This commercial has come up more than once on several other boards and so I'll add it here.
There is a current taco bell commercial where a guy is getting a cup of coffee and says 'keep the change'. The next guy in line says "what are you doing? You know you can get blah blah blah with that change?" Prompting the first guy to take back the change and say "you really just pushed a button."
I'm a firm believer in any press is good press, so on that thought, here's some free press for TB. You're advertising firm sucks ass. The commercial has nothing to do with TB other than a tag with what to do with change. Honestly, I can't even remember what you're pitching, (which is a sign of a bad commercial) but I know I'll be heading to Del Taco from now on....so maybe it did work since I remembered who the commercial was for.....
Where is our saviour? Where is our superman with his white apron tied around his neck? Why, in this year of our lord, 2009, are we still inundated with hollywood telling the masses that waitrons are the enemy? That we are mindless, lazy, and not worth the change in your pocket. That money is so sacred that it is better to snub a fellow human being than toss them a pittance for a job well done?
Why are we portrayed as people that need to be saved or pitied?
Who will unite us as a people and lead us in boats made of monkey-dishes and ramikens to hollywood on a sea of ranch dressing to slaughter these pigs and flood the streets red with ketchup?
To end on a positive - the only time I can remember a waitress portrayed in a decent light (no, the movie 'waiting' was not a decent portrayal of anything other than an nut sack) is the song waitress by the band 'live'. Check it out.
