Hey blog world! I’ve done several awards post for movies and TV and such but I’ve never ever done an awards post for commercials so let’s get started!
Our 1st category is best PSA (that’s Public Service Announcement). The award goes to “Purse” from the Foundation for a Better Life! http://www.values.com/inspirational-stories-tv-spots/112-Purse. This PSA is totally awesome! It’s got black eyed peas music, suspense and doughnuts! I’ve seen countless amounts of PSA’s from the Foundation for a Better Life but this one is clearly their best which is exactly why this PSA has won the award!
Our next category is best voice actor in a commercial. That award goes to Gilbert Gottfried for his role as the AFLAC Duck . I love the AFLAC commercials. Not just because they’re funny. I love them also because my favorite actor is (well was) the voice of their duck mascot (why he isn’t anymore is too long of a story.) The AFLAC people sure made a terriffic choice when they chose Gilbert for their mascot! Here’s a video of one of my favorite AFLAC commercials http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2oz2PHdzlA!
Our next category is best dancing in a commercial. That award goes to the Bud Light commercial “Mr Really Really Really Bad Dancer”. Sure the title says he’s horrible but that’s exactly why he gets this award! Mr really really really bad dancer is so funny! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P78NbOx0r7U
Our next category is best food commercial. That award goes to the Skittles commercial “Midas Touch” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp0WBiME_fM. This commercial is so funny! I’ve seen it so many times that I’ve got it memorized! My favorite part is the part when Steve gets angry bangs his desk and it turns into skittles!
Our next category is best beverage commercial. That award goes to Evian’s “Roller Skating Babies” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YNmLopEoSw. This is one of the cutest ads I’ve ever seen! The music is super awesome too!
Our next category is best original song in a commercial. The award goes to AFLAC! I unfortunately forget the name of the commercial but I do know it’s super funny! The AFLAC Duck (and a bunch of other animals) do a rap! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMO95z7bjEo! It’s so cool! I didn’t know animals were such awesome rappers! I think Gilbert and the AFLAC duck (and all the other animals in the video) could have a career in rapping!
Our next category is best car commercial. The award goes to Corolla for their “Mambo #5” parody commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCHFHYe5rog. I love the song “Mambo #5” by Lou Begga http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bu7h_md33So. It’s such a catchy and upbeat song! I was so happy when Corolla decided to parody it! They did such a teriffic job!
Our next category is best store commercial. That award goes to IKEA for “Start The Car!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4xMugOrVoM. I didn’t quite get it at 1st but now that I do understand it I love it! It’s such a funny commercial!
Our final category is best detergent commercial. That award goes to Tide To Go for their “Talking Stain” ad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2cs8gnb42A. Interrupting is super rude but when a stain does it it’s super funny (as you can see in this ad)! Even though I have no clue what in the world the stain is saying I crack up laughing every time I see this commercial!
Congradulations to all the animals, people and companies that have won awards today!
