Oh hey, I was waiting for this thread to resurface.

Not really a hate ad, but if anyone else lives in the area of Jos. A Bank, their ad announcer is literally the most excited person who has ever sold me a suit. It's like he has an orgasm every time he says the store name or a low, low price.

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.

Oh no, they made a new Education Connection commercial.

Since the 80s themed one went over like a lead balloon, they decided to recycle the first commercial. How could they make the original commercial even more annoying?

Playing mad-libs with the lyrics and hiring an even worse actress!

New one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baXOL3gaQlA
Old one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYS5NtRXlZQ

I was gonna say that I totally saw that new one until I noticed that it was just posted on youtube a few days ago, and is the evil twin version of the older one. Jesus. At that point why not just save the money and start re-airing the old commercial?

Okay, the first time I saw the Coors Light "bar" commercial I thought it was a dumb joke for a beer with a dumb gimmick (our beer is always cold so you can't even tell how lovely it tastes!), but while driving today I heard at least three different versions of that loving commercial on the radio, all with the exact same loving "bar = lawyer test" joke. Apparently some ad exec thinks it's the funniest loving thing ever, and that just shocks me.

Also why are you parents covering up your fiber cereal? If the kid doesn't want it then he doesn't get breakfast.

The best part about all these ads is that it's not like kids that age even have a concept of what fiber is or have been around long enough to taste a lovely fiber enriched cereal.

If you're talking about this one, then yeah, I know I should be offended at how blatantly dumb it is to be all "hurf durf drink for men, bitches leave" but honestly I just can't be mad at a commercial where a dude punches a snake so hard it explodes.

What the hell? I thought everyone just took it for granted that all advertisements are blatant lies by a soulless corporation to get you to throw your money away for their worthless product, but I guess not. Second, that article repeatedly uses words like "brilliant" to describe Axe's ad campaign. What is so goddamn brilliant about "Use our product and hot women will have sex with you."? That's the single most obvious approach I can think of for men's grooming products.

Well see it made them a shitton of money, which makes it pretty brilliant from a marketing standpoint.

That kid would probably take it as some kind of compliment though.

Fashion trends are pretty much all about recycling stuff and old trends coming back over and over again every few years. Bell bottoms and big platform shoes have already come around again at least once. Skinny jeans started out in the 1950s and have been coming back pretty much ever since.

Personally I've noticed a lot of 80s/90s poo poo lately like slap bracelets, t-shirts with GIANT slogans on them (ala George Michael in Wham!), and neon colors that would make your eyes melt. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we see flannel shirts again if not already.

I realize the legitimacy of using a spokesperson of the ethnicity you're targeting, but goddamn if it doesn't rub me the wrong way. It's like if KFC or Popeye's only targeted black people instead of realizing that everyone and their mum loves good fried chicken and assorted sides with biscuits.
