This Commercial Sucks: Chevy Colorado’s Focus Group

These have been out for about a month, but I’ve just seen them in the last few days. So we have a focus group setup, with participants being asked about two men: one standing in front of a sedan, and one standing in front of a truck. What results is awful, stereotypical stuff.

Kids’ Bathroom Habits Necessitate Clorox

If you’ve ever been a male, you’ve tried long-range pissing. Mopping with toilet water just seems rational…it’s a big bucket of water sitting right there. And sometimes “situations” happen with pesky belt buckles. These Clorox ads are funny, simple, and true-to-life.

“Emily’s Oz” From Comcast/Xfinity Is Stunning

“Emily’s Oz” is a big hit after debuting on the Oscars tonight. And for good reason. The story of 7-year-old Emily, who was born blind and describes what she “sees” during The Wizard of Oz is interesting and visually enchanting. Robert Redford provides the closing voiceover.

That BMW Commercial With The Leather-Wearing Grandma

This old lady is what BMW calls a “back-backseat driver.” And it’s got one of the funniest commercial lines I’ve heard in a long time: “Your grandfather loved it when I wore leather. He was a very dominant man.”

This Is SportsCenter: Katy Perry’s Sharks Revealed!

Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame prediction certainly seems to ring true in this age of social media. We have figures like the sharks in Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime performance, who blew up Twitter, especially Left Shark. And now in Wieden+Kennedy New York’s long-running and always funny “This Is SportsCenter” campaign, we find out the surprising identities of these sharks.

Android’s “Friends Furever” Is Adorable

OK, so it doesn’t really have anything to do with Android. But with different species of animals playing with each other, how could this spot go wrong? Very cute work by Droga5.
