I promise it is worth your time. It is really edited well.
PK. THAT was funny…
OK not PK… Der.
Humour is clearly subjective. This was not funny.
I miss Mystery Science Theatre, wish we had it for everything on TV – this guy could heckle car commercials.
I love the “Bostan Accent” on the jerk guy!
Reminds me Mark Wahlberg. Or some other guy from “Entourage”.
One of those “real people” in the Chevy commercials was a contestant on The Bachelor.
Are you for real? Which person? And which season of the “The Bachelor”? You mean one of the women was a contestant?
The last line is cracking me up, thank you, very much needed a cackle today.
I’ve always hated that commercial. It looks like the kind of self absorbed shit they make you watch during quarterly companywide meetings.
Well, maybe that’s because too many people in modern-day advertising are hipsters (they like to call themselves ‘creatives’, though). No longer is advertising run by classy people like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJzBTekxKWo
Not all advertising people I know are pretentious jerks, though… I know a few decent human beings who work in advertising.
And at least not everyone’s wearing white in this one like in those pretentious Dove commercials.
Is this guy related to Matt Damon? He looks likes him.
I effing HATE those commercials (love my Malibu, but hate those commercials). The acting is so bad.
LMAO. Enty, this is so entertaining. And it feels like poetic justice.
I used to get so offended when my agent sent me casting announcements for Dove. Dove is such a career-killer (they make you sign an agreement that you’ll never act again, basically—I guess it’s for people for whom “being on TV” is a bucket list item, but not for anyone who actually wants to do commercials to get their foot in the door as an actress). I thought when my agent sent me these commercials, it was because he thought I had no future as an actress (and then he started typecasting me—like, dude, stay in your lane: that’s the CD’s role, it’s not up to you to decide what roles I get cast in).
I still won’t buy Dove products (unless I get sent them for free, which I dont like wasting—espcially because when it’s mailed to me it starts having carbon value/I assign ‘carbon credits’ for it for the fossil fuels, but I digress). But mostly I won’t buy Dove because they’re so BS with their “everyone is beautiful” company value campaigns (just like The Body Shop) but then they did a shampoo ad where they insulted my natural (copper-streaked black) hair colour (which my mother/granny all have inherited). I don’t mind Unilever companies in general, but I just won’t pay for anything Dove.
Now when I see a “real people” Dove ad on television, I think, “girl, you’ve had your 15-minutes of fame, now your acting career is over. Ovar!”
Thank you, Enty. ♥
He makes a good point about ‘Initial Quality award’. WTF is that anyway???
Enty, thanks for sharing. Those carefully-scripted-to-hit-every-talking-point (“it’s a game changer!) Chevy commercials make my skin crawl every time I see one. Watched several of the Zebra Corner vids and they are right on target.
I should have clarified that I loathe those scripted Chevy commercials because they have the faux “real people” disclaimer. We are spoon fed so much unreality in advertising, and it’s easy to swallow, unthinking, if you’re not hyper-vigilant. Advertising has become tremendously deceptive over the years and is, I think, a contributing factor to people’s receptivity to faux news. Fox News, for example, is no better than the Chevy commercials. All deception and manipulation.
