A Few More Thoughts On Recent Advertising

Favorite slogan in a really long time:

Best Watch Your MTV’s.

Most unfortunate poster placement:

“The 40 Year-Old Virgin” next to “The Clairvoyant Child” of USA’s the 4400.

Don’t think she saw that one coming.

Worst celebrity endorsement:

Terry bald-as-a-doorknob Bradshaw as spokesperson for Supercuts.

Wha? Have you guys seen these commercials? Where Bradshaw talks about how his hair color is a “spring?” No Terry, it’s the dead of winter, and you’re a maple tree. That’s your hair color.

In fact, Supercuts loves Terry and his non-existent flowing locks so much, they made little computer games and cartoons that feature him on their website, like this one:

Between life and cream rinse, Terry chooses cream rinse.

Here you maneuver Terry around on a surfboard and pick up floating hair product while trying not to get eaten by the school of sharks in the water. Maybe that Blow Out guy Jonathan Antin should do a site like Supercuts to get more people into his salons. Nothing says “class,” or “haircuts” for that matter, like a flash animation game of, say, Wilford Brimley in a hang glider catching falling curling irons while avoiding vultures.

That one’s free, Jonathan. The rest will cost you. Dearly.

It’s the right thing to do, Jonathan.

Could I please have more explanation of the quote of the day? “His hair was sticking up and all you had to do was give him a peanut butter sandwich.”
—John Madden quoting Bill Parcells on Drew Bledsoe
Am I missing something? It's awesome in an unknown kind of way.

That's the beauty of the quote. That WAS the context. There was no context. It made no sense.
