Roto-Rooter Saves A Kitten From A Sewer Pipe

It hasn’t been a good week news-wise, so watching something like this should help a bit. I randomly saw it today as one of YouTube’s pre-roll ads, though it’s been around for more than a year and racked up 4.5 million views. I must have missed it somehow. Anyway, it’s an adorable video showing a kitten being rescued from a sewer pipe by a persistent Roto-Rooter crew. This happened on Long Island, New York. It’s similar to GoPro’s kitten video from a few years ago, but with a much happier ending. Enjoy!

Geico: Dora The Explorer Is At The South Pole!

You can always count on Geico to make funny spots, and here’s another one. It starts out with dramatic voiceover describing a brutal Antarctic expedition with shades of Shackleton. Of course when the crew thinks they’ve made history, they’re greeted by a cheerful Dora the Explorer. I laughed out loud.

Robinsons Has A Nice Ad Showing How Quickly Kids Grow Up

In 2013, UK drink company Robinsons released its “Pals” ad. It was beautiful, sweet, and had a great twist ending. I thought it was the best commercial of the year. Now Robinsons has a cute spot with a child who literally grows up before his parents eyes. Nicely done.

DirecTV Enlists Hannah Davis And A Talking Horse

DirecTV has apparently ended its Rob Lowe campaign amid criticisms that it contained false claims. It was a funny campaign, but getting kinda old. Now DirecTV is going in a different direction, with spots featuring 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model/ Derek Jeter’s main squeeze, Hannah Davis. And a talking horse. Hannah Davis is nice to look at, but these are stupid commercials.

Fruit Of The Loom Reminds Us That “No Diggity” Is A Fantastic Song

It’s amusing, though by no means a great or groundbreaking ad. But I can’t hate on any commercial that features “No Diggity”, one of the best songs of the ’90s. No diggity, no doubt.
