Ads with an Attitude

Advertising  that makes me smile, snicker, or out right laugh:

Cheez-its.  Cheese crackers with an attitude.

Steak-n-Shake.  Tasty, greasy food with an attitude.


Mac.  Computers with an attitude.


ESPN ads are usually pretty good, the Dustin Pedroia ad for the baseball video game is kind of funny, and I enjoy the ads for Coke and Coke Zero.

Hate pretty much all the car ads, all house cleaning ads, definitely despise the Viagra ads and the stupid Ultimate Fighting ads that run constantly on CNN.  Irritating.  I would rather channel surf and watch nothing, then watch commercials.  I try to read a magazine, or get up and do something else than waste my time and sit through a TV commercial.  Since I hardly watch any TV anyway, what little time I do spend in front of the tube, I definitely don't want to spend it on a dumb ad.  Unless, of course it's a Mac ad or for Steak-n-Shake!

Dwight introduced me to Steak and Shake on one of our trips to Michigan. Here, here...spend your money there, specifically on the 43 way chili, or whatever it is called. Although, the rest of this I would't let Dwight read. He kind of is a fan of advertising, especially the car kind.
