Oddly enough, Ozzy Osbourne — who has already worked his geek mojo for World of Warcraft — has just teamed up with Samsung to help catapult the new Samsung Jack Windows smartphone into drool-worthy gadget status. This cheeky new commercial features Ozzy having some issues with his personal assistants and shows how his Samsung Jack could easily replace them. My favorite part? Watching him do an "unboxing" with his rock star black nails!
Apple is oh so cheeky. It's just debuted its rebuttal commercial to Microsoft's Laptop Hunter ad campaign. It's short, sweet, and straight to the point — PCs are malfunctioning headaches, while Macs are simple and user friendly. Can't wait to see what their next commercial will be.
Sure, you know Steve Jobs, the Woz, and Bill Gates, but do you know the name Ajay Bhatt? He invented the USB, and in this new commercial from Intel he's being given the celebrity treatment — a premise that's equal parts inspiring and amusing.
This commercial gets off to an unimpressive start — take a look at that rat hole they call a warehouse — and it only gets worse from there. "I say, I say, I say" are Frankie and Johnnie selling furniture, dance lessons, or fried chicken? Bad dancing belongs in every low-budget commercial, but I'm still trying to connect the dots between furniture and fried chicken— buy a couch, get a grease stain for free?
The Microsoft ad people have been working on overtime on new ad angles — in the past year alone, they've had the failed Seinfeld concept, the adorable Rookies concept, and now, it's "Laptop Hunters," where cameramen document "real people" shopping for new laptops. I'm using my quotation marks liberally because the first ad features a girl named Lauren who has already been revealed to be an actress.
I'm torn about these ads because I think it's actually a great idea because the people are so relatable, but I think it would have been a whole lot more effective to use real people instead of actors. I mean, what else is the script going to have them buy?
Anyway, let me know what you think of Microsoft's attempt to show people choosing to be PCs.
I'm one of those people who is easily moved to tears, and being both a health fanatic and a mom, this commercial about quitting cigarettes really tugged at my heart strings. I happen to think it's a really effective commercial, but what's your opinion? Do you think it would inspire someone to quit smoking?
We already know that Beyonce thinks Nintendo's new Rhythm Heaven game for the Nintendo DS and DSi is very relaxing, and after watching her play the game with her nephew, I think it's safe to say she thinks it's a lot of fun too. Well, the final cut of the Rhythm Heaven commercial featuring Beyonce herself has arrived, so be sure to check it out below. And a status update on my Rhythm Heaven progress? I've only got a few more games to unlock but am still completely addicted! The remixes at the end of each level are amazing (love the brighter colors and faster music) and how much fun is the Moai Doo Wop mini-game?! It definitely deserved its four out of five star rating.
Though we have yet to see Tom Cruise, Guitar Hero has employed a wide gamut of celebs to play his famous role in Risky Business, but with a GH twist. With the latest March Madness/Metallica inspired spot, I thought I'd remind you of the past stars who've stripped down to their pink shirt and undies, and slipperiest socks, and yes, taken those old records off the shelf.
Boost Mobile is back with another one of their eyebrow raising commercials, which is a part of their Unwronged video series. It wasn't too long ago I was pointing out the strangeness of the last TV ad, and now the cell phone company is back with this interesting number. Promoting their $50 a month unlimited plan, which is free from hidden fees, these commercials may be just what society needs right now — a good phone deal and some wacky entertainment.
When entering a new relationship, sometimes a passionate moment takes hold of you, and there's no stopping what's about to come next. If you're unsure about the guy's STI record, then you'll most definitely want him to quickly slip on a condom so you can get back to getting it on, but what if he refuses? Well here's one way to deal with it!
So have you ever had to walk away from sex with a guy because he wouldn't slip on the love glove?
