Kevin Nealon Loves Commercials – Sometimes

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Saturday Night Live alum Kevin Nealon loves commercials – well, most of the time.

Kevin Nealon is hosting TBS’ one-hour special, World’s Funniest Commercials, premiering Thursday (Aug. 30), and the comedian says he loves a funny ad, just as long as it’s not “obnoxious.”

Says Nealon: “I love commercials that are clever, humorous, and make the consumer think. International commercials are great, because they’re extreme and bring the unexpected, but local radio commercials drive me crazy! They’re loud, annoying, and oversell the product – I can’t stand them!”

And while Nealon has seen his share of commercials, there are a few advertising themes he’ll never get tired of – sex, Super Bowl ads, and talking animals.

He explains, “Sex always sells, and I love Super Bowl commercials, but I also enjoy commercials with talking animals. There’s one I like where a trout calls a guy on the phone and asks him why he’s not out fishing with his buddies. It’s ridiculous, but hilarious!”
