I like those commercials where the sound is turned off all of a sudden...some cell-phone service maybe ?? At first I thought it was stupid Comcast breaking down again.

The magic fridge is a good one.


just a random thought here related to advertising...because a commercial is funny or memorable, it doesn't make me go out and buy the product. Where's the Beef is definitely memorable...yet it didn't make me wanna go get Wendy's any more. I hated the stupid Taco Bell yo quiero dog but that didn't prevent me from getting meximelts.

a bad ad--taco bell--will prompt me to avoid a place, but i'm in the minority. sometimes, it only serves to keep the brand name on the tip of the consumers' tongue.

but i swear to god, i will never stay in a red roof inn, as long as they keep circulating the FREAKING STUPIDARSE ad. "m-u-u-lt-i-tasking!" you are a tOOlboX, holmes. i can't get to the mute button fast enough when that drecht pops up on my screen.

Just in case some of you HAVEN'T seen the Red Roof Inn ads we're all complaining about, I found a couple on YouTube. Watch at your own peril.


Here's one.

Here's another



I wish I could find a clip of that Dunkin Donuts "Karate" commercial, but I can't.

Another one to file under Good. The not-bad-looking-as-in-I-wouldn't-kick-her-out-of-bed-for-eating-crackers Sofia Boutella (Boutelle?) throwing down some street dancing to impress a giant speaker.
