Good, Bad and Ugly Ads

Since I have not been given much of a life, I watch an awful lot of television, which includes an awful lot of commercials.  Now, a “GOOD” ad is one that holds my attention and makes me want to at least learn more about the product or service it is for.  A “BAD” ad is one that quickly becomes nothing more than background noise when it cannot be skipped over.  “UGLY” ads are much worse.  For not only do they make we want to never see them again, they make me want to never have anything to do with the company that paid for them to be produced.  Of course, you may feel differently, but I sure wouldn’t say much about it around anyone with a lick of sense.  For I am, after all, an expert on such things—albeit only in my own mind!

  1. I love those ads for etrade with the babies but my husband won't stop fast forwarding so I can see them. The other 2 are neither bad nor ugly - they are focused on giving hard information in 30 seconds - talking heads - not really obnoxious or anything - but not cute either.

  2. Thanks for stopping by here, my dear Grace!!! Be assured that I will want to go with eTrade just on account of their wonderful commercials, which is what a good advertisement is supposed to accomplish. That is, if we ever get in a position to where we could trade stocks, of course. I couldn't find the right eSignal commercial for the "Bad" one, which made it harder to see that the "Ugly" one is trying to trash their platform.

  3. Thanks for stopping by here, my dear Ann!!! That "I'm speed-dating!" line cracks me up every time.

  4. lol at the first ad. I don't watch a lot of commercials.

  5. Thanks for stopping by here, my dear Lynda!!! Be assured that I wish we were able to get out and about more.
