A list of what I think are some of the funniest ads ever. I know I’ve had some of them on the blog before, but they’re all worth a second mention. If you have favorites that I missed, write a comment.

#10 Panda Cheese ?
It’s one of my absolute favorites, but I get that not everyone enjoy it as much as I do. It’s weird.


#9 Direct TV
This series of ads are very funny. The one with Charlie Sheen is probably the most popular one, but this is my favorite.


#8 – Budweiser – Whasssup
Classic superbowl ad from Budweiser, the phrase “whasssup” became a phenomenon in itself.


#7 Dollarshaveclub.com
An ad made on minimal budget, with perfect comical timing. So of course it went viral.


#6 Old Spice – The Man Your Man Could Smell Like
A modern classic, the pieces just come together in this one: the monologue, the one-take filming and the tone. It’s a smash hit and still makes me grin, the 100th or so time I’m watching it.


#5 Hamlet – Photo Booth
It’s a cigarette ad I know, but it is funny and it would work for other happiness boosters like Coca-Cola or Snickers. Which are probably almost as unhealthy as cigarettes.


#4 Bud Light – Swear Jar
Swear words and obscenities are funny in the right context. This amazing Bud Light ad shows how.


#3 – The German Coastguard
There are a lot of funny ads for language courses, but this is my all time favorite. It’s simple, with a twist and funny without obscenities.


#2 – Reebok – Terry Tate office linebacker
A friend showed me this a few years ago, I remember almost peeing my pants. And since I’m a big fan of Office Space the TPS-report reference gets me every time.


#1 – John West Salmon
I can’t remember when I saw this the first time, but I know it was a long time ago. My friend and I watched it over and over and over. It never got old, and I still laugh every time I see it.

Close but no cigars:
Most ads from Skittles, Kayak Brain Surgeon, Zazoo Condoms Screaming Kid, K-Swiss Kenny Powers, Asics Faster Than a Lion,
