New Favorite Commercials
As a marketing major in college, I take particular interest in commercials.
There are many types of commercials (rather obvious comment but I had to make it). Most commercials annoy me. Of course most of those annoying commercials are meant to annoy. They want you to remember them. I do and I make sure I don't buy their product. That's my little way of getting back.
I hear a lot of commercials because I have the TV on as background "wallpaper" while I'm pounding away at my computer keyboard as I am doing now. I tuned out most of those annoying commercials either in my mind of the really annoying commercials I hit the mute button on my TV remote control.
This morning I heard a new commercial that is immediately one of my favorites. It's a GEICO commercial. Some of the GEICO commercials are just plain stupid but I find this one rather clever. Made me laugh out loud. This is a commercial we can all identify with, driving and traffic and frustration. "Hey! We're all got places to go!" Yes, indeed we are. (smile)
What do you think? Am I off or what?
"Big man with the horn."
Yes, I know, I have a weird sense of humor. That's what makes me SO interesting.
