The ad that’s too hot for TV!
August 25th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

Jasmin.com wants to advertise their website on broadcast TV, but they claim that no one will air it. As you can see from their above ad the content of their commercial is safe for television So what’s the problem? The website says that the networks have a problem with the content of their website. What is Jasmin.com? It is the leading website for adult webcam entertainment.
So let me get this right, I guess it is OK to air advertisements for movies and videogames that are only for people who are 18 and older, but a website that caters to the same age group is not allowed. A little hypocritical if you ask me.
What do you think? Do you think the ad should be allowed to air or do you agree with the networks?


Thanks Geico for finally getting a commercial right!
July 15th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

This year we have seen some really horrible ads from the likes of Little Caesar’s Pizza, DirectTV and Old Spice to name a few, but Geico will not be on the list. Their latest ad is so brilliant, that it reminded not all advertisers are bad. They did one of their “Did you know?” ads and this one made me take notice. One guy says to the other one, “Did you know that playing cards with Kenny Rogers gets old pretty fast?” Why is that case? Press play for a nice a surprise that will bring a smile to your face. I promise no strings are attached like that DirectTV ad that gives you nightmares.


The Old Spice ads keep getting creppier
July 3rd, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

Old Spice has shown us mothers stalking their sons and Terry Crews slicing off his legs to sell their products, and now they are showing us a head of hair crawling off its owner and wiping the sweat off of a woman at a gym. Another commercial has that same head of hair sliver down its owner to get the guy a reservation at an upscale restaurant. I don’t know who they are attracting to buy their shampoo, but it ain’t me.
BTW, I don’t know what the people are smoking over at the advertising company that came up with these commercials, but obviously its a very bad stash. Seriously, what is wrong with them? Also are they the same company that is working on those weird DirectTV ads? You know the ones with the marionettes?


Terry Crews looks like a ’70s porn star!
June 10th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

As long as we have know Terry Crews as an actor, he has been as bald as a baby’s butt. Well, Old Spice got him to put on a wig for Brazil and I can’t get over how much he looks like a cheesy porn or soap star from the ’70s. And you know what, I find it kind of hot! But then again I think everything he does is kind of hot!
Do you think he should grow his hair out or should he keep the Kojak?


Arby’s created the longest commercial ever, it runs for 13 hours!
June 2nd, 2014 under Ads, Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]

Arby’s wanted to show you how they make their 13-Hour Smokehouse Brisket, so they made a 13 hour commercial to show us the whole process and I do mean whole. Instead of speeding through the over half day smoking, they shot it in real time. It is as interesting to watch as watching meat cook, oh wait!
Actually, it reminds me of the WPIX Yule Log, so it leaves me with a smile on my face. There is something just hypnotizing about it. And the most important thing is that it makes me want to try the sandwich and that is what a commercial is supposed to do.
BTW I wonder how long it took to upload this video to YouTube??? More time than it took to cook that Brisket.


Does the new Happy Meal make you McHappy?
May 20th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: 2 ]

Recently McDonald’s introduced the more fashionable Ronald McDonald and yesterday they debuted the new Happy Meal character. I don’t know who is working for the fast food chain these days, but they need to slow down on these decisions. Because personally I don’t like any of them.
If they want to get their sales back up, then they should serve Chicken Nuggets 24 hours a day and the McRib all year round. I know the latter is the only reason why I eat fast food once a year.

Another horrifying ad from Old Spice
March 17th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

I don’t know what Old Spice‘s advertising agency is smoking, but whatever it is I don’t want any of it.
Earlier this year, they created one of the creepiest ads I’ve ever seen when they had mothers stalking their grown sons as they went out on dates with other women.
Well over the weekend they released a new commercial and it is creepy but in another way. Terry Crews, acting like a downed a few cases of Red Bull, shaved himself off of his face. That’s right, little Crews was a hair on his face and big Crews shaved him off. What’s even worse, besides the obnoxious screaming, is we see little Crews in the sink with his feet cut off. But it didn’t stop there because a razor came and cut the big Crews down to size.
Seriously, WTF are they thinking over at that ad agency because it is beyond weird. I was an out-of-the-box advertising major and even I wouldn’t come up with something as strange as that advertisement.


Is Vanilla Ice now working as a supermarket stock boy?
February 20th, 2014 under Ads, Vanilla Ice. [ Comments: none ]

Vanilla Ice has had successful music career and several shows on HGTV, but has Rob Van Winkle hit a rough patch in his life. So much so that he is now working as a stock boy at a supermarket? Nope, it is just the opposite because he was doing a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with his old buddies The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Just like when I heard his hit, Go Ninaj, Go Ninja Go, from the movie for the first time, I just can’t get the song out of my head.


The 62 year old underwear model with American Apparel
February 4th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

American Apparel is changing things up and they have become a model example of what all clothing lines should follow. While almost every fashion retailer uses skinny, very young models with perfect bodies to sell their clothes, American Apparel is using a 62 year old beauty to model their underwear. Jacky O’Shaughnessy has been working for them since 2011, and now she has gotten a promotion to be their underwear model according to Eonline.
You know what, American Apparel has earned my business and respect just because they are using a real woman to sell their clothes. If the others want to earn too, then they should follow suit. Who else wants to see real women wearing the clothes that we are wearing as compared to women who have bodies we can never achieve without a lot of photoshop.
