downloading TV commercials

i watch tv. i see an ad i think is brilliantly shot. i want it on my computer in a file called "great ads that inspire me."

the question is how can i do that? i have found a few ads on You Tube but the quality is usually horrific.

any ideas for better sources?

thanks in advance,

You might want to check the Web site for the advertisers that impress you. It's not uncommon for companies to put their spots on their sites. If they are there, they'd certainly be much higher quality that YouTube.

Depending on your TV set, you may have a video output. If so, connect that to a capture card on your computer and record that way.
