The Stupidity of Advertising

"Honestly, I cannot remember a worse commercial in the last couple of years than the Dr. Scholls commercial they have put into heavy rotation. First of all, some products just don�t really need commercial advertisement like that; I think I could have a dollar for everyone who would see that commercial and then think �well damn, I gotta get me some of those� and I might be able to get a decent meal from a vending machine."

That's what Hosemonster thinks about the new Dr. Scholls commercial and he is right. So many ads are just plain stupid in their attempt to portray certain aspects of life as actually exciting and cool. Face it, foot pads are not exciting. No one cares.

Sorry I can't link directly to his post. Link is broken.

Ad Age's Bob Garfield on Cannes

Bob Garfield makes his predictions for this year's Cannes Grand Prix winners. The two top contenders? Saturn's "Sheet Metal" spot and Honda's "Cog" spot.

While "Cog" is cool, I vote for "Sheet Metal" because it is more humanistic in it's portrayal of the relationship between person and product.
