I hope the execs at GM didn't pay too much for what is basically the regurgitation of the Canadian Tire campaign from the early 2000's.

The Ford Focus one with the "take back my life song" make me want to vomit.

The one that comes to my mind first is the LFA and breaking glass one. So simple and elegant.

My least favourite are the commercials that lead people to think if they buy he jeep/subara/suv they will suddenly live an outdoors lifestyle

But this is true! My RAM truck came with a job at a construction site, a can of chewing tobacco and a shotgun. My voice also lowered 2 octaves.

Back in 1999 VW released the ugliest Beetle ever and they created a flash website to promote what they called a new element called turbonium

I thought that was a great commercial although I hate the look of the car and would never buy one

I thought these were kind of humorous:
