Ty Burrell Skewers Perfume Commercials in the Gain Laundry Detergent Spot »

Brilliant spoof. This spot with Ty Burrell from Modern Family has attracted 15 million views & counting. It immediately reminds me of the “I can’t believe they pay me for this stuff” Chanel No 5 commercial featuring Brad Pitt or the “seriously, people?” Matthew McConaughey commercial for Dolce & Gabbana. Brilliant, no? Have you seen […]

Is admitting DEFEAT a good MARKETING strategy? »

Sure looks that way. In this TV commercial, the setting is a fall fair competition where Classico pasta sauce LOSES to the homemade sauce of these Italian grandmas and the Classico chefs are smiling anyway–all the way to the bank.

Does Using HUMOR in Business Make You Look UNPROFESSIONAL? »

I know we use LOL every day, but this irreverent attack Verizon TV commercial actually DID make me laugh out loud. Saw this on T.V. so I didn’t know until I looked it up online to share it with you that it was a shot at Sprint (headquartered are in Kansas City), but I did […]

Which of these 2 guys has the STRONGER BRAND? »

The point of the 30 second commercial below is to encourage consumers to make sure that they are not FOOLED by professional appearances. And it’s a good point and a brilliant commercial. The intended audience of this commercial is the public. Buyer beware. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Again, good point. But what […]
