ASK FOR IT BY NAME - SARA JO ALLOCCO & YANG MILLER FOR DUNKIN DONUTS

I normally balk at Valentine's Day. Probably because I've been single for most of my adult -- and teenage -- life. But this ... this makes me believe in a thing called love ... and by "this" I mean funnygirl Sara Jo Allocco, the blue-eyed bombshell featured prominently in fuschia top with puffball collar (props to wardrobe, yo). Longtime friend of The Apiary, Sara says she had to bite into more than three dozen Cupid's Choice donuts to nail that take. But all jokes aside, her 5-second turn from lovestruck temp to aggressive emotional eater is brilliant.

The second half of the spot features Yang Miller, who's rocking the short-sleeve, sweater-vest, plus tie combo befitting a patent-office worker. And just look at him stamp that sheet of paper like he's done it a million times. Which he probably did.

Ask For It By Name: Jacob Hawkins and Pat Shepherd for Dunkin' Donuts

My friend Jacob Hawkins told me the producers gave him real iced coffee to drink in this ad. So by the 20th take, he was struggling to keep his shit together. Literally. But that's pretty accurate because whenever I squeeze myself into a corner-window spot at a Dunkin' Donuts, eat two Boston Creams and polish off a medium coffee,  I feel like I can do anything, like find a new job, clean my room and not use the non-existent Dunkin' Donuts bathroom. Unfortunately, that feeling lasts for about two minutes before it's replaced with bottom-scraping self-pity. My other friend, Pat Shepherd (The Baldwins, Threat), who drinks the energy drink, is great because he plays the "Oh, Yeah? Well..." guy perfectly. Add the backwards baseball cap, longsleeve-under-shortsleeve combo and you've got two gym rats in jeans and khakis watching a pickup game. Wait, what?
