One more place for girls to yammer on…

This is gross, right?

Ok people – I complain about advertising a lot. For instance, this commercial:

Why does this couple never have toilet paper in the bathroom where it belongs?

Why does the guy not get his own damn toilet paper?

Why is his wife always in the room where the toilet paper is?

I spend so much time thinking about how much I would make fun of this couple if I knew them in real life, that I don’t even know what brand of toilet paper is being advertised because I’m not paying attention.

Tonight I saw a commercial that took dumb advertising to a whole new level. I would link to the commercial here, but apparently it’s too new and not on youtube.com yet. I’ll just go ahead and paraphrase it for you:

The real Wendy comes on and tells the people in tv-land how nice it was of her dad to name his restaurant after her. (I agree. Dave Thomas seems like a pretty nice guy.) Then it gets weird. Wendy goes on to say that in honor of her dad…she is going to name a new burger after him. (Awesome, I’m all about honoring your late parents.)

Want to guess what she named the new burger? Don’t. I’ll just tell you:

Dave’s Hot ‘n Juicy

Blech.

  1. that toilet paper commercials bugs me out, man! The way he keeps asking for her to ‘toss him a roll’ even after he LOSES HIS SIDE HAIR!

    In related news, my dad used to tell me that Dave from Wendy’s kept his daughter Wendy locked in his attic because she was horribly disfigured. Kinda ruined frosties for me.

    • I also hate the fact that he can’t catch a roll of toilet paper. My coordination rivals that of a 3 toed sloth, but I can still manage to catch something as light as a roll of toilet paper.

      We clearly should work in advertising.

    I saw the Wendy’s commercial shortly after reading this post and thought of you. They showed Wendy WAY to briefly at the beginning. I would have liked to get a better look at her to see how she is aging. I can’t help it, women are catty.
