I can't find video of it, but the best ad I ever saw was a British ad from the 80's:

Two fishermen in a small boat out at sea, rocking in the waves
Sun goes down
Sun comes up, they're still sitting there in the boat
Sun down
Sun up over and over, days pass, the two men in the boat
Sun down
Sun up --only one man in the boat.

Dignified British announcer voice-over: "Pepto Bismol: for when you've eaten something you shouldn't have"

does anyone remember the old K-Tel album commercials? i'd seen some of them so often that when i'd remember one of the songs the edited playlist from the commercial would go through my head instead of the whole song i started out with!

I can't remember any. All of them were bad, and my family and I would take a potty break when we heard "Here's a word from our sponsors." Bottom line, if we weren't already using/consuming the ad's offerings, we would be certain not to buy them.
