Ad Assassin

Advertising. It’s the bane of my existence, especially television advertising. If I could invent an app, I would invent the app that instantly eliminates irritating, stupid, and insulting advertisements. I was explaining my disgust with American television advertising to a colleague. He smirked, “At least you remember the ad, even the bad ones, right?” Yes, yes I do, so much so that I make a conscientious effort to NOT by the products of companies who can’t put together a funny, interesting or intelligent commercial. We gasped collectively when we looked at the cesspool of candidates offered up at election time and exclaimed, “This is our best and brightest? This is the best we can do?” I feel that way about television advertising. So apparently since advertisers are paid by companies to lie to them about how brilliant, amazing or catchy their advertisements are, I am going to tell it to you straight. I’m going to tell you just how irritating, stupid and insulting your ads are. Big company advertising boss, you step off and I should be the boss of what advertisements get on the air. Why? Because 8 out of 10 ads are crappy and apparently no one had the balls to tell you.  Since I am not one of your bootlickers I will tell it to you straight. Advertisers, here comes my hit list!
