The Bad Ads

leave a comment »

While the pile of garbage this year is smaller than last year, we couldn’t escape some terrible excuses for ads.

Doritos should be ashamed. In their three years of serious Super Bowl advertising, their one good commercial came this year, involving the use of Dorito crumbs as a reviver. Otherwise, their ads are mean, painful to watch, and sometimes revolting (i.e. licking Dorito dust off another person’s finger/pants).

Snickers, E*Trade, and CareerBuilder.com have had some winning spots over the past few years, but this year saw a return of the talking baby, monkey bosses, and obscure celebrities behaving badly due to hunger. It doesn’t work more than once.

What happened to Coke and Pepsi? Coke went twice for the cuteness factor, only to come off as boring despite vivid colors and decent premises. Pepsi’s bits were stereotyping both men and women, and none of their commercials were clever.
