FDL Late Night: Two Creepy Ads

http://youtu.be/YEMnyiDKUJI

When I first saw this ad, I thought it was a right-wing produced anti-Roe v Wade commercial because it is soooo yucky and creepy. For me the guy falls straight into the worst stereotype of the typical smarmy cad who wants to bang without a condom on the first dip. He’s slick, faux-seductive, self-entitled, bougie, and a boozer. Flunk. Fail. So when I saw it was produced by the pro-choice Center for Reproductive Rights, I threw up a little in my mouth.

This new pseudo-PSA from Coca-Cola pushes their low calorie options: Look, mini-Coke for portion control! Look, a lower calarie options with lots of fake stuff in it! And look, we voluntarily replaced high-calorie beverages in school vending machines with lower-calorie options just to insure we maintain out revenue stream. It’s nice they give money to the Boys & Girls Club, who I support through their local poker tournament at the Hustler Casino; I guess we all have our off-base ways of doing it for the kids.

The Coke ad basically says if you exercise enough, you can drink their glop to your heart’s (and waistline’s) content.  Nice showing the white bread sammiches in the kids lunches too. Wheat bread and fruit would have made a better subliminal.

Your thoughts?

This quartet would have been better than the trio.
