I know it's rare, but there are some commercials I do like. Here's one I see on occasion on the Weather Channel. The music is done by some duo called Asche and Spencer. I think I may check them out. Sounds like a new age kind of music.

The song is very reminiscent of Pink Floyd's "Cluster One".

I always liked the ones for Cars.com where the guy said "I'm glad you did this for me, otherwise, I was going to have to resort to plan B"

My favorite one was the crazed looking dude in the ring of fire...."better step out of the circle to avoid any confusion" laugh.gif

Start Me Up - Windows 95

Very much of a blast from the past. But was playing some Stones tonight and was reminded of this TV commercial from 1994 extolling the virtues of  Microsoft's Windows 95 o/s

Great music: W95 less so  comp26.gif

AT&T's Rollover Minutes ads are great.  The timing is just perfect.
This is probably my favorite of the bunch:
