As fast-forwarding becomes more and more prevalent in today’s TV-watching habits, commercials have stepped up their game to entice viewers to actually watch the commercial breaks during their favorite shows. 2013 offered up a lot of hilarious, clever, and entertaining commercials, and truTV is counting down the Top 20 ads in “Funniest Commercials of the Year.”
Hosted by “Wipeout’s” John Henson, the special counts down the funniest commercials from the past year while also shining a spotlight on honorable mentions and previous years’ champions — last year’s top commercial was the memorable Doritos baby sling shot ad.
Even if you’re an avid commercial-watcher, this special will feature some commercials never before seen in the United States from the U.K., France, China, and more. Some American ads included in the countdown are Amy Poehler’s Best Buy commercial and the Mentos “Don’t Become Your Dad” campaign.
Did your favorite commercial make the Top 20? Find out when truTV’s “Funniest Commercials of the Year” airs on Sunday (Jan. 5) at 9 p.m. ET.
