Two Questions

Question 1:
I found this Snap previews thingummy dooda over at writermom's blog where it looked very cool indeed, so I snaffled it. Thing is, I'm a mouse wobbler with a fidgety cursor, so for me it means these damn preview squares keep popping up and getting in the way because I'm always scrolling past the links. You too? I guess I mean *ahem* - question - do you like it, or does it get right on your wick?

Question 2:
I have watched the following video "Funny Commercials II" four times in a row because I can't stop chuckling. There are two adverts in here that I fondly remember and one that I have never seen before, but totally adore. Which do you reckon those three are, and why?

(Bonus question - which do you like the best?)

I reckon the two oldies are the John West and the Levis ones. The one you haven't seen before is the one with the oldies partying like Californian teens!

I'm right aren't I? Go on, I am, aren't I?

Oh, my fave is the John West one, by the way.

So close!

John West - that's Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly, Bob The Builder) tackling the karate-kicking bear, hehe.

Funny commercials :-)

The snap thing sort of drives me nuts, but I have no idea what it's supposed to do, so don't pay any attention to my griping.

No I thought the last one was too obtuse, too.

I love the Salmon and bear one, I remember it from a few years back, maybe eight...it always cracks me up. I like the Levis one too. Heh, heh.

I'm thinking those are the two you have seen and like, and maybe the first one is a new one to you that you like.

The snap thing on Ange's blog, I kind of like it, but it took me forever to realize that if I held my cursor over it and WAITED, then it would show me a preview...it was the waiting that I had problems with. Of course I have dial up.

The preview thingy is fun, but at the same time ... is it really useful, or just a gimmick?

I'm undecided. Put me down in the 'wishy-washy' column.

Any ad showing a senior board member with a pencil stuck up his butt gets my vote of approval. Did like the sassy baby with his fizzy drink too - but that probably has a lot to do with not relating to child birth in any way.

I like the John West one best but the Levi one cracks me up and the Snap thing gets up my nose ... just a tad

I would have had to go for John West there too :-)
