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?

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?

Please help me kill this ear worm!

I just caught the end of a Ford commercial and am being driven insane by not being able to figure out what the song is and who sings it (I know it, just can't put my finger on it). Can anyone help? It's a male voice, he's singing "nah nah nah nah nah nah nah" Sounds a little indie rock on the folksy side. Please help me otherwise I'll obsess about it all night long.

Funny Commercial

What is the company that makes the commercial where bikers enter a cafe and approach a table with a dad, his wife and daughter. The dad has just finished telling his girl something, to which, she has rolled her eyes. Then the bikers stop at the dad and the wife and daughter looked panicked. But they show the dad respect and he fist punches them back while recognizing and acknowledging them. The wife practically faints but the daughter suddenly has new-found respect for her seemingly geeky dad. And, is that commercial available for viewing online anywhere?

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?
