Book Of The Month Is Something To Look Forward To…Every Month

Even though I write a blog about commercials, there’s a lot that I miss. It’s pretty inevitable, given the sheer volume of advertising in the world. So while this funny Book of the Month spot might not be new (it came out in November), I just saw it and thought it was worth a post. It shows women excitedly talking about “that time of the month” to bemused people. “It’s so heavy, I cried” one lady gleefully announces on the phone. We all know what it sounds like they’re talking about, but it’s really their Book of the Month. Haha. Here’s more from Adweek.


Grandma’s Cookies Gets Awkward (And Kinda Sweet Too)

If you were to approach strangers, coworkers, and friends and ask if they were your grandma….before ACTING like they are, that would be pretty awkward right? Therein lies the premise of these funny, uncomfortable, and sometimes sweet spots from Grandma’s Cookies created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.


Kmart Will Ship Your Pants

It’s kind of crazy that I hadn’t seen Kmart’s “Ship My Pants” (created by Draftfcb) until today. It’s gone wicked contagious (I’m so sick of the term “viral”) since being uploaded to YouTube on April 10. More than 10 million views…wow. According to AdFreak, “Ship My Pants” has an astonishing one share for every nine views. Anyway, the commercial itself follows the method of copy that only sounds vulgar. But I think it does a better job. And we learn that Kmart can ship your pants, ship your drawers, ship your nighty, and ship your bed! For free! Useful, funny, and punny. A winning combination. For now it’s only online, but a TV run should be coming soon. If you haven’t already seen it, here it is. You’ll probably react like a tittering twelve year old.

Sears Has People Randomly And Hilariously Running Into Appliances On The Beach

Alright, so it’s not really a new commercial, but still a fun one. You gotta love how it starts off as a stereotypical fashion-type ad, with the happy couple frolicking on the beach. And then…BAM! Totally random, and totally hilarious too. Good job, Sears.

That Ragu Commercial Where A Chubby Kid Walks In On His Parents

Somewhat random and uncomfortable, but pretty funny at the same time. I’m glad Ragu made this kid feel less traumatized.

I Talk About The New Coke Zero Commercial AND Stuff

I really like the narrative structure of this ad. AND I’m pretty jealous of the guy. AND I’ve never had Coke Zero before…does it taste more like regular Coke than Diet?

Bonus video: AND do you remember this Coke Zero spot? Funny AND low-budget.

People Who Eat Snickers Taste Better To Sharks

Made me laugh.

And incidentally, shark attacks are increasing in the United States.
