Back when I found the Just Like a Mini-Mall and Wet Pets ads, I got really excited about finding bad ads on YouTube and planned to dig up many more. Sadly, I'm lazy. But the folks over at The Phat Phree have collected what they consider to be The 50 Greatest Local TV Commercials. I think it might skew a little too heavily to the Midwest region -- after all, you haven't seen anything till you've seen a 60-year-old Cajun man with Dumbo-sized ears hawking Toyota's at "Happy Town U.S.A." -- but who am I to quibble. The list is entertaining.
