I enjoy commercials. I don't like ads, but I enjoy commercials. The difference? In my mind, one is selling me something, the other is a fun way to tell me about something. Attempts to sell me something bother me because I'm not going to buy the thing. But I'm happy to have a laugh.
But I wonder: How many commercials are effective? I have yet to purchase something from the companies who produce my favorite commercials.
But I did draw a picture of it:
Of course, there's nothing from Sonlight that has pictures of me in a towel. But I do show up in spandex in a couple MathTacular videos. You can see one such sample here (half-way down the page).
The concept that Old Spice has put together with these short videos responding to Tweets is fun. And I love the fact that he talks to his daughter in the aforementioned video. That little human touch is inspiring.
So what are you favorite commercials? And have you purchased anything from the brands that produce your favorites?
