Funny Commercials

August 23, 2013

Recently there have been very funny commercials appearing on TV screens. Peyton Manning and Shaq both advertise for Buick. In Peyton’s commercials he is riding along and barking out commands to the dash board as if he is a quarterback on the field. To us low-tech drivers, we are more interested in gas mileage, rear-view mirrors, and comfortable seats over being able to talk to the car and tell it to call somebody or give us a new route or find us a restaurant. In the case of Shaq, his come-on for Buick is that the car is so roomy even he can fit in it with ease. What you don’t see is how to he got into the car, and how far back they had to set the seat so his knees did not block the view of the road ahead. I am not knocking Buick, but I doubt if that model is as roomy as it looks. If you are into fancy cars, there is always Marty Brennamen and his son, Thom, selling Camargo Cadillacs. To appeal to the typical Cadillac owner, Marty is in his 3-piece suit which I doubt you could get him to wear unless he was being paid a lot of money. The funniest commercials, however, belong to those football players who are selling adult diapers. One particular commercial has an
ex-lineman leading an exercise class where all of his subjects wear adult diapers. A second one of these features Wes Welker, DeMarcus Ware, and Clay Matthews wearing adult diapers as they practice football. I guess when you get traded from the Patriots you have to supplement your salary one way or another! (in the case of Wes Welker) I don’t know what the excuse is for the other two. Oh, well, whatever it takes to get us to buy a product. The companies will try anything!
