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. If it weren't for holidays what would the commercial people do anyway? Imagine if they lost that empire! Yikes!!!!

  2. Another one that belongs here would be the K-Mart commercial

  3. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Karen!!! Yeah, there is lots of money to be made by a lot of people when it comes time for holidays, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but...

  4. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! Oh, I'll have to go see if I can find that one for next year!

  5. Oh I love those Cadbury's Eggs...but it should be pronounced "Cad-BUR-ees", not "Cad-BERRIES".
    Just saying.

  6. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Kay!!! Oh my, so do I, but we had quite a lot of trouble with boxes of them that my wife would buy at the store being empty. You can imagine my shock and dismay when I would dive into a grocery sack to find empty boxes of Cadbury eggs, and when my dariling would see how upset I was, she would head right back to the store--only to come back with more empty boxes!


    The above are my favourite TV ads here at the moment. They make me laugh every time I see them.

  8. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Lee!!! Oh yeah, both of those went on the list. I especially loved the one about his daughter's painting.
