That Stupid Nissan Rogue Commercial With The Racing Couple Who Hates Cooking

I’m sure some more sensitive types would say that this ad encourages speeding and breaking traffic laws in order to win a silly race (despite the fine print telling us not to be like this couple). The last one home has to cook! And of course they tie, so they just order in. The use of Edwin Starr’s “War”, a classic Vietnam-era protest song, is a curious (and pretty terrible) choice of music. I’m not offended by this ad, but it’s mostly just stupid. In case you’re wondering, the wife is played by Alexis Krause, and the husband is Jeremy Glazer.

That Stupid Pepsi Next Ad With The Baby

In the last post, I wrote about a Pepsi Max commercial/short film starring NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving. It was good stuff that kept you interested even if the twist wasn’t completely unexpected. But this Pepsi Next ad just sucks. Oh look, the clueless husband and wife are SO BLOWN AWAY by Pepsi Next that they ignore their CGI baby doing crazy things. They even need their camera because they are really dumb…much like the mouth-breathing audience that this spot will probably appeal to. This is a commercial that makes people hate commercials.

Scion’s Babes ‘N’ Donuts: Lowering Everyone’s IQ

There’s lowbrow, and then there’s this. Here’s the Babes ‘N’ Donuts ad for the Scion iQ.

And if you don’t feel dumb enough by now: Cops ‘N’ Donuts, Dudes ‘N’ Donuts, N Bikers ‘N’ Donuts. I didn’t watch them all to try and save myself from the stupid.

Coors Light Presents The World’s Easiest Bar Exam

The video quality is crap, but this was the best I could find. So sue me.

I’m not in law school, but I hear the bar exam is more complicated than that. You probably shouldn’t be a lawyer if you can’t tell when beer is cold. Besides, who wants beer to be that “super cold”? Would give me a brain freeze.

And here’s the version that’s airing more often now. The one with the girlfriend, the missed date, and the guy with the world’s biggest shit-eating grin.
