I concur that it doesn't really compare to Bud Light, but I believe individuals are growing weary of the constant display of woke virtue-signaling. What may have elicited a mere eye roll in the past is now a significant source of conflict. People simply want it to end.
I have some doubts about the timing of the complaint. It seems a bit suspicious that they waited two months after the ad aired to voice their concerns. Many are claiming that they are merely "following in Bud Light's footsteps," but it should be noted that these ads were released simultaneously. The Bud Light Dylan Mulvany partnership was in March too.
The idea that Miller wants our help to eradicate the evidence of their past ads is funnier than the ad.
It's funny because it's true.
I'm a huge Parks & Recreation fan and that was my immediate thought. I think it was a deliberate nod.
Also, I first though that it was 100-year old Mom, Dad and their three sons in that birthday ad, which is too kinky for my tastes.
Great idea, but the execution is too fashionable. Fashion is not sexy.
The idea and two weeks of filming and "the making of" movie set me up for disappointment. The film is good, but I was expecting mindbogglingly great.
Now that other people have begun saying dude, they'll have to continue with the "Dude" dude meeting a "Dude"-girl. I will not rest until I see that ad.
Agreed, this is really amusing for such a small joke. It's all in the execution. Reminds me of "whassup" in that I could easily picture this on a director's reel without a brand (yet) attached too it.
The PIA ad is fantastic. When was the last time you saw a newspaper ad with such dramatic imagery? I see rubbish most days.
Yes, what tod.brody mentioned. But the thing that feels odd is that an ad agency does this, it smells of triyng to get good PR.
