By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.
I know that the name of this blog is "Fire That Agency", but these two uber-awful spots could not possibly have an agency behind them. Even the worst Ad agency has to have just a molecule of dignity or an iota of creativity, doesn't it? Let's examine these two spots and I will let you form your own opinion.
Example #1 is an ad using a "Sports Star" to hawk his own BBQ Sauce. Oh how the Fridge has slipped through the years. From Super Bowl shuffle to pushing his own special sauce. If having William Perry sell something isn't enough, we see that no money was spared on the finest special effects and production values. I could hardly tell surfer boy wasn't actually hanging 10 at North Shore.
Example #2 is what I imagine all those old KGB guys from the Soviet Union are doing these days now that the cold war is over. They are over here continuing to torture the USA by subjecting us to really bad ads. Given the choice between the James Bond nad clubbing or repeated viewings of this next spot, I would honestly have to think it over!
Or, perhaps this guy isn't from the KGB, and was just a tad too close to Chernobyl?

What's you take? Agency, or a brother-in-law with a video camera offering his services?
