Esurance - Beatrice and Larry

Love these ads, especially Beatrice!
"That's not how it works!"

"Meet Beatrice, offline over-sharer. Instead of mailing her vacation photos, she posts them to her 'wall.' 
It's so quick — just like her car insurance. But little does she know that 15 minutes for a quote isn't how it works anymore."

"Meet Larry, HD holdout. He saves time by not rewinding DVDs — which is crazy. Kinda like taking 15 minutes for a quote. With Esurance, 7½ minutes could save you on car insurance."

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas "The Wild Card" commercial

This ad (the music) probably drives a lot of people nuts, but I love it!

(From YouTube description):
The energetic track used in the commercial is a mashup called "Original Don," created by Major Lazer. It is reflective of The Cosmopolitan brand to have music play a leading role, as it does in this commercial.

Chevrolet Cruze Diesel - "The New Efficient" commercial

"The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel gets the best gas mileage of a non-hybrid, so no one at the gas station will know your name."
