    I love the Caveman thing where he's "beating Billie Jean King".

    The Williams sisters/Manning brothers thing is kinda weird.

    I like the Double Stuff racing league commercial.

    Remeber the original where it was just payton vs eli. they are talkin smack to each other then take one of the wafers off an oreo double stuff and just start lickin the thing. Very funny commercial. I hope they show another commercial of the Williams Sister vs the Manning brothers

    On the other note: I DO love that American Express commercial with Martin Scorcecy and Tina Faye where tina thinks she is getting a big role from Marty. and they had to go to the Airport Lounge. I wonder if she would ever really get a big role from Martin ?

    I'm kind of annoyed that she's supposed to be competing in a stadium match against the caveman and she's not even in tennis attire. Just some warm-up outfit. But the caveman's wood racquet was a nice touch.

    Did any1 see the old one that they showed during the Wawrinka/Murray match where there were 2 John Mcenroes talking about agents? That one beats all the new ones.

    The ING Bank commercial is very disturbing to me. This is the one where they show lots of different people going about their business, carrying a 3-D string of block numbers that represents their retirement savings. Everbody's got a seven-figure number! Man, I'm going to have to keep working till I drop if that's what it takes to retire.

    I know, I was wondering about that, too. I mean, do you really need 2+ million dollars to retire?

    Anyway, my favorite commercials are the AT&T ones where people complain about not having a signal. The best one is when a family is going to Spain, and they never get the call that some beaches are more "naked" than others. The boy is funny, he's like "Awesome!" before his mother covers his eyes. ROTFL.:lol:
