Before the Commercial Showcase (and Super Bowl) tomorrow and the $2.5 million ads are aired, I'd like to give a couple of quick thoughts on some advertising that's currently in rotation.
Good spot: Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. By it's very name, the soda sounds disgusting, but I love the commercial for it. A woman's on a date and the guy is talking about how incredible he is and then she drinks the pop and all she hears is "Ma Na Ma Na" (you know - the song by the Muppets). Any commercial that utilizes that song is A-OK in my book (er, blog).
Bad spot: Eclipse Mints. Every time I see that stupid wolfman talking about what he had for lunch ("...and a garlic pickle"), I want to shoot him with a silver bullet. There's just something about the way he talks. Ugh.
Special mention: HP. "Picture Book" by the Kinks is just so damn CATCHY!
