My Dad’s Story: Dream for My Child

March 20, 2016 // 0 Comments

The only time any of us watch commercials is during the Superbowl. The other 364 days of the year, we fast forward through them and ignore them completely. I’m going to ask you to watch one commercial. Watch it all the way through. This is a commercial from MetLife Hong Kong titled, My Dad’s Story: Dream for My Child. If you don’t feel anything watching this commercial, then you have to be a robot because this is incredibly well done. This dad lies to his daughter every day ...Click for More

Dos Equis Retiring Most Interesting Man in the World

March 9, 2016 // 0 Comments

News today that Dos Equis has decided to finally pull the plug on their Most Interesting Man in the World advertising campaign. It’s about time. After nearly nine years (that’s correct, nine years) of commercials, Dos Equis is sending the most interesting man on to greener pastures. This is news that I’m sure is shocking to exactly zero people. Have you seen/heard any of these commercials lately? ¬†They were very clearly running out of material. For those of you who might be ...Click for More

Puppy Monkey Baby Commercial

We are just 1 quarter of the way through the game and I think we’ve already seen the weirdest commercial of the night. What in the hell was this from Mountain Dew? Puppy Monkey Baby Commercial Weird but strangely catchy. This will be one people are talking about ...Click for More

M&M’s Bedroom Commercial

August 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

Have you seen the most recent commercial from M&M’s? Talk about pushing the envelope. They are funny cartoon characters so for some reason, they can get away with doing whatever they want. In the most recent M&M commercial, they take on a topic that appears to be, well, swinging? There are two versions of this commercial but pay attention really to what is going on and think about this commercial with real people instead of funny cartoon characters. See what you think. ...Click for More

Coneheads State Farm Commercial

May 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

State Farm has been running commercials lately involving several old Saturday Night Live characters. They have had the Super Fans, which was seen by us here in Chicago as a betrayal since it was a commercial done with that guy from behind the cheddar curtain, Aaron Rodgers. They have also had Rob Schneider reprise his role as The Richmeister for a commercial and they have brought back Hans and Franz. State Farm just released their newest commercial involving old SNL characters. This time, they ...Click for More

New Victory Auto Wreckers Commercial

May 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of the most famous commercials in the history of Chicago television recently got an update. If you have lived in Chicago any time in the last 30 years, you have no doubt seen the famous commercial from that company at 710 E. Green in Bensenville near O’Hare, Victory Auto Wreckers. The commercial has been running continuously, with limited changes, since 1985 up until last week when a new commercial was aired to replace the classic. The new commercial is updated to let consumers know ...Click for More

Taco Bell Launches Cold War Against McDonalds

March 27, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of our favorite things to discuss here at MWTVG aside from TV shows is the commercials that are as much a part of TV as any show is. We’ve talked about commercials that are awesome (somewhat rare) and we talk about commercials that are terrible (more often than not). We just love commercials. You can click on our commercials category on the sidebar to see all the commercials we’ve talked about. It’s a big subject here. Today I’m talking about a new one from Taco Bell ...Click for More

Justin Guarini for Diet Dr. Pepper

February 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

Do you remember who was the first person to win American Idol? It was Kelly Clarkson way back in 2002. Remember who came in second? No one ever remembers the silver medalists. Second place from that first season was a guy named Justin Guarini. Following the popularity of the first season of Idol, producers tried to capitalize on the popularity of the show and quickly got the two finalists in to a disastrous movie called From Justin to Kelly which is currently ranked as the 26th worst movie of ...Click for More

The Best Commercials of Super Bowl XLIX

February 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Well, I didn’t get my wish. I was hoping that there would be some way for both teams to lose the game, but I guess there wasn’t a way for that to happen. At least Pete Carroll is sad so that’s something. So what did you all think of the commercials? I know that every year people go on and on about how this was the worst year ever so you won’t hear that from me. Overall, I thought they were ok. There were some decidedly dark commercials this year and some that I was ...Click for More

Worst Christmas Commercials 2014

December 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

I don’t know what it is about this year’s crop of Christmas commercials. Have I just had less time to watch TV? Do I watch everything on DVR so commercials get skipped? Are advertisers finally getting the idea that we hate them? I don’t know what it is but this year, there doesn’t seem to have been as many commercials that really sucked this year. I’ve been talking to people asking them for feedback and most I’ve talked to have a hard time giving more than 1 ...Click for More

Sainsbury Christmas Ad

December 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

Generally at Christmas, we talk about the worst commercials that we get bombarded by regularly throughout the season. The worst offenders are always jewelry companies who seem to enjoy making the worst commercials possible. There have been some bad ones this year (although not nearly as many) for sure but I want to show you one today that is simply fantastic. This is the Sainsbury Christmas ad for 2014. We here in the colonies don’t have Sainsbury so this isn’t a commercial most ...Click for More

Before They Were Famous – Megan Mullaly & John Goodman

December 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

We love commercials here at MWTVG. Well, it’s more of a love/hate relationship. For ever commercial we love, there are probably 10 or 20 that we hate. We are in that time of year too that really brings out the worst in marketing that subjects us to the most awful commercials. We will be doing a list of the worst tomorrow but for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane. Here is a commercial for McDonald’s Egg McMuffin from 1983. You might recognize the star of the commercial. ...Click for More

Ford Vampire Kid

October 31, 2014 // 0 Comments

We love commercials around here both good and bad. We watch a ton of TV and not all of it can be on DVR so we have seen our fair share of commercials. I found this one today on the internet and being that it’s Halloween, I thought it was a good one to share with you. This is a Spanish language Ford commercial that covers both Halloween and The Day of the Dead. I thought it was a good one. Ford Vampire Kid You know what else was funny to me about this commercial? It seems that no matter ...Click for More

Call of Duty Commercial Directed by Peter Berg

October 30, 2014 // 0 Comments

Yes. I am a big video game nerd. It’s one of the reasons we changed our tagline for the site to allow us to also cover pop culture and not just TV. I haven’t been playing the Call of Duty franchise for a while (at one point, I was in the top 10% of world rankings and yes, I’m an adult) because it hasn’t been very good, but I’m pretty interested in the newest Call of Duty that is being released next week. There was a new commercial released today for Call of Duty: ...Click for More

State Farm SNL Commercials

September 13, 2014 // 0 Comments

Being that we are from Chicago and that we are Chicago Bears fans, we, as a rule, hate the Green Bay Packers. We hate everything about the Packers from their mouth-breathing fans to their stupid field that for some reason people treat like a cathedral. No one from Green Bay escapes our scorn, including Aaron Rodgers. While we dislike Aaron Rodgers and his school boy good looks and incredible ability to destroy the Bears, we have to tip our cap to the commercials he has been taking part in for ...Click for More
