Does it make you uncomfortable when I use the word DONGLE?

THE BEST funny commercial | DESIGN THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE | Lynne Knowlton

I don’t know about you, but when a television commercial airs on the tube …. I usually dart outta the room so fast, it makes the roadrunner look like a slow poke.

There are exceptions to every rule.

Like the day that I write on the blog about a television commercial.

I couldn’t resist.

Who knew that a commercial could be so hilare ??!!

Here are two words to describe this BEST BUY commercial with Amy Poehler :


Amy Poehler crushed it.   Killed it.   Laugh out loud.  Funny.

Congrats to Best Buy for making a commercial that people would actually watch


Here is the link to it on YouTube : Best Buy Commercial

If every commercial was that funny, would you watch it?

I know what I’m going to to on my next trip to Best Buy.

Laugh inappropriately in the electronics department.

Does it make you uncomfortable when I use the word dongle ?


Roll on floor.

Bust a gut.

Laugh out Loud.

Do you deliver? No, I mean… do you deliver?! ahhh mmm.

Which one is the most vibrate-y-est ?

Still laughing……

What’s your favourite commercial ?

Do tell.  Do tell.

Share the link to the YouTube version of the commercial in the comment section.

This could be dangerously fun.

    Have you seen the commercial where the guy is sick in bed and says, “Pam, can you call my mom?” It might be for something like Tylenol cold. My daughter and I just crack up every time it’s on. My husband doesn’t. LOL.

    I love this commercial, too! She is unbelievably funny, and to put her in this commercial was genius. Sometimes it’s worth it to wait for the commercials. I give them at least 10 seconds, except the ones I already know aren’t worth my time of day.

    February 20th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Good point Debi
    Wait 10 seconds before you run out of the room. LOL.
    Except this commercial. Couldn’t you just watch it over and over again, and still laugh ?! LOVE !
