I always like a good commercial as long as its well done. This one is for a French children's television program. It tells the tale of why Pandas are Black and White.

And this is for a Belgian bus company:

Obviously, I'm not the target audience, but I really appreciate the creativity that went into them (and if I ever make it to Belgium and am taking the bus...)

The panda clip reminded me of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin. I liked the "painting" involved.
The second clip was ... um ... surprising and ... um ... different.
They both make you think, though.

Winnie the Pooh? I love Winnie the Pooh! (I hope the new movie lives up to my expectations).
