Between the “cookie air diet” and the “baby food diet,” there should be plenty here to make you laugh. Great job by the people behind Great Grains cereal.


Hornitos Tequila Ad

I saw this ad on tv and I thought it was not only funny, but it made a great point about consumers and brands. How many times have you heard people ask for a Kleenex, when they actually just wanted a facial tissue. How many times will someone ask, “what kind of cokes do you have?”

Whether it’s laundry detergent, paper towels, gasoline, or hand soap, there are times you might look for something, or ask for something, and not really care which brand you get.¬†This Hornitos ad does a pretty good job of elaborating on that point. Watch it and let us know what you think.


Very Funny Samsung Galaxy Ad

This commercial for the Samsung Galaxy is currently one of my favorites on tv. It’s simple and funny. There are several elements, or scenes, throughout the short ad that we can all relate to. ¬†Pretty much every family has the character that wants to dress up and be Santa. I was particularly fond of the line, “I landed on my keys”, followed by a visibly wounded, slowed Santa handing out gifts. Kudos to the team that made this ad: The setting is simple, the technology is self explanatory and the Santa is hilarious.

Let us know what you think.

E-trade has done it again. This time, the e-trade baby shows his “shocked face” to an adult who does not get rich winning the lottery with his scratch-off card. This is funny beyond words.


E-Trade Baby Ad: Girlfriend and Lindsay

My favorite commercial of the Super Bowl. There are so many clever catches (no pun intended) in this E-trade baby ad. The whole “wolf” and “wolf style” with the howl, the girlfriends straight face trying to figure out this guy, and the milkaholic line, the denial, and then the verdict as Lindsay shows up. Absolutely brilliant.
