Cold weather RIGHT there! (Older weather channel commercial)

I'm looking for an old commercial for the weather channel that has two guys sitting in a living room watching the weather channel forecast with their faces painted like warm & cold fronts. It was like football fans cheering on teams except it was weather. Help?

"Futuristic" 1990s instant soup ad from Latin America

I'm trying to track down a television ad for instant soup that aired in Latin America in the 1990s. A young woman arrives home, prepares the advertiser's instant soup, and sits down to eat in front of a computer. On the screen, a man is waiting to welcome her to dinner, which was science fiction when the commercial aired. [more inside]

Old TV ad with a boy who'd been camping

What was that old (80s/90s) British TV ad with the boy who comes home from a camping trip and says "Pretty exhausting, really"? I'd like to find it on YouTube if possible, but even knowing the name of the product would help.

TV Commerical Search: People Yell "LAYUP"

Trying to find a commercial from the mid 90s (?). There's a guy talking about a basketball legend. The way he describes this legend goes something like this: "One day he was raining 3s from the sky" "He would pull up from 25 feet and people on the sidelines would be yelling LAYUP" My Google Fu has failed me, since I don't know what product was being advertised. Ideally, I'm looking for a video link, but would settle with knowing what was being advertised.

What commercial was this?

this is driving me crazy. at least ten years ago, i remember a commercial for jeans. levis, lee, wrangler, i looked for them all on youtube, to no avail. it's about some white dude, t-shirt, jeans, picking up some african-american woman for a date at her family's home. it makes a big deal about how he's white and he's definitely seen by the neighboring dudes as an interloper. can anyone remember this and/or provide a link? thanks.

Who is the screaming woman in the Samsung Infuse 4G commercial?

Who is the screaming woman in the Samsung Infuse 4G commercial? The commercial features two men and a woman. The red-headed woman mistakes the image of a spider on the phone for the real thing and completely, utterly, totally freaks out. Her blood-curdling screams are fantastic. She looks a lot like Karen Gillan, but I really doubt Ms. Gillan has time to duck out on the doctor to shoot commercials.

Anyone see an impressive camera commercial?

Saw a commercial this morning about 7AM EST - I think it was on the Today show - it was apparently a camera fixed on a guy's face who was skydiving. I saw in on my HD TV - it was a beautiful, crystal clear, professional looking shot. The guy pulled his parachute, and then they showed this camera, and the tag-line was "Be a professional" or something. What was the name of the camera? Did anyone catch this?

Looking for an old car commercial

Does anyone remember a certain 1990's Infiniti car commercial? I'm thinking of the sophisticated guy with longish gray hair, quiet classical music, darkness, etc. I'd like to find a youtube link and use it (or something similar at least) as an example of the sophisticated tone of luxury car commercials.

Can't remember this cereal from the 1980s.

Does anyone remember this cereal from the 1980s? The commercial was for a hot cereal so gross-looking that the kids had to wear paper bags on their heads, but they said it was really great-tasting and chocolatey. Is this just my own imagination at work, or did it actually exist?

Members of the Tribe

How many commercial products can you think of that are named after Native American groups or other indigenous peoples?

The best I can do are: Jeep Cherokee, Pontiac cars, and, um...Eskimo pies. But there must be more, right? Note: I'm NOT looking for products which use Native American or indigenous peoples' imagery in their marketing (like American Spirit cigarettes), or sports franchises. How many can you come up with?

French Music ID Filter

About 5 years ago there was a TV commercial (I think for BUPA) in the UK featuring a French song which I guess was from the sixties. The only lyric I can remember is (I think) "Quand votre coeur fait boom..." commercialbreaksandbeats.com is the usual place for answers on this - but they seem to be in the dead pool. Anyone have any ideas what I might be talking about?

Trying to find a Yahoo commercial ...

There is a Yahoo! commercial currently airing in which we see a woman going through her closet to the tune of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight"; we then notice that the lyric "wondering what clothes to wear" is repeating. The wife comes in, where the husband is causing the lyric to repeat on his laptop. "Honey?" "Yeah?" "Knock it off." "Yeah." I crack up every time I see this commercial -- can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of this, preferably not streaming or Windows Media?
