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]

When did rock (or at least faux rock with rock instrumentation) become the mainstream music in television themes and commercials? [more inside]

I need a reasonable quality video stream captured from recent US network television, with the commercials still in it. Oh, and no subtitles. And, actually, maybe more than one, if that's possible. The usual pirates, you see, conveniently strip the commercials. [more inside]

I recently saw a MasterCard commercial set in a gas station/convenicence store. In it, the cashier (in the trademark "Priceless" voice) rings up their items, etc. Is that really the guy behind the voice, or some clever dubbing? If so, good for that guy, leveraging voice talent into an on-screen role and all. [more inside]

The Geico Caveman TV commercial.
Is it racist or just brilliant?

Anyone else a fan of the TV adverts for Cartoon Network (by, I guess, Williams Street
of Sealab 2021 and ATHF fame)? The new CG commercials are fun, and the old classics featured things like Shaggy doing a variation on the Whopper/Royale conversation from Pulp Fiction, and Johnny Bravo sitting around in Hopper's Nighthawks coffeeshop (having had his heart broken by Scooby Doo's Velma.) Hip stuff with obvious references aimed at adults. Can the adverts be found anywhere? Anyone want to sharez a link with me via e-mail? Thanks.
