Introducing Ad Bits

Too much of my time is spent picking Play-Doh out of my carpet, singing Old MacDonald, or emptying my 2 year old's training potty. Glamorous, I know. So here I go a-bloggin'. I have a bit of marketing history and love (or hate) commercials, so please tune in for my thoughts, opinions, and comments on some of my favorite and least fav ads.

The hoof motion at the end of his monologue slays me. Of course the best line is, "enjoying the flavors of a fallen friend" followed closely by Pig B's brilliant delivery of "True".

Unfortunately, any love I have for Boost Mobile is hugely diminished by the armpit hair lady.
Cannibalism references? Hilarious. Bad hygiene? Unacceptable.
