Hotels.com: Captain Obvious Reminds These Jealous Moms About Condoms

This memorable Hotels.com commercial has been out for three months, but I just saw it for the first time. We see a glamorous woman by the pool, and then discover that it’s an social media pic that some of her jealous friends are looking at. How can she be on another vacation, while they’re jacket-clad at the playground with their kids? “Wow…so happy for you”…maybe not. Then longtime Hotels.com spokesman Captain Obvious (played by Brandon Moynihan) pipes in from a swing. He notes, obviously of course, that they’re jealous. If you’re an English language nerd, you might note that they’re actually envious, not jealous. So how is she there, while they’re stuck at the playground? Captain Obvious delivers an all-time zinger: “Condoms.” And they can’t argue with that. Bahahaha. So don’t hate-like their trip…book yours with Hotels.com and get rewarded basically everywhere. I thought this commercial was hilarious, but I have a feeling that some others aren’t fans. So what say you? Cameron Kelly plays the vacation woman… anyone know who plays the jealous mothers?

Cottonelle Brings “Down There Care”

When you’re a toilet paper brand, you often have to try a bit harder to make a splashy ad. Even though people use toilet paper every day, it’s often something that you don’t really want to think about. That’s why you sometimes see toilet paper commercials that are a bit more memorable, like Charmin’s bears. And now enter Cottonelle with “Down There Care”. Something tells me that their “Vacation” ad won’t be the most popular with social conservatives, what with the reference to waxing and the suspiciously brown-stained peach. And though we’re evolving as a society, I’d say we’d still have a ways to go, judging by the YouTube response to the two boyfriends spot.
