I don’t know about you, but there are times I’d just like to cold-cock Smilin’ Bob.
Um, let me rephrase that. Some of these TV spots are getting just a tad raunchy, and while I have a certain taste for raunch, I’d just as soon it didn’t come up in the break room at lunchtime.
Like, for instance, this:
Quizno’s is always making the news for their ads, ever since the bizarre sponge monkeys of a few years back. Now they have an ad featuring an oven yes, an oven speaking in a low voice to some hapless employee and telling him things like “put it in me, Scott,” and “say it sexy,” plus implying that Scott’s been, uh, putting parts of Scott in the hot oven.
If my oven ever talks to me, what it’s most likely to say is “Did you forget how to run the cleaning cycle, dumbass?”
