    Honda Civic commercial. The guy's voice makes me want to put the clicker through the tv.

    That's another doosey. What an bunghole that idiot is.

    Indeed. I was wondering when someone was going to catch that. New shows start this year right?

    They should be starting up again. They came out with new episodes last summer and are slated to start again (if they haven't already) with new ones for the spring. But nobody broadcasts it in canada....you gotta download unfortunately.

    Just to stay on topic here I would say that my best-loved commercial is "Wheeere's the Beef?!?!?"

    The Priceline.com commercials with Kirk and Spock were pretty good.

    Yeah. Spock had to gain a lot of weight, hit the tanning machine and get fitted for a crazy fur coat and other fine Donkey threadz.

    I can't believe Shatner is 80 years old. I thought he was in his 60's.

    ...or commercials that open with a blaring alarm clock. No one likes that noise. If I can associate your product with one of those ads, I'll avoid it. Diddle that Dung.
