We enjoyed the other Chevy commercial (Armageddon where only Chevy trucks and Twinkies survive).

And in a very interesting twist, the Dannon greek yogurt commercial music was written by a college classmate of DD (Lewis & Clark '11). It was directed by a current L&C student who has taken a leave of absence from pursuing a computer science degree to work as a director.

We liked the ad for The Voice that had Betty White in a bathrobe telling Cee Lo Green "my eyes are up here". Hilarious.

A cameo appearance by Keith Richards would have truly made this one complete.

According to what I've read, sadly, the cat-killing dog was the breakout favorite among the general populace.

I liked the "Battleship" movie trailer. Quite impressive.
