Yeah, every second of that commercial is about dicking. Congratulations for cracking the DaMagnum code.

I definitely recognize that parrot's voice. I think he's better than that kind of work, but I guess money's money, especially for non-unionized voice actors.

I don't think so. The natural, geological forces of the planet on which Cars takes place make mountains in the shape of cadillacs. It'd take more than a few days in the tail of a comet to do that to Earth.

Pretty sure Cars showed living military jets flying in formation over the racetrack at one point. I bet their missiles are alive, too.

Briefly, gloriously alive.

On topic I loving hate Gossett VW of Alpharetta in Georgia simply for these commercials:

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.

So…the women are excited because now they can drink Bud Light and eat each others muffs without some icky boy cooties interrupting them?

Bud Light: for losers who want to pork aliens and lesbians.



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.

e: hahaha, I just noticed that one of the women in the crowd at the end is a soldier, that's pretty cool

If you think there's no consciously arranged sexual subtext to that commercial, you've lost the media analysis game.

Doy. It has nothing to do with condoms, however. It's just the old standby of "women have a sexual attraction to chocolate". Saying that it's meant to make you think about condoms is insane.

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood. But Magnum also means large or big, condoms are one of the cases where that usage is common (can't think of a common modern case where it means "grand" or "impressive, actually), and the lady puts a big chocolate cock in her mouth, so it seems like a reasonable leap to me.

I don't know what it is, I don't care what it is, I just want this loving commercial off my goddamn TV.

Hahahaha holy poo poo that was so much worse than I could have ever imagined. I thought it would be something like the french furry Orangina ad, but no, that travesty has been dethroned.

I bet it was made by a film school graduate lashing out at the commercial culture that employs them in a Bamboozled-esque ploy to stick one to the man and/or get thrown out of the business. Look at the camera angles, the image quality, the sound effects, the humiliating/scatological details, the over-direction...a lot of professional frustration went into this commercial for stain-and-scent remover (?).

That explanation - that this commercial was made to punish us for watching it - somehow makes it better for me. By which I mean, I can't stop laughing at how awful it is.

Chrome tells me I've seen it before. Probably in the old thread?

What the gently caress is he squawking for at the end? Either way, he does not compare to Squeeky.

I thought that was the point: they're so put out by the "racism" they face, when actually they're just reskinned SoCal Upper-Middle-Class White Guys who take their ~feelings~ too seriously.

The most carbon-friendly car is a used one: so much energy is used making a car that you'd need to drive your prius a few decades before the savings would make up for it.

For highest fuel-efficiency, get a pickup, carry a dozen people at once, and drive about ten miles an hour once a day to the marketplace and back.

I'd love to see that commercial. Or one that pointed that out and then finished with "...So gently caress the earth! Buy our SUV!"

Since there is no thread for good ads, I'd like to say Chevy knocked one out of the park with the commercial where people hold past pictures up to various places with Ray Charles singing in the background. Really good visuals all around in the commercial.

Sorry for the lovely quality but this is all I could find without the audio removed:
