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

Have you seen the Travel Wisconsin Airplane Commercial? Our fans come from all around the globe so I’m sure that most of you probably have not seen this commercial.  Here it is for those who haven’t seen it. Travel Wisconsin Airplane Commercial   What did you think of the commercial? Overall, I think this is a pretty good commercial.

Let’s Get Zesty With The Zesty Guy

June 28, 2013 // 0 Comments

It is important to note that although there is an extremely strong resemblance, the actor in the new Kraft Dressing commercials is not MIDWEST MO, rather ANDERSON DAVIS or “The Zesty Guy” as throngs of his female fans lovingly refer to him.  Men, take note:  This is exactly how women want to be treated.  Women take note:  This doesn’t give you an excuse to not make us sandwiches regularly.  Because now you can top off our sandwiches with a little Kraft dressing! If you ...Click for More

Most Racist Commercial… EVER?

May 1, 2013 // 0 Comments

EDIT #3:  Found one from a news broadcast. EDIT #2:  MIDWEST MARK here again… Pepsi worked quickly to pull as many of these as they could.  I will continue looking for a permenant link that actually works… stay tuned! EDIT (Midwest Mike): Pepsi is trying to pull this video off the internet completely.  The original video that Midwest Mark posted was pulled by YouTube after a complaint from Pepsi.  I went and found another.  They are trying to get ahead of the storm of ...Click for More

Best Superbowl Commercials 2013

February 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

After an extremely long Superbowl game that seemed to consist of more blackout than game time, and now in honor of the presentation of the Vince Lombardi trophy, I want to crown the best Superbowl commercial of 2013. Let me start by saying that the commercials this year were largely piss-poor.  Go Daddy, for instance was downright uncomfortable (especially the psoriasis and smacking sounds) while I thought that Bud Light’s Stevie Wonder voodoo commercials were pretty darn lame.  Coke ...Click for More

Midwest Mark’s Superbowl Special

February 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

Freshly returned from a weekend getaway up north, I am now all prepped up and excited for SUPERBOWL XLVII.  To be honest I am hardly interested in the game itself, much more jazzed about the yearly batch of over-the-top ads brought by the likes of Budweiser, Doritos, Coca-Cola and XYZ Car Manufacturer.  There’s also bound to be some huge movie trailer premieres (IRON MAN 3!!!), and I will be sure to keep you updated with the latest and greatest during the game. Seeing as ad time during ...Click for More

Classic Commercials – Mentos

December 29, 2012 // 1 Comment

For a brief stint in the 90’s, we were treated to a series of commercials that proved to us that no matter how much of a certified idiot you are, popping 1 – 2 Mentos will immediately cure all of your ills.  If you have ever seen the movie LIMITLESS with BRADLEY COOPER, I would imagine his little genius pills to be an ultra-concentrated form of Mentos candy. So I wonder what stunts you can’t pull with Mentos?  Home invasion?  Bank robbery?  Ending world hunger?  Come to ...Click for More

The Usell Guy…

November 5, 2012 // 6 Comments

A dire warning to all Midwest TV Guys (and Gals) out there: The moment that you might forget to fast-forward through the commercials, this guy might rear his ugly head and sap away your intelligence at the rate of approximately 1.5 IQ points per second.  To the point that you find yourself yelling quasi-cogent obscenities at the television.  Like I was doing earlier today. Here’s my recommendations, Usell guy… tuck in your shirt.  Take off that stupid vest and please remove the ...Click for More

Just Saying…

October 10, 2012 // 0 Comments

One of my all time favorite commercials Ah, concussion humor.  I suspect the NFL has cracked on Snickers and made them stop running this add.  I know it’s 20 years old, maybe update it with “I’m Edward” or “I’m Jacob”.  Those are things ...Click for More
