Macy*s “Gifts for Women” Commercial

Thursday, December 13th, 2007 by MaggieCat

I spend a lot of time watching the Food Network, and spending time on any basic cable station leads to seeing ads of… let’s say “variable” quality. Lately, Food Network has started showing holiday themed ads sponsored by Macy’s, listing gift suggestions that all fall into a a general category or theme. In theory it […]

Quizno’s Sandwich Envy

Friday, November 23rd, 2007 by sbg

Quizno’s has a new product on the market: Flatbread Sammies. I just saw a commercial for them which didn’t make me want to run out and try one. If you want to see it yourself, you can at the Quizno’s website.
For those who don’t want to go there, the commercial stars two women sitting on […]

Dentyne Ice: Get Your Prince By Chewing Gum

Monday, November 5th, 2007 by sbg

SBG’s Commercial Corner time. ;) 
Since the dawn of time, gum commercials have almost relied heavily on one type of marketing: chew our gum so your breath will be fresh when you kiss your special someone.  I get that, I do. But when I kiss someone, I don’t want a big wad of gum getting in […]


Friday, November 2nd, 2007 by sbg

Just a little Friday afternoon fluff. I’m home early have the TV on, and just saw a commercial I actually like. It’s for Hasbro’s game called Taboo, in which players try to get their teammates to guess a word without saying a certain set of other, related (taboo) words when describing it.
Sadly, I can’t find the […]

Captain Morgan’s Skeezy Halloween Commercial

Monday, October 22nd, 2007 by sbg

I take Captain Morgan commercials with a huge grain of salt. They’re ridiculous and over the top, peddling a product that probably doesn’t really need to be peddled that much. Most of the ads border on offensive (to me).
Their Halloween commercial crosses that border. Four guys stake out a Halloween party, find four women who look […]

The Twix “Need a Moment?” campaign

Sunday, October 14th, 2007 by sbg

I’ve found another commercial or two I dislike intensely. Unfortunately, I can’t find the specific one that’s made me irritated online anywhere. has one on their site for your viewing displeasure, that runs along the same theme.
All of the “Need a Moment?” commercials tend to bug me, primarily in that you shouldn’t need to […]

Reebok NFL Commercial

Monday, October 1st, 2007 by sbg

Has anyone else seen this commercial for NFL apparel directed solely at women?
Now, I’m not a sports fan. I can’t even remember the last time I sat down and watched any sport on television. I enjoy hockey, but prefer it live. That said, I really enjoy the Reebok commercial. I like that they’ve managed to […]


Baskin Robbins: Mom as a human garbage disposal

Monday, September 3rd, 2007 by BetaCandy

Baskin Robbins is running a commercial in which Dad tells his son to finish his peas, or they won’t go out to Baskin Robbins. Before the kid can react, Mom frowns, grabs the son’s plate and eats the peas directly off it. Mom, by the way, is plump and not particularly stylish or blond or […]

Dr. Scholl’s (For Her!!)

Monday, August 20th, 2007 by sbg

Good news! Dr. Scholl’s has created an alternate solution to surgically injecting collagen into the balls of the feet, for women who want to wear their 4-inch stilettos all the time. Basically, it’s their gel inserts with more cushion. Revolutionary technology such as this will enable women to wear their heels while doing yoga, mowing […]

Herbal Essences’ Body Envy

Monday, August 13th, 2007 by sbg

For a change, I want to share a commercial I DO like.
I…I’m not even sure there’s anything feminist to informally analyze, or if I just like Herbal Essences’ Body Envy  because it makes me smile. I appreciate the flip it uses, having the commercial start out with the woman with limp, helmet hair (she’s a biker) shampooing […]
