The Rhythm Of McDonald’s

McDonald’s is dirt cheap and a 5 minute walk from my house, which is usually why I go there. But are they trying attract hipsters with this commercial?

I don’t really think McDonald’s will be a hipster hangout, despite the success of other cheap American classics like PBR. Though I did learn something new from this ad. I thought the “rhythm” dude was just some random schmuck when in fact he’s “MysteryGuitarMan” and has one of the most popular channels on YouTube. He’s got his own page on Wikipedia too, so he’s legit. The more you know, guys.

State Farm Might Cause Interesting Purchases And Marital Discord

This commercial is one of the few where you’ll hear the word “ergo”, so it deserves to be mentioned for that singular reason. That guy really looks like the type who’d buy a falcon, doesn’t he? It’s also funny watching all the other people walking down the street with their new items. My favorites are the “shoulda/coulda got a falcon” guys, the Model T-esque mini car guy, and the giant gumball machine guy. Come to think of it, everybody with new swag looks to be male. I’m sure that will cause NOW to butt in somehow.

Haha, you think the guy is having an affair. But he isn’t! He’s talking to his State Farm agent at 3 AM! The wife thinks she sounds hideous because he’s a guy! If I was the wife, after I figure out he’s not sleeping with another woman OR a man, I’d be worried about why he’s calling State Farm at 3 AM. Money problems, much? And a graveyard shift State Farm agent sounds like the most depressing job ever.

All and all though, two strong spots from State Farm. I laughed.

This Should Clean Up At The Razzies

God, this looks even worse than Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

Coors Light Presents The World’s Easiest Bar Exam

The video quality is crap, but this was the best I could find. So sue me.

I’m not in law school, but I hear the bar exam is more complicated than that. You probably shouldn’t be a lawyer if you can’t tell when beer is cold. Besides, who wants beer to be that “super cold”? Would give me a brain freeze.

And here’s the version that’s airing more often now. The one with the girlfriend, the missed date, and the guy with the world’s biggest shit-eating grin.

Did Frankie Muniz Travel Back In Time For This Verizon Commercial?

I’m somewhat notorious for thinking people look alike when nobody else does but…

this kid looks JUST like Frankie Muniz. Right? Somebody back me up, please? YouTube comments say his name is Tyler Steelman and he was on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”. Whatever though, he still looks like Frankie to me. I should also add that this commercial annoys the hell out of me, and the YouTube screengrab on this page amuses me.
