jim_gaffigan_tbsIn TV Squad's continued efforts to share the best and worst of TV commercials with you, here's one that's currently airing that's just terrific. Jim Gaffigan for eBay. Think harder. That's his advice for people who are trying to figure out what to buy him for Christmas.

Gaffigan is hilarious with that dry sense of humor and the furrowed brow. How much you want to bet he's been there when it comes to getting crappy gifts. You know, like a coffee mug that looks like it must have been re-gifted from an office birthday party. Or the jewelry box that's too ugly to be put on your dresser. Or a Chatty Cathy doll you received when your parents knew you weren't interested in playing with dolls.

Oops, that last one was a personal one of mine.

Take a look at one of Jim Gaffigan's spots:



One of the reasons I think this campaign works is simple: eBay is a great place to go for Christmas gifts, but might not be the first place you think of to go shopping. These commercials should open some eyes.

Also, it's a reminder that Jim Gaffigan's a very funny guy. Check out the interview he did with Danny last March. Those videos are very, very funny.
