Oh please. Can we finally put that Tom Cruise Risky Business scene out of its misery? A moratorium, please? I mean seriously. Is there no creativity left? Do we have to keep riffing off famous movies scenes and other things until they've been so defiled they aren't worth riffing off any more? Please. Make it stop

This ad works great right now because of March Madness. I am still a fan of these commercials because they are recogizable and fun. Using new types of celebrities each time is great too. I have not gotten bored of these ads yet because, by imitating the risky business scene multiple times, they are creating association, which is a great thing for a brand to have.

Have to admit, I like this spot. Juxtaposing Coach Knight with Metallica just makes me happy...
