Not necessarily the most popular. Not necessarily the critics' picks. This is a list of some of our favorite 2007 commercials.
A giant robot dashing through a city? Sounds like any number of movies (e.g. Transformers) and even some other commercials. Running is a nice stress reliever, so this Propel spot does an accurate job of representing that feeling. And throw in some Queen/Bowie and you've got a good all around ad.
Corny or awesome? It's a tough call. Either way, it's a cute commercial. Sometimes it takes a mix of woodland critters pouring in to get the sing-a-long pouring out. Just watch out for that wolf.
Long have Old Navy commercials been peculiar and quirky, so it's a nice change of pace to have a sensual, serious spot. And the song is sweet.
It's tough to go wrong with sexy women fawning over a crooning Bruce Campbell, and this ad doesn't disappoint. Ahoy!
6. Axe - Dinner
Speaking of sexy, this Axe spot (or Lynx if you prefer) is full of it. Dad doesn't know what he's getting himself into. Bom Chicka Wah Wah.
This spot is a lot of fun, if you get past the fact that kids are singing "Nothing But a Good Time." (Valiant job but not age appropriate). But who wouldn't want a hot air balloon to deliver some video game action.
Finally someone cleaning up their act on television. Thank you Orbit for giving catch-phrase fodder to adolescents everywhere.
Runners can relate to what Edward Norton is narrating to us, and the haunting music and visuals hammer it home. What they're selling is more than just the Nike+ technology. They're selling a runner's mantra - I'm addicted.
Silly, without being too silly. Okay, it's utterly ridiculous, but we love it anyway.
