Mine is local. Anyone who grew up innor near Chicago, or had WGN as a cable channel in the 1970s or 1990s, knows of Victory Auto Parts. If you had a grease stained t-shirt, a wide leather watch band, and a car that died you too could score a lid courtesy of Victory Auto.

The guy who played the car owner was amazing. He fit the part to a t. He goes to open the car door and it falls off. And his hand gestures are brilliant. Going to find this commercial and post it, it beats 588-2300 Empire by a mile.

....Mine is an airline commercial from - I think - the early 80s, where Joe Average is ushered through First Class, which is a non-stop luxury party, then pushed through a curtain into Steerage Hell, with a warped record playing on a Victrola, peasants milking a cow, and a Baba Yaga lookalike shuffling past giving him the evil eye.

There was one years ago, I *think* it was for Corona. A beautiful couple run down a beautiful beach and lie down on their towels. He says, "Honey, pinch me." And wakes up in a concrete cube farm with a huge fan in the wall behind hime, slowly spinning. I've never been able to find that one on youtube.

There was a commercial for Sear air conditioners that played on the cartoon channel about 50 times a day. No exaggeration.


I'll call now.

Great ones up thread, some I recall, some I don't.
I'll try to recall and post one or two.

European commercials, however, will always take the cake.

Xerox commercial for Ethernet (yes, I'm an engineer).  Only saw it a few times. Guy in his office, explaining about Ethernet and how it can connect your printer, your scanner, your computer, your copying machine...all the while, using a sharpie to draw these (and the connecting Ethernet) on the blank wall of his office (where there's an Ethernet outlet).

End of the commercial, you see two other engineers walk past through the open office door, one says to the other, "Is he drawing on his walls again?"

This would have been in the late 80s, early 90s, when Xerox, Intel and DEC were the big players in Ethernet, and Xerox still thought they were competitive in the market.
