Never seen it before, but the tag-line ("charging forward") convinces me that the Unnamed Rhino is a repeat-character for their commercials. Which means this commercial's humor is self-referential, and therefore even worse than it initially appears.

Still better than Squeeky, though.

It's funny because Flash on Android performs horribly and makes me *hate* Flash on mobile devices to the point that Apple's refusal to use it looks like a good idea!

It is even funnier because that commercial is for BlackBerry Playbook. And flash runs perfectly on the Captivate, Inspire, and LG Ally, so your Moto's either suck or you have a major bias.

The Lay's commercials about where they get their potatoe's are back and annoying as they ever were. There is a new one where the guy talks about how much he just LOVES potatoes.

I can't stand those Bud Light "man up" commercials. They're offensively unfunny, and I hate that some of my friends laugh at them. They create an absurd character and then have a hot woman point out that he's absurd. That's not loving funny! If comedy were math, those commercials would be the equation 1=1.

Fundamentally the problem is that they're saying that drinking lite beer is manly. And the only people that can accept that are those that are drinking lite beer already.

Come to think of it, there are probably millions of those people. And they're probably those most susceptible to being called a wuss. So those ads are effective and are going to be on TV for the foreseeable future.

Hooray!

One of the more offensive beer commercials I can recall (of either miller or budweiser) would be the bud light alien chicks. It's on par for their usual sexism but what makes it worse is they try to "even it out" by having the women act like their husbands leaving them to gently caress a bunch of alien women is exactly what they wanted.

I didn't get a lesbian vibe from that at all, just "thank christ we don't have to deal with those assholes anymore, let's have cool parties forever." It's still dumb, sexist and childish, just like "ugggh listening to women is terrible," but if anything the women are being stereotyped as disinterested in sex.

Attention advertising executives:

Having to listen to anybody chew on or suck down food by way of a boom mic is gross and doesn't encourage me to want to buy your product.

I know you're trying to convince me that the actors/actresses are supposed to be enjoying the food, but really it's just reminiscent of Andrew Zimmern trying to talk around giant mouthfuls of food in Bizarre Foods. Unlike that show, your commercial probably isn't hocking half-rotted chicken embryos that have been buried for nearly a month before they're consumed. That doesn't make it any less gross.

That being said, gently caress everyone responsible for this Kit Kat ad campaign. It strikes this primal font of irritation and anger in me; nails on a chalkboard or balloon rubbing doesn't bother me, but the sound of chewing and crunching drives me up a wall.

Keystone knows it's lovely frat party beer, so it doesn't have to even try to sell on anything actually having to do with the beer. It's brilliant, really.

Also Keystone makes cheap lovely beer because if it didn't it would be missing out on a potential market. There is demand for it, and it's happy to be that lowest common denominator of beers, chilling along with Natty.

If any of you are ever within driving distance of Milwaukee you NEED to go on the Miller brewery tour. Their company history films about Miller Time and The High Life are hilarious. And you can get wasted for free afterwards, even if it's not exactly the best beer.

Everyone also laughed like mad when the tour guide tried to tell us with a straight face about the success of Milwaukee's Best as a "lower price" beer.
