Awarding the best commercials

Most commercials are boring. And granted, there's only so much you can do with a new and improved washing powder or mortgages with lower interest percentages. But some commercials are funny enough to make the increasing amount of commercial breaks seem bearable. The greatest and funniest commercials are honored each year by the Clio awards. And although not agreeing with all the choices (that Nike ad is plain annoying) there are some real gems in there.

The biggest winner this year was Honda with their "Dreams" campaign, consisting of the commercials "Impossible Dream" (accompanied by the Andy Williams song) and "Choir".

Other winners included Guinness "Noitulove", Adidas "Hello Tommorrow" (directed by Spike Jonze, who also directed the Gap commercial blogged about here) and Sony's "Balls"
