Smashburger

This Smashburger ad is full of cringe

If you live in an area with a Smashburger, you may have seen this cringe-worthy ad. Smashburger, a burger chain which actually makes a really delicious burger, has been using an ad which is difficult to sit through and deserves to be mocked.

VirginAmerica

Virgin America’s six-hour ad is intentionally boring

Would you watch an ad which is nearly six hours long? Virgin America is betting that you won’t even though they just rolled out an ad which clocks in at five hours and 46 minutes. The ad, if it can really be called that, highlights flying at its worst. Told with mannequins (extremely creepy ones […]

Columbus Day Classic: The Mattress Depot sale

I have to admit, unearthing this Columbus Day Classic on YouTube was inspired by John Oliver’s recent video asking “Why is Columbus Day still a thing?”  Columbus Day is a bit perplexing in that it’s not widely celebrated, the vast majority of people aren’t even given the day off, Columbus didn’t actually “discover” America (it had […]

This Charlotte Hornets comeback commercial is heavy on nostalgia

After a long, strange odyssey, the Charlotte Hornets have finally returned.  It took a move to New Orleans, an expansion franchise, and not one but two nickname changes to make it happen.  But finally, after many years, an NBA team named the Charlotte Hornets will be playing in the Association once again. Check out this […]

ArbysBBQ

Arby’s, please stop running the King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket ad

Arby’s new sandwich, the King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket, features smoked brisket, pickles and something called Smoky Q Sauce on a King’s Hawaiian bun. Odds are you already knew this because Arby’s apparently bought every commercial slot available for what seems like weeks, if not months.

BadNameAd1

Unfortunate ad for a company with an unfortunate name

You have to feel bad for the companies out there who have the name, or go by the abbreviation of ISIS. Not too long ago, those four letters didn’t stand for much in North America, but now they represent a terror organization that has become a household name. We’ve already seen smaller companies change their […]

Q50

Feel free to drive distracted with the Infiniti Q50

New technology has allowed various car companies to roll out a wave of safety features designed to make sure you arrive at your destination safely. The idea is that the new features (blind spot detector, etc.) will work along with your normal driving skills, not replace them. Apparently someone forgot to tell Infiniti’s marketing department […]

KitKat

KitKat mocks the iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 is under fire after numerous reports claim that the phone is bending while in the owner’s pocket. Considering the phone isn’t supposed to be that flexible, or flexible at all even, this spells a major problem for Apple. Numerous companies have mocked or poked fun at Apple, but KitKat’s may have been […]

Your questions have been answered thanks to this new campaign from DIRECTV. First, here’s what it’d be like if Lowe was creepy, watched cable and enjoyed hanging […]

StateFarm

State Farm boots Rob Schneider from their ad campaign

Remember the State Farm ad with Rob Schneider we recently praised? Well, it was a pretty brief experiment as the insurance company has dropped Schneider from their marketing efforts due to his stance against vaccinations. Specifically, State Farm decided to move on without Schneider after they received a ton of criticism through social media about […]

Bradshaw

Terry Bradshaw is here to talk to you about Shingles

There are some extremely uncomfortable commercials on TV. You know the ones. They usually involve smoking, a horrifying disease, a mistake during an operation or using the word “mesh” way too often. When Terry Bradshaw comes on in a commercial, you assume it’s going to be football related. You’d be halfway right, but here Bradshaw […]

OldSpiceHotTub

Old Spice keeps rolling out dumb robot ads

You may recall that we’ve previously ripped on Old Spice and their robot ads. Usually we do the “one and done” policy when it comes to ripping on a particular campaign (OK, there are exceptions to that rule) so that we don’t belittle our readers with the same companies over and over again. Old Spice […]

Hockey is almost upon us once again and that means Canada as a whole is collectively shaking in excitement. Molson Canadian, is hoping to capitalize on that momentum by promoting their beer with the hashtag #AnythingForHockey.
