Who Is Kia’s New Spokeswoman?

This one was suggested by a blog reader. She’s in a commercial for Kia’s 4th of July sale, so it won’t be on for that much longer, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see her in more Kia ads. So who is Kia’s new spokeswoman? It’s Jenni Melear.


Colonel Chester Cheetah Stars In This Entertaining Commercial For KFC’s Cheetos Sandwich

Are you tired of boring food? Do you want something with co-branded flavor? If so, the KFC Cheetos Sandwich might be for you? Colonel Chester Cheetah rolls up on these teenagers at the skate park, and absolutely rocks their world. That’s right, it’s a KFC chicken sandwich with Cheetos sauce and also actual Cheetos on it. It’s like two logos in every bite! I’m a fan of the campiness of this spot, and the teens remind me of those SunnyD kids from the ’90s. And according to GrubGrade, the Cheetos Sandwich is actually quite tasty.


Subway Says “Ciabatta Believe It”

Subway introduces their new Ciabatta Sandwiches with a pair of dumb commercials. In one, a man drops on a knee and asks “will you have lunch with me?” to a woman. That’s right…he proposed with a Subway Ciabatta Sandwich. Yeah. The other is a spoof of a gender reveal party, where it’s revealed to be a Ciabatta Sandwich. Yeah. Let’s hope Subway’s Ciabatta Sandwiches are better than their commercials for them.

The Song From Apple’s Bouncy New AirPods Ad

This is another fun one from Apple. After putting in his AirPods and listening to a song, a man’s bored outlook on life starts to change. As he gets outside, the world turns into a bounce house. It’s a black-and-white visual stunner. The song that puts the bounce into his step is “I Learnt Some Jazz Today” by Tessellated. Good stuff. Here’s more about it from Adweek. And here’s another Adweek article about Tessellated the artist.

Wendy’s Has People Wishing For A $5 Biggie Bag While Stargazing

A mom (played by Jolie Jenkins) sees a shooting star with her two sons, and tells them to make a wish. Her older son, Jimmy, wishes for a Biggie Bag from Wendy’s. Her younger wishes that everyone loved each other. Guess which one Mom thinks is a great wish? Though to be fair, the Wendy’s $5 Biggie Bag with a Bacon Double Stack, nuggets, fries, and a drink does seem pretty sweet.

Better Late Than Never: State Farm Shows Sheryl’s She Shed, Which Is On Fire

State Farm’s “She Shed” spot isn’t new…it debuted more than a year ago in March 2018. I’m sure most of you have seen it a million times already. But it was one that I never wrote about on here for some reason, and it’s continued to be aired seemingly as often as when it was new. It’s a memorable one, but also quite annoying. Sheryl’s on the phone with her State Farm agent, Zachary. She says somebody finally burned down her “She Shed” and her husband counters that it was struck by lightning. Sheryl’s She Shed is being on fire is the point though…is it covered? Because it’s a State Farm commercial, of course it’s covered. Looks like Sheryl will be getting another She Shed, much to the annoyance of her husband, Victor. Inquiring minds want to know…was it really lightning, or did Victor actually burn it down? I hope this ad didn’t begin a trend of women starting She Sheds, which I guess is the female equivalent of a man cave. Sheryl is played by Nicole J. Butler, Victor is Reggie Currelley, and Zach Bay is a real-life State Farm agent based in Redding, CA.

Pepto-Bismol’s Airplane Song And Dance Number

There’s never a good place for diarrhea, but an airplane is one of the worst places for it. Here, a female passenger’s stomach is bubbling (the only version I could find online currently cuts this beginning part out), and then the Pepto-pink clad flight attendants start with their Pepto-themed song and dance. Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, and of course, diarrhea. I love the way the one flight attendant leans over and croons “diarrheaaa” at her. Pepto-Bismol Liquicaps knock out all of those symptoms. Good info. Anyone know any of the actors/actresses in this spot?
