That Does It - I'm Drinking Coke Products From Now On

From The Beautiful Game:



Will somebody please explain to me what the hell that was all about?

Or, if that question proves too difficult to answer, try this one: Pepsi has David Beckham, Thierry Henry, and Christina Aguilera at its disposal, and this is the best commercial they could come up with? I thought the point of commercials was to convince you to actually purchase the product being advertised?

On the other hand, what do you expect from the marketing geniuses that thought this commercial was good (I can't even bear to emded it. It will literally swallow your soul if you watch it more than once)?

(By the way, the title is a lie. My love of Mountain Dew is not dependent on advertising. Stupid commercials or not, I just don't know how to quit Dew.)

The second ad may be painful and pointless, but I'm just happy to see Parker Posey getting work.

This is what a TV ad should be...

That Fallon commercial would have been much better if Parker Posey would have just kicked him into the air and he never came down instead.

Repeating the use of "Da Da Da" by Trio for an ad and "spicing" it up with Christina's vocal undulations is crap -- especially when VW used the same basic song for an ad years ago.
