* Dale Peterson. He didn't win the election, but his [[UpToEleven wonderfully overstated]] {{Eagleland}}-themed BadAss [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU7fhIO7DG0 commercial]] will forever be a classic of political advertising.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udsWPmb3XO0 Budweiser "Tiny Dancer"]] commercial. Anything that gets a {{Badass}} like Peter Stormare singing an Elton John tune is made of win and awesome.

* Even if the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 isn't your favorite console, or you don't even play console games, the commercial [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj96XYhwTFI "Michael"]] will make you proud of all the things you've done as a gamer. Michael was a cancer patient who lost his battle, and the ad is also a memorial to him. Then you think of all the developers who agreed to have their characters show up in one commercial and it becomes somewhat of a TearJerker.
