I've been working in the TV business for over a decade. And in that time, I've seen a lot of commercials. Some are pretty good... Most are amazingly mediocre... But a choice few are extraordinarily terrible. In fact, some are so remarkably disastrous that they deserve to be laughed at and ridiculed for the crimes against intelligence that they are. They should also be studied, dissected, and analyzed so that -- hopefully -- future generations of commercial producers will learn a lesson and stop assaulting our frontal lobes with inane twaddle.
That is why Commercial Disasters is here... to shame producers into making better ads and to make fun of those who don't. Judging by the number of commercial disasters out there, I have my work cut out for me. As you'll see in the coming weeks, no strata of the advertising spectrum is immune from making disastrous commercials. From the smallest local operation to the largest multi-national corporation, they all make some terrible, terrible commercials. That's why you and I are here.
