    I avoid commercials, but I remember the panther in a Christmas season commercial (diamonds?, perfume?). I liked this commercial a lot.

    Found it: L'Odyssée de Cartier

    I am not a coffee drinker, but this set of commercials caught my attention The couple met when she knocked on his door to borrow some coffee. He introduced her to Taster's Choice. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

    As their relationship progressed, the audience learned that the suave and single gentleman's name was Michael, and that the woman was a divorcee with a grown son (her name was never disclosed). Sharon Maughan played the woman; Anthony Stewart Head, who would later become "Buffy the VampireSlayer's" "watcher," was Michael.

    The 13th episode left romantics hanging. Her ex-husband had made a surprise visit and was still in her apartment when Michael arrived to pick her up for a date. Michael was clearly disturbed. The spot concluded the next day with her former spouse calling to apologize for creating the awkward scene.

    "I'm sorry about last night," he began. She interrupted with a tantalizing, "I'm not." Fade to black.

    The bug killer of choice in the USA is Raid guaranteed to kill anything that flys or crawls.

    Our Mr. Sheen is called Pledge. Only problem is, it sets up a static charge which attracks the dust particles in the air. A day or two later furniture is covered in dust again. Great way to keep on making $.

    We have Raid in Australia, but our dominant insect killer is Mortein.

    I've heard of Pledge - and I think most furniture polishes do the same thing with dust...

    Otherwise you'd only have to buy it once every couple of years.

    The commercials for this new vehicle have been entertaining. The car plays an important role in helping a female fairytale character. Different women portraying Cinderella & Rapunzel, so far. Maybe they have more coming. The vehicle itself is quite sexy...2018 / Toyota / C-HR
