Exactly WHY are we advertising?

Let me see. You're a monopoly selling an "invisible" product to consumers who have no alternative.

There is no news, no information, and no announcement in this commercial.

Why then, are you making TV spots??

Perhaps this is God's way of telling us you have too much (of our) money.

Otherwise, it's a cute idea...

Please God, make it stop. Make. It. Stop!

Watch any football this weekend?

Ready to throw a brick through your television?

If this keeps up, I'm gonna start rooting for Microsoft...

Cool-as-shit car.

Lame-as-shit concept.

With uninspiring music. And annoying in that special way that only MB commercials can be.

I've got a "universal gesture" for you...

Ray Lewis keeps not being funny.

Why, baby, why? Do you need the money at this point?

Kindle vs. iPad

Wow. You get the feeling that Jeff "Bozo" Bezos of Amazon wrote, directed and produced this incredibly insipid commercial for the Kindle.

But it does create questions: who lays out at the pool with a white T-shirt on? Why doesn't he just go sit in the shade? And did she buy her overpriced sunglasses on Amazon?

Don't think Apple has much to worry about with this stinker.

Mac Attack

A new TV spot from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine goes for the shocker ad attacking the fast food industry, namely, you know who.

But bad acting, extremely lame music and questionable production values make this one a loser. In other words, I believe this Unhappy Meal will have zero effect on anyone.

With the possible exception of lawyers.

Uh-oh. Here come the dumb-ass football commercials.

The season has officially started and here's our second loser of the week. Old Spice, no doubt trying to recapture the glory of Shower Man, trips in the backfield with Ray Lewis doing a bunch of odd things for no particular reason.

Lame. Sad. A big waste of money. And further proof that Axe does "wacky" consistently good, while Old Spice is a one-hit wonder.

At this rate, it's gonna be a long season.

Coors Light commercial, anyone?

"Mayhem" quickly losing its edge.

Sorry, to keep posting about the AllState campaign, but this latest commercial doesn't really cut it. Too convoluted a premise. Not particularly funny, evil, or memorable.

Love the idea of a football tie-in, but they missed an opportunity here.

Wide right.
