You’ll be a pig in a blanket if you eat this pizza!
June 11th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]



Little Caesars has surrounded their pizza crust with bacon. Pizza Hut Down Under put meat pies in theirs. Now the Yanks are putting pigs in a blanket in theirs. On June 18th, you can order your pepperoni pizza surrounded by mini franks from Pizza Hut. It’s an appetizer and a meal all rolled into one. When you are done, you can call 9-1-1.
I don’t know what has happened in the last few years, but I think all of fast food companies are trying to kills us even faster than they did before. Every time I wonder, what the heck they are going to come up with next, they come up with something even more horrifying and scrumptious than the last thing. For the last few days I’ve seen ads from Carls Jr for their The Most American Thickburger that is topped with a hot dog and bottomed out with chips. As disgusting and unhealthy as that looks, I so want to sink my teeth into one. Just as my mind pictures it, my heart reminds me what I shouldn’t do with a painful reminder.
What is the most tantalizing thing you’ve seen from a fast food company recently?

Schick has three ladies demonstrate how to trim their bushes!
April 15th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]


Schick came up with an ingenious way to advertise their Hydro Silk TrimStyle Razor, and I am sure the commercial will get men excited! They had three ladies in bikinis come out to trim their bushes, that were as the same height as their own bushes, and then they had them cut the excess bush away. The two women with scissors messed it up, while the one with Schick was able to shape her bush into a heart. Like I said, I am sure the men will heart this ad.
I have to admit that this ad took a lot of balls, even though there were no balls used in the making of it.
Lastly, I love Schick’s schtick. Whoever came up with this commercial really has razor sharp wit.
I’ll stop before you find a new use for their razor and it is on me.

Hi, I’m Rob Lowe and I’m out of work Rob Lowe from DirecTV
April 8th, 2015 under Ads, Brat Pack. [ Comments: none ]


It is a sad day in the advertising because Comcast’s complaints reportedly got DirecTV to pull their Rob Lowe ad campaign. According to CNBC, the Council of Better Business Bureaus’ National Advertising Division ruled against DirecTV, saying that some of the claims in their commercials are false, and because of that they had no choice but to pull the advertisements for the time being. I say for the time being because they plan on appealing the decision. I hope they win because I really enjoyed Rob Lowe and all of his alter egos.
Talking about the Brat Packer, here’s what he said about it on Twitter, “Recent events have underlined my belief that for something to be truly original, funny and subversive, there must also be fallout. #Life”

If only ads from the ’90s were this dope?
February 4th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]


via Zap2It
If you watched television in the ’90s, then you remember how they marketed all of those kids commercials for cereals, drinks in pouches and pizza rolls? Well, RocketJump 2 recreated those memories by combining all of those ads together to make a really sweet one that will make you miss that bangin’ decade.
While this advertisement might not have been fly enough to air during the Super Bowl, it is still the best commercial you will see all week. The surprise is what really makes it the shiznit! Don’t you think it is totally phat?

The Super Bowl ads were a real downer
February 2nd, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: 1 ]




The only people that should’ve been depressed yesterday were the Seattle Seahwawks and their fans, but that was not the case. Anyone who watched the game on television felt the need to drown their sorrows after they watched some of the ads. Nationwide killed off a kid, Nissan was all about an absentee dad and Budweiser told the tale of a missing dog, how can you not be depressed after that? Even Angry Liam Neeson changed his emotion to Sad Liam Neeson. You know it is bad when you look forward to a toe fungus commercial.
So let me get this right, ads that are too sexy should be banned, but ones with a dead kid are OK? Time to reevaluate where we stand on Super Bowl commercials. Can we go back to happy, stupid, over the top advertisements in 2015?

Old Spice’s latest creepy commercial!
November 24th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]


I don’t what it is about Old Spice, but they love to come up with the creepiest advertisements. Earlier this year, they gave us all nightmares with how far mothers will go to keep their sons as their little boys. Now, they have upped the game and added fathers to their song and dance number. If this doesn’t weird you out, then you are much stronger person than I am.
Old Spice may not want you see sweat, but definitely want to see us have nightmares.

Kmart’s non-Christmas Christmas ad in September
September 17th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]


School is barely back in session, Halloween is still over a month away, but that isn’t stopping retailers from bringing out their Christmas decorations now. In fact, it has gotten so bad that Kmart released a Christmas ad, although they say it isn’t one. You be the judge.
When will this madness stop? Will we see 4th of July decorations next to Santa Clause next year? Easter bunnies next to reindeers? Valentine’s hearts next to ornaments? Can we go back to the days when we waited until Black Friday to celebrate the holiday? Because we are still 98 days away from December 25th and I am already sick of Christmas. Bah humbug!

What did Abraham Lincoln do to deserve this?
September 15th, 2014 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]


So Enjoy Illinois has an ad campaign where they use a mini version of their biggest resident of all time, Abraham Lincoln, to promote their state.
In the latest ad, he is seen whisking off a tiny Mary Todd, like Richard Gere did in An Officer and a Gentleman. I am just speechless after seeing that. How can the state that has some of the largest advertising agencies in the world, come up with a commercial like that for the 16th President, one of the best leaders our country has ever seen. It is so disrespectful on so many levels.
This ad doesn’t make me want to visit the Land of Lincoln, it makes me want to avoid the state like its the plague.
I just picture Honest Abe rolling over in his grave in Springfield, Illinois because of this advertisement. Would anyone blame him? Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was more respectful to his legacy than this ad. Actually that was good movie, you should see it if you haven’t.

Robert Hays just can’t get away from Airplane!
September 2nd, 2014 under Ads, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]


Even though it has been almost 35 years since Airplane came out, that isn’t stopping from Robert Hays from playing his most famous character twice this year. First, he resurrected Ted Striker for Sharknado 2 and now he is doing it again for Wisconsin. Unlike the Syfy movie, this time he had some co-stars with him on this flight. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was once again his co-pilot Roger Murdock and there is another surprise fans of the franchise will enjoy!
Thank you Wisconsin for doing this ad, it was anything but cheesy. Or wait, is it supposed to be cheesy, you know, because that is what the state is known for?
Either way, I loved it! Maybe the Zucker Brothers will consider boarding this franchise again?

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?
