Funny in a strange way. Having Charlie Jones, who just passed away, on a network who is his competition is funny. If I was in his predicament, I would have found it funny.

This commercial is ok. I understand why people think it's great but I've seen better. How did a kid get past security? Why didn't anybody stop him?

This is still a funny commercial. They should bring the Bud Bowl spots back. There are so many commercials that are not funny and stupid that air during the Super Bowl.

I didn't know Arby's was around back in the 80s. This is a national spot as it played during the Super Bowl but I don't think the Arby's chain was a national chain. I thought, back then anyway, that it was very regional.

This is the famous spot with "Mean" Joe Greene and Coke. It's a great spot and one of the best Super Bowl ads. One thing I would like to know. How did that kid make it to the locker room. Don't you think security would have stopped him?

It did, I'm sorry. I stand corrected.

This was actually a spoof. Chevy Chase had a talkshow in Sept. 1993 and it totally bombed. When the executive is talking about how "he's not getting the ratings", that's how his talkshow got cancelled.  I also liked the last line by Chase when the old lady took the bag of chips, "tough year,good chip". This was a great spot.

That is Candice Michelle who plays the GoDaddy.com girl. She is now a WWE wrestler.

I liked the commercial up until the vomit part. That was pretty disgusting. How can that not turn you off?

I guess you could make the argument that anything that Apple would have done wouldn't have come close to the success of the 1984 spot. The bar was set that high.
