Commercially Acclaimed: Vol.#15 - Planters Peanuts

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.

This week we got Robert Downey Jr. lending his voice to the legendary character of Mr. Peanut of Planters Peanuts fame. This commercial shows Mr. Peanuts annual Christmas party, and he reluctantly allows an unexpected and potentially deadly (for him anyway) visitor into the party. Hilarity ensues.... enjoy the clip!!!


  1. Wow...I had no idea that was RDJ doing his voice. I like this commercial even MORE now! Good catch.
