I Disappointed Myself Again. Why? Because, Sadly, I Can't, I Won't and I Don't Stop

By: T.R. Slyder,

1) I'm a loser
2) I have too much free time
3) My memory is at best when the subject matter matters the least
4) I was searching for a particular Little Caeser's commercial and wasn't able to find it, but while looking for it, I watched a few other Little Caeser's commercials for old time's sake.
5) This was one of them (You'll have to listen to the whole clip for #6 to make sense).

6)Then I realized that that dog's voice was sampled at the very beginning of the song heard here: (The official video of the song can't be embedded, so I had to use this video version, which is actually amusing, but the audio clip is the important thing, and it's spot on).

7) Now you see why I am disappointed.

More Commercial Fun

By: T.R. Slyder,

While this commercial doesn't belong in this esteemed company, it wasn't bad back in the day. My mother loved it and it was from this commercial that I first heard the word "Origami". True story.

That's Brisk Baby

For some reason I still think about this commercial about once a week.

I Can? Why, Thank You.

It Humbles me to Admit This/Ask This...

I'm sure you've all seen these Rogaine commercials that they play during sporting events. Sometimes while watching TV, and not wanting to change the channel, yet not wanting to watch commercials either- I'll just get up and do something quick for the two minutes during the commercials. Something menial like take my garbage out, or floss my teeth, or something. Anyway, so when the TV goes to commercial I'll stop paying attention to the TV and focus on what I'm about to to do. Then the first thing you hear in this commercial is very loud and abrupt. It's *silence, silence, silence, * then speaker belt out, "You can buff up...". So I hear that when I'm not paying attention, and I'm like, "Wait, did that guy just say, 'You can b@ttf&*k..'?" Then after listening to the next part I realize he didn't swear in the first part.

More Stupidity in a Commercial

By: T.R. Slyder,

Shockingly its from a commercial that's marketing toward the "Dude demographic".

Those dumbass Axe Body Spray commercials where they say crap like "94% of women think nasty hair is a turnoff. Use Axe Shampoo, so that doesn't happen to you."

Firstly, what kind of brain-damaged monkey is surprised by this? They use the word "nasty" (or whatever the word they actually use is) for a reason. That qualifier IMPLIES that people don't like. That's like asking someone if they like food that is disgusting- by definition, you don't. Otherwise it wouldn't be disgusting.

Secondly, and more scientifically, Axe isn't really promising you a whole lot. They're offering to help you ascend to the "upper" 94% of sexy males. By undergoing the metamorphosis they promise I will become non-nasty.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm about to go set up my tent outside of Wal-Greens so I can be there when they open tomorrow to buy their product.

Three of the Four Best Commercials of the past 15 years.

By: T.R. Slyder,

The four best commercials, for my money, in the last 15 years have been the Seth Green "Cha-Ching" commerical for Snapps (now Rally's), Geico's Tiny House parody, E*Trade's Super Bowl commercial featuring the chimpanzee, and the "Dude You're Gettin' a Dell" commercials. Sadly, I couldn't find any videos where the guy actually says "Dude, you're gettin' a Dell.", but I did find the other three. Enjoy the splendor.

Whoever wrote this guy's dialogue is a savant.

Forgotten classic.

Yes. Yes. And Yes.

(NOTE: A reader pointed out that my glorification of commercials is contrary to one of my Remote Handling edicts. He made a good point. That point of course, was that I am stupid.)
