Advertisements: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Postby benjapage » Sat May 20, 2006 9:25 pm

virtually anything by volkswagen is awesome. some of the geico commercials are cool.

but mydearlord, the coors/bud commercials are just straight up unfunny and dull. any of the pizza ads (domino's, papa john's) are just as maddening.

the worst are the red roof inn ads. that guy ("the chances of me working are remote") needs to be pushed off a cliff. they have also, incidentally, made their hotel look even cheaper and dirtier than in reality. that's saying something, too.

so, let's hear it. what ads make you ill? which ones will you actually watch?

b
yeah, yes...

The VW "unpimp the ride" ads are still my favorites to watch. :-) I posted links to 3 of them in another thread. I can find them if anyone wants to see them. :-)

two of my recent favorite commercials are the I think it's XM Radio with the 3 office type guys in the car rapping and when the phone rings they stop...and continue once he hangs up!!! Very funny.

I also like the new either gatorade or nike (can't remember which) with Jeter, Jenny Finch and others all as kids playing with their kiddy bodies and voices. another good one! ;-D


this one might be regional but the commercial that I can't stand is the FMS (Fitness Made Simple) one and that damn song.....Here's John Basedow....he's going to show you how... :-P

One of my favorites is the Sprint (I think) commercial for their walkie-talkie things... There are like three IT guys with a boom box hanging out (one dancing) and a dude busts into the room in a panic because he doesn't know what's going on. They answer all his questions in like 5 seconds and turn the boom box back on. I don't know why, but I get a kick out of that one... :-b

I still like the magic fridge one too... ;-D

I like the new Bud Light? (some beer company) commercials with the men of the square table. The man-laws are pretty good.

The worst ones - and probably only the bay area guys will know what I'm talking about - are the Shane Co. ads where Tom Shane or whatever the #&@! his name is talks and his voice is the most annoying thing I've ever heard in my life and they are all over the radio. Whenever I hear those I ads I want to punch something. Its unbelievable :-°
