Link to video of an Acura commercial?

There's this Acura commercial about the collision safety of one of its new cars, and the advert is a series of shots of people in normal environs (office, outdoors, etc) being essentially blown backwards as if in a collision. It's hypnotic. I could watch it all day. I'm not sure what that says about me, but can anyone find this commercial on Youtube or some similar site?

Burly Guy Baby-Talking His Cat

I'm looking for a video of a commercial I saw a few years ago. I can't even remember what product it was pushing. But it features a big burly guy, laying on the floor on his back, baby talking to his kitty. Saying something like,"WHO's got the pretty little mustache? Who's the mustache man?... Is it YOU?! Is it YOU!?!" He's discovered in this compromising pose by his macho buddies. Any ideas??

Find me a Calvin Klein ad from the early days of ads that precede movies.

Some time in the early 90's, Calvin Klein ran a commercial before movies. I believe it was for underwear, and I remember it as one of the first ads that I saw (aside from trailers) before movies in Canada. It featured a bunch of heroin chic kids moping around the house, and I distinctly remember that one young lad was toying with a laser pointing and aiming it at the camera. Help me find this commercial on YouTube or another video sharing service.

S&L/Bank Commercials from 1970s ID

Can anyone help me ID a series of savings and loan commercials that aired during the 1970s? They featured a gaunt-looking fellow holding a chicken; the actor also appeared in Blazing Saddles as a naked guy covered in soap. I saw the spots growing up in Southern California so they may have been regional. I just can't remember the name of the S&L. Thanks in advance!

Commercial with the creepy old guy who said "Yah, yah, yah"?

What was the commercial around 10 years ago that had a creepy old guy talk about packing off his family someplace, with the vague insinuation that they might have come to a bad end? I think it was for computer printers or something, and he had taped pictures of the family up around the house and was reveling in being alone. The dialog went something like "Sent the grandkids off camping with their aunt Carrie. Yah, yah, yaaaaaaaah." The "Yah, yah, yaaaaaah" was said in sort of a satisfied sigh and was highly imitable.

Help me find an animated TV ad from this past summer.

Where can I find a (preferably downloadable) online copy of a recent TV commercial advertising a nuclear power company? I saw the ad all summer on CNN (United States) and I'm not sure if they're still running. The ad is a quirky animated piece showing the step-by-step process of nuclear energy, from mining to usage. It's presented in a 3D isometric perspective, similar to eboy/pixel art. I'd like to present it to a class I'm teaching, as the ad style liberally borrows from a Royksopp music video from a few years back. Thanks!
