Today msn.com is featuring a segment The Today Show did on the best commercials of 2009 (not sure if it's Today or msn that's six months late, but whatever). I'm happy to report that the ad specialist (it's ok Today, I had a million things going on and simply don't have the time to act as a guest ad pro on your little ragtag show anyway) they had on advised Old Spice had the best commercial of 2009, with Snickers in the running as well. Both products were recently featured as Ad Bits commercials, although the Old Spice ad they show is not the Neil Patrick Harris one; the point is O.S. has good ads with handsome (if gay) men.
They also touch on a PETA commercial I've never seen but never ever would have put on my blog anyway because dirt and turkey poop will not stop me from eating my Thansgiving turkey, thank you very much.
The Today Show evidently does not want people embedding their clips (I bet that is Matt Lauer's doing- I've always thought he was a bit of a toolbox) so I just have to give you the link: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/37589628#37589628
