Kevin Nealon is hosting TBS one-hour special, Worlds Funniest Commercials, premiering Thursday (Aug. 30), and the comedian says he loves a funny ad, just as long as its not obnoxious.
Says Nealon: I love commercials that are clever, humorous, and make the consumer think. International commercials are great, because theyre extreme and bring the unexpected, but local radio commercials drive me crazy! Theyre loud, annoying, and oversell the product I cant stand them!
And while Nealon has seen his share of commercials, there are a few advertising themes hell 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. Theres one I like where a trout calls a guy on the phone and asks him why hes not out fishing with his buddies. Its ridiculous, but hilarious!
