Re: Great commercial...

Personally, I love this particular commercial, though it has nothing to do with boating.

Re: Great commercial...

I especially love the way they wave at everyone! ((Cue the hatred towards waving boaters))

Re: Great commercial...

The reaction of the woman carrying the child on the escalator is CLASSIC!

I think what makes this commercial so cute is the element of surprise. At first, you do not know what is going on with these people acting so weird, but at the end any boater recognizes exactly what they are doing. I am not sure how many boats this commercial sold (would a non-boater get the joke?), but it was really fun as a boater to watch it.
