No idea why I’ve never noticed them before, but this year I couldn’t help but take note of the Klomps Home & Garden commercials during our local news. I’m not much of a gardener so I’m sure that’s part of it, but I do tend to pick up on ad jingles and such fairly quickly […]
It’s close to the beginning of the month, which got me thinking about something. Whenever I see the commercial for Bravecto, the dog flea and tick preventative, I feel like I’m living in opposite land. First, I’ll show you the commercial. So the commercial says since you only have to give your dog Bravecto once […]
When Rogers Ignite changed their slogan to…this, we couldn’t figure out what it was saying. Was it we give Mike a mop? We can like Mark? We can go to Mars? We can make a month? We can make a monk? Guaca macca mole? We can make a march? We eventually settled on “We can […]
I’m starting to wonder if I’m losing the part of me that responds to the warm fuzzies that some commercials try to generate. Take this YOP ad for example. Granted, the version I keep seeing just starts with the group of four young people saying “If you want to build a better world, …” and […]
I know I have written before about a kid picking on her virtual assistant, but I’ve seen another version of this, and this one seems even worse, in a strange way. Here’s the ad in question…almost. Apparently this ad was made for the Super Bowl, and we got a slightly abbreviated one. In ours, she […]
Who am I to argue with Dick Clark, but nobody ever actually drank hot Dr. Pepper in real life, did they? Please tell me nobody ever did that. It cannot possibly be a thing that ever caught on outside of maybe a mental institute or two. It just can’t. Barfity barf barf.
I went off about this long ass ads on YouTube business at least once before, but I’m going to need to do it again here because holy shit, these people just set some new standards. Thankfully I can skip ads now unlike seven years ago when that was written. If I couldn’t, this post would […]
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 […]
