We talk a lot about commercials around here because they are such a huge part of TV. Some commercials are great and some make you want to burn buildings down of the companies that are airing them (I’m looking at you GEICO).
There are new commercials out now that if you were watching any football over the weekend have probably started to see. The Ron Burgundy Dodge commercials are very funny and only a tiny bit about actually selling any Dodge products (unless you are buying a car based on the glove box). This is a fantastic cross promotion designed to make Dodge hip and cool while getting the word out about Anchorman 2 that is due out at Christmas. These commercials have just started running but they have reportedly filmed 70 different commercials so I’m sure they will be airing from now until the movie premieres. I’m cool with that. I can’t get enough of Ron Burgundy. It’s one of my favorite Will Ferrell characters. If you haven’t seen these commercials yet, here they are for you:
And here is the most recent trailer for Anchorman 2. I can’t wait for this movie.
