom one. So funny! Especially since she looked like such a sweet, harmless lady.

      You're welcome, and thanks for checking this out, and commenting.

      Have a fantastic day!

      I completely agree with you. If we have to watch them, anyway, we may as well try to enjoy at least the ones that are amusing.

      The anti-boredom one really made me laugh.

      You're welcome, and thanks for taking the time to check this out and comment. Much appreciated!

      Have a great week.

      Thanks for the laughs. :)

      As a side note, stay tuned for an updated YeRoWriteO post. I had an unexpected positive response, so I'm going to tweak details (like maybe...a newsletter?) hehe. I hope you're well! xo

      Hi Kathryn, great article! There was a commercial years ago that made me cry laughing every time I watched it. I can't recall what it was but there was a cat laying on a sofa. A spring came loose in the sofa and the cat went flying up out the window or something like that. The cat wasn't hurt. But there was something about the commercial that got me every time. Some of them can be very entertaining.

      I love the Pepsi one with Jeff Gordon. My EX-drove race cars at the drag strip and stock car races.

      I sincerely hope that things are going well for you, and that you are settling O.K.

      Lol! A great Hub article, and I think you've proven that some of the adverts are better than the programmes they are slotted in between. Thank you, and saving this one for later for a proper look-see :)

      Good humour sure makes the truth more palatable.

      Love your cat pics!

      Have a lovely weekend,
