Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields


Frankly, I’m outraged that my favorite didn’t make it to the list of Firefox Flicks that will be advertised on TV. Before you cringe, note the similarities between this ad and other highly successful (if annoying) ad campaigns:

  • Simple, memorable, and annoying repetitive meme (cf. “Where’s the beef?”, “Whassuuuuuup,” and “AFLAC!”)
  • Not-so-subtle satirical digs at competitor (cf. just about any Apple ad)
  • Oddly disturbing visuals (cf. Budweiser lizards, monkeys abusing human employee)
