This homemade Doritos commercial has been getting a lot of attention online, and it's a fan favorite to win Doritos' annual "Crash the Super Bowl" contest, in which filmmakers create their own commercials for the brand. The ad features a pet goat whose craving for Doritos becomes dangerous for his owner when the tortilla-chip supply runs out. It was created by filmmaker Ben Callner. According to the "Goat 4 Sale" website, "'Goat 4 Sale' took 2,000 popsicle sticks, 150 bags of Doritos, a goat named Moose and a small team of volunteers from Pogo Pictures, the film production company that took him under their wing." The innovative commercial is now a finalist in the "Crash the Super Bowl"...

Advertising is about knowing your audience. Sometimes you have to target a specific demographic. That's why commercials for toys and sugary cereals air during kids' cartoons and not during "Mad Men." Hadlow College in Kent, England understands this concept. When they made an ad for an Internet audience, they really made an ad for an Internet audience. And what do people who spend a lot of time on the Internet love? Talking animals. Nobody knows that better than us at PawNation. We'd almost always prefer to have a message delivered by a talking animal instead of a boring old human. Hadlow College gets us....

American advertising execs thought they were being clever when they came up with the ubiquitous Got Milk? campaign that's put a thick leche mustache on one too many celebrities. But their counterparts on the other side of the pond have one upped them with a hilarious TV commercial for the Cravendale dairy company that's been running on teles across the U.K. Narrated by "Rocky Horror Picture Show" star Tim Curry, the spot features a posse of felines that suddenly sprout opposable thumbs and gang up on an unsuspecting, milk-pouring man. We don't want to give away too much -- watch the video below -- but there may be a sinister-looking kitty delicately filing her claws in one scene....

The Packers may be getting all the press after the big game yesterday, but do you know who was the real super star of the Super Bowl? Dogs! That's right, two of the top three commercials from the event featured funny pooches. And they weren't just dogs doing doggie-dog things. The two ads that are tied for the No. 1 spot on the 2011 USA Today Super Bowl Ad Meter featured pups acting like -- you guessed it -- people. The Doritos ad (above) shows a dopey guy standing inside the house with a bag of Doritos, teasing a cute -- yet hungry -- pug outside. As you might expect, the joke is on the human when the pug hilariously crashes through the door to get the chip....

R.I.P. Photo: Chris Weeks/Getty Images While Paris Hilton is credited with bringing chihuahuas to the red carpet, it was Gidget who brought lilliputian pups to the mainstream. Best known for her gender bending role as a suave male chihuahua in the Taco Bell ad campaign, Gidget passed away Tuesday night at the age of 15. "She made so many people happy," Gidget's trainer, Sue Chipperton told People.com. "Gidget always knew where the camera was." Taco Bell's dog-centric commercials first aired in 1997 debuting the catchphrase "¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!" Further slogans "Drop the chalupa!" and "Viva Gorditas!" soon followed. Gidget shared the spotlight for some time with another chihuahua,...

Thanks to the advent of Tivo, we rarely sit through commercials anymore. But the other day, we were watching syndicated reruns of The Office when the sight of a cubicle quick-triggered our thumbs to the play button. Sneakily enough, it was not Dunder Mifflin but an ad for Vitamin Water, with the office in question belonging to their rival company Water Incorporated: CEO'd by Mother Nature and run by a menagerie of woodland creatures. It's like The Office meets Country Bear Jamboree!The premise is that a new all-natural Vitamin Water product is cutting into Water Inc.'s market share. But all we really care about is an elk Xeroxing his bum and an agitated rabbit (aka Frank Tonhazy, Head of...
