    Good or bad, which commercials have stuck in your heads while watching ROX basketball. In recent years I remember the Reliant's boring guy, Moochie norris in the metro bus, the guy that all he did was laugh during the commercial and several other automobile commercials.

    The southwest airlines commercial when the mailman airballs the basketball in front of the couple and it hits their garage window.

    Most memorable, to me, means the first one that immediately comes to mind....

    Long time ago (Olajuwon years) there was a rockets commerical where a guy was listening to a rockets game on top of a building that went something like this:

    Radio Announcer: Final seconds of the game here, rockets with the ball and a chance to win the game.
    the guy listening is visibly tense and sweating profusely
    Radio Announcer: ...he dribbles down the court, 3 seconds now 2...
    the guy listening is reacting at every number as the clock winds down
    Radio Announcer: ..1 second, at the buzzer ---
    the guy listening appears to be about to faint
    Radio Announcer: and he missed it.
    the guy listening throws up his hands in agony
    the guy listening: That's it! I can't take it anymore!
    guy listening takes a ball and chain and attaches it to his leg and throws it off the building
    Radio Announcer: But wait, he was fouled!
    The guy listening looks at the camera, dumbfounded...

    Narrator voice: Thanks for sticking with us, rockets fans.

    The one that really sticks out in my mind was the K-Y Ultra Gel Personal Lubricant commercial. Good stuff there. :D

    Gotta go with the one where Yao is hanging out with that family and he blocks that kids shot in the arcade.

    But in terms of generic commercials, I'd have to say Gieco is the winner. I just love to see that pissed off smirk that the caveman gives when he finds out that someone is making fun of him.

    there is no audio since it isnt the audio that makes me laugh. Its the expression on her face when the creepy spaceman guy wraps his legs around his head

    and the classic "want to get away?" commercial where the lady breaks the medicine cabinet while poking around in it.

    first off that Yoda chick is HOT! I messed with Miguel if he knew her, before he left Time Warner.

    as far as fav. commercials, i love the one that was mentioned already about the they about to kill himself, but the one I remember was WAY back in the early 90's where they had a Texas State Optical commercial and they named a bunch of optometrists that were local, and I swear they showed that CONSTANTLY during Rockets games that, get this, by like mid season, I stated every doctor by memory.

    as for annoying, the FSN Soccer commercial where he bounces his ball all day is getting REALLY annoying to me.
