Commercials

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Walmart is now running an ad using Blondie's "One Way or Another." It's a somewhat creepy stalker song, that includes the following lyrics:

I will drive past your house and if the lights are all down
I'll see who's around
One way or another, I'm gonna find ya'
I'm gonna get ya', get ya', get ya', get ya'

OMG, the Volkswagon commercial they just showed on the NCAA basketball show.

If you're in the market for a "pre-owned" VW, you might want to ask yourself, "Has this car been fucked in?"

I don't think it's a good selling point.

The American Family insurance commercial where the guy is busking.

Apparently AFI thought the guy's version of "Lovely day" was not good enough so they sent in some "help" - a woman with a huge voice that just steps in and takes over.

All the while the guy has WTF? all over him.

I don't get it.

I haven't seen this one. I'll look for it. Actually, I shouldn't say that I haven't seen it. Now, when a commercial comes on, everyone in the room picks up the Smartphone. It's borderline comical. Good luck, dumbass TV advertisers. No one under 60 is actually watching your ad. Good for hearing aids and Viagra. Sucks to be anyone else.
