Surprised I never see that bad ad during Bar Rescue.

Also I am not very happy with Comcast these days and would love to switch if AT&T ever puts Fiber in the area (right now it DHL only) but what happened with cable to make Direct TV hate cable so much that they have to remind us every loving ad. Did their parents get murdered by a cable repairman or something?

"Captain Morgan" was actually on the show, to promote "knowledge" of the brand. I guess people learned jack poo poo when the show would fly them to Ireland to learn about Guinness or Jameson's terrible amazing and perfect new products.

Like the growth factor 9 ones where itís marketed towards guys as GO LONGER AND STRONGER and LEAN MUSCLE MASS and show some guy running and dancing with his wife after he (obviously ) pleases her in bed, whereas they market the same product for women talking about removing fat and sagging skin? Itís funny because they NEVER show them during the same block of shows, and the woman one Iíve only seen on the TLC GO app, which they probably think used primarily by women. The male one is always on during daytime tv on a channel that shows Jerry Springer and King of Queens.

I really want to know their reasons for this discrepancy. Is it actually just sexist or do they do real research on gender about people who watch whatever show/channel/app?

Thatís hilarious that they have tv ads about this too because every bus stop in my city has ads saying like ďxyz is not your friend, Facebook is only for talking to friends and weíre working to change that!Ē And theyíd been up for quite a while when some goon posted complaining about fake lying ads on Facebook. Makes me a bit happy (donít mean to be smug, I quit for bad reasons), that I havenít had a Facebook in like 7 years.


Hahaha I didnít want to watch this at first (no offense) but lol that itís the same as the bus ads.

The only thing sort of interesting about these two commercials is that Karan Soni and Gillian Jacobs pass one another when they are walking about the side walk but you only see them from the side of their own commercial.

There's also a British version of the Gillian Jacobs one that's a shot for shot copy (except there's an extra line about "athleisure" that seems to be cut out of the US version) but there doesn't seem to be a corresponding ad for the Karan Soni analog.

So it turns out that they're completely removing any trace of Papa John, so new commercials and they're going to remove him from the logo altogether. (Also the company kicked him out of his office.)

I could see them doing something like just referring to the company as "Papas" in commercials and the press but I doubt they'll officially change the name.

If their sales suffer over the next few months, they will absolutely change the name without hesitation. It's a good excuse to completely revamped a stale brand that was suffering already.

I liked it--it was witty enough and a lot more impressive than I was expecting for a girl's toy cartoon. So I thought, "Hmm. I'm on Something Awful. I don't see a thread for this anywhere, but other people might like it--it's not like it would be the first cartoon for kids that SA's taken a shine to." So I made a real earnest thread and put it up in TV/IV. And I was both right and wrong, because the forum blew up and fell over, and the thread got raided to shit by FYAD, and in like I think two weeks the show was banned outright because people kept causing fucking drama.

I just saw this ad for Progressive that reminds me soooo creepily of the Walmart Manager guy making the employees sing a song to the tune of Queenís ďwe will rock you.Ē The ad is literally a guy on a megaphone telling this group of 20 people unenthusiastically singing some song and heís like YOU GOTTA SING IT LOUDER and then they do and are like robots singing a dumb jingle, and the guy LITERALLY PUTS PRAYER HANDS IN FRONT OF HIS FACE AND KNEELS DOWN WHEN THEY DO.

Yes I am getting $.50 more an hour than my employees but BOY HOWDY am I excited about my job and care cause Iím gonna get promoted!!!! (No Iím not but Iím gonna delude myself that I am)
