Best and Worst Food, Beverage, Restaurant -Related Ads in 2009 -- or EVER!

I just saw a TV ad for Baskin-Robbins cake and ice cream. It had plastic dinosaurs and robot and cheerleader figurines -- dancing to some hip-hop kind of music ("doing the Ice cream and Cake.). Pretty catchy and cute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy_Wqi...

Apparently, the cheerleaders had to win a contest to appear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Evh9N...

Here's the Halloween version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIwqQw...

I thought to myself, how far we've come from Carvel's Fudgy the Whale cake or Cookie Puss! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67J2Gt...

Then I saw a creative ad for Blue Moon ("Creation") that takes natural ingredients and uses them as they transform into paint colors on a brush. Neat idea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3tiGq...

Then there's the Miss Sexy Green M&M ad campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDoJNy...

What about the subtle eroticism of those squirty champagne ads?

And I'm liking the vibe of the Bacardi "party" ads -- the people look like they're having a fantastic time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0rx1s...

And the surrealism of the "overnight island" is intriguing -- I always watch the ad to see new things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5NqV4...

Then, on the other side (as in Just Plain Dumb) was the ad for the Burger King and Sponge-Bob butts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5X4TS...
"Sponge Bob Got Back!"

Here's a vintage loser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3v4nC...
