One of the best is presented by Wells Fargo.  A stagecoach traveling thru the snow, snowmen feeding the horses their carrot nose's, snowwomen/children smiling, the stage driver tipping his hat, and the stage arriving in town for the holidays.  Perhaps this is not the best description but the commercial is so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes.

I love the adorable AT&T commercials with the little kids. They always leave a smile on my face.

Love the Bud ad the best. Sear's has a few good ad's now for the holidays.  Do not need any rich or famous people for ad's..

Thanks to four DVR's I rarely watch commercials - Even Sports I watch on a delay to fast forward though the commecials - I do watch the super bowl commercial but that is about all.  The farmer and Budweiser ones are the two best.

Hey, you forgot the one where it promised that "If you like your healthcare, you can keep it."

Never trust a politician when its lips are moving....or not.

I have to admit, I loved Geico's "Hump Day" ad.  Also love all the Wounded Warrior PSA's.  The Wells Fargo ad with the Clydesdales that get fed the carrots by the snowmen etc., is pretty touching too.They hold the mortgage on my house and though they may not have a sterling reputation with the public, advertisements like that are great P.R. That coupled with the fact the WF. worked with my husband and I after we both lost our jobs to help us keep our home--something I'm truly grateful for this Christmas.

**** NOTE TO LYRICA   *****  I am SICK of seeing your iditotic ad on this computer!! I pay for internet and I don't want to see your junk.  Don't feel alone.  I am sick of all "ask your doctor" and "tell your doctor" junk!  I am sick of the FDA and sick of the Legal Drug Lords!  It is my opinion you drug lords are rsponsible for deaths untold!  I have almost stopped watching the "ask your doctor" box because of the idiots puking "ask your doctor!"  Now, to all the other people, I ask you "am I the only one sick of "ask your doctor", "tell your doctor" junk?"  I like the internet.  It is informative.  But, it is also OFFENSIVE to have to put up with "ask your doctor " junk all the time!! I am sick of them!!!

Go to youtube and watch the "Wedding" ad for Fiat. Beautifully done, and very creative. Not sure about the car, but great ad.

The commercial with the owls was funny!  Sadly, the entertaining, clever and funny commercials run for a very limited time, but endlessly hammered by the stupid, boring and annoying ones too often and much too long!  If you big corporate advertises insist constantly inflicting your endless advertisements at us, make entertaining ones that we will actually watch and listen to.

Lets be real here.  Some of the best ads for the past several have been the ones for Publix .  The ad agency that does them deserve an award if only because they do what they are supposed to do which is make you remember who they are for.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market ended the Wednesday session on a mixed note. The tech-heavy Nasdaq displayed relative strength, climbing 0.4%, while the S&P 500 added 0.2% with five sectors settling in the green. For its part, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.2%) spent the entire session below its flat line.

Equities started the midweek affair on a rather unassuming note in the absence of market-moving news or economic releases. With those pieces missing from the equation, ... More
