What a logo says about a company...

Ever read Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions?

Ever seen Wal-Mart's new logo?

Am I the only one laughing here?

The non-football football commercial

I'm not much of one for video games, but this one caught my eye during the SC/Ole Miss game.

Probably because I like fast cars, but this looks fun. And humorous, in that sick video game kind of way.

Turn it up!

Are you ready for a sucky football commercial?

Hmmmm. Advertising that makes fun of advertising.

This commercial is every bit as loud and irritating as an infomercial-- without any of the humor.

And what a surprise! It's from our friends at Bud Light.

I dunno, maybe underage college kids think this is funny. But not until they've slammed a couple of BL's!

Are you ready for some football commercials?

The season is upon us, and there are already a slew of good ones and bad ones. Kind of like the games themselves...

A good one: this series of spots for ESPN's Monday Night Football. They're funny and give us all a reason to look forward to Monday after the weekend. Like "The most interesting man in the world" commercials, they're even better as a series.

You can see more on youtube at links like this one:

Bite me!

Hey kids, you can go on E-Bay and bid on a dinner (for five) with Sarah Palin!

OMG! I think I just threw up in my mouth!

Starbucks, please...

If you've run out of things to tell us about your coffee, perhaps you should just stop advertising.

This Bud goes to all the underage drinkers out there!

Seen the new Bud Light "Fans Cans?" It's the usual swill you swill, but packaged in the colors of nearby universities.

Clever marketing ploy? Most likely, and just in time for tailgate season.

Heavy-handed attempt to promote underage drinking? Most definitely. The legal drinking age in most states is 21--a bit older than the average college student.

I mean, come on! Who are we fooling here? Nobody.

Save it for the NFL teams, at the very least.
