I love the Ebay commercials. I especially enjoyed the one with the woman dancing and singing on the back of a truck.

If the Marshall's commercial is the one with taht annoying woman doing her shopping list to The Tweleve Days Of Christmas...I detest that one.

What disturbs me is that there's a baby diaper commercial using Verdi's Requiem....

What are the commercials that use "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better" in them? I remember back in 6th grade people used to sing that song because they remembered the commercial, and I'd be like, "That's from a musical." And they'd say, "It is!?"

only I can't remember what the commercial is for......

LOL I liked the one that was on a while back that had the guy who sang "Kay Sa-ra sa-ra" (sp?" in Beaches...he played Fred the Pharmacist on The Nanny. lol the commercial had him singing, "I'm so happy, I'm floating on cloud nine" while he and a bunch of people danced down the street.

Dotmarie, I don't know what commercial used to use "Anything You Can Do..." in the past but currently it's being used in a laundry detergent commercial. I think it's Tide but not positive of that.
