Commercials That Annoy Me - OLPC: John Lennon

For a while now, I've wanted to write a series about television commercials that have internal logical flaws that confuse and infuriate me. In theory, I would provide amusing commentary that ridicules the advertisements, explicating their problematic elements in a pithy and delightful way.




Unfortunately, I have not been watching much television lately, and my brain has been jettisoning its cargo of annoying commercial data to make room for some shit about single-step elimination reactions. Apparently, these reactions are important for some admissions test.




I did come across this stupefyingly atrocious example of a nonprofit PSA, but I am afraid that watching it just now has broken my mind beyond repair.








A Message from John Lennon

Please try to take up my slack on this maiden blogage, and I will try this again if I come across another annoying commercial. Also, if anyone finds any bits of brain lying around, please return them to me at your convenience.

Thank you.

  1. Is that Paul Rudd doing John Lennon? (Walk Hard reference, you guys!)

    Anyway, it's still better than every single perfume commercial. "Scarlett Johansson is trapped in a glass box. She is surrounded by mimes, who are trying to break into the box. The entire room is slowly being filled with water. A large clock is counting down to zero. When closing in on zero, Scarlett screams: "I am my own person!" Dolce & Gabanna, Smellsauce.

  2. Wow, my dad does a better John Lennon impression than that. I can't wait until they get Elvis to endorse one of these: "Ladies & gentlemen, these here laptops are taking care of business, see? Adios."
