One of those new Coke commercials. The only way I can describe it is a bunch of hip young teensters on a rooftop in a city having an impromptu jam
session about Coke. What the Hell; do these guys really like coke THAT much!? Then they raise their glasses to the sky at the end. Did it cure your
cancer or something? What the Hell is going on here!? It's a freakin drink! What happened to the old commercials where it was like:
Person A: "Man, I'm thirsty but all I have is this stupid Pepsi"
Person B: "Oh, well here's a coke!"
Person A: "Thanks! This is much better!"
*For fat people, use diet Coke!*
Commercials piss me off...
Then there's that new Burger King commercial with those new Chicken Fries. Apparently, these Chicken Fries are just so hardcore that they
were able to inspire a Heavy Metal/punk (Almost sounding early Misfits/danzig-ish) band who belts out lyrics about these extreme fries. Like anybody
who moshes, dies their hair, or has a rebel spirit inside of them should be buying these fries. Then at the end, he screams out "One Nation Under
Chicken Friiiieeesss!!!", as if we need MORE fast food in our diet... Does this piss anybody else off?
The third and last at the moment (Ok, not really 100) is the type of commercial where they try to use clever/witty/awkward situations involving
"average everyday people" doing "average everyday things". A good example is that (Carls Junior?) commercials, where there are three people
sitting at a table. The first guy says something to the effect of "Mmm, this is a good burger... It's scrunchy". The girl then says "Scruncy?"
He explains that he's mixed together 3 words (I can't remember which ones) to create this new and hilarious word. The other two try their shots at
new words involving the three he used, and hilarity inevitably ensues.
There's something about these commercials that just pisses me off. Some of the people reading this might think "Is there any way the marketing
people coming up with these commercials can win with you?" ...Probably not, but quit attempting to exploit every aspect of our society by using it
in your stupid commercials!
