Subtracting the Ads

Slate's excellent Ad Report Card column has published a year-end round-up of the worst ads. I agree with most, although it omits a few obvious ones- most notably, "Head On Apply Directly to the Forehead" and, of course, "This is Our Country." I'm also thrilled that I don't have to see that awful "Screaming Kids" spot again for a whole year.

I also really hate two more that are ubiquitous during football games: "It's the Mirrors," and that dumb-ass Dunkin Donuts spot where the people sing about how they don't know if the Starbucks drink sizes are in French or Italian- "perhaps Fre-talian." Like "Grande Frappucino" is that fucking hard to say.

The worst of the year, of course, is "Brown and Bubbly," but at least it never ran again after the Super Bowl.

Grande Frappucino might not be hard to say, but Venti skim triple sugar free vanilla latte is a mouthful.
What the f$#& ever happened to Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large?
That commercial has actually done more for Starbucks than it ever will for Dunkin' Donuts.

As for the DLP commercials with the little girl, STUPID, but the DLP TVs are actually really good. Go fig.
