RedCouch

The painful red couch song from McDonald’s

The random red couch commercial from McDonald’s is horrible. Specifically, the song about the random red couch and the Dollar Menu is one that’s excruciatingly painful to hear. If you’ve been spared from this commercial to date, here’s what you’re missing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6Ol1kxdiNg Just awful. If you’re an advertiser thinking of trying to use a witty […]

Billboard for rabbit pizza is made from real rabbit

How would you market your new rabbit pizza? If you’re Hell Pizza, a chain located in New Zealand, you use a billboard and attach a bunch of rabbit pelts to it. Real rabbit on your pizza and real rabbit on your billboard. A perfect match, we suppose. As you might imagine, the billboard has been […]

Gatorade makes Bryce Harper extra juicy

Gatorade Fierce is trying to position itself as the ultimate sports drink. Apparently that means commercials depicting Bryce Harper as one juicy, Gatorade-covered player. It also means baseballs which morph into Harper’s screaming face. The whole thing is … interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywLKat-q_s It’s actually pretty much the same ad we’ve seen for ages from Gatorade, but […]

GameofThrones

Denmark had some creative marketing for Game of Thrones

The new season of Game of Thrones didn’t really need any marketing. Despite that fact, we saw several online videos and commercials promoting the show. In Denmark, the Game of Thrones marketing was a bit more creative. Now you have a place to tie up your dragon when you pop in the grocery store.   […]

Danica Patrick on steroids isn’t the best marketing tool

Go Daddy loves the bizarre. Their Super Bowl ad featured Danica Patrick as a bodybuilder running down the street. It was odd and it didn’t make us want to run out and buy some domains from the company. The Patrick angle was an unusual shift from Go Daddy’s usual sex-filled spots. It appears to be […]

PlanetFitness

We’re judging you, Planet Fitness Selfie High Five Guy

Planet Fitness is trying to market itself as the gym with new equipment, low prices and no judgement. It’s not a bad angle, but it’s a shame they’ve rolled out these ads with people so lame we can’t help but judge. And judge we shall! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjc2AWYUSBc&list Selfie is already a tiresome word. Sure, there’s been […]

Taco Bell’s Afternoon Delight is kind of like Arrested Development

Taco Bell is one of hundreds of chains trying to capitalize on the Happy Hour concept. It’s an attempt to boost sales during a slow period of the day (2pm-5pm) despite the fact the usual idea of Happy Hour involves alcohol and hanging out in an establishment which is nothing like Taco Bell. With all […]

Reeses

Reese’s misspells their own slogan

We’re usually pretty supportive of Reese’s. Their commercials are basic, yet they always capture our attention and keep us entertained. Due to their simple nature and limited text, you’d expect the ads to be perfect – especially when it comes to spelling. That’s not quite the case. Watch for their slogan at the very end […]

Skittles Cloud ads prove they aren’t even trying

It must be a pretty cushy job being in charge of marketing and advertising for Skittles. Why? Because you could put just about any ridiculous thing you can think of on TV and seemingly no one objects. Skittles has been using some weird commercials for quite some time. From Skittles acne to Skittles teeth, the […]

Emirates shows off their fancy plane with Pele and Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pele star in a new commercial for Emirates which shows off one of the airliner’s fanciest planes.
