Wow. They are not trying to sell Tide, they are definitely trying to win some award.

And it works. This is very cool.

So, Tide Ultra Stain Remover is for carpet stains, is that the gist here? I mean, if it's laundry detergent, my mind can still get there from here.

I mean, it ain't exactly one of them there 'Guantanamo' leaps, now is it?

And the various condiments are all the different manner of crap that drip, spill or ooze out the sides of, say, a sandwich or hamburger?

Okey-dokey. I think I'm up to speed.

Moving forward...

I gotta say, I think this is a case of an ad campaign appealing to those who are actually IN the business more so than Joe & Judy Six-Pack.

After all, those two are still wrestling with the concept that drove Mr. Whipple to "squeeze the Charmin."

You don't believe me?

You would not believe how many nimrods, dipsticks and slack-jawed yokels, upon learning I worked in the ad biz, asked the following:

"So, this 'Whipple' character, he's squeezing the TP because... uh, because he's fantasizing, right? You know, like it's as if he's squeezing some cute housewife's butt? NO? Oh, okay. In that case, I'm not really all that sure... I, you know, GET IT."

Yep, you and Mr. Whipple.

Neither of you "gets it."

Not now.

And probably not ever.

I liked these ads - I call this sort of thing a "people pixel" ad. Good stuff to keep people looking more and being glad they did. I blogged about it on http://adconsumer.blogspot.com. If you know of some more please contact me!
