… oh what a relief it is!
Commercials. I’m deathly allergic to them. I can’t understand why there would be such hoopla over who produced the best SuperBowl commercial.
To me, that’s like auditioning doctors to see how they give a rectal exam. Like said exam, commercials are a necessity, not something to be eagerly anticipated.
Commercials and station promos take up ten minutes out of each half hour of programming. One third. So if your cable bill is $90, of that, you are paying $30 a month to watch commercials.
That said, some commercials have had an impact on our culture.
Recognize this woman?
How about now?
She has a million fans on Facebook and at Hallowe’en, there is a run on “Flo” costumes.
Over the years there have indeed been some memorable commercials. In no particular order, here’s a few that come to mind. Enjoy.
Now this one I didn’t know about until I moved to the South and my ex-wife overly-exaggerated her already significant drawl to emphasise, “It’s Shyke n Byke and we hayulpped.” Listen to the accent on the two kids compared to their ‘parents’.
and the classic…..
Wouldn’t a Dow go good now?
