Epic Television Fail: Part 2

It seems that annoying product promotion comes in trends:

#1 Self complementing product names

einstein

Darn Good Coffee – I was corrected at Einstein Bro’s a couple days ago that I couldn’t actually just say, “I’ll have a medium coffee.” They apparently didn’t offer that kind of caffeinated beverage.

coldstone-1

Cold Stone – There’s just something desperate and gluttonous about saying, “could I have a GOTTA HAVE IT cake batter with two mix ins please?”

#2 Making seemingly inanimate objects magically appear in your life.

geico

This is the money you could be saving with Geico

quaker-oats1

The Quaker Oats quaker – wherever he is, he’s always got snacks for you.

burger-king-halloween-mask-2

Last night was amazing. Have a breakfast sandwich.

#3 Making traditional images of long-loved icons eerily animated.

orville-707825

Orville back from the dead, and still pop’n the fluffy corn.

colonal-sanders

He went from being good old grandpa/Santa Clause out of season to (literally) a cheerleader of fried chicken.

sunmaid

Sun Maid maid – strangely seductive in a  computer generated/pick grapes/ farm daughter/talk about the sunshine kinda way.

Or not.

#4 Food on steroids

coke-zero

Coke Zero – because the CEO’s still like mixing Coca Cola the old fashioned way.

olivegarden

“When you’re here, you’re family.” –  like real Italian… on idiot.

tuscani-pasta

Not even actual Italians could tell the difference between homemade Italian and Pizza Hut’s new Tuscani pastas in the surprise camera captured taste test. This must have been right after the real Italian vs. Pizza Hut’s new Tijuana crack test.

wendys1

This one doesn’t even make sense.

And it’s just a little creepy that she’s actually talking to us… from behind that red… circle hole… thing.

Where’s Dave when you need him.

And now for something totally different:

Yatta Yatta

just because we Japanese couldn’t possibly embarrass ourselves enough…

  1. Yatta…thanks, now my head just exploded. I am not mature enough to handle that.

  2. What, you didn’t like Yatta? It’s a humdinger of a Japanese masterpiece!

  3. I am convinced Yatta is really a secret chinese plot to get revenge for WW2 by destroying japanese culture

  4. They invented Hello Kitty.
    They put mayonnaise on their pizza.
    They bathe cows in beer and call it Kobe. And it’s awesome.

    And yet, those little asian islanders still rule the world.

    Curious, is it not?
