Progressive’s Babyman: What Do You Think?

Progressive’s “Babyman” rides in the shopping cart seat, knocks boxes off grocery store shelves, spills candy everywhere, drinks milk straight out of the carton, and is in daycare despite being an adult. A childish adult, but an adult nonetheless. Because Progressive says “Act your own age, get your own insurance.” So is Babyman insulting to the intellectually challenged, insulting to millennials, or not insulting at all? Are people too easily offended? Is it an ad that’s stupid or funny? A lot to consider here from a silly commercial. Also, anyone know who plays Babyman? He looks like he could be John Oliver’s little brother.

7-Eleven, Norway, And Chlamydia…Thank You, John Oliver

Last night, John Oliver did a short segment about a curious 7-Eleven ad campaign from Norway. The ad starts with the scenery that Norway is famous for: fjords and the midnight sun. But then it takes a sudden turn and mentions chlamydia. Turns out that Norway has one of the highest chlamydia rates in Europe. So, visitors from abroad…protect yourselves from the locals and buy condoms at 7-Eleven. Alrighty then.
