Irony Or At Least I Think It Is

November 28, 2012 // 1 Comment

Look, I understand that I posted yesterday about how annoying product placement ads have become.  But still, in the spirit of Christmas, I feel the need to share interesting gift ideas when I come across them.  Sure enough, I’ve got one that can’t miss: Irony, Or At Least I Think It Is Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good ...Click for More

Cam Newton NFL Play 60

November 26, 2012 // 0 Comments

Have you missed me today?  Holy cow does it suck having to go back to work.  I’d much rather be doing this all day long.  Two things need to happen here.  Either I need to win the Powerball Jackpot or you folks need to start sharing this blog with your friends so you don’t have to wait for me to get home from work before I post. I’ve posted several times about commercials that I hate so I want to give you one that I like a lot.  It’s an NFL Play 60 commercial with ...Click for More

Who in Run D.M.C. is Responsible For This?

November 21, 2012 // 4 Comments

Remember how I said that Christmas time sucks because of the commercials?  I just saw one tonight that not only sucks, but ruins the hell out of Run D.M.C.  Watch this commercial and see if you can pinpoint the moment where someone in Run D.M.C. completely sold out:   Jam Master Jay is no longer with us so he for sure can’t be held responsible for this.  I want to know, who in Run D.M.C. is responsible for this?  Do retailers hold nothing sacred any ...Click for More

The 5th Circle of Hell: It’s Christmas Time!

November 18, 2012 // 0 Comments

So I’m sitting on my couch in MWTVG headquarters today, November 18, not even yet to Thanksgiving, watching football and I find myself already irritated with Christmas commercials. There are two types of commercials that I really hate at Christmas (if mid-November can now be considered Christmas) time.  First, any and all jewelry commercials and second, car commercials, specifically those that come with a big giant ...Click for More

Claire Forlani Makes Me Thirsty

November 10, 2012 // 2 Comments

As a MWTVG, I’m here to tell you that commercials are as much a part of TV as the shows are.  I love talking about commercials and their history both good and bad.  They really are fascinating. Dewar’s has just begun a new ad campaign that all of a sudden makes me want to drink some Scottish Whiskey.  They haven’t run any commercials since 2007 and they have been getting their butts kicked by other whiskey maker’s Jameson and Johnny Walker.  Their new ad campaign ...Click for More

Budweiser’s Leon – Still Funny

November 8, 2012 // 0 Comments

Anyone recognize the guy in this commercial?  No?  That’s Leon of Budweiser fame.  You may remember Leon from a series of fantastic Budweiser commercials in the early 2000’s highlighting the arrogance of professional athletes.  I have talked about some bad commercials and some disgusting ones on MWTVG, let’s talk about some funny ones now.  Here are some of Leon’s best:       You might not know this about Leon, but he is played by actor Nigel ...Click for More

The Most Racist Commercial on TV

October 13, 2012 // 10 Comments

I apologize for the quality of this video as it is the only one I can find on the internet and the reason why might be apparent to you when you see this.  The person that posted this on You Tube actually thinks it’s a funny commercial.  I don’t know if he thinks it’s ironically funny or funny because he is a Klan member.  You be the judge: Really Discover Card?  This commercial cleared through your marketing department without anyone raising an ...Click for More

Callous Clear

October 12, 2012 // 5 Comments

It’s 2am here at Midwest Mike’s house and I’m up watching weird TV.  One of the joys of late night TV is the commercials and infomercials that you get to see.  I saw this commercial tonight on the Destination America channel and it immediately rose to the top of the list of most disturbing commercials I have ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Callous Clear:     Ok.  First of all.  Who is going to buy a product from a late night TV commercial THAT ...Click for More
