AT&T/DirecTV During March Madness…You Won’t Miss A Thing

These AT&T/DirecTV spots are alternately funny and stupid/annoying…which might be what they’re going for. There’s the Purdue fan parking booth attendant who’s missing their game, and they’re tied at the half with a mid-major school. Interestingly, Purdue was only leading by 1 at halftime in their first round matchup against Vermont, a mid-major. Then there are the poor people stuck in a sales review, despite a buttload of games. Dan Finnerty is the singer, and he’s crooning a parody of Aerosmith’s sappy #1 hit “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”

 

Dodge Wants You To Take (And Find) A Journey: The East

The last Dodge Journey is up for grabs, and it’s in the East. Here are the clues. There’s also a live feed on Dodge’s YouTube channel.

500 miles: Started in Albany, NY. Crossing a bridge. The Malta Drive-In…Malta, NY. Wild West Ranch is in Lake George, NY. And crossing into Vermont.

450 miles: The oldest organized sporting venue in the US. Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY.

425 miles: Queen of American Lakes. Lake George.

400 miles: Friends Lake, NY. Or more accurately, Chestertown, NY.

375 miles: The finish of the Adirondack Marathon. Around Schroon Lake. So now it’s in a 375 mile radius around Schroon Lake, NY. Could be anywhere in that area. Upper New England? Canada? The Atlantic Ocean? (That would be a twist!) Good luck!

And the Journey was found on the Atlantic Coast of Maine.

9/27 epilogue: I thought this was a really cool campaign (which also provided a big bump in views for this blog). But it definitely did have some problems.
