Still chugging along - now over 35k.

We interrupt this regurlarly schedule advertising bickering to let y'all know that the commercial archive now has over thirtyfivethousand commercials in it. Count'em! Thirtyfive thousand adverts. Wooo!

You can watch your way through approx. twohundred and ninetyone (count'em, 291) hours worth of ads from 1958 to 2006 in various ways. For example, you might want to check the tagged commercials to find something, or you might want to surf the ads by country, or by year, or perhaps just strolling through the massive archives is your cup of tea. You can check them by topic or you could simply search for the ads you want. You might want to peek at what made it to the best and worst lists through the years in our adland roundup thanks to your ratings. Try the years 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1994, 1993, 1992, 1991 and 1990 for starters. :) Have fun.
