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.
