Amazon Echo: This Grandpa Likes “Valerie”

Aww. Here’s a very cute and wholesome spot for the Amazon Echo. A young man gets his grandpa the new Echo Show, explaining that he can use it to play music or check the weather. Grandpa seems uninterested though. Grandson helps out around the house, while singing “Valerie” to himself. Turns out that grandpa likes the song that goes “Valerie” (Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse’s extremely fun version of “Valerie”), and the young man is pleasantly surprised.

That Skippy Commercial With “Uptown Funk”

Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” was the #1 song of 2015. One of the tune’s lyrics was “smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy.” So it seems surprising that Skippy waited so long to capitalize on this reference, but they finally have in their new campaign from BBDO Minneapolis. Cooper Friedman plays the young protagonist, and I’m conflicted about whether he’s a cool kid or whether I want to smack him.
