Ebay commercials directed by Sam Mendes!

I know we all know and love the Broadway EBay commercials, but did you know Sam Mendes directed them? I say good for him! Getting that Broadway theme out across the world! I was talking with another poster on aim and she sent me the video of the one with Christian Borle which i hadn't seen and so I did a bit of online research to see who the genius was to use the broadway theme. Hahah I am bored and it is 3:15 here, it doesn't take much to get me excited! http://pages.ebay.com/tvspots/index.htmlhttp://pages.ebay.com/tvspots/index.html>http://pages.ebay.com/tvspots/index.html (Amore, Do you, & On Broadway Spoofs) http://www.goodbysilverstein.com/03/tv_qt_08.htmlhttp://www.goodbysilverstein.com/03/tv_qt_08.html>http://www.goodbysilverstein.com/03/tv_qt_08.html (My Way)

I'm not sure who did "Do you know the way to use Ebay?"
Christian Borle did the spoof of "Amore"
The guy who did the spoof of "On Broadway" is another one I can't find.
I also heard there was one with a woman singing between cars on the road, I'm not sure if I remember it or not but it isn't on the pages I found. Any one who could help me out with the info i am looking for would be appreciated!

Son...
Your distorted thumb scares me.
It's too much like "the ring".

HAHA! It reminds me of when in Ghostbusters II when Igor (Is that his name?) is trying to come out of the painting and his face gets all distorted and weird looking, or maybe it happened when they were putting him back in the painting. I can't remember.

That commercial with Christian Borle is so much funnier now that I know it's him.

Does anyone else think his mouth is made out of rubber?
