Good Commercial / Bad Commercial

Good commercial / Microsoft's "Gears of War" ad featuring Gary Jules' awesomely melancholic "Mad World". Deep sh*t, man... Deep... (Watch it!)

Bad commercial / The terrible and inescapable (unless you have a Tivo) LeBron James' Nike ads. Pretentious, pointless, and not funny. (Watch it!)

Well, I just clicked on the "Blossom now on DVD" Google Ad, if that makes you feel any better.

i've seen the gears ad. it's very effective because it's so opposite of what you'd expect for that kind of game. i'm not sure if the game itself has any of those kinds of emotive moments; it's a very gory shootfest. still, i bet it makes you wish you had a 360...

apparently, Germany has refused to give the game a rating because there isn't a rating severe enough!

Holy Crap -

Have you seen the real video for "Mad World?" Very, very cool:
