My Favorite Ad Right Now

February 3, 2009 at 12:14 pm 3 comments

Words cannot explain how much I love this ad. It is funny, cheap, and incredibly aware of how awkward it is. Look at the girl wiping the counter’s face for even more amazing-ness. 

Who the hell came up with this idea? I don’t even know what this would look like on a script. “He slowly rips off his shirt, knowing the cashier will like what she sees”.  In line with this new wave of pastiche spots, this one is definitely at the top despite Skittles’ and Starbursts’ monopoly on the genre. How the actor did this with a straight face is beyond me. But I love it, it makes me want to buy Clearsil, and that’s all that matters.

    The timing of the whole ad is spot on. I love the deadpan shirt unbuttoning. He’s the perfect mixture of gawky and attractive, so you can totally buy him as either the geek or the babe. It’s great.
