We try not to let things get to us too much around here, but every now and then, the irritation takes over. Take, for example, stupid television commercials. We aren’t in the camp that hates every TV ad out there. In fact, we think many are pretty darn creative. But for some reason, this series of Best Buy spots makes us want to smash flatscreens with a sledge hammer.What are their marketing people thinking? We want to show the world how great our customer service is, dudes. So lets put a geeky person in…THE MIDDLE OF A STADIUM! And we’ll have the stands full of a bunch of know-it-all robot-like Best Buy employees all dressed the same, loyally belting out answers to questions about electronics. Americans, even when they’re broke, love cute, stupid stuff like this. They’ll spend money for sure! Oh yeah, and we’ll call our Twitter feed “twelpforce.” Yuck. And why do they wait until the end of the thing to say that this is a Best Buy ad?[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SYH7M73H80]
