Kristen Schall's T-Mobile ads were criminally underrated
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.
That 84-Lumber commercial... I kinda see what they were trying to do, but how does that sell lumber? I mean, that was great for their brand awareness, but I didn't know I needed a dedicated lumber vendor. Or is the Super Bowl a great place to target contractors?
The commercial that got the biggest reaction in the room was the Stranger Things S2 trailer, which, its a trailer so it kinda doesn't count in the ad-wars, but regardless I'm still hyped from seeing it last night.
