Best Commercial Ever

OK., I may be a little behind the times since I hadn't seen this before, but my love for Meatloaf is well documented.

And a ATT Go Phone commercial with Meatloaf AND Tiffany?

Bonus.

I liked it too, but was in the minority in my house. I was the only one who liked it, or even smiled.

I may have sung along very loudly with the commercial and I may have even broken out the air guitar and hairbrush microphone but I will never tell for sure. Although I did offer to do a Meatloaf air guitar solo at my daughters 5th grade graduation.

I'm really glad you posted this, because the stations here have only shown a shortened version of it. It only showed Tiffany walking in, so I didn't realize that was her. How cool!

I'm just amazed at how "normal" Meatloaf looks these days! This is NOT how I remember him! LOL

When did he get so old? And what does that make me??

Holy cow! I had no idea that was Tiffany! Our stations only play a shortened version so I didn't even recognize her.

I had to point out to my husband that it really was Meatloaf in the commercial.

Which reminds me of my favorite bulletin board, which I happened to see in Your Fair City. It was for a radio station and read "Outkast Waitresses Poison Meatloaf."

Billboard. I meant "billboard."

LOL! I have not seen that before! Thank you for posting it!

I agree, best commercial! Love Meatloaf too -- the singer not the food. Food, icky, singer gotta love him!

Headless Dad and I roll every time it comes on!

I had seen the beginning of the commercial, but not the end.

Thanks.

Even my wife smiled at that one. And wondered if that might really be his son. Of course she smiled a little less when my daughter and I started singing the finally two chorusessss (sp?) :)

I love the whole thought of the kid wanting a cell phone while singing a song about trying to go "all the way" in the car...

And mom and dad are like "sure! We'll sign you up!"

Now, if it were the DAUGHTER asking for the same thing... ? :)

I came upon this at the same time a Macy's commercial about shopping GREEN and giving to an environmental nonprofit group came on the t.v. Cool idea, here is another...the website: http://www.nonprofitshoppingmall.com you can shop at Macy's and several other stores even GREEN stores and a percent of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. Just thought all you busy moms would love this. I use it every time I shop and get to shop from home and be a philanthropist at the same time. ENJOY!

Nice! Do you ever watch Rob The Cradle on VH1? This showis about the children of famous rock stars and Meatloaf's daughter was one of the contests, sadly she was voted off first, but if you like Meatloaf you would have liked her...

That is hysterical!

LOVED IT!!!!! Thanks so much for posting it! I can't wait to show my husband. We love Meatloaf!!!

What happened? Where'd he go?

We are big fans of that commercial in our house, too (for the same reasons).

I'll be darned. I always thought Meatloaf was a black fella. Live and learn.....

Yet another reason I'm glad I read your blog - I had no idea that was Tiffany! I heart Meatloaf, too.

Man, I just just don't know what to think. As commercials go, it is certainly a good one. But on the other hand, it is like ultimate sell out of my memories in a song.

Can anyone explain to me if there is any significance to her carrying that big piece of meat (leg of mutton?) other than an explanation for opening a freezer door so there will be some fog? And was she known for music video's with fog or was fog just a general music video device they were incorporating for fun? (I am aware of who Tiffany "was", but I never heard or saw her before.)

That's hilarious! I hadn't seen it either. Thanks for sharing!

LOL! I saw this commercial while in vacation in Florida - I thought it was hilarious!

I, too, had not seen this full length version, and am so glad that you shared it! My love for Meatloaf has me considering switching cell phone providers! :) Have enjoyed reading your site for a very long time, and am thrilled to know that we have this in common!

That's Tiffany? Ah!

What I kept wondering was if the kid was Meatloaf's son.

I heart this commercial! Loved this song back in the day and even now. Oh, the memories......

I also love the show Sleep on It, on HGTV, which opens to a remake...heh....of this song.

It is so cool to bring back what was popular when we were kiddos so we can share it with our kiddos and make us look, well, kinda cool, in their eyes. If they only knew......LOL

Yes, thank you, Meatloaf, for the memories and for the whining I am now enduring for a GO phone. We only have a drawer full of all of the "it's the one everybody has" phones. LOL

I love Meatloaf and make my hubby stop fast forwarding through the commercials when I see this one. I thought it was quite clever!

I love that Mom was played by Tiffany, but how much cooler would it have been with Ellen Foley coming back to resing her original lines?

It's probably a reference to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Meatloaf was hacked to bits and frozen before being used as a dinner centerpiece in that movie

Posted by: mike | May 6, 2008 11:21 PM

Thanks, Mike, that makes sense. I saw that movie, but so long ago I can't remember that part even after your reminder.
