Just Me?

Does anybody "get" that stupid Wendy's commercial with all the tree-kicking people, and the doofus in the "Wendy" wig? If I'm not eating Wendy's, I'm a tree-kicker? Maybe I'm just old. If you are young, and this commercial is funny, please let me know. I'm off to get some kasha and have a nap.

My issues with the current Burger King ad campaign inovolving "the King" would just open up a whooooole 'nother can of worms, and...well, my nap, you know. Must go.

  3. I agree. It almost makes me nostalgic for the McDonald's Hamburgler.

  5. Is this a new advertising trend, somehow leaping off from the "there is no bad publicity" platform? I mean, there's the Burger King plastic-head guy, who EVERYONE hates. There's that whole, "HEAD-ON, APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD" deal, and so many other commercials that no one can stand. I almost have to wonder if it's deliberate.

  7. It is the rabbit on a log problem. There are to many commercials where it is two rabbits on a log and then bam it goes to black screen and you are asked to buy the new car, tv, phone, burger, ... I think the advertising people have just given up, or we've gotten to the class that drank too much and didn't pay attention in Advertising 101

  8. I would watch Burger King and the Wendy's idiots non-stop for an entire day rather than have to watch Jared the Subway Sandwich Whore in a commercial even once.

  9. mica - you are exactly right.

    dave2 - Ah, but have you seen the new Subway "Jared backlash" spots? Where people have these impossibly ginormous sandwiches just OBSCENELY crammed with meat? I think it was in response to Quiznos' "where the meat, Subway?" campaign. So much for Subway being "the healthy alternative."

  10. I can't say I've ever seen that commercial. I'm of the opinion that the whole thing is in your head, as it were. Crazy poodle girl. ;-)

  13. DO NOT get me started on the eat-at-Burger King-grow-a-mustasche-pieces of crap they call advertising. No. No. No. No.

  14. The Wendy's one made me giggle a little. I'm 25. Maybe its the age. :) Or maybe I'm just overtired.

  15. I can't stand it, and I'm 26. But then, I LOVE my TiVo because it allows me to skip commercials altogether, so... maybe I'm an anomaly?

  16. I am sure it's on purpose, just to irritate you. It irritates you so you remember it, you remember it and get the brand stuck in your head, get the brand stuck in your head and remember it when you're hungry. Remember it when you're hungry and spend money there.

    You already remember it, so they're on their way.

    Advertising people must be related to lawyers and being such "the first thing we do, we kill all the lawyers", then second thing we do is kill all the ad men.

    Or at least all the cheesy ones.

  17. Even the commercial cannot override the potato-ey goodness of Wendy's fries.

    And, someone here in CT recently had the entire Burger King costume offered for 50 dollars on Craigslist. Seriously. the guy said he bought it for a Halloween party, but it creeped him out so much that he has to get rid of it. i considered buying it and scaring the bejeezus out of my family, but then I knew they would probably shoot me.

    But I digress.....

  18. I don't know. But this new trend of mascots coming to life is freaking me out.

    Like the Burger King.

  20. I'm going to admit that I love the burger king commercials, especially the creepy ones where he's sneaking into somebody's house to bring them breakfast? Hilarious, weird, funny. Marketing genius.

    I don't get the wendy's commercials lately, or the weird acid-eater skittles commercials. The one with the sheep freaks me right the heck out.

    PS: I love a Whopper.
    PPS: your website comments HATE ME.

  21. Maybe McDonald's needs to get in on the weird wave of commercialism. All I know is I can't stand the 'cool' Alltel guy and the five other 'uncool' guys one moment longer...

  22. Um... Tree huggers = vegetarians, but non tree huggers (tree kickers perhaps) want a big slab of beef...

    Ha!

    It's still ridiculously stupid.

  23. I have not understood it and I have seen it many many times.

    Muting it and coming up with one's own dialogue does enhance its humor tho..

  24. You awake from that nap yet because there are commercials to be watched and mocked. Wake up.

  25. kicking a tree is stupid. and he says "just because theyre doinng it doesnt mean i have to"

    so i think it means, just cause every other fast food place is selling fake meat burgers, doesn't mean wendy's has to sell them too.

    cause selling fake meat is stupid just like kicking a tree.

    and hes got the wendys hair on so he represents wendys deciding to start a new real meat trend, which is obviously not as stupid.. ?

  26. Actually, as a man .. I appreciate it much more now that the followup commercial has come out .. the Wendy's girl (as a guy) being cheered on by millions adoring female fans (with guy faces) over the double cheese and 6-mega bacon slices burger.

    Hot Juicy Burgers for All!

    (Oh, I could be wrong too.. however I still laugh every time i see that new commercial)
