JetBlue teaches us flight etiquette
September 10th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

While most airlines only have videos about how not to die in plane crash, JetBlue has videos on how to get killed on a plane. Their flight safety videos are all about etiquette because let’s be honest, we’ve all had a horrible experience flying at some point. Like that neighbor who won’t shut up (which is me) or the person who eats smelly food and none of that compares to trying to board. Why is that so difficult? Well now we know how to avoid all of that or maybe not?
Either way, it reminds me why I only fly JetBlue. Well that, and they are the only nonstop from Burbank to NYC! And their free yummy snacks.


The McWhopper needs to happen!
August 26th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

September 21st is Peace One Day and Burger King wants to make peace with McDonald’s for the day with the McWhopper. The bottom half will be the Whopper, the top is the Big Mac and I am drooing already. So McDonald’s accept this proposal because I must have this.
Granted, I could just go to McDonald’s and Burger King, buy a Big Mac and a Whopper and make one myself. But it won’t be the same or will it? I will let you know later today.

UPDATE: McDonald’s responded to Burger King and there is reason why their sales are declining. They suck and don’t get what a brilliant idea BK had with their appeal. If they did, they would’ve understood that this would’ve been great publicity for both fast food joints.

Dear Burger King,
Inspiration for a good cause… great idea.
We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.
We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?
And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.
We’ll be in touch.
-Steve, McDonald’s CEO
P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.


Is this Penn & Teller ad magical or a major fail?
August 6th, 2015 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

Penn & Teller have taken their act to Broadway for a few weeks. The magicians really want you to see their show, so much so that they took out a billboard that reads, “They’ll blow you”.
That is enough to get me to go. After all, we know that they can make magic happen!


Even Ariana Grande’s dog is more employable than she is!
July 28th, 2015 under Ads, Animals. [ Comments: none ]

We know that celebrities love to carry their pooches around in the purses, so Coach came up with an advertising campaign using celebs dogs. The pampered pups are Lady Gaga’s Asia, Miranda Kerr’s Frankie and Ariana Grande’s Toulouse. No word if the ads include Grande’s Beagle-Chihuahua mix licking a donut. If they did, I would buy a Coach purse.
Not only did Coach put this canines to work, they donated money to their favorite charities. Those charities are Downtown Dog Rescue, Best Friends Animal Society’s No Kill Los Angeles and Chicago French Bulldog Rescue.


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.
