Carlton and Folgers Ads

Sunshine man peers down at sleeping man.There are two very cool commericals mentioned on JJ Sutherland’s ‘Mix Signals’ NPR blog. The first is a quirky, self-conscious implementation of a cool, over-the-top beer ad concept. I like the little touches like the men piling over the wire fence and the lone horse rider; they are dramatic and yet pointless much like the whole commercial. The second ad is a Folgers commercial that is the stuff of my worst nightmares. Can they show this stuff on TV? If you know me and my relationship to mornings then you will understand.

Speaking of video “entertainment” on the web, consider putting the Earth in a sandwich.
