What are some TV commercials of the past couple of years that showcase some of the cheesy tropes of American television advertising?

I'm not looking for witty, award-winning Superbowl ads but rather the formulaic, middle-of-the-road, ubiquitous ones.
For example, Pantene Pro-V commercials with lustrous chestnut hair being penetrated by 3D molecules; or Olive Garden commercials with white suburban families laughing as forks plunge into steaming plates of alfredo pasta.
(I'm not in the US, hence why I'm asking).
