You can't loose with Terry Crews. You just... can't.

An axe murderer of ads.

It's a bit too similar to the early Terry Crews ads (I'm thinking of the one with the fractal armpit), but still, gold.

Disgrace to advertising

I'm sure you are basing such a extreme opinion on more than personal taste/opinion yeah?

I'll just assume you have access to the market research, target demos, client brief, target testing?

A disgrace to advertising, is something that doesn't work. You're implying this isn't working?

If you're in advertising, you have a lot to learn it seems. Hope that internship is working well for you.

Partially comment is based on my personal opinion but if it sells doesn't mean it's good. The problem is that I still tend to think that advertising is art of communication but these type of ads prove me wrong. I will leave you with the quote of Norman Berry: ''If sales are achieved with work which is in bad taste or is intellectual garbage, it shouldn't be applauded no matter how much it sells''. Good day

It's entertainment. It's oddvertising. It may not your taste, but it's hardly spitting on a table to get noticed.

There's a lot of intellectual garbage out there, but this... isn't one of them. Terry Crewe is no Mr.Whipple. There's a massssssive difference.
