Is Audi’s ad with Christopher Reeve in good taste?

A new campaign from Audi in the U.K. has the advertising world buzzing. The ad features Christopher Reeve dressed as Clark Kent alongside a tagline of "Power from a less obvious place." The print ad has been met with mixed reviews. Some appreciate the homage to Reeve, while others feel it's in bad taste to […]

Johnny Manziel mocked by Oklahoma car dealership If there's anyone who should understand the seedy world of autograph peddlers looking to make a buck off the autographs of college kids it's local car dealers.  So leave it to Fowler Toyota of Norman, Oklahoma to mock Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel with this "Johnny Savings" commercial.  I'm just not sure what the […]

Modern milk commercials are kind of strange

Got milk? Milk commercials used to be simple. Remember the days when a milk mustache on a celebrity or an athlete was enough? Now milk commercials have taken on an entirely new shape and form - one which might be terrifying if the photo above is any sort of indication. Milk is trying to get […]

The ridiculous Super Soft Cooler commercial Meet the Super Soft Cooler. It's soft. It floats. You can hit it repeatedly if that's what you're into.  The commercial - which resembles an infomercial more than it does an actual commercial - looks like it's straight out of a different decade. Incredibly, I saw it just last week on G4 (soon to […]

Awful Classics: Zack the LEGO Maniac

Once upon a time the good folks at LEGO decided they needed a mascot. A giant talking brick, perhaps? No, just a kid that really loves LEGO. Cue the LEGO Maniac, otherwise known as Zack the LEGO Maniac. For a stretch of time in the '80s and '90s, Zack the LEGO Maniac was the ultimate […]

Fifth Third Bank’s identity theft commercial is creeptastic Leo Burnett's "Photo Booth" commercial for Fifth Third Bank's identify theft protection is equal parts creepy and perfection. You don't see the creepiness coming, which I suppose is the point. Identity theft happens when you're not paying attention. Instead of using cheesy dialogue or exaggerated scare tactics, Burnett gives us just the right combination […]

Subway ad from the UK has some dry humor This Subway ad from the UK features Janet, a rather unexceptional redhead who rarely has things go her way. From booking hotels to dating, Janet never quite gets what she's hoping for. That is, until she goes to Subway where she can get exactly what she wants.  Got all that? Sounds like a pretty […]

DICK’S football commercial is a cinematic masterpiece Back in March we praised DICK'S for their baseball commercial which felt more like a movie than an actual commercial. We're back talking about DICK'S again (that'll never sound correct) and we love their football commercial which was shot in the same style as the baseball commercial from this spring.  The commercial spins us […]

Colin Kaepernick’s tattoos star in Yahoo fantasy football spot

Last NFL season, one of the silliest manufactured controversies in sports occurred when David Whitley of the Sporting News wrote a column criticizing San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick for his tattoos.  The notion that Kaepernick couldn't be trusted because he didn't look like Sammy Baugh proved to be even more absurd when CK7 led […]

The world's largest restaurant brand (seriously - they have 39,700+ locations) has named Pele as their new Global Brand Ambassador. The legendary Brazilian soccer star will appear in advertisements as well as various promotions for the company.  Subway finally addresses soccer with their […]

HelloFlo and the tampon ad everyone is talking about If you're a woman, you know that the arrival of Aunt Flo each month is met with one of three emotions: elation when it finally happens for the first time (I'm a WOMAN), relief in some scarier instances, but mostly it is just met with downright disdain.  However, for the girls experiencing it for […]
