Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

What the…????

OK. This may seem off-topic, but it sorta is on topic. I am sharing the worst, the creepiest commercial ever. I have no idea what the creators were thinking, but because of my particular proclivities, I don’t find it amusing, just gross.

It’s for a new line of frozen foods. Some nerdy guy is on his lunch break, off by himself. He is so, er, enamored of his macaroni and cheese with bacon, he’s talking to it. Not just talking to it — he’s crooning to it, in a manner that suggests he wants to dig something else into it beside his eating utensil.

But wait… it gets worse. Take a look.

WTF? Say it with me, kids… EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

If this guy existed in real life, I’d say he should go ahead and have kinky sex with his lunch. Because there ain’t no real-life woman anywhere who would go near him.

Bleccch. And I thought reading about skin tears and pressure ulcers was cringe-worthy.

OK, let’s hear it. What do you guys think of this? Don’t worry if you like it. You’re still welcome here. 😀

    It’s one of those shake your head and groan failed attempt at humor kind of commercials. I guess that isn’t who you thought of when you played dream date back in the sixties. Lol.

    I took a marketing class once in college and one the two biggest things they found that would lure people into looking at advertisements was 1) humor and 2) sex. This commercial tried to combine both and did a very poor job. In my opinion there is a small grey area where they could have probably mixed the two but this definitely wasn’t it and if they accomplished anything, it’s probably turning people off their product. The last thing I want to envision while eating my next bowl of mac and cheese is this guy doing all sorts of things to it LOL.

    I’m not an expert at this, but as I understand it there’s some theory in advertising that says you may want to make irritating or disgusting commercials. The objective is not to make the viewer like it, is to make the them remember it. Yes this commercial is totally disgusting, but you do remember it.

    • Anonymous — yes, I’ve heard this theory before, actually. But I really don’t get it! Yeah, I remember… but I remember that I don’t want to buy whatever that stupid commercial is advertising!

    I would have been ok with the whole thing if he’d only taken his macaroni to the Red Room first before he spanked it. I bite my lip when I think about *that*.

    It’s ASININE! Sometimes I’m too literal and “humorless” for my own good. I can’t think of anyone in the “real world” who SPEAKS to their food like that.

    • A. — if this were funny, you’d suspend your disbelief and laugh. But it isn’t! What pisses me off is it’s yet another example of people making spanking and kink look stupid.

  10. My mouth fell open the first time I saw it. Creepy! Also one of those times I’m embarrassed for those who aren’t aware they should be (in this case, the writers of the ad).

    • Thanks, Mr. J! I think modern Ad-Makers should be required to study the works of people like Stan Freberg and Dick Orkin, who created memorable and entertaining bits that actually sold a product! (Look up their stuff on YouTube!)

  12. I thought it was funny, but it’s true, commercials that make you cringe are very memorable, and that’s the point.

    I wonder if that product line has made it north of the border.

    • Ariel — yes! I’m embarrassed for these people as well.

      MrJ — absolutely!

      Hermione — it seems to be a new product; I’ve never heard of it. I hope the food is better than the ads.

        Actually, I’ve had a couple of those and they’re not that great. Not awful or anything, just not great. Never wanted to spank it though. Or fuck it. I’m just glad he didn’t try to pull an “American Pie” kind of a thing. Now that would be REALLY creepy.

        I think the second guy was creepier though. The first guy was just pervy. Not that that’s a BAD thing… 😉
