Classic Ad Watch: Remember When Michael Bay Just Directed Car Commercials?

I'm sitting here in Burbank, CA today — and I need to throw something out there. I razz on Mikey Bay. Well, I razz on Mikey Bay a lot! But it's with good reason — the man's taking some serious liberties with my childhood and I'm not going to just sit there and take it. But, we've got to remember the man can do some seriously awesome work with cars — and not just destroying them. Sometimes he's even able to take them on a Magic Carpet Ride. Anyone remember when he used to just do that? Yeah, those were the days...

@cgarison: That was Guy Ritchie, who brought us Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, two of my favorite movies. Oh, and he's snogging some chick named Madonna.

I wish I had a witty, demeaning comment for Mr. Bay here, but I don't. Apparently his Aaron Burr-themed Got Milk? commercial was pretty well-known, and surprisingly (disappointingly) explosion-free.
