Ed Sheeran’s Heinz Ketchup dreams keep coming true!
June 17th, 2019 under Ads, Ed Sheeran. [ Comments: none ]

It is no secret that Ed Sheeran loves his Heinz Ketchup. He has posted about it several times and even, you might even say, harassed the company with admiration for the red condiment. They eventually gave in and created a limited amount of bottles with his name on it.

It does not stop there, he DMed an idea he had for a commercial. What did they do with it? They made the television advertiment. I think he probably likes that more than all of the awards he has gotten for his music. Don’t believe me? Here is what he said, “Okay guyz, so it actually happened. I sent a voice note to @heinz, and we made a whole tv spot around it. This is pretty much what I was aiming for in life. Ketchup ad > stadium tour.”

So, kids around the World, reading this, don’t give up on your dreams. You too can grow up and make a commercial for your favorite product. Sure, I went to college for it and did not go into it. He sends them a DM and he is an advertiser. Don’t tell my dad how much money he wasted on my education. He will be see Heinz Ketchup red!


Do you think Charlie Sheen is nuts?
January 29th, 2019 under Ads, Charlie Sheen. [ Comments: none ]

I think it is safe to say that a lot of people think Charlie Sheen is nuts. We are not the only ones, so does the advertising company behind Planters peanuts because they asked him to be in their Super Bowl commercial that is really nutty. The actor agreed to do it even though he only has one line in the ad. But what a line it is. He declares, “And people think I’m nuts.” He is but not as nuts as Mr. Peanut.


Michael C Hall is starring in Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical for one day only!
January 21st, 2019 under Ads, Broadway. [ Comments: none ]

If you are NYC and have absolutely no intention of watching the Super Bowl on February 3rd, then Skittles has a treat for you. For one day only the Great White Way will taste the rainbow because you can see Michael C Hall starring in Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical at the Town Hall on Broadway. All proceeds from the half-hour show are going to Broadway Cares, which is a really good cause.

The musical is being described as, “Through song and dance, the show takes an absurdly self-reflective look at consumerism and the ever-increasing pervasiveness of brand advertising in our lives.” It makes me want to jump on a plane to go see the show.

Although, you have to wonder what has happened to Michael C Hall’s career. I know the ending for Dexter was bad, but not this bad for his career.


Gillette uses their catchphrase for good!
January 15th, 2019 under Ads. [ Comments: none ]

For 3 decades, Gillette’s catchphrase has been, “The best a man can get.” In 2019, they are asking is “The best men can be?”

A lot has happened in the last two years. Women are shouting it is no longer saying it is OK to sexually harass us and men are waking up to the way they have been treating women. Therefore, Gillette wants to be part of the change. As in the men of tomorrow will not be like the men of the past. They came up with an ad and a campaign, asking men to be better And my hat is off to them.

We can all make a difference, one shave with a Gillette razor at a time.


Lindsay Lohan is the face of
March 20th, 2018 under Ads, Lindsay Lohan. [ Comments: none ]

Lindsay Lohan is as known for her run ins with the law as her acting career, so it make sense that would ask her to be their spokesperson. I guess. At least that is what they were thinking and the company just released their first as with her. Does it make you want to use their service?

I wonder if they are paying her or if they bartered it so that she gets to use their services for free. I think the latter is a more cost effective option for her.
