Commercially Acclaimed: Vol #6 - Yahoo Search Engine Edition

TV commercials are a part of our everyday lives as TV viewers. Even though Tivo and DVR have allowed us to "skip through" the commercials, the advertising companies a still trying to peak our interests by coming up with creative commercials. To me, great commercials are an art form and are under appreciated by a society that is always trying to speed through things. Think about it... how many times did you see a great commercial that made you laugh hysterically or want to go out and purchase the advertised product??? And how many times has the best part of the Super Bowl been the commercials during a blow out game??? Whether you want to admit it or not, commercials are cool as shit... and here are some of my favorites.

These next two commercials are part of Yahoo's new TV campaign for the search engine. They take great songs, in this case Kayne West's "Flashing Lights" and Lionel Richie's "Hello", and mash them up with real life people in real life situations. The music provides them with a fantasy escape... through the search engine. I know, its a bit of a stretch... but the guys lip syncing and dancing all goofy and shit is pretty hysterical.... here you go. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.
Kayne West - Flashing Lights

Lionel Richie - Hello
