It's a Sony Nudeman. Tomandandy's music is so engrossing on a Sony Discman that a guy on the subway doesn't notice his pocket is being picked. Nor does he feel his necklace being ripped off, or his shirt, pants and boxers. But when the nimble thief goes for the headphones, the kid comes alive and beats the crap out of him. Now that his tunes are safe, though, he still doesn't know he's nude.

A brekfast with impact. As an Armageddon-type comet hurtles toward our planet, a couple ponders how to spend their last 18 minutes on Earth. "I've always wanted to try a Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwich," the husband says. So off they go. Brilliant casting and great direction make this spot a winner.

The voice of a new generation. Little Hallie Eisenberg, who made heads turn when the voice of Joe Pesci came out of her mouth in an earlier spot, appears thrice-possessed in Pepsi's new "Joy of Cola" campaign. In the best of the three lip-syncers, she gets a Coke in a pizza parlor after specifically asking for a Pepsi. She takes a sip, the violin music comes up, and from out of her mouth is the voice of Don Corleone. The entire place is paralyzed by fear, when a busboy pops his bubble gum. Then everyone hits the floor.
