TV Commercial Power Hour

Posted on 04 February 2009

 

The world would be a very grim place without commercials. How would we know what to buy? Where would we hear new jingles to whistle as we walk to work? Would we have any reason for watching the Superbowl? Face it: commercials are awesome.

And that’s why I decided to make a power hour made up of entirely TV commercials! This contains all kinds of commercials, including famous commercials, hilarious retro ads, foreign ads, and a TON of local commercials that are laughably terrible.

RULES: Drink a shot of beer every time the text comes up on screen! By the end of the hour, you will drink six beers…and want to go out and buy stuff.
