Commercial of the Week is back from a LONG hiatus. Saw this yesterday and it really cracked me up.
Minute Maid isn't really a sexy product nor one that necessarily stick out through the clutter to 18-35 men. This commercial accomplishes that and caps it with some nice imagery that makes me miss the awesomeness of juice. Kind of want some Minute Maid, but also thinking how awesome it would be to down some Squeeze It's for nostalgia reasons.
Also floating around are two god awful Just For Men Commercials, that are sooooo bad they are actually kind of good. I can only find this one if you click to read more.
This commercial just dripping wet of lameness/corniness is painful to the point where you remember it. The other one I can't seem to to track down is of a gray haired dad looking through the classifieds before his daughter recommends dying his hair and wearing a tie for an interview. The dad comes back from the interview looking less washed up via some hair coloring and a tie, and is now employed where he and his daughter have a lame hug that would make Danny Tanner proud.
Although this commercial does not seem to be online, some simple Googling shows a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with it as well like this long strong of comments on Yahoo Answers.
