This spot could be a whole lot worse. So it’s got that going for it. But it’s not really funny or cute or quite what I expect from McD’s. It’s just sort of… there.

Bojangles chicken. Congrats on making a commercial that literally any product could be substituted into and still work. Bojangles’ – Surgeons from BooneOakley on Vimeo.

This thing is a minute and a half long and I swear somewhere in here is the product and the consumer benefit. I think. I mean, I was watching a billion shots of a guy in a bear suit doing X-games stuff and occasionally holding the product for a second or two, but that’s about […]

While JCPenney fights off the attacking social media hordes for selling the T-shirt that reads, “I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me.” I’m personally more aghast that anyone would wear such a god-awfully designed shirt in the first place.
