Modern-Day Frida Wins Hearts with Eau de Peanut


Planter's Super Bowl ad this year featured a dowdy chick with one eyebrow, felling men left and right with peanut perfume.

Weird. But not as weird as that one ad where a person in a mouse suit kicks somebody's ass for Dorito's ... to the theme song from Carmen. Very The Shining (though we're not sure why we feel that way).

I loved this ad. The girl was played by Christa Woomer, I've seen her in several plays in LA and she is hysterical. I'm also a huge fan of Bryan Buckley's work and I think he did a great job on this ad. Kudos!

I thought this ad was complete shite. Men get boners for ugly chicks that rub nuts on themselves? The idea is beyond bad, and i think buckley directed his worst spot ever. why the shitty 70's look."Gwen" must work for planters.
