Commercials! On radio and TV in Great Falls. Love ’em and hate ’em. The Ferrin’s radio spot drives me nuts, because I can’t make out all of the words in the jingle (Discover Ferrin’s ?quality?, etc). The Cartridge World ad is on both radio and TV, and I know most of you can repeat the opening lines verbatim, and with emphasis (I refuse! Absolutely no way! Not while I buy the office supplies!). I know that there are professional awards that the ad agencies & creators compete for, but I wonder if we ought to have a “people’s choice” awards ceremony for local commercials.
Which reminds me: um…how many of you have seen the latest TV ad for Pierce auto? UPDATE: yep – as wolfpack noted, it’s the one where Dave Pierce is standing on the neck of an “Arab.” That’s the implication, at least.
MORE: you’ll never believe who was behind me in line at Starbucks mid-morning…and yes, I did ask him about the ad.
