Ad parodies that will make you laugh
THE NOW video – It wasn’t long after TV commercials came along that people realized how ridiculous and funny most of them were. Thus the parody was born and it’s only been better and better since then. The latest to hit the web is a fake Amazon commercial that promotes yesterday shipping. Gmail does a parody/prank every April, and one of their best is still the gmail motion, because it’s just so ridiculous. Sometimes totally fake ads can be the funniest ones around, and the spot for The Neck Basket certainly fills that quota. When the Snuggie first premiered back in the day, a bunch of people definitely thought it was a parody. The overly excited actors in the ads spawned plenty of great parodies, but perhaps none quite as snarky as The WTF Blanket version. Beating them all out though, is an oldie but a goodie from “SNL” that uses Sam Waterston as the spokesperson for ‘Old Glory Robot Insurance’. Fingers crossed that these parody ads keep coming--they are pure pure gold.
