    So... are these commercials that have aired since August? I only recognize the last one and chapstick head thing. And the unicorn one is similar to others I have seen.

    commercial #5: most of our planes end up underwater.
    #4:buy this stuff, and read the directions and find out it does nothing...
    #3:tehy said the magical amount several times. so, they put a frikin unikorn in it, because its stereotypicaly magical.
    #2:quite obvious i believe, a musician tries a new form of entertainment. whoop-dee-doo.
    #1:obvious.

    Of the Japanese commercials I`ve been watching, they`re pretty normal. Just maybe more happy and singing... and cutesy... but nothing too "out there".

    if they want people to stop smoking, they should show someone who is 50, and has smokers wrinkles and a croaking voice saying "smoking is cool". that would make people quit.

    Every non-smoking commercial made in the format of the one they showed on this site just has me shaking my head and saying "wtf?"

    And the Whopper Commercials leave me speechless. Not in a good way.

    I get the point of the Head On commercial: to get the viewer so annoyed they get a headache, and therefore are inclined to buy the product.

    Maybe it was just me, but was the BK commercial just laden with innuendos and double entendres?

    Every automobile commercial nowadays here in the US falls into this catagory. They`re dumb as hell, annoying as hell, and just don`t make any sense what so ever.

    and ZIMAAgent7 is right, having gone to Tokyo several months back when I had free flights (from working with United before their recent layoffs in May/June) i got a chance to watch Japanese television.

    Some weird crap...

    Seriously.
    @That zune ad that was posted, how did I miss that link?! Aw, geez. As if I wasn`t already permanently scarred for life.

    Me too, I can go all day without a cigarette, but as soon as an anti-smoking ad comes on TV, I pick one up and got out and have a smoke because my brain has been reminded that it hasn`t had one. I call FAIL on the whole idea.

    I’m sure some tobacco exec said in a memo, “Nicotine makes you sick in large amounts, so we need to find the magical amount to give the consumer the most nicotene without making them ill from our product.”

    I’m not a smoker, but these truth commercials are as bad as cigarette commercials. Oh wait there AREN’T any cigarette commercials because they were banned by the federal government. I say ban these too and let people choose for themselves.

    If you don’t have any idea that smoking kills you eventually (depending on your genes) then you should die from lung cancer for being an idiot.

    Number 3 does make sens; they`re talking about `the magical` amount, the amount in the cigarettes that won`t kill as fast but still get you hooked.
    They related magical amounts to magical creatures.
