One of the many reasons I love living in Thailand is watching Thai TV commercials. Creative and smart, and beautifully filmed, many Thai TV commercials are also hilarious.
So funny are they, Thai commercial production companies are now famous around the region, and often win international awards for their work.
Thai TV commercials are also why I tell people, on a vacation in Thailand, even if you don’t understand the language, spend a few minutes a day watching Thai TV. You will learn something about the culture, and you will soon be glued to the commercial breaks.
For those of you who cannot make it to Thailand just yet however, some of Thailand’s most popular commercials have now gone viral on YouTube.
Here are my picks of the five funniest Thai TV commericals.
