Leaving America

If you have a chance to travel to Europe, check out the local TV. The Ads, particularly on British TV are 10 cuts above most of what you will see in America. This is the new British Stansbury Christmas Ad which is making waves felt in the US already – If you are a cat owner, you probably will recognize a little of Mog in your own cat.

Department Store John Lewis is known for some of the best ads annually. This certainly beats the hell out of the jingle driven drivel presented on US TV –

This one from the Lottery company in Spain. It engages the watcher by telling a story in one minute –

And this from German Grocer LIDL and it’s “Christmas Class”

Apparently, the concept of grabbing the audience with quality over quantity sailed over our advertiser’s heads. As advertisers on cable now chew up 20 minutes of an hour program – maybe these clowns could learn something about why folks are increasingly buying ad blockers and watch commercial free on the Internet. Familiarity, in terms of ceaselessly being bombarded with the same poorly constructed information indeed breeds contempt.

Chicken-Diddle. Mary J. Blige Burger King Ad

Things that make you go Hmmmmm…

Now … Why exactly is this one “racist” and the black Popeyes commercials aren’t?

Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige’s Burger King commercial pulled

Mary J. Blige’s Burger King commercial, which featured the Grammy-winning R&B star singing about chicken, has been pulled off the air.

The fast-food chain is blaming music licensing issues, not criticism of the ad, for the decision to pull it.

The ad, which features Blige singing soulfully about chicken wraps, premiered this week.

But as the video went viral, some in the black community criticized the ad as stereotypical. The black women-oriented website¬†Madame Noire¬†likened it to “buffoonery.”

Burger King said Tuesday the commercial was pulled because of a licensing concern. The company said it hopes to have the Blige “ads back on the air soon,” though a spokeswoman would not comment on whether they ads would be the same.

The spokeswoman also noted that other celebrities, including Salma Hayek and Jay Leno, also are advertising the snack wraps.

A rep for Blige did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
