Funny Commercials That Make Me Laugh Uncontrollably
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.
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.
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.
