Search Engine Flashback

Last week I came across a hilarious Yahoo! commercial on that I just about forgot existed.  Remember those days when Yahoo! was killing it and Sergey Brin and Larry Page (Google Co-founders) were just getting to no each other?  Well, a lot has changed since but the Yahoo! commercials haven’t lost their appeal. Usually we like to provide our readers with informative articles on website design and online marketing but sometimes, especially to kick off the week it is just enough to laugh. Warning: put down the liquids before watching these videos. Sudden jerks, snorts and laughing convulsions  are to be expected.

Dolphin Commercial

The classic dolphin commercial aired during the Superbowl and was a huge hit. It was also the first Yahoo! commercial I ever saw. It’s awesome. I’m still waiting on the talking dolphin my parents promised me. Note to Yahoo: Bring this guy back, maybe your revenues will come back as well.

Fishing Commercial

Any experienced fisherman knows the trick to catching more fish in freshwater is not the bait but the search engine you use. This guy has it figured out.

Monkey Commercial

Are monkey problems putting a strain on your marriage? Then there is only one way to fix it. Get on Yahoo and put your marriage back on track.

Hair Commercial

Usually I read GQ for hair advice but I am thinking of switching to Yahoo as my new resource after watching this far out commercial. Hopefully giant Afros come back into style because I could get down with that!
