Geico: Motorcycle Fantasies And “Here I Go Again” Interrupt This Groom’s Wedding

This guy is cruising along in his motorcycle through a beautiful landscape (it looks like the Big Sur stretch of the California coast). He’s singing along to Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” . The motorcyclist looks like he’s having an amazing time on the lonely street of dreams. Cut to reality…and he’s still singing. Only now he’s saying his vows on the altar during his wedding. Whoops. Turns out he does know that his vows were a Whitesnake song. Haha. This one has been quite popular on YouTube, raking up more than 9 million views to date. Ted Jonas plays the Whitesnake-loving groom, and Sarati plays his annoyed bride.

Verizon’s Wedding Commercial

Verizon’s Joy (played by Britt Lower) returns for a new ad, this time at a wedding. The bride and her fellow bridesmaids are looking for something old. Maybe they could use some of their old phones. Thomas Middleditch appears out of nowhere, since that’s what he does in these spots, and talks about them getting the new iPhone on Verizon. Joy comments that the camera is amazing, but unfortunately for Thomas Middleditch, he can’t be the ring bearer in this wedding. I’ll add the identities of the bride and other bridesmaids when I get that information.

Renault Reveals Saucy Secrets In These Ads From Italy

One advantage European ads have over their United States counterparts is that since European society is much less prude, their commercials tend to push the envelope more than the ones we have in America. Sure, our ads are often suggestive, but something as blatant as this hilarious Italian campaign for car company Renault would never fly. In them, sexy surprises are progressively revealed as different pairs are driving in crucial situations. A different safety feature of the Renault Scenic is featured with each reveal, as they’re the types that would take your attention off the road. The featured song is “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel, which fits but is pretty overused in pop culture. They’re quite amusing ads, created by Publicis Italy in Milan.

Opti-Free Prevents Irritating Lens Face

These Opti-Free commercials aren’t new (they’ve been out since April) or particularly high profile, but I’ve seen them recently and they gave me a chuckle. I’m a glasses man, so I can’t relate…but maybe you contact people will. I think the best spot is the one at a wedding (with the requisite Canon in D playing), where the groom accidentally winks after “I do.” Whoops. In another, a woman inadvertently rolls her eyes on a first date…though as it turns out the guy might not want to get to know her better. And there’s the young man whose eyes do weird things when he tries a burger grilled by his new girlfriend’s dad.

Seth Rogen And Amy Schumer Enjoy Bud Light At A Gay Wedding

June is Pride Month. Later on this month, it’ll also be the one year anniversary of same-sex marriage becoming legal nationwide. So while it’s still called same-sex or gay marriage, it’s really just marriage now. And Bud Light is getting in on the spirit. On the heels of their Super Bowl commercial (which was terrible), Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer report to us from Steve and Greg’s wedding. It’s a pretty corny ad, but at least it has a good message. This is also the type of commercial that will offend and outrage bigoted types, but whatever.

This Couple Has McDonald’s Quarter Pounders After Their Wedding

Apparently at weddings, there isn’t a whole lot of time for the newlyweds to eat dinner. They’ll spend their time schmoozing with friends, dancing, and having awkward conversations with those distant family members that they don’t really know but got invited anyway. The meal often takes a backseat. In fact, the whole wedding experience is so stressful (and also intoxicated) that a majority of couples don’t even have wedding night sex. Anyway, in this new McDonald’s commercial, we follow a newly married couple at their wedding. At the end when they are getting into the limo to depart, they open the door and find couple Quarter Pounders, fries, and a note from the bride’s dad. “There’s never time to eat at your own wedding. Love- Dad.” Aww. Pretty sweet actually, but hard not to be a little snarky. It’s nice that he didn’t get stuff off the Dollar Menu, but McDonald’s? Maybe they just like Quarter Pounders? Or maybe he’s just a little broke from paying for the wedding and feeding everyone else? I guess we’ll never know. The song playing is “Lean On Me” by Telekinesis. Jaclyn Hennell plays the bride, while Josh Salt is the groom.

TurboTax Will Help You Through Unexpected Life Changes

It’s that magical time again…tax season. I’m a huge procrastinator, but as soon as my W-2s come in, I do my taxes. There’s nothing better than getting money back for stuff I did last year, and I want that refund ASAP. So I’ll be using TurboTax pretty soon. In the meantime, I’ll have to be entertained with this TurboTax campaign. It shows various humorous situations where you could face unexpected life changes that would affect your taxes, from Mardi Gras to a rather eventful wedding.
