Everything You Hate About Advertising, All In One Place




Did you know that yogurt will solve all your problems? And if that doesn't work, try salad! You will immediately become a porcelain-skinned, fit, smiley, bland-faced person who loves life, long walks on the beach, and vapidly dancing around with a dead look in her eyes. Congratulations! You're happy now, and it only cost you a couple of bucks!

Or at least, that's what advertising would have you believe. You'd think with all the fancy celebrities and millions of dollars flying around the ad world these days, modern Don D.'s would be able to come up with something better than laughable stock photography and totally meaningless messaging, but hey, what can ya do? When Peggy quits, things go down the drain, that's all there is to it. Luckily, though, you can at least get a kick out of badvertising — in the form of this video, which sums it all up in one fell swoop. Of course, the video itself is advertising at the end of the day, for a brand of low-fat cheese...but at least it's creative.
