20 Amazing Commercials That Will Inspire the Greatness in You

If you do, you would have seen countless commercial clips in between TV segments, where companies frantically advertise their products and services in 15-45 seconds, hoping to grab your attention and get you to buy their stuff. Personally, I don’t watch TV for 2 main reasons: (1) most syndicated programs today tend to be quite low consciousness (targeting feelings of jealousy, greed, ego, fear, etc.) (2) it’s a time waster to sit through commercial breaks. What’s more, many commercials today are flashy sales pitches that over-glamorize their products/services. Some prey on people’s insecurities to get you to buy their products.
