Best of Ad Times, Blurst of Ad Times

The alternate name I had for this blog was “The Blurst of Times.” To my amazement, someone else had that already.

Ad campaign I hated with a passion: Alltel’s Chad Series.

I hate this man’s face. I hate the nerds v. jocks cutesiness. I hate this song. Fuck this.

Runner-up: America Runs on Dunkin’. It’s like a copy of a copy of a copy. Wittiness lost in translation. Intentions killed in a boardroom.

Ad campaign I dug: Wendy’s red-haired dream.

Someone had a bad drug trip. This series of ads actually got better the more whacked out it got. Like all good things though… too much for too long.
