Can a commercial be a work of art?

I just saw this PROGRESSIVE auto insurance ad and i laughed and was fascinated and surprised - the reactions one should have when viewing a work of art. I feel like I would watch a movie with this mysterious 'messenger' character (who looks like my uncle Dougie circa 1977). Is it art? Can something designed to make you buy something be art? Is it merely entertainment and I'm deluding myself?
