Skittles - "Cloud" commercial


These ads totally crack me up!

Be good to a #SkittlesCloud, and that #SkittlesCloud will be good to you.
(Short version here.)

When a #SkittlesCloud feels under the weather, it's time to pay a visit to the vet.

When a #SkittlesCloud gets a little too fluffy, it's time for a trip to the groomer.

Audi - "Dues" with Ricky Gervais and Kristen Schaal


Love these cameos!

"There are no shortcuts to greatness. The Audi A3 celebrates fearless individuals who have refused to compromise, whether they are athletes, entertainers, or Audi engineers."


"Ricky Gervais experiences Audi connect® with hotspot for up to eight devices.
The all-new Audi A3 is the only car in its class with super fast 4G LTE connectivity."


"Comedian and actress Kristen Schaal says, "You realize that there's nothing else that you want to do," even when learning from a few mistakes along the way. When the world gets her down, she keeps going."
