Perfect hairstyling accessory to go with Flowbee!I so longed for our family to get a flowbee. My mom started cutting our hair when I was in Jr. High (now known as middle school) She had many talents, but hair cutting was not amongst them. She did it to save money because my asshole father was always pumping money into get rich quick schemes. Had Nigerian Scams existed then, Dad woulda been all over it. :-k Fucker shoulda invested in flowbees.

This is for real, it ran on Tru TV during Hardcore Pawn :lol: It's not really the idea, it's the production values.[BBvideo 425,350:e765g7ky][/BBvideo]

Orlylicious, you must not watch a lot of sports programming. That commercial runs constantly. And yes, it's very funny.

That might win the creepystakes. The Folgers Happy Mornings campaign was developed at Saatchi & Saatchi New York, by creatives Leo Premutico and Jan Jacobs, executive creative director Tony Granger and executive producer Sheld J. Levy.[/break1]com/daily/2006/folgers-happy-morning/]http://theinspirationroom.com/daily/200 ... y-morning/
Edit: And more creepiness rom the campaign. [/break1]adweek.com/adfreak/folgers-print-ads-almost-weird-tv-18794]http://www.adweek.com/adfreak/folgers-p ... d-tv-18794

What?
Edit: There is also a Jewish Mingle and a Muslim Mingle. Are those creepy too?
Edit: Well, bust my buttons, there's even a Catholic Mingle and on Christian Mingle you can sort by denomination in case just any old Christian won't do.
I haven't seen commercials for Jewish Mingle, Muslim Mingle or Catholic Mingle. But I would think they would be creepy if Moses, Mohammed or the Pope were doing the picking for the marriage candidates.We have JDate, but we don't do commercials. Big Times Square Billboards, yes. TV Commercials, not so much

Can't manage to copy and paste the link (hell, I can barely.type on this phone), but Lil' Cesears "Bite Bite Sip Sip Combo Mambo" as is annoying and offensive.to me. Can't quite put my finger on the offensive part except maybe a latino stereotype?
