    Holiday and Seasonal Commercials

    I don't watch much TV lately, has anyone seen the creepy incest-ish Folgers commercial yet? Or did they stop using that one because of people either complaining about the implications or shipping Peter and his sister?
  2. That's Mrs. Butterworth's, not Aunt Jemima. I'm pretty sure Mrs. Butterworth is meant to be white, she just looks darker-skinned because of the syrup/the material the bottle's made of/whatever.
  3. So I was watching Good Mythical Morning today (yes, in the evening, I do things weird xD ), and the third video of the day was a commercial-based guessing game. The last commercial they showed (which I managed to find the commercial itself on YouTube) was this (YT: 1987 - Jordache Jeans - Old Man Commercial) . What was Jordache/the ad agency they used thinking? I mean "we just killed an old man, let's go buy jeans"? And the sound design, or possibly the degradation of quality over the years, or both, makes it extra creepy. I get shivers not just down my spine but throughout my whole body when the "NO!" at the beginning plays.

    Nope. It's based on "would I say 'I' or 'me' if I was talking about just me?" So for a sentence like "I went to the store", it'd be "My friends and I went to the store". For one like "There was a lot there for me to buy", it'd be "There was a lot there for me and my friends to buy".

    To be fair (having never seen the commercial), if she's saying 'me and my single girls do something', then you're right, but if she's saying 'something about me and my single girls', then she's right.

    I just looked it up, and apparently there's a series of them (MailShrimp, JailBlimp, KaleLimp), and they're ads for an email marketing service called MailChimp.

    What does that have to do with it? Crawling through a doggy door is likely to get anyone arrested, because it makes you look like you're doing a B&E, and even corrupt and/or racist cops know that white people commit crimes too.
  8. Is this the commercial you're talking about? Because if so, I definitely hear 'single cup or a carafe'.

    Holiday and Seasonal Commercials

    This time of year every year (or at least the last two), Cineplex (in Canada? Don't know if they have cinemas outside of this country) has been putting out a commercial, not strictly holiday-related but one can see the connection, promoting 'sharing the magic' (of film) with loved ones. I don't know whether I love it or hate it, but I do know that both of them provoke a strong emotional reaction in the form of 'not-so-manly tears' (as opposed to the 'single manly tear' stereotype, not saying crying isn't 'manly'). The first one: Lily and the Snowman The second: A Balloon For Ben

    Black Mirror, Nosedive.
  11. I just looked it up, it's "An' off you go", not "Owf you go".

    He definitely looked like the Universal classic Frankenstein's Monster, at least I was easily able to make that connection - and there was nothing prior to where you say you came in that should have made it obvious, up to that point he's just playing a music box (the one that he replays from his phone while he's singing), singing under his breath while sitting in a chair, and you don't even see his face until he gets to the tree iirc.

    A Little Help: Finding Older Commercials

    That one sounds so familiar! I can't remember what it was, though. Can't help but think how much hate it would get if the 'bottle-holder' was a guy and the 'voodoo-dolled' was a woman, though, and I remember the version that did air getting praise and laughs.

    Their rights to not have their SACRED tv time ASSAULTED by TEH GEY, of course.

    Excuse me? Did you just 'blecccch' gelato? Clearly you've never had the right gelato. There's a place near me, called Humani-T Cafe, that makes and sells their own gelato (and vegan gelato, and sorbetto - somewhere between 'dairy-free gelato' and 'sorbet/sherbet', sherbet in the North American meaning rather than the powdery confection that is British sherbet), and it is better than ice cream by a factor of at least 5.
