The Television Ad

I am looking for recommendations for websites or other resources that exist for clips of television advertisements to deconstruct in class, with K-12 students. Thanks!

USA tv ads

USATVADS has been collecting and filing every TV Commercial broadcast since 1975.

One of the BEST Commercials



A television commercial (often called an advert in the United Kingdom) is a form of advertising in which goods, services, organizations, ideas, etc. are promoted via the medium of television. Most commercials are produced by an outside advertising agency and airtime is purchased from a television channel or network. The first television commercial aired at 2:29 p.m. on July 1, 1941, when the Bulova Watch Company paid $9 to New York City NBC affiliate WNBT (now WNBC) for a 10-second spot aired before a baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies. It simply displayed a Bulova watch over a map of the U.S., with a voiceover of the company's slogan "America runs on Bulova time!"
