Bust a Nut!

4 04 2008

No, this isn’t that kind of post. But after you listen to this radio commercial, you might think so. A few years back, there was a radio ad for Corn Nuts that played on the airwaves, but was pulled after just a few weeks. I can’t imagine why they’d pull an ad about Corn Nuts… Can you figure it out?

Oh! That’s why it got pulled!


Who Cut The Cheese?

Remember this year’s Super Bowl? The one where the Giants did the impossible and put a stop to the undefeated hopes and dreams of the Patriots? I do… but that’s not what I remember the most. While I am a football fan (Jets fan, but I respect what the Giants accomplished), I remember that the Super Bowl commercials were kind of bland this year. Lucky for me, I just ran across a Bud Light advertisement that was ‘apparently’ deemed inappropriate for airing during the Super Bowl. If you enjoy a bit of toilet humor, then you’ll love this commercial. Ready? Set? Laugh!

Does pulling your finger help you cut the cheese?

Tay Zonday + YouTube = Dr. Pepper

29 11 2007

Many of you have see the video recorded for Tay Zonday’s “Chocolate Rain”. Tay now has a music video that was created to promote a new Dr. Pepper drink, that features a remixed version of that song called “Cherry Chocolate Rain”. Before you watch, are you thinking “Wow, Tay sold out!”? Personally, I think Tay is deserving of the opportunity to have a sponsored video recorded. It’s because of the YouTube phenomenon that he even has the opportunity. On the note of the video, it’s pretty cheesy, and the lyrics are obviously messed around with to promote the product. There’s even a little rap going on. It’s pretty crazy, but still great to see for Tay. Sellout or not, Enjoy!

Was that chocolate? or…

Photo Time: Really?

Consolidated Edison is New York City’s electricity provider, and has been for many years. They’re also known for ‘to-the-point’ advertising, with campaigns like their recent “On It” posters and banners. Recently, on the subway, I ran across a new brand of Con Ed advertisements. The current advertising campaigns include tips on how to save money off of your electric bill (despite Con Ed raising their rates because they started to use a new paper size for the bills… yeah… I know). While I was looking at all of the advertisements, I came across this little section of a banner:

Con Ed

Let’s break this down, shall we?

– If you lose power, you can call the phone number above from your cell phone, and your land line. But, if you have an internet phone without the land line (don’t laugh, some people are in that scenario), you’re pretty much screwed. You’ll have to borrow someone’s cell phone, or call Con Ed from work, right? That’s lame.

– If you lose power, you can log on to the website above… no, wait… you can’t! Why? Because you have no power! Way to go, Con Ed!

So what do you think about that advertisement? You know what I think? I think all of this electric nonsense makes me hungry for some Zen. It’s not Con Ed, but let’s give it up to the Electric Company!

They will NOT be bringing you the power!
