Basically, It’s All About Dicks

11/07/2011 · 100 comments

in How Did My Life Come To This, Psychological Warfare, What Is Wrong With You?

This week, I’ve been assaulted by several obscenely ridiculous slogans.

  • For Craftsman Tools: “Trust, in your hands.” You mean your dick, right? It’s your dick. I nailed it. 
  • For a laundry service: “Intelligent Laundry Systems.” I…um…do you mean women? Well, now I’m not a feminist.
  • For a trucking company: “Delivering the present, railing the future.” I think you and I have very different ideas about what “railing the future” means.

So I figure, this slogan bullshit can’t be that fucking hard. If you can just do dick jokes the way that states do, I CAN BE A MILLIONAIRE TOMRORROW.

  • Cucumbers: “Training whores since 1852.”
  • Apple: “A sentient phone means nerds are never alone.”
  • Sharpies: “Need to draw a penis? Sharpie’s got the tip for you.”
  • Government Web Sites: “Working links aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.”
  • Smart Car: “The highway’s first legal moving target.”
  • Bronzer: “Helping white girls look dirty.”
  • Hot Topic: “Angst and defiance with purchase of every ironic t-shirt.”
  • Ambien: “Nothing says forget your worries, and probably everything else, like Ambien.”
  • Southwest: “Wanna get uncomfortably close to a total stranger?”
  • Golden Corral: “Of course our chocolate fountain is health department cleared.”
  • Urban Outfitters: “$5.99 ramen means social awareness.”
  • Two And  A Half Men: “Fuck you, we make money.”
  • Winchester: “You, too, can be a militant extremist!”
  • Nathan’s Hot Dogs: “Takeru Kobayashi can swallow a whole hot dog. What can you swallow?”
  • Blue Eye Shadow: “For when slut just isn’t enough.”
  • Taco Bell: “78% meat in one taco is more than Kris Jenner has in hers.”
  • Public Restrooms: “Like playing the ponies with mucus diseases!”
  • Luby’s: “Ask us about our grandchildren.”
  • Wal-Mart: “Smiles are free, but human rights violations come at minimum wage.”
  • Vlasic: “Nothing mimes fellatio like pickles!”
  • IBM: “Founded with Nazis.”
  • Pantyhose: “Your legs will feel like greenhouses–all day long!”
  • Denny’s: “End up here!”
  • Playboy: “Beat off and try not to think about our Cryptkeeper CEO.”
  • Tampax: “Sapping your dignity one sparkly applicator at a time.”
  • Summer’s Eve: “You’ll never scrub the shame away, but we can help.”

I’m a goddamn advertising goldmine.

What’s the weirdest/worst slogan you’ve ever heard? Did I miss any? Do you have better ideas than I do?

Favorite Comment From The Last Post:
From Andi: “When I clicked on the link to watch the videos, the first ad to come up for Drunk Kitchen is “Stop Drinking Now,” advertising an 8-week detox program. On the Canada travel one, it’s “What Really Attracts Men — 9 Surprising Mistakes That Women Make.” Hannah is fricking hilarious, but Google Ads made me pee my pants.”

“Have a happy period!” always makes me want to put my fist through the fucking wall. I am losing huge, bleeding chunks of uterine lining through my vagina in the most painful way possible short of outright hemorrhaging. Your cheery words and brightly colored little packages are NOT going to help anything besides hopefully not having to do extra laundry.

HA! Soon as I posted I saw we voiced our anger at the same ad! Fucking Tampax…

I’m at a loss for funny slogans.
But I really feel like further looking around this office will help me.

I remember the commerical for herpes that circulates whenever an outbreak happens… “there are just *some* presents you don’t want to suprise your partner with”
because clearly that shit comes wrapped up in a box.

My favorite is “TAMPAX: Have a Happy Period”. Indeed. . .for nothing fills my fecund heart with glee more than uterine cramping, PMS, and expelling liver chunks the size of a small honey badger out of my cervix, you ignorant twatweasels. I’ve thought a few more truthful advertisements might be:

TROJANS: Just add meat.

OREGON: Where suicide is redundant.

SUMMER’S EVE: Does somebody smell tuna?

NIKE: Just buy the shoes, you fat fuck!

Yeah, there’s a reason I no longer work in advertising.

They need to include a fat blunt. Even then, they need to take the standpoint that it’s going to help you out. It’s not like you’re going to be skipping around the house and humming a tune with sunshine pouring out of your ass.

BlackLOG November 7, 2011 at 6:55 am

AA couple of favourite advertising slogans – these are UK ones so you might not have got them in the states

“Nothing acts as fast as Anadin”
Which is the reason why I save my money and take nothing whenever I have a headache….

Turtle Wax Ice – ”Wax at the Speed of Ice”
According to Wikipedia ice moves at about 30 inches an hour – personally I think it’s much slower, I came to this conclusion after monitoring the Ice in my freezer for 24 hours (what can I say it was a slow day) it had hardly even moved a millimetre (see told you it was a slow day). But hang on a second since my car has about as much chance of being cleaned by me as Greece paying back its debt I could ask Mrs B to stop nagging and tell her the car cleaning process is underway using my new found excuse “Turtle wax ice” and at current rate of progress is due to be completed by the end of the next Ice age……

In defence of the advertising industry we would not have the brilliant TV show Madmen if they weren’t out there trying to rip off us consumers….

Now if I was an ad executive I would be using slogans like

“MacDonald’s – Life’s already short, why prolong it by eating healthily….”

“Alzheimer’s – when you really want to forget….”

“Greenpeace – We make futile gestures so you don’t have to”

“Incontinence pants – Anytime is shit time“

In fact I could probably work on a whole campaign for Incontinence pants

“Incontinence pants – Why wait”

“when you have filled your boots it’s probably time for Incontinence pants ”

“Incontinence pants – like having your own portable toilet”

Wax at the speed of ice? What in the fucking fuck is that? That just makes me think of getting a brazilian in which I will immediately need ice thereafter.

Mandi E. November 7, 2011 at 7:22 am

There are two noteworthy advertising campaigns out right now that are so ridiculous that I cry a little every time they’re on. Whether that’s from shame or hilarity varies, depending on the day and whether PMS is involved.

The first is a diaper commercial. The toddler is wandering around in pampers meant to look like denim, and the tag line of the commercial is – wait for it – “the most stylish thing you ever pooped in!” Holy Redneck Rollerderby, y’all.

The other commercial shows a stick-like object silhouetted against a blue background and it’s outlining all the technical specifications of the stick when suddenly! The lights flash! onto…A PREGNANCY TEST! Tagline: The most technologically advanced thing you will ever pee on.”

Choke me with a double headed marital aid…

More importantly, WHY WHY WHY is your commercial on when most kids are still awake so they can ask their parents WHY THE GUY KEEPS LOOKING IN HIS PANTS, MOM???? and WHY IS HE PUTTING THE BLOW DRYER IN HIS PANTS, MOM?!?!????????????!

Fuck you, Safe Auto. PS – It wasn’t even funny. If a room of 20-something males don’t find you funny, you’re not funny. If you’re not first, you’re last. THAT’s funny. Bitches.

She brings a whole new visual to beef curtains, that’s for sure. As in floor to ceiling curtains. If her vagina doesn’t reach up and slap her after this baby is born, it’s probably because it can’t reach her from the floor, because you know that shit is gonna just fall out.

And that Golden Corral chocolate fountain commercial drives me nuts. One person says “I’ve loved chocolate since I was a little kid…” WHAT? What a rare person.

One of my faves of all time was a PSA. It was a black background and then a gloved hand comes on and points toward the camera. THe tag? “Are YOU afraid of a prostate exam!” (Well, I am NOW.)

Here are a few slogans for you:

Alzheimer’s: Proving that your brain is God’s etch-a-sketch.

Do you have issues with feminine odor? Take a fucking shower, you pig!

Bladder leakage: Just one more thing you can blame on your kids.

Universal Cab Company in Charlotte, NC has all these light blue/dark blue cabs running around with “U COME FIRST” in large letters across the top of the back window, accompanied by an armless handshake underneath the caption. In a recent article, it states “our slogan and approach since 1992.”

Herman Cain: Even his balls have balls…just ask his employees. Vote Cain!

PS – Please, no one really vote Cain.

I think the republican pool is doing a spectacular job of shoving dicks in their mouths, but Herman’s doing it both ways!

So the new thing over here in Vienna is that people are finally waking up to the fact we have immigrants. So now they’re channeling lots of money into advertising about it.

Yesterday I saw a sign that said “Pimp My Integration”

It’s for the cool immigrants, who want to get integrated in their pimpy way.

Unless I’m misreading it. Usually a large portion of Austria’s immigrants become hookers. So maybe it’s an immigrant hooker management training program? Maybe they really mean pimp in the pimp way and not in the other pimp way. You think?

Pimp My Integration?

That. Wow. That is really something special. I have no words, but many t-shirt ideas.

Did you know that UPS’ slogan “What Can Brown Do For You” was once in the Advertising Walk of Fame?

You know what brown does for me? It colors my shit and bores me to tears.

There’s an Advertising Walk of Fame?

Yes, and let me tell you, the “Where’s the Beef” lady has like three stars on that walk. Also, Sarah McLachlan for all those dead dog things.

I see the message: “Railing the future…to get our company pregnant with money!”

I spit all over my dashboard driving by that truck. There’s a guy working in their marketing department that’s getting away with murder.

That’s why they have pictures on the menu–all you have to do is point.
