Football and the Commercial Connection
I don't get why the commercials had to be subdued because the economy is tanking. I think they should have been the most outrageous or courageous because the economy is dreary. I definitely have a crush on the baby e-trader, though. He's my kind of guy. Throwing up all the time on the keyboard and all. And this must really be a sign that I'm old as dirt, because I am very bored and tired of the Budweiser/Horse commercials. In fact, anything with a polar bear, a horse, a Dalmatian or lizard type of animal should not be placed in any commercials this year.
"Okay, Beth", you say, "then what would be good in this dismal year for commercials"? Well, I like that fast photography like they have in the Planet Earth series and I bet not a lot of people have seen a tree going from green leaves, that turn a brilliant orange color, to falling down to the ground in 15 seconds. That would be cool.
Commercials that show people laughing for no apparent reason for a solid 30 seconds would work for me. The company could shoot their name across the screen at the end with a happy face symbol at the end.
Of course, I would never turn down a commercial with male models involved (just to make up for all the commercials with the lovely ladies). And they don't even have to catch chips in their mouth or take a shower. Maybe it's just a rugby practice.
Okay guys, what commercials do you want to see? Name a commercial that will make you feel better in this most awful of economic situations? The sky's the limit.......................................
