Microsoft Uses the Double Rainbow Guy in Cringe-Worthy Commercial

I don’t know what it is about Microsoft and making terrible commercials. Their Seinfeld ads were a disaster. With Bing, they just sort of used the power of information overload, mass tedium and constant brand plugging to get their point across. I sort of liked the “Windows 7 was my idea” commercials, and by Microsoft standards they were works of ...

Innocent iPad Executed by a Shotgun in the Name of Monetary Gain

At least it didn’t feel any pain. FreeTaxUSA used the death of an innocent iPad to advertise their services. While death has been used for self-promotion before (hell, look at most political ads), never have I seen such a blatant use of gore and bloodshed used so lightly. FreeTax shot an unsuspecting iPad with a shotgun slug for their own ...

McDonald’s Now Offering Free Wi-Fri

Free Wi-Fi is great and all, but it’s sort of expected these days, especially from big chains. I want to know what else they can offer me.

Sprint To Apple: Fuck You Back

Last week, I posted a little blurb Apple made about the Palm Pre and iTunes syncing. It was essentially a big “Fuck You” to Palm and its iPhone competitor, the Pre. Now Sprint is striking back with an ad that directly attacks Apple and AT&T. If things keep up this way, we’re in for a long summer. Link

Scam The Shitty Ad Companies With PayPal

Yes, you read that correctly. I’m talking about using PayPal to scam a scammer, not vice versa. Surely you’ve clicked an ad that stated you could receive a free iPod/TV/PS3/Xbox 360/Wii, etc. When you visit these websites, you usually have to sign up for online offers with your credit card in order to claim your prize.
