Advertisers take note
Posted on Monday, March 3 2008 @ 00:29:28 Eastern
I'm not sure what company this is directed at, because I usually change the channel when this commercial comes on.
ANY rehashing of the song Mambo 5 is annoying as hell. It was not a good song then, it is not a good song now, no matter how much you change the lyrics.
Again, I don't know whose commercial it is - but it rivals those stupid Rogers cellphone ads that obviously have stupid college kids as their target audience. As a stupid college kid, I take offense to how my people are being portrayed.
What's gone on with commercials? Aside from Coast Capital Savings and JC Petit, commercials suck now. They're too politically correct. Where are the stereotypes we came to love with 'My Name Is Joe', the black Budweiser 'WASSSAAAAAAP' guys or the always great French Canadien Goalie.
Take note - no matter how much money goes into market research, the commercials that are coming out aren't funny. Commercials are meant to be an entertaining interlude to a New Jersey Devils game.
No more Mambo 5. No more lame focus groups. No more facebook references in commercials. No more political correctness.
