Lactaid And The Cow With A Farting Balloon

This Lactaid spot has been around for a while, but I just saw it for the first time. A woman is drinking her morning coffee (cafe au lait specifically) when an annoying cow appears. The cow asks how her coffee is, but as she’s trying to answer, the heifer is making fart noises by pinching a balloon. Turns out, the woman might be lactose intolerent (or at least sensitive), and the balloon is probably simulating the sounds her body’s soon about to make. Fortunately, a more pleasant cow boots out the annoying one, and she’s carrying Lactaid.

 

Google’s Mark Potter Needs To Let Go And Move On

I like most of Google’s commercials. They’re always sentimental, but they do a great job of showing the sometimes overlooked roles that Google plays in modern life. But this one for Google Chrome is just awkward and creepy. Some might think Mark Potter’s attempt to win back his old girlfriend is sweet, but it fails on a number of levels for me. It comes across as too private…dredging through personal events in their relationship. Why did he document so much of their relationship anyway? At the same time, broadcasting his desperate message to the whole world looks as lame as a Jumbotron marriage proposal. So…how about that coffee? Not this time, Google. And in case you were wondering, the song is “Porch Song” by The Meemies.
