    I especially like the "Wind Energy" commercial featuring a very hunky discus thrower :drool: 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.
