When you hear “Ave Maria” coming from a television commercial, you’ve got to wonder what’s going on.

In a memorable performance, a marvelous soprano is singing the “Ave” in Latin.

The point of advertising is to make you remember the product. Apparently, that really worked on you. However, "pretty unique," really? Unique does not come in degrees.

My dogs know the music in commercials. When they hear the music for one with animals they run to the TV and patiently wait until the animals arrive, then they bark until the animals go away. It's good exercise for them I suppose.

Our pups do the same Baily they are

Yappy schnauzer's when they hear a bark on tv they get in a trance watching until the dog is off.

My favorite commercial is the Dad taking the daughter to ball games .

Brings back good memories. My 47 year old baby girl is coming Friday for five days. Needless to say Mom & Pop are anxious to visit our sweet attorney . She will reluctantly watch the Texas vs OSU game with me since Texas is her Alma mater. Live is good for this old mom & pop.

Using Enya song, “Only Time,” to advertise Mac & Cheese? I liked the American Express commercials (back of girl playing violin) the first 20 times I heard it. When it comes on now, I am saying, “Oh, No, not again!”

Are you tired of , “Somebody burned down my she- shed”?

I like the little dancing girl, too! She is a ball of fire! I love most animal commercials. I don’t care for the cave man, but GEICO, I love the Gecko 🦎!
