Hardee's does it again.

No one has more politically incorrect fun than Hardee's. Note to Juke advertisers: here's how you do it without being creepy.

The best part? I'm pretty damn sure the entire male population now knows Hardee's has a Turkey Burger. And that, my friends, IS their target audience.

Just shy of brilliant...

Lame & Taylor

Normally, I'd be impressed with anyone in the fashion world who tried to have a concept in their advertising. Most don't even bother.

But this series for department chain Lord & Taylor is sad, mostly because the line "Oh My Lord & Taylor" sounds like something created by a first-year copywriter.

Still, if they had taken an outrageous photo
(think Diesel) to go with it, they might have something.

But they didn't. And they don't.

Advertising that makes fun of advertising

always sucks.

Doubly so here, because unlike the Apple spots, these aren't even funny.

Forced. Contrived. Sad, really.

The trouble with success

is that agencies keep trying to repeat it.
