I’m trying to blog more again for whatever reason and I’m starting a new feature on the blog I’m calling Pete Magete: Advertising Critic. You’ll get to read about all of the rants I make on a regular basis in which I yell at the TV like a crazy person who thinks the marketing professionals who make these ads can hear me on the other end. Let’s go to the tape for the first edition of this new concept.
Taco Bell hit the nail on the head with this one. If you’re a guy and can’t relate to this ad then either you’ve never had a girlfriend or your “type” is anorexic chicks. Nothing more infuriating than asking a girl if she wants anything, and she insists she doesn’t, but as soon as you’re digging in she’s asking for a bite. Her comeback will always be something like “well I’m not hungry enough for my own” or “I just want to try it”. Hey, sweetheart, I’m not poor. I can afford to buy you your own. If you only wanted a bite, bite your own and throw it away for all I care. Hell, I’ll probably eat your leftovers. But I know what they’re thinking, they don’t have the self control to stop at just a bite if I bought them their own. Ahh, the joys of being in a relationship. Alright, back to watching the All Star game and not sharing any of my food, because if you haven’t guessed it yet by now, I’m flying solo right now. Free and clear. Living the dream. Stripped to the waist, eating a brick of cheese the size of a car battery.
Life is good.
