the top 5 best nascar commercials of 2008

It’s that time of year again for my list of the best NASCAR-related commercials:

5.) Kasey Kahne Can Dance (Allstate): I can’t help but feel a wee bit embarrassed for Kasey Kahne when I watch this commercial. Not because he can’t dance but just because it’s so funny and such a perfect next step in the Allstate girls’ saga.

4.) Jeff Burton on Teamwork (Holiday Inn): One line sums up how funny this commercial is: “How come you don’t have a mullet?”

3.) Team Tylenol Tackles Your Questions (Tylenol): If I’m being honest Kevin Harvick owns this spot and I love it. I have yet to get tired of his expression after Elliott Sadler looks at him like he’s crazy. Brilliant.

2.) The One With The Talking Bird (Napa): Once again Michael Waltrip is in on the joke regarding his racing performance as of late and makes one of the best commercials of the year with the help of a bird who never forgets.

1.) Taste Infringement (Coke Zero): I love this commercial for a couple reasons, like it has a bunch of drivers in it who all do a good job of acting and the Coke Zero guys have the best zingers, I especially love the one at the end with Tony Stewart. Ah, it’s a classic.

    These are all great commercials. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one that is a tad embarasssed for Kasey but it is a great commercial nonetheless. One you didn’t mention that I loved this year was the Toyota commercial with the kids controlling the cars. There is another one I always crack up at when I see it but I cannot remember what it is right now, which figures.

    I agree with all your choices and I agree w/ Tara, the Toyota one is great. I also feel a bit embarrassed for Kasey as well…and they play the commercial WAY too much now, but nonetheless it is fabulous.

    I can’t think of the other one that cracks me up, which obviously means it doens’t count, lol.

    And you sentiments on the commercials, are mine are well.

    GREAT!
