"My man" may not look like someone who could be in one of those commercials, but I love the way he looks just as he is.

And then I think about how obvious they're making it, which suggests that they're making fun of that sort of thing (commercials use "sexy people" to sell their crap all the time-- so it's almost like they're just being more honest about it).
I completely get what you're saying. I saw it as satire. The way they throw "sexy people" in your face for everything from Cheerios to hemorrhoid cream. I saw this as poking fun at that and so I found it hilarious.

DH actually showed me this commercial. He loves it more than me! Lol. I think it's hilarious, and no, this man isn't my husband, but we all know that we'd rather be with OUR spouses on a boat or a horse than with this guy, funny as he is.

I love it when the tickets turn to diamonds .

This is DH's and my favorite commercial. Every time we see it, we laugh and laugh. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

I think this is one of the funniest commercials I have seen. Yet I do find it troubling with the in your face humor, that I find kind of sexist. There has been some feminist discussion (bitch magazine or bust maybe?) about whether it is demeaning to women, humorous or not. Also I watched a great interview with the 2 Wieden & Kennedy ad writers, telling how they filmed the whole thing in real time, with sets, not computers, like a single camera take.
