Here's one that is going viral. New company called Dollar Shave Club.
Maybe NSFW due to a bit o' language. But still quite funny

This is pretty self explanatory, watch carefully what they do - but for our non German speaking friends - the dialog is as follows:

She: Say, Dad, how are you getting along with the I-pad we gave you?

He: Oh, just fine.

She: you mean you are ok with all the apps, etc.

He: yes, yes, just fine.

T-Al, I remember those hilarious prank responses that Tom Mabe did to whatever telemarketers called him. There was a radio station here that would play them, years ago. I especially liked the one where the carpet cleaning caller was asked how to get a lot, I mean a lot, of blood out of the carpet. Great stuff!

Q: How do you get young adults to stop texting while driving?

A: Make it part of their driving test!

You don't need your speakers for this video, unless you want to practice your aural comprehension of the French language. It has subtitles (and text balloons!).
The impossible texting and driving test. [VIDEO]

The Internet Archive has a series of real TV commercials for Jack Poet Volkswagen made in 1969 by the Firesign Theater. Pretty funny stuff, I wonder how many cars they sold? Just seeing the old Bugs and hippy vans is fun.

Not sure if I am pasting this in correctly. If you like funny cat videos, make sure you watch Henri the Existential Cat.
