Honk if you laugh!

Today for your consideration: a couple of funny car commercials!

A heavily edited version of this Fiat ad is currently playing on Canadian TV, but the original American ad is much better --



I always think of this Thai ad as "Father Knows Best."



Have a good weekend, everyone, and drive safely!

I laughed so hard at that Bridgestone commercial. Almost peed on myself.

I love the crab dropping from the car at the end of the first one. Poor critter...

And that second commercial just kills me! No matter how often I watched it, it always makes me laugh out loud.

That's funny because most American ads, as you know, really suck.

I would love one of those cars.
I did laugh at both videos. I don't watch much TV so this was new to me.

That Bridgestone commercial is hilarious. And now, since I can't afford a trip to Italy, I'm going to start saving for a Fiat.

Be well, Debra. Thanks for your support.

Flames on the side, huge spoiler, huge exhaust on something like a Toyota Yaris. Yep, that's definitely Thailand.

Also, I'm sad to say that of my Italian dream cars... a $15,000 Fiat is not on that list. :)
