This is the only channel that makes me miss cable. I'm still not paying $50 a month for it.

I get a kick out of this one too. I found myself huming it at work. It was on the TV at a gas station a while back and the tenant started to talk about it. He stated that he did not care if it sounds dumb or not, he really like the commercial. BOO-GA-LEE-YADA!!!

The first time I saw it (watching tv at my folks' house) I thought the first astronaut said "We're never going home are we?" and it made the commercial have a very dark/hilarious angle.

Must be a regional thing because I've never seen it. I watch Discovery a lot. Does anybody remember their "Hello Mosquito" or "Hello Meteor" commercials from about ten years ago? My wife and I still preface phone calls to each other with those every now and then. They are ridiculously silly, but for whatever reason, they stuck with us.

Then another of my favorites that is totally unrelated to the Discovery Channel, especially the very end:

Not Discovery channel, but I came across these old John Cleese Compaq computer ads. All of them are good. A compaq computer is better than a dead fish...
