And you thought our winter was bad.

It's been a tough winter on the East Coast, even in the usually warm and sunny south.

But everything's relative, and after watching this commercial from Tropicana, you should feel a little better about where you are and what you've gone through.

Why directors have director's cuts...

They're not commercials. They're too long. No client would ever sign off on them because they don't "sell" enough.

But they sure are fun.

Favorite Olympic spot so far...

Not usually a fan of anything from Proctor and Gamble but this spot is nice. What could be too cutesy has a nice payoff that makes watching it worthwhile.

Bank of America living in fantasyland.

You'd think with all the financial troubles out there, a corporation like BOA (part of the problem) would keep a pretty low profile.

But apparently, they're pleased enough with themselves to take out a full page ad to pat themselves on the back. Their wonderful deed? They put together a high-dollar deal with Disney.

Wooo-hooo! Big bucks for big business. I believe I've seen this movie.

Hey BOA, if you really want to be a superhereo, how about lending some money to small businesses? And until then, we liked it better when we weren't hearing from you.

A most unusual TV commercial

that will make sense once you've finished watching it. Not sure how long this will be up, so share with friends quickly!

Snickers finds the magic formula.

Lots of folks talked about the Betty White spot during the Super Bowl, but this newest Snickers commercial is even better.

The premise of "you're not you when you're hungry" is brilliant. And what they've got here is a concept that can go on and on, while employing a host of "hungry," affordable B-list talent.

My favorite Super Bowl ad

wasn't on TV, but ran in Fridays' USA Today (as you can tell by the see-through print on this very thin paper).

A nice show of support for both the city and the team.

The edition of "The Office" you never saw.

Bud Light ads tend to be juvenile and sophomoric. So is this one, but it's funny. Even though you can see every gag coming, it's entertains throughout.

Not sure where this would run except the web at a minute and 20 seconds, but that's good enough for me.
