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

Amazon Fire Makes Me Burn with Rage

September 4, 2014 // 0 Comments

We post a lot about commercials, good and bad. I’ve been on a tear lately going after Wendy’s because I really hate that red head they are using as the new Wendy. My campaign has done nothing to stop the tide of horror coming from the folks at Wendy’s but that won’t stop me. I saw this commercial recently and I immediately forgot about all the other commercials I hate. This commercial for the Amazon Fire is right now my #1 most hated commercial on TV. If they were ...Click for More

Wendy’s Continues Murdering Music

August 3, 2014 // 0 Comments

I asked last week if Wendy’s hated us. The answer I got from our fans is yes, yes they do hate us. Guess what? Wendy’s don’t care. They are doubling down on the hate. I think even they know their commercials suck but they don’t care. They want it to hurt. Here is the latest travesty from Wendy’s. Wendy’s To Be With You Holy hell. That was awful. I want to know who over at Mr. Big gave them permission to use their song for this commercial. How much were you ...Click for More

Cheerios Does Dads Justice

August 3, 2014 // 0 Comments

In what just might be the first commercial of it’s kind in the history of TV, Cheerios does dads justice like they haven’t seen since the 1950s. For decades now, whenever a dad is shown in a TV commercial, he is always an idiot. Always. He doesn’t know how to take care of his kids, he can’t do anything right around the house, and he couldn’t feed himself if his life depended on it. According to advertising executives, dads are true morons who can only be saved by ...Click for More

25 Classic TV Commercials

July 27, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s been long overdue, but it’s time for a list! We haven’t done one in a while and we know you have missed them. We did a list a while back that was our most popular ever. It was a list of classic Chicago TV commercials. We know how much people love commercials and we do too. Because we have fans that come from all over the country, and the world believe it or not, we don’t want to exclude them with just Chicago commercials. There are so many classics that have run ...Click for More

Does Wendy’s Hate Us? Yes they do.

July 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve written before about how much I hate that Wendy’s has replaced the actual Wendy Thomas with a hotter version of Wendy (and I’m not alone). Wendy’s for a time was running commercials with Wendy Thomas, you know, the woman after the whole entire company is named, but decided that she didn’t have the right look for TV. ┬áHere is Wendy Thomas. Nothing out of the ordinary as far as I can see. Just an average woman doing a TV commercial. She’s not Hollywood ...Click for More

Metallica This is SportsCenter

This is my second post in a single day that involves the New York Yankees. I haven’t read the Bible in a long time but I am pretty sure that I remember a section in there that says if anyone discusses the Yankees 3 times in a single day, that the end of the world will be upon us. We are 2/3 of the way there with this post. I will try not to post another Yankees article today but I can’t make any promises. Please get your affairs in order just in case or, if you are like me, prepare ...Click for More

RE2PECT for Derek Jeter

July 15, 2014 // 0 Comments

In the Summers before my son left for college, he and I would take a trip a year to go see a different baseball stadium each year. I loved those trips because I got to have my teenage son captive in a car for several hours where we could just talk. Those of you with kids know how difficult it is to get time with them so you know how special time like that can be. We drove up to Minnesota for one of our visits to see a game during the Twins’ last season in the Metrodome. They were playing ...Click for More
