1. Laurel, thanks for your post. A good collection of videos. I couldn’t help but think that the McDonalds vid was out of place and brought the tone down a bit too far.

    It’s not an anti-ad, but one of my all-time favorite pieces of user generated content is the video about United Airlines. United breaks guitars by Dave Carroll. With over 11 million views, the brand damage has been significant.

    The new lessons of ‘Seller Beware’ can come at a cost…


  2. The curious thing about most of these “ads” is that they are often smarter than the real ones. TV is not called the idiot box without reason. Ad agencies and clients need to make / approve smarter ads with more variations if they are to get more “cut through” on mainstream tv. Too often mainstream ads look like they are compromised and dumbed down which they are.

    Ironically many of the anti-ads featured would do well if they were picked up by the organisations they lampoon.

  3. This is really interesting. It is for the benefit of the consumers, right? Not for these companies? It is very informative.

    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
