Okay, so I've mentioned the Super Bowl ads that really gave me a chuckle, and those were great, but there were a few groaners and more than I really expected that were stupid or offensive or just plain bad. And that's no good. If you're spending that kind of dough on thirty seconds of national ad space, you might want to make sure you're not actively offending people, Salesgenie.
The worst offenders:
No, for serious, are we actually doing this? Really, Salesgenie? Really? We're doing pandas with broken English and broad, exaggerated, Star-Wars-prequels quality fake Chinese accents? And then eating the furniture? This is really how we're promoting our business, Salesgenie?
Ha, ha, foreigners are funny! Hee! And Carlos Mencia is for reals funny. Heh. Budweiser hit it out of the park with just about every other ad they ran during the Super Bowl (see Will Ferrell as Jackie Moon and the Bud Light cavemen), but this one just struck me as a real boner. So to speak.
Yeah, I know it's Naomi Campbell. Yeah, I know they're doing the "Thriller" dance. I still don't get it.
Again, I find myself just not getting it. I mean, "Click Clack" and the whole thing about protecting this house were kind of obscure, but this "the future is ours" thing just strikes me as kind of, I don't know, dumb? Is that the word? Dumb? We'll go with that one.
So that's it for the best and worst of the Super Bowl ads. I guess that takes care of--what? Game? You mean all those guys in tight pants running around between the ads? Was that---oh. Right. Yeah, that was, like, okay, I guess. Whatever.
It was no ferocious badgers Corolla ad, anyway.
