Your Favorite Summer Olympic TV Commercials

I especially like the "Wind Energy" commercial featuring a very hunky discus thrower in Ancient Greece who ended up accidentally destroying the Parthenon. That was funny ...

Second is the Visa commercial, narrated by Morgan Freeman, about the athletes and their "human" qualities. VISA, official sponsor of the 2008 Olympic Games [in Beijing], and the only card accepted there ...

The first one you mention is one of the few that drives me to change the station for a minute. Different strokes, I guess.

I like the Coke ad with USA and China basketball players finding common ground.

Then there's the one where the villagers are feeding the dragon, which in turn uses its fiery breath to heat water for their hot tub!
