If you're going to make a spoof, at last try to make it funny. This one from Landline is lame. In act, it's beyond lame. And it's embarrassing. These guys can do much, much better. We've seen it. This is just beyond bad. The Jimmy Kimmel spoof makes this one look like the work of a kindergartner.
And this one from Someecards is equaly as bad.
Oh lets just come right out and say it, Effen. There's nothing more satisfying than fucking on a plane. Nothing warms me up like fucking by the fire. Everyone enjoys fucking in the penthouse.
But, hmm. The literal approach kinda ruins your attempt at witticism, right?
It would make your new Euro RSCG Chicago-created "Provocatively Premium" campaign "Perfunctorily Prosaic," right?
So go with the wit. Have fun with your wordplay. We'll pretend to enjoy the wink and the nod. And then we'll go hang with the fembots and drink Svedka.
If this campaign from TBWA\Vancouver is to be believed, we are headed for disaster. We don't go outside. We play games but not sports. We east fast and together less. We let our kids online and don't let them walk to school. We listen to our headphones and not to each other.
Well, the YMCA want to to get off your ass, go outside, stop playing video games, eat right and get the hell off the internet.
Who knew cooking could be so entertaining? So dramatic? So...American Idol-ish? And who knew a live, dancing chicken would find pleasure in being microwaved to death? In a macabre mix of humor and frog-in-the-microwave prankishness, Samgsung wants us to know its OmniPro delivers effortless cooking with delicious results.
Disclaimer: No actual live chickens were microwaved to death in the creatio of this commercial.
Antonio Banderas? He still has a career? We thought he went the way of Fabio. Hmm. It seems there is life after a mediocre Hollywood career. And that life is usually to become the spokesperson of some brand we've never heard of.
But it all makes sense. Because the hotel we've never heard of is in Mexico. And we don't live in Mexico. And, apparently, Banderas is still big in Mexico. So we guess it's all good.
The man will front the Iberostar Hotels & Resorts marketing campaign for the next three years. Developed by the Mrs. Rushmore Agency, the campaign will focus on the concept, "On Vacation Everyone is a Star."
That's kind of funny.

In a pro-abstinence PSA for Candie's Bristol Palin wonders what teen pregnancy would be like if she didn't come from a famous family, have all their support or have a lot of opportunities, In the end, she say, "It wouldn't be pretty." Which is a bit of a mixed message.
It's as if she's saying teen pregnancy is OK if you are famous, have support and opportunity. But if your an average person with limited resources and not much of a future, it would be very wise to "pause before you play."
Which is it, Bristol?
Last night, ESPN and The Golf Channel aired a new Nike commercial featuring Tiger Woods...and his dead father. The black and white commercial with Woods in Nike garb staring motionless into the camera is voiced by his late father, Earl Woods, who says, "Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. Did you learn anything?"
Of the commercial and Woods, himself, Nike said in a statement, "We support Tiger and his family. As he returns to competitive golf, the ad addresses his time away from the game using the powerful words of his father."
