Awful Classics: 1980′s Coors Light commercial

Coors Light commercials weren't always about a speeding silver bullet train randomly bursting through city landscapes. Instead, commercials focused on relationships and encounters in the local tavern. The bartender was your friend and everyone bonded over Coors Light. http://youtube.com/watch?v=K-vbr2_GI_M?rel=0 Talk about your slice of '80s nostalgia. It's also worth pointing out the completely different marketing […]

Kmart’s holiday sequel to Ship My Pants

Kmart's ads are almost bipolar. We've praised the Ship My Pants, Big Gas Savings and Yo Mama commercials, but then we've been forced to ridicule the store's bizarre and completely humorless holiday GIF commercials.  After their spectacular holiday flop, Kmart decided to call on and old, yet successful strategy: Shipping pants. This time they added a Christmas […]

SpaghettiOs Tweets about Pearl Harbor and it doesn’t go well

SpaghettiOs tried a bit of real-time marketing on December 6th in honor of the anniversary of Pearl Harbor on December 7th. The brand Tweeted out a message of remembrance with a photo of a SpaghettiO holding an American flag. On paper, this probably sounded like a good idea. In practice, this was an epic failure.  […]

Which brands will advertise during Super Bowl XLVIII?

Fox has officially sold all of their in-game advertising time for Super Bowl XLVIII. Commercials were expected to cost roughly $3.8 million for just 30 seconds of time.

KmartGrandma

Kmart’s annoying repeating grandma

We've given Kmart a lot of praise over the last several months. With commercials based around "yo mamma" jokes and pronunciation humor, we believed the retailer had raised the bar for traditionally boring, humorless commercials from big-box stores.  That belief has been shattered. Kmart rolled out this…thing…which depicts a grandma acting crazy. In reality, it's […]

CatLitter

We want to toss Tidy Cats’ litter commercial out

Tidy Cats created a new lightweight cat litter. It's actually a pretty brilliant idea considering how bulky and heavy a container of cat litter can be, but unfortunately the marketing around the new product isn't as intelligent.  "Hey! Toss me that litter." The previous sentence is the heart and soul behind a commercial which is […]

Nissan has a clever print ad to support the CFL

Nissan is a proud sponsor of the Canadian Football League. How do they elect to show their pride, you ask? By creating a rather clever print ad which illustrates how things are a little bit … different … in the CFL. Let's just say the Gatorade showers are a bit more painful in the CFL.  […]
