How bad would it feel to go from having a great guest spot as rapper Lil’ Kev on a popular TV show like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia:
To having your voice over dubbed (or playing a voice actor’s body) in this TurboTax commercial:
Just Shitty, I’d imagine. But compared to these other shittier commercials, this one is The Shit.
DUMB AS SHIT
Airborne Effervescent Tablets not only rip-off an old special effect from a 1992 movie, it contains one of the dumbest looking and sounding animated spokescharacters I’ve ever seen. Mix that with the lawsuit Airborne faced a couple years ago regarding misleading advertising, and it wins being Dumb as Shit. (I was going to make an inappropriate comment about the tablets not giving the woman her boobs back, but I opted not to.)
ANNOYING AS SHIT
I like the J. Geils Band, and I’m sure that Energizer Lithium Batteries work great, but the version of the music used in this ad drives me up the wall. It butchers the hook, and keeps going and going and going…
CRAPPY AS SHIT
Happy’s Pizza is a local pizzeria (natch), and this is the commercial they ran around Halloween last year. I’ve written about how poor their ad department is before, but this one takes the
cake pizza pie.
