Skittles Pox…Gahh!

This Skittles ad isn’t new at all, having been released in late May 2015. And it was a popular one, racking up more than 43 million views. But I saw it recently, and realized that I’d never written about it. It’s weird like a lot of Skittles commercials. And creepy. Oh so creepy.

This Commercial Sucks: McDonald’s Breakfast Has A Creepy Mannequin Fan

So “Carl” enjoys McDonald’s breakfast. An Egg McMuffin is apparently better than dice and cassette tapes among other things. I’m not lovin’ it. This commercial sucks.

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.

6/25 update: Heh, here’s Jen’s spoof response created by UCBComedy. Good stuff.

A Creepy Cat Yodeling For Walmart For Some Reason

Yeah, it’s pretty creepy. Makes me glad that my cat only meows. Why is the cat yodeling? Who knows. The Martin Agency, creator of this ad, must really be into talking/singing CGI animals as evidenced by their Geico work (which I loved). This…not so much.

Best Buy’s Creepy Guy

Oh, Best Buy. I would have expected better from such a wholesome, Midwestern corporation. I know he wants to sell Just Dance 3, but WHY is that salesman so interested in a sleepover with middle school girls? “Do YOU like to dance?” Jesus. It seems like he’d also be into the girls dancing to another Katy Perry song. That pedophile smile. The lyric “the way you turn me on” in perfect sync with his pedophile smile. And then he busts a move at the end. I sincerely hope that’s the only thing he busted. Creepy, creepy, creepy.

Reenacting Birth With Fruit Snacks

Saw this on Ads of the World and just had to include it on here.

Creepy. General Mills, I can guarantee that’s not what I’d do with a year’s supply of fruit flavored snacks. Gusher juice smoothies would be more my style.
