Bad Ads II

After coming in late on the Sean Payton showing up his mentor, Bill Parcels, I get the Nissan truck ad twice in the same commercial break. You might have seen it, the TV screen is supposed to represent your TV screen. Two guys fast-forward a Tivo through a Canadian Football game and one says, "this is boring, let me get to the good part."

The other guy goes, "yeah, there it is!" The truck charges and sloshes through mud while big letters extoll its performance. Cue Black Sabbath-

"I-am-Iron Man!"

Patrick Crayton doesn't run his route in the redzone and Grammatica kicks a field goal. Then NBC runs the damn ad twice in the same ad break again!

Ad: I-am-
Me: -mute button!

Haahnster,

Don't you get the impression that they're not even trying?

I would almost hope not. If that's the result of real effort, it almost makes it worse.

If it's the only thing that Nancy Reagan and I agree on, it's just say "no" to writing commercials on drugs.

Angela,

Neither do I and it doesn't do anything in terms of the truck's credibility.

We're the truck favored by nutjobs who love to watch nothing but commercials!
