It surprises me the things that make me smile when it comes to products. Here are some things I just “heart” count down from 10 to #1 favorite – that I can’t completely understand why… clever marketing at it’s finest:
#10) The Australian Jacko “Oi” guy- Energizer battery dude. He’s annoying as heck, and yells at you, but his little “mini me’s” are so funny- in my high school years, we loved this dude. Everyone went around saying “Oi.” (well, the guys did, thinking they were cool.)
#9) Avery Schreiber, The Dorito Guy – the dude that used to crunch a Dorito as loudly as possible and everything would fall apart. Come on, who hasn’t done this? As kids, we’d always chomp as hard as we could. Flinging bits and pieces at one another some wet with saliva. (Gross, now that I think about it)
#7) Wiener Dude- Seriously, I have no idea why, but I just love him! This commercial still cracks me up. If they sold the antennae clippy thingy at the local restaurant, I’d buy it (as long as it was under $5.00 bucks). If someone bought me a Retro-Tee Shirt, with him on it, I’d so wear it. (as long as my boobs fit in it)
#5) The Afflack Duck – how stupid right, who seriously thought this one up- yet the damn duck makes me laugh. When he’s floating on a pool raft and falls off, and Especially when he’s doing yoga and falls over…
#4) Mt. Dew- any of those old Commercials – my husband has a retro t-shirt that I just love because it’s our favorite soda. Not too many places have it- but Wienerschnitzel does and 7/11 Big Gulp. Do the DEW, man! As a Kid I wanted to go jump off cliffs into water with the teenagers.
#3) Dean Winters- The Allstate Mayhem guy – all these are hysterical. The actor does such a good job. I think I watched all the commercials doing this post. “World Worst Cleaning lady, having a spectacular day.” and “I’m a hot babe, out jogging, making sure this stays a 10…”
#1) Who doesn’t love JACK, come on! – Every holiday, we buy a Jack Ball – we put a hook in it and seriously add it to our Christmas Tree. For the longest time, we didn’t have a Tree Topper- so we’d buy the latest Jack Ball and screw him on top. Yes, we’re bizarre.
