The Bud Parody

February 25, 2010

I sense a theme coming in this blog. Parodies…hmmm. Yes, let’s continue. Thanks to Designer Extraordinaire, Tim, for the find.

The Google Parody

February 18, 2010

My cynical spot was more than satisfied with this parody on Googles Superbowl commercial. Sarah’s quest for fame and riches continues to inspire! Thanks to Prostituted Thoughts for this little gem. I loved it.

The Mac Parody

February 13, 2010

If it isn’t obvious, I am a Mac. (My sweetheart is a PC….why we’re still together is another story.) Many cynical pot shots are taken at “God-Jobs”, Apple, and their success. I have many collegues who sniff in a haughty fashion about my love of all things Apple. The Mac/PC commercials with Justin and John are outstanding in their simple, witty approach while defining our personalities (unfairly at times). It was only a matter of time before this series came out. We’re all so cynical!

Follow the money

November 3, 2009

I love the surprise/interesting/unexpected ending. Here, money travels and ends up in a happy place. Found at great ads.

Please note that this sort of thing is not tolerated in Hooterville. That’s why I want to move.

Turning on a dime

October 28, 2009

When you’re a small agency, you can do that. Turn on a dime. You can jump through a hoop and make it happen without inter-office bullshit, egos, protocols or hierarchy. So today when a client called and needed to change his commercial to push bananas at 39¢ a pound, we stopped everything else and did it.  In less than 3 hours, revision uploaded to the FTP. Boom. Done. I work with such cool people.

imagesDime turning.

It’s what we do.

It feels good.

Insanely Great…Trust me.

Three new Mac/PC commercials are out and as usual, they do not disappoint.  I just think it’s brilliant work. This one is my favorite. See them all here-thanks ad gabber!

Local Commercials

October 14, 2009

Thank you adfreak, who found this. The makers of the RED HOUSE furniture spot which I posted back in May, have done a commercial for a music store in Souix City Iowa. ILoveLocalCommercials.com. Very nice, although WE make local/regional commercials and none have ever been as good as this one.

We must try harder.

I want this for my birthday!

September 29, 2009

Somebody get me a gift certificate to this place. I love BBQ! And to have my feet rubbed in the sauce, well…This reminds me of the Red House! A serious thank you to Big Dog Eat Child for this, however,  couldn’t you guys come up with a different name…it’s kinda creepy.  On the other hand, you guys need to be hired by some of the ad agencys out there who only THINK they know how to get their commercials viewed.

The dirty trick

September 22, 2009

When this commercial came on, we looked at each other and almost at the same time, said: “I don’t like that ad.”  There’s a series of them now, using children to make their point that being naive can cost you. They’re positioning themselves as the good bank, but the disgust I feel for the banker in the spot is so strong, it transcends to the advertiser. I was uncomfortable and associated that feeling with the bank.  I couldn’t even remember their name for awhile after I had seen the spot. Maybe it’s my general disdain for the banking industry. Maybe it’s just me. 

A furniture store for ALL people.

May 1, 2009

NO…we did not produce this, but damn, I wish I had. What a great addition to anyone’s demo reel. (And from High Point, North Carolina, too…the Furniture Mecca….what were they thinking?)

(Thanks to my friend Kathy (the best chick announcer ever) for bringing this to our attention)
