Hotels.com: Captain Obvious Reminds These Jealous Moms About Condoms

This memorable Hotels.com commercial has been out for three months, but I just saw it for the first time. We see a glamorous woman by the pool, and then discover that it’s an social media pic that some of her jealous friends are looking at. How can she be on another vacation, while they’re jacket-clad at the playground with their kids? “Wow…so happy for you”…maybe not. Then longtime Hotels.com spokesman Captain Obvious (played by Brandon Moynihan) pipes in from a swing. He notes, obviously of course, that they’re jealous. If you’re an English language nerd, you might note that they’re actually envious, not jealous. So how is she there, while they’re stuck at the playground? Captain Obvious delivers an all-time zinger: “Condoms.” And they can’t argue with that. Bahahaha. So don’t hate-like their trip…book yours with Hotels.com and get rewarded basically everywhere. I thought this commercial was hilarious, but I have a feeling that some others aren’t fans. So what say you? Cameron Kelly plays the vacation woman… anyone know who plays the jealous mothers?

    The hotel com commercial with the mention of condoms is offensive and in poor taste. There are many delightful and beautiful subject matters to express without being down right nasty. This commercial should be taken off the air. The sponsor and writers should be ashamed of themselves.

      If you didn’t think this was hilarious, then you have no sense of humor.

      The MENTION of condoms…. oh my! Captain Obvious just said to the world what I say to my 3 sons.. if you don’t use condoms you will make a baby and your number one priority will be your child and not other things (in this commercial a vacation). I appreciate hotels.com for the PSA!

    It is so, so, so obviously hilarious! His, Captain Obvious’ delivery… deadpanned!

    Great commercial. Lighten up people. Get the pencil out of your asses.

  7. Bonnie Blu says:

    Really!! That’s the best you can come up with?? Condoms!! Can’t wait to explain to my kids how it relates to booking a hotel. Poor taste!

    truly a tasteless commercial. One of the single most wonderful things in this world is children. And they should not be jealous because she’s on a vacation and they have to watch their kids. Exactly right, sounds like another bash by the political left wing the ACLU and all those ones that want kids gone should be ashamed of yourselves.

    I love it and all their commercials. CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!

    Children are wonderful – if you make that choice.Those who are offended by this commercial should recognize why they are offended. Some people chose not to have children – and most likely are financially better off because of it. Do you wonder why women are having fewer children or none at all? They prefer a life different from their great grandmothers who could not have outside jobs, vote, or even have access to birth control. Welcome to the 21st Century. This is about CHOICE – which should be OBVIOUS – not offensive.

    Personally, I never like any of the hotels.com commercials because of the ugly little red man. I just saw their condom commercial for the first time. I can’t even. What an incredibly insulting comment about condoms. It’s a complete disregard for others feelings. Reminded me of JR. High potty talk. What’s the matter hotels.com? Can’t make money with good service? You have to get people talking about you another way?

  12. Jackie Kemper says:

    Best commercial yet, lol.

  13. Carl Patrick Reeck says:

    Triggered much?

  14. Suz B says:

    I love this commercial too! It’s hilarious!

  15. LaShondra says:

    I love this commercial. Why? Because it’s true and hilarious and anyone that is offended by this can’t possibly have a sense of humor? Mother of 3 and I felt that 🤣🤣🤣
