Spotted our dancing chicken suit flyer friend again and scored an interview. Watch here as quicktime and here as .mp4. It's spicy and mad crazy like H5N1 bird flu. Previously: Chicken Suit Schadenfreude.
'Dern Superbowl ads rounded up. Black underlines lead to videos. All videos here at Google video. Godaddy: Edited together at the last moment. After all the hype--whatever. The *uncensored* version is still tame. Burger King: Scrumptious but didn't completely satisfy. Just like fast food. Have the commercial your way at the whopperette's site. They'll be releasing the "more mayo" version on February 8th and the "extra cheese" on Feb 14th. CareerBuilder: One of the best spots. Spot on. Introduction of jackasses was a good twist. Budweiser: Mostly boring except for the streaker spot. I didn't understand the one where the horse decides to pull the beer truck on its own. The fan one where everyone turns their cards to make a Bud and a glass and then pours it in the glass and everyone goes ah - a yawner. We know this is all done in CGI so there's no magic and you're left thinking, who are these ninnies with their hyper-coordinated placards? Cadillac: Super sweet production values. However, it all got ruined because they put up the disclaimer "2007 model shown" before it actually got shown. It's supposed to be a tease, fellas, couldn't you have waited a few nano-seconds? Fabio: Fabio hair gel or something. Gayitudinous Maximus. The Third. Degree: We've already seen Stunt City a whole bunch but it's stays strong, long after initial application. Ameriquest: The airplane awkwardness. Funny setup and punchline but it didn't connect to the brand for me. Sidebar: Does Ameriquest offer insurance if you fall off the Mile High Club? Emerald Nuts: Dumb. No one cares about your nutty anagrams anymore. Hummer: City stomping robots and monsters falling in love and birthing an H3. Decent showing, okay, you placed. Here's the two's love web site. Motorala: New small cell phone shoots in from outer space as an asteroid. Millions years later man invents cell phone towers & you can actually use it. Miller: Touch football isn't hardcore. Unless the stunt models are drunk. Blahh. Mastercard: We love Macgyver. Macgyver has to buy lots of little things from the convenience store to make his bomb. Funny, self-aware of both brands and dare I say, priceless? I'm not going to comment on the tv and movie trailers because really, who gives a crap. There's some spots missing but I started the game late and then
fell asleep in the third quarter. Sorry, guess I wasn't sufficiently
entertained! Go Steelers! Adfreak was good andlive-bloggedthe wholething. Go VNU! So did Adrants. Go indie blogger barons! So did Adjab. Go crappy AOL blog network! American Copywriter will have a podcast of them watching the whole thing up later today. Go sheep!
Having slung many a flyer in my day, my heart goes out to this poor soul forced to dance in a giant plastic chicken suit. Watch the movie I made of his pain this morning. One time I had to stand in the concession area of the Denver Bronco's stadium and belt out "Bronco bag! Get your free bronco bag!" to entice people to fill out home insurance leads. It was awesome.
