Top 5 Silly Winter Product Commercials

Maybe it’s the holiday spirit, or just stir craziness from being stuck inside where it’s warm. But for whatever reason, winter seems to bring out the silly side of people. That includes advertisers. The commercials that come out in the winter season are often unusually funny (and often feature pratfalls in slippery snow and ice.) Whether or not you really need what they’re selling, these kinds of commercials are always worth a laugh. Take a look at the top five funniest winter-themed commercials, and then take a minute to think about products that you really need this winter.

Speaking of silly products, do you really need that mistletoe mustache warmer?
  • The Winter Blues: This Expedia commercial will either make you laugh – or, if you can sympathize with the actors who perfectly portray that feeling you get when you’ve just had enough cold and snow, it may make you cry. Either way, it probably will get you thinking about that vacation you’ve been meaning to take.

 

  • She’s Getting Away: Have you ever noticed that the cashier made a mistake in your favor, and contemplated just getting out of the store as fast as you can, before anyone can catch the error? That’s apparently what the Ikea winter sale feels like – only, it’s not a mistake this time. Still, it’s funny to watch the shopper hightail it out of the store with her low-priced goods.

     

  • Snow Blind: As the actor in this Statoil commercial finds out, you have to be careful when you’re clearing the ice off of your car in the snow. If your car is shaped too much like the one next to it, you might just find that you’ve unwittingly done a good deed for a stranger – but your car is still covered in icy snow. Still, the commercial ends with an offer of free coffee, so that’s a definite step in the right direction for someone who’s covered with snow from two different vehicles.

 

  • Slip and Slide: Have you been waiting for those pratfalls on the slippery ice? Here they are, in a HeatTrak commercial that takes a lighthearted look at the futility of shoveling your walk in the unceasing snow – not to mention the futility of trying to stay upright on the ice. The heated mats that make shoveling a thing of the past do look handy, though.

 

  • Mayhem: Granted, this Allstate commercial isn’t necessarily winter-themed. However, it does star Dean Winters, driving a pink truck and pretending to be a teenage girl. Sort of. In any case, it’s hilarious.

 

Before you think about running off on vacation this winter, though, and even before you think about keeping the snow off your walkway, it’s important to think about the snow that’s going to be landing on your roof. Sure, icicles hanging off the roof may look pretty, but their weight can dent or damage your gutter system, or bring it down completely, and that’s not funny at all.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.

We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
