Post a commercial you can't stand.
    #15903675 - 03/05/12 03:21 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

I'll start with that newer "naked m&m's" commercial.  I fucking HATE that commercial, the stupid look on that stupid things face as it dances and humps around the screen.  I can't believe someone actualy thinks thats gonna get people to buy more m&ms, complete waste of millions of dollars to air that piece of shit.

I'm sure it did get people to buy more M&M's and was not a waste of millions of dollars.

Stupid commercial for sure though.

Why are you sure it made people go out and buy them though?  People that buy m&ms already know they exist and arent gonna see that commercial and drop everything to run out and get some.  At most it may make a handful of people get a craving for m&ms and they may pick some up next time they are shopping but will probably forget by then.  I bet the amount of people that buy some just because of that commercial wouldnt add up to enough money to even pay for what that commercial costs.

The point isn't to get people to drop everything and go out to buy M&M's. It's a whole lot more subtle than that. Take a naked M&M, everyone has realized that the brown M&M's look a lot like an M&M without candy coating since they were children. That thought will be reinforced every time they see a bag of M&M's in the line of a store, any time they are buying ice cream and are choosing toppings, any time they need a chocolate fix, in very subtle ways.

A great example of the commercial working is this thread. It was memorable enough for you to make an online thread about it, getting people to discuss M&M's and getting people who crave chocolate to possibly buy a bag sometime in the future.

The commercial, like all successful commercials, is a psychological investment into the minds of any one who watches it, anyone who talks about it, anyone who is possibly likely to buy some in the near future.

I understand the whole point of annoying jingles or commercials are going to be likely more memorable and whatnot but that doesnt mean anything.  For example that stupid geico gecko commercial, yeah everyone knows about the geico gecko but in all the years thats been around never once have I considered using geico, same with probably like 80-90% of the people who see it so just because something is memorable doesnt mean its going to lead to people buying the product.

They really only need the 10-20%.

Amen.

"
People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you. You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity. Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs."


Bank.

I barely see any TV commercials any more, mostly just watch netflix and torrented stuff. We do have an antenna and a digital tuner for one computer but we don't use them very often, but if you prerecord shows you can still skip the commercials. Quality is great on the antenna signal.

Also the Direct TV commercials you know the ones "Don't have a grandson with a dog collar." and "Stop taking in stray animals." Those really annoy me. Any Charter commercial is fucking stupid, particularly the Timothy ones, but definitely the other "Let it all in." FUCK the timothy one just came on :mad2:
