Pepsi Revives No Matter How ‘Dead’ You Feel

Wonder how this will effect the ZomPoc?

Wonder how this will effect the ZomPoc?

Now this is perfect.  Pepsi is so powerful that it can revive even a dead person.  I do wonder how this will impact the ZomPoc?  Is this maybe how it all gets started?  Someone spilled a Pepsi over a grave and voila!  Zombie Apocalypse!

The product name is prominent.  The image is engaging and memorable.  It isn’t offensive (except to a very very small percentage of  viewers).  It is funny.

Well done Pepsi!  Nailed it!

I Admit

Okay, with the American football Superbowl just past us again, I have to admit to my absolute hands down favorites of ads.  I am a sucker for Clydesdales.  If I won the lottery I would have a bunch of them.  And so…Budweiser gets my  vote for BEST. ADS. EVER.  I love their ads with their Clydesdales.  And the Superbowl ads of the horses being friends with a puppy and rescuing him….it doesn’t get any better.  It’s adorable.  Puppies.  Horses. Kindness. Love. Friendship.  I watch them over and over.  If they come on during a show, I stay and watch them instead of going for snacks.  Whoever does their ads definitely knows what they are doing.

For the best ads ever.   Budweiser you get the NAILED IT! award.

Here’s a link to their ads.  Go ahead.  Watch them.  You’ll feel good.

McDonald’s In The Rain – Missed It!

McDonald's In The Rain - Missed It!

Husk vi også servere tørvejr – this Danish ad says to remember that McDonald’s also serves in dry weather. So…we pair a miserable day, and a woman who looks totally miserable with a product you want people to feel good about. MISSED IT

Anti-Fat Ad -French Ministry of Health – MISSED IT!

Anti-Fat Ad -French Ministry of Health - MISSED IT!

Missed It By That Much

Face it France. People turn away from things that gross them out. How many overweight people report feeling invisible a lot of the time because the world shuts them out. This doesn’t make someone want to lose weight. It just makes them turn the page.

Hair Removal Ad – Grossing Out the Buyers

Hair Removal Ad - Grossing Out the Buyers

Missed It By That Much!
The idea is obviously that the hair removal product is so easy and so effective that this man’s chest rug comes right off. But the alluding to skin pulling away from the body is too gross for words. Skinning this man alive – even if only a layer or two of his skin – is an image that probably doesn’t make most people think “oooo! great product”. And those that do think that..maybe are good folks to be your customers.
