One Of The Funniest S#*$r B$@l Ads You'll See This Year Makes Fun Of NFL Trademarks
from the big-game-or-whatever dept
Wait, hey! What the hell? I said it's [editor redacted] time! Oh, come on. I can't say [editor redacted]? Fine, what about a euphemism, like [editor redacted]? No, can't say that either? Maybe [editor redacted]? Damn it, this is stupid. I'm talking about something that rhymes with "Pooper Hole" (heh, got you, editor!).
Fortunately for our entertainment sensibilities, Samsung decided this year to combine a distaste for trademark stupidity and our concept of advertising being content in this gem of a spot.
Pictured: million dollar passive aggression
Yes, Samsung has decided to do a game-that-shan't-be-named commercial making fun of how the NFL is overly aggressive with their trademarks. I'd call Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd's delivery "brilliant", but that'd be like referring to Natalie Portman as "mildly attractive", and even I have some damned sense, people. The NFL likes to toss around a great deal of words and pretend like they're true even when they're not, especially when it comes to trademarks. This spot uses the absurdity of it all to highlight how aggressive they are. Maybe it will even open up an eye or two to the silliness of the ever-growing permission culture.
