Double negatives (not sure if it is) be damned, because I dislike nothing about this commercial. Vampire Weekend playing in the background, Adam Scott, Vodka, a beautiful girl, and ironic hipsters? Sign me up. Commercial heaven. My eyes and ears thank you, Smirnoff.
Did Amazon approve this commercial? It’s on the official Kindle YouTube page so it must be legit, but this looks like Gary Busey got his hands on a camera and found someone capable of editing videos and just started talking to himself. Saying hi to a lamp, then creating a different voice so the lamp could say hi back to him. Saying hi to his pants. Screaming at the ocean. If Amazon did indeed support this then I can no longer trust them. Anyone who uses Gary Busy to endorse their product has clearly lost their minds. However I will still use Amazon Prime because that is an amazing service.
Ok, so this clearly wasn’t even close to endorsed by McDonalds on any level. Doesn’t change the fact that it is horrifying. I still don’t understand the irrational fear of clowns a lot of people have, but with this video I can kind of see where they are coming from. KIND OF
You want to know the most disturbing thing about that commercial? The reaction of the woman behind the register. You just saw someone tear a piece of their face off to pay for a pack of smokes and your reaction is “take care”? Is this a normal occurrence for this woman? Does she see a lot of face peeling at her job? I need answers, and I need them now. This commercial doesn’t make me hate cigarettes, it makes me never want to go into a convenience store again.
You know it’s on when the mascots are getting involved! The Monday after the Super Bowl should be a holiday. I will take the sentiment to my grave.
PS- Apparently people in the UK aren’t as excited as I am
Admittedly I’m a sucker for these kind of commercials, but this was pretty cool. Granted some kids are just obsessed with their phones and they’re not putting together a family home movie that looks like it was directed by Scorcese; but this was still really well done. Next time you see a kid with an IPhone in their hand during a social situation, maybe you should think twice about judging them. They could be making a beautiful amateur film about your life.
If this is one of the finalists for the Doritos Superbowl commercial then I need to have a small chat with the judges.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this thing does nothing to make bacon healthier to eat. You know how to make bacon healthier? Open up the package and throw it into the garbage. Those are the facts. Bacon is terrible for you. Is it the most delicious treat on the planet? Oh hell yeah it is, but it’s probably better for your wellbeing to slam your head into a concrete wall rather than eat bacon all the time. I digress.
I have some marketing/business advice for Bacon Wave. Start selling bacon. Open up a slaughter house, steal some pigs, do what you gotta do, because the only thing this infomercial made me want to do was stuff my face with greasy bacon.
Gotta go. I don’t have any bacon in the house. Next stop, the supermarket.
PS- I recently had chocolate covered bacon at a country faire and guess what, it was incredible.
