Dilly Dilly! Check Out Bud Light’s Pit Of Misery

Bud Light’s “Banquet” commercial has been an extremely popular one for the last few months that I for some reason didn’t write about on here. In particular, the repeated and silly “Dilly Dilly!” quote became a memetic catchphrase. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger even used a “Dilly Dilly!” cadence in last week’s blowout win over the Tennessee Titans. So, responding to the ad’s popularity, Bud Light has made a followup spot. We see Greg making the Pit of Misery somewhat less miserable by bringing back some Bud Light? Is it dumb that he escaped the Pit of Misery, only to return to give Bud Light to his fellow miserables? Probably, but whatever. Dilly dilly! Here’s more from Adweek.


Halo Pet Food Introduces Poopsie

This one’s been out for two months, and I’m not sure how I missed it. The song about Poopsie, the happiest little poop from pets who eat Halo, is so damn catchy.

Tuesday Throwback: Extra Gum’s Story Of Sarah & Juan

This past weekend, I went to a wedding where the couple used Haley Reinhart’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” as their first dance song. The song came to prominence from its usage in Extra Gum’s mega-viral 2015 spot “The Story of Sarah & Juan.” It was a romantic tearjerker that was also interesting in the fact that it told a story not even about the product, but a creative use of the packaging. So let’s take a look back at this lovely ad from Extra.



Geico: Randy Jackson Judging A Dog Show Is Surprising, Dawg

Former American Idol judge was famous for calling contestants “dawg.” But what happens when he judges an actual dog show? After watching Geico’s newest spot from the “It’s Not Surprising” campaign, I actually was surprised…surprised that they didn’t make this ad sooner.


The Macy’s Lighthouse Christmas Commercial

Well, the holiday season is rapidly approaching…or it’s already been on for a few weeks if you work retail. Anyway, that means a large new set of emotional commercials. So let’s start. Macy’s tells the story of a touching gesture from a young boy who lives with his family on the mainland to a grieving young girl who lives with her father in a lighthouse. Aww. The song is a cover of “Everlasting Light” by The Black Keys, performed by Sarah Rayne. Excellent spot from BBDO New York. Here’s more about it from Ad Age.

Things Change…This Former iPhone Fanboy Is Now A Samsung Galaxy Devotee

This Samsung Galaxy ad has been majorly trending, with more than three million views since debuting yesterday. In 2007, Erik excitedly got an iPhone. In 2013, he meets Lauren, who has a Samsung Galaxy. As he falls in love with Lauren, he falls out of love with iPhones. Finally, in 2017, Erik makes the plunge and gets a Samsung Galaxy. As he sees people lining up for the iPhone X (a notably shorter line), he walks away with apathy. Damn. Things change. The song playing in this commercial is “I’m Moving On” by Chyvonne Scott.

NFL Shop Shows A Man Wearing A Ridiculous Light-Up Raiders Sweater At Christmas Dinner

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland/soon to be Las Vegas Raiders have one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL. It’s the kind of thing that can cause discord between fans. Here we see a man going to his in-laws’ Christmas dinner. He tries to wear a Raiders jersey…she says no. So he goes one better and dons this ridiculous light-up Raiders ugly Christmas sweater. Her family are all Chiefs fans, and they don’t look amused. I’m quite amused, however. I’ll update with actor/actress info about the husband and wife if I can find it.
