Best Olympics-Related Commercials So Far

Happy July 26, friends! (That’s right — July 26. Meaning it’s 2012 Summer Olympics Eve!)

In honor of this sacred occasion, I thought I’d share some of the best Olympic-themed commercials I’ve seen so far. (I know we’ll be introduced to many more during the actual games, so this is a warm-up of sorts.):

“Hopeful” by DOW proves that even the planet has an Olympic dream:

AT&T’s “Warming Up” ad, featuring Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, and “Afternoon Run” with marathoner Ryan Hall, are both worth a watch:

And come on — who can resist a good Morgan Freeman-voiced Visa commercial?:

In this Nintendo ad, Mario and Sonic make an appearance at the Games:

The super-speedy Usain Bolt (I still can’t get over how perfect his last name is) races around London in this Visa ad:

This McDonald’s UK ad is nice and heartwarming:

What favorite ads do you have to add to the list?
