Do You Belieb In Macy's? I do.

I scream, you scream, the guys scream...for Justin Beiber? 



Now I don't STAN for Beibs, but this commercial is HILARIOUS!  Plus, a portion (side eye) of the proceeds go to the Make A Wish Foundation. 
Good job Macy's marketing department.  This one's GOLDEN!

This Put Me In A Laughing State.

If I ever wanted to trust my cell phone with my banking, I'd totally be into this.


Pretty funny.  The sincerity in the actors is what got me.

Things That Make You Go "Ooooh"

With the NBA lockout I can understand Nike's concern about a possible dip in sales.  But this commercial managed to have a message.

Nicely done.

Happy Halloween From Snickers

This is BRILLIANT!


EVERYTHING was right about this commercial!

Mio my!

I get the concept, but I don't appreciate it.  As an objective viewer, it was advertised well-ish.



Con: A water ENHANCER?! I just don't know about that. There are SO many ingredients in this.  Water is 0 sugar, 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 repercussions. 
Pro: The product will sell easily as it fits the 'demand' to drink water.  (Because it's good for you!)

So FUNNY! Allstate Does It Again.

It is Saturday afternoon and I am actually chilling.  I, unprepared, got hit with this bit of marketing genius:




Hilarious! RIGHT?!  So clever.  Good job Allstate.

Hot Pockets, Hilarious

I LOVE this commercial!  It's really clever and poignant.



The waitress' dancing was the cherry on top!

Filtrete Water Station...Wait, what?

I saw this commercial and became instantly confused.  I really looked at the product and tried to apply it to my life.  "Would this product enhance my life?"  



The answer, no.  Even based on the "9 to 5" schedule I have, no.  I drink large amounts of water, more than I believe is right but whatevs *shrug.  I'm looking at this bottle and it's about the same size as any other water bottle.  It just seems that if people just recycled we could be alright...instead of creating a potentially very unsanitary and honestly, pretty useless machine.  

Fergie = Elvira?

So, in watching my usual dose of trash on television this commercial comes on...


This commercial is a mix of too much and not enough.  Too much of Fergie being bought and sold as a Soda-pop whore, who is VERY inappropriate with fruit and carbonated beverages(oh my!), and not enough actual material Dr. Pepper could be proud of.  I understand the concept of product placement (her song in the background) and making a dollar (oooor several millions, undeniable that sex sells).  I just wonder where the imagination is.  *Crotch shot, classy.

This IHOP commercial had in me in tears laughing at it's cuteness!  I mean, literally on the floor of my studio apartment, crying laughing and scrambling for the remote to watch the 16 seconds all over again.

Craniums & Commercials

Hello everybody!

My name is Angelica Jones and I am a Marketing major.  Ever since I was a kid I LOVED commercials, jingles and all.  As I got older I began to really look at them and analyze them.  Adding education to age and experience  to perception, my interest in commercials only grew and my analyzing got more intricate.

This blog is to highlight the good, bad and the ugly of the commercial world.  These commercials are viewed by me, in my own free time, at home.  Hope you enjoy!
