I like the ShamWow ad blush.gif I think it looks great and I kind of have an incy-wincy crush on the spiky-haired guy who is so enthusiastic about cleaning up spills.

I love the Flavourwave oven infomercial with Mr T - If there is nothing else on Austar I'll throw that on. blush.gif

I love Star Wars, in a rather OTT way I will admit, but I just assume people who DON"T like Star Wars are the lame-o's.

We do 'themed meal nights' here.. I am guessing other people would find that rather lame too - I prefer to think it is 1950's cool!

I loved the Mr T snickers ad.

I also like a few of Keith Urban's songs  ph34r.gif

Air Supply.

was raised on it - Mum and Dad only had that or Olivia Newton John for looooong car trips so the lyrics to Air Supply are forever burnt on my brain.

BUt then I lived in the Philippines and found out that Air Supply is still a cool band there!!!
So I could sing their songs on Karaoke nights till my heart was content!! Excellent.

so I think lame is contextual.... considering moving to provincial parts of Asia... because I am cooler there tongue.gif

I love that we sold our "cool" house in "trendy" Balmain and moved to a suburban house in the not so "trendy" Blue Mountains, I quit my advertising job and DH quit his Project Management job and now we have a mobile dog wash earning a quarter of what we used to! Our friends think we must be smoking crack - nope, can't afford that roll2.gif

I pretended to buy the Hannah Montana movie DVD for my daughter, but we all know it was really for me!
I am so obsessed with twilight that I am going to the midnight screening of New Moon, as well as the showing of Twilight beforehand - that will make 6 times of seeing twilight at the movies!
I also love Peppa Pig and "Phineas and Ferb"
I dont consider Harry Potter to be lame!

Melly S - I love Christmas too

I also used to love the Jeep Cherokee ad with Arnie saying 'C'mon!'  'You can do it!' - think their new ad is stupid though.
