Hey, South Africa, uhm… let’s work on this. Read the rest of this entry
Skeletor has got to be the most unlikely of spokesmen, but there his is, shilling for Honda. If you needed any more proof that people my age have taken control of a large segment of society, I submit to you He-Man and Battlecat in the rear view cam screen. Read the rest of this entry
GAP’s new “Gauntlet” ad reminds us holidays are terrible because we have to spend them with our family
This new GAP ad entitled “Gauntlet” features a young lady making the introductory rounds at a family gathering. Considering this ad just launched, it’s a safe bet that this is targeted to the 2014 holiday season… and it might sorta be the best ad ever. Read the rest of this entry
I know it’s October and Halloween is on everyone’s mind, but jeez, Nissan – pump the proverbial breaks, would ya? Read the rest of this entry
Today exciting episode of truth in advertising:
The site’s ad vender is experimenting with these image ads that pop up on top of images. In this case, it’s put this blond woman’s head in my mouth. Worse things have happened to me in my life, but this situation is far from ideal. Still, it’s kinda funny looking, though.
What year do these junk snail mail senders think it is – 2001? You can’t just pick a font that looks like handwriting and expect to fool anyone. It’s junk mail – I can tell it’s not real handwriting. Also, I don’t know anyone in Columbia, Maryland, and it’s not currently some bygone error when long distance calling was impossible or expensive, so no one I don’t know is going to try to contact me this way… I appreciate they don’t want to put their company name on the outside of the envelope because if they did, I’d be less likely to open it, but… let’s stop this game. You’re just wasting paper. I recycle it, and it’s nice that the Post Office gets some business, but… yeesh. Get with the times and just blast me with spam email like everyone else!
What can you say about a cat scratching post called Pulp Friction? It’s awesome, that’s what! We’ve bot something of a cat theme going this week… hm. It’s probably not going anywhere – unless I get an unbelievable burst of energy and actually edit that cat video I shot several months ago… Stranger things have happened. Anyway, good job, Marketing Team – Pulp Friction is the best name for a product ever. Samuel L. Jackson would be proud.
I like YouTube – sometimes it giveth, sometimes it taketh away. I’d say today’s entry of It Came From YouTube is a good example of both.
This is exactly the sort of stuff that makes YouTube great – well produced niche content that’s a ton of fun. YouTuber FamilyJules7X clearly has the skills, passion and chops to crank out metal inspired covers from such classic video games as Tetris, Zelda, Super Mario Brothers and several others. This is my jam jar.
And then there’s this.
Photoshopping models is nothing new, but it’s something that’s outside of my experience. I’ve heard about it in the news, but I kinda live in a model free world as I don’t read magazines or observe the sort of still images where the said photoshopped models images exist. That all changed after my How to Buy Eyeglasses post.

So does Mila Kunis work at the Jim Bean plant now?
I presume the reason Mila Kunis is doing Jim Bean commercials is that they dumped a big pile of money on her front lawn, but maybe she likes the product, too… I dunno. There’s another spot where she’s walking around the bourbon barrel storage area and there’s all these sleeping bears, because bears like honey and now they’re putting honey in some of their bourbon, and bourbon needs to age before you drink it, and bears hibernate… synergy!
