OK… I know I am going to come off as a really, really fucking old dim witted fucktard… But who is Megan Fox? Yeah, I know she is famous, but for what? I looked her up and apparently she was a hit in Transformers, a movie I wouldn’t be caught fucking dead watching. Maybe she’s like Kim Kardashian… Famous for being famous, but with a smaller arse. Anyway, the reason I ask, is ‘cos all the usual suspects, particularly Creativity, the CP+B fan club, is jerking off with lip smacking excitement for the Acer spot from Mother featuring Ms Fox talking to dolphins… Listen up guys… It’s fucking soppy… Particularly when you compare it to the earlier one with Kiefer Sutherland, which is great. Obviously, both cost a fortune. One was worth it, the other simply pissed away millions… Here’s why… Now pay attention junior AdTards… Kiefer Sutherland’s spot really maximizes the value of the obvious Jack Bauer character to make something as ridiculously off-the-wall as fucking cup cakes. It’s very funny, and he is great and totally in character. It is a demonstration of perfect casting for the job at hand. On the other hand, the Megan Fox spot is just a showcase for a really fucking bad actress to pout and pose surrounded by a bunch of bad actors in white coats playing faux scientists. It’s a perfect example of why so much advertising these days sucks. The weird thing is you have these two extremes in the same campaign. OK… Maybe I’d do her, but I’d never put her in an ad!
Dolphin & Chips works... Better yet, bring on the tripe!
