Greatest Local TV Commercials
Jhoon Rhee Self Defense comes in at number 50. As someone who watched the Jhoon Rhee commercials thousands of times in my youth, I say they should be in the top ten. In the writer’s defense, he says he wanted to start the list strong.
At number 41 is one of the worst Empire Carpet ads, dating from 1984. I’d place the various phone number jingles that Empire has ended all their commercials with for the last 30 years between war and cancer on the list of things I’d like to see gone from the world.
DC also provides one of the newest commercials to make the cut — the phenomenon that is the Eastern Motors rap comes in at number 14.
