    What are some of the commercials that stand out to you? My marketing instructor likes to be sent interesting commercials (Youtube links) and she will often share some in class.

    So what kind of commercials stand out as interesting, creative, brilliant, plainly bizarre, etc?

    Here is one that she shared with us today in class:

    I don't have much to draw from because I rarely watch television, but I thought this was clever.

    People interested in the aesthetic elements of ads should look up Adweek. They have really good commentary on ads.

    I didn't look at the video, since I already have enough ad music that won't get out of my head. But if it's about root beer, I have to say that Barq's is CRAP. It's even worse than Fanta, and I don't like Fanta.

    But then the only good root beer was original A & W, not the stuff they have now that pretends to be A & W root beer.

    Bah, A&W root beer is too sweet and syrupy. I'll take a nice, spicy Barq's root beer over any other soft drink.

    Watched it once yesterday, and I just can't get past two seconds of it now.
