My favorite thing on television.

We have always tried to be careful about what our kids watch on television. Our rule is if you have never watched it before the first time you watch it one of us has to watch it with you. I try not to say no to things just because I think they are ridiculous and stupid and worthless (Silent Library) and only say no to things that are really inappropriate (Family Guy and 2 1/2 Men). 

But here lately the thing that I have a problem with on television isn't the programing. It is the commercials.  First it was the Viagra/Cialis commercials. I didn't like them but they were kinda vague and only made me slightly annoyed. Then the Extends commercials came out. Less vague and a little more concerning. Now it is the KY commercials. Not vague at all and I am not watching them with my 13 and 11 year old in the room. 

So what is the answer? We use the DVR to record pretty much everything and fast forward through ALL commercials. Now that has solved the inappropriate commercial issue but it has caused another one. Truth be told, now I don't get to watch my favorite thing on television. Because, truth be told, as weird as this makes me, I LOVE commercials. Not all of them. Just a select few that I think are truly brilliant ad campaigns.

I am thinking that I can't be alone or the commercials during the Superbowl wouldn't be such a big deal. So in the spirit of what I have lost, thanks to the fact that there are more sexual references during the commercial break than during the actual shows, here are a few of my very favorites:

I have to say I absolutely LOVE "The Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials. I love all of them they are funny. They make me laugh. Here is just one of them for your enjoyment:

I mean come on how can you not love these? Here are some interesting facts about the most interesting man in the world:

  • "When in Rome, they do as he does."

  • "His mother has a tattoo that reads 'son'".

  • "At museums he is allowed to touch the art."

  • "Sharks have a week dedicated to him."

  • "He is the life of parties he has never attended."

  • and my favorite

  • "Both sides of his pillow are cool."

  • The Lauren Wallace Geico commercials are some of my all time favorites. Although they might not be as funny to those who aren't Nascar fans.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mayhem guy from Allstate!

    Okay and I am sure you have probably all seen this one but I absolutely LOVE it

    Here is a new that I love mostly because of the music but I like the commercial as well:
