I keep seeing the ads for A&W’s Wild-Caught Cod Burger. I find them interesting, because until they came along I had no idea there were cod burgers in the wild.
I first saw this commercial with no context beyond ha ha, look at this silly ass punk album that doesn’t have any punk songs on it. And while yes, it’s amusing enough that way, I’d love to know how this happened. How did we get all the way to the point of this going to […]
This friggin commercial drove me batty this Christmas season. and not for the reason you’re probably thinking, that it ran six jillion times an hour, especially on certain channels. No, it’s for these three reasons. First, I had no idea what it was for. This happens more times these days than I’d like. I’d like […]
I’m starting to get irritated by the Casper mattress commercial. “Try it today for 100 nights risk free,” it says. How? I can do one or the other, but not both. That’s not how time works. How about “order today and try it for 100 nights risk free?” Is this really that hard?
I don’t understand the “eggs for dinner isn’t weird, you’re weird for thinking it’s weird” commercials. Is eggs for dinner really a weird thing? I know tons of people who do that, and most of them are pretty normal. If eggs for dinner is weird, why do so many restaurants serve all day breakfast? I […]
Perhaps you remember me writing about those damn fake celebrity endorsements that were constantly popping up here and pretty well everywhere else on the internet for a while. If you do, chances are you may be interested in this long article about Ads Inc., one of the companies seemingly responsible for a lot of them. […]
Question for whomever wrote those ZipRecruiter commercials on the radio: The part where you give out the special web address ZipRecruiter.com/canada and then have the voice guy spell out the word Canada, who is that for, exactly? We’re in Canada. Anyone in a position to need that address is probably going to know how to […]
Not sure if the ad on TV for Buckley’s Complete + Mucus bothers anyone else, but it’s been bugging the heck out of me. The name of the product doesn’t make any sense. If something is complete, it’s done. The minute you have to add a +, it’s no longer complete and the thing you’ve […]
I like the little song in the Volkswagen commercials. It’s bouncy, it’s catchy, it’s fun to sing along to…especially when you actually know the words. I wasn’t sure if I was going deaf, there was too much background noise, I always caught it from a distance or some combination of the three, but for a […]
Let me make sure I have this right. The Conservatives bought advertising time on television stations so that they could show advertisements like this one that advertise all of the bad things that Justin Trudeau has done, and then tell us at the end of all of their advertisements that Justin Trudeau is not as […]
