I'm not particularly fond of this label, but the collection of ads (120 of them) is nice and the price is right.
Pros: The majority of ads are above-average video quality. Nice assortment. Many celebrity ads show long-forgotten (and astonishingly YOUNG) faces.
Cons: Watermarks everywhere on the corners of the screen. Annoying and large celebrity names in the bottom left corners of all ads...take too long to fade out. Distracting and intentional, so that others don't dupe them, I suppose. UPDATE: The buyer above is correct: this DVD does not play properly and does indeed flip you back to the main menu. You can still view all the ads, but it does require frustrating jumping back and forth to view them. Very botched.
Bottom line: recommended.

This WOULD have been good, had it not been for the big watermark at the top of the screen that stays there on every frame!! I'll never buy another disc from Passport again, in fact I should send this back to them.
If that wasn't enough, they screwed up the programming on this disc too- several times it goes back to the main menu then you have to search back to where you were, and selecting individual commercials from the menu sometimes brings you to the wrong part! Several things are misspelled too. Go with the Madacy Classic Commercials DVD instead; even though the quality of that one isn't great, at least there's no added on-screen junk and it actually plays all the way through!
