Quality ad video downloads

Where can I download good-quality clips of (your current favorite) TV ads? Bonus points for visually-interesting spots without voiceover or dialogue.

I've realized that my job stinks and, in addition to a number of other brands I've got in the fire, I'd like to try my hand at scoring TV, film, and ads. I understand that it's helpful to have a demo reel, but the only credit I've got so far is a short, unimpressive snippet in a (BAFTA-winning!) short animation.
I'd like to re-score neat ads (or other videos) both to develop such a portfolio and to work on my scoring chops. Any suggestions of specific ads or, generally, places to download better-than-YouTube-quality video are appreciated (it's got to be save-able; I'd appreciate not having to jump through hoops to save .FLV, too).
Feel free to tell me that this isn't a good way to build a demo reel (I've read a few articles that claim it's acceptable) or that freelancing in this industry is not a good idea, too; the back story wouldn't be there otherwise.
