Adweek’s Top 10 Commercials of the Week


Valspar ‘Jon and Val’

Who better to promote paint—and a special offer to switch if you don't like a certain color—than a pair of chameleons? Say hello to Jon and Val, courtesy of Draftfcb.


Microsoft ‘Get Up to Date’

Amazon tackled the issue of gay marriage in last week's top 10 with its "Husbands" spot. Now, it's Microsoft's turn. This spot from Deutsch features imagery from a lesbian wedding. The times they are a-changing.


Orangina ‘Statistics’

Orangina's animals are back in this latest campaign from Fred & Farid, poking some fun at advertising's obsession with statistics.


Milano Cookies ‘The Highlight of My Night’

Are you a chocoholic? The wife certainly is in this Pepperidge Farm spot by Y&R in New York. And the husband is happy to enable her.


Carl’s Jr. ‘Mrs. Robinson’

Are you trying to seduce me, Ms. Klum? The Project Runway host does her best Anne Bancroft in this spoof of The Graduate by 72andSunny for Carl's Jr.


Mountain Dew ‘Felicia The Goat’

It's the Year of the Goat in advertising. After the crazy Doritos spot from the Super Bowl, we get this even crazier Mountain Dew ad from Tyler, The Creator. Serve this surly monster caffeine at your own risk.


Ontario Ministry of Health ‘Social Farter’

Being a social smoker is as ridiculous as being a social farter, said this amusingly flatulent PSA from BBDO Toronto.


Tide and Downy ‘The Princess Dress’

Who said dads must be dumb? This Tide and Downy spot by Saatchi New York refreshingly shows a father who actually knows how to parent his young daughter.


Muenchens Furniture ‘We’ll Take It All’

So bad it's good, this local furniture spot from Cincinnati features the great Pete Rose and his fiancée, Playboy model Kiana Kim. It won't win any awards, but it's fun to watch.


Anti-Defamation League ‘Imagine a World Without Hate’

Imagine if MLK, Anne Frank and others hadn't been cut down by hate, but were still alive today—and doing good works. Publicis Kaplan Thaler did just that in this lovely tribute to ADL's 100th anniversary.
