This commercial was voted the second funniest commercial in TBS’ recent poll of the funniest commercials of the year. As I said before, I judge these on how much they make me laugh and each time I see this commercial, it just makes me laugh out loud. Kudos to the E-trade baby and a fairly humorous Monster.com commercial but, this one takes the prize this year.
The commercial is part of Las Vegas’ series of commercials titled ‘What’s your excuse?’ In this commercial, an employee creates a fake holiday, Chinchilli Day, as an excuse to stay an extra day in Vegas (see below). This commercial is also the only one (at least that I know of) that spawned a sequel (see second video).
It’s sequel. This time, the boss wants an extra day so he invents a french version of ChinChili Day.
The bottom line is that you need to get to Vegas. What’s your excuse?
