In its ’80s flashback commercial, RadioShack had the guts to make fun of itself — and in the process, it dropped a nostalgia bomb on Gen Xers.

Bud Light’s wild night with a guy named Ian is like a mini-“Hangover.” And it’s a great performance from Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays “tiny tennis” (Extended version here).

A time traveling machine that runs on Doritos becomes a case of mistaken identity in this winning fan-created spot.

Finally, a rancher-driving-a-pickup-truck commercial that doesn’t take itself so seriously. Chevy pokes fun at itself by adding a twist to its longstanding “A man and his truck” formula.

GoDaddy’s turn away from its old sleazy marketing strategy was a good one — this year’s Danica Patrick commercial made people laugh, not cringe.
