Who's Doing Better Ad Reviews Than I Am?

This is the first edition of many posts featuring posts from people who are just straight up better at what I'm trying to do. Today's post comes from the absurdly terrific; it's called "7 Insane Ads That Have No Idea What They're Selling." Here's a piece and an excerpt:

The tune should be familiar to anyone who enjoys Calypso music or watched Beetlejuice recently; but perhaps emboldened by the lipstick and fake breasts, this guy makes the brave character choice to inflect all the wrong syllables and sing completely out of key. This practice is frequently mistaken as being "lighthearted" and/or "funny," but in actuality makes us want to punch a cat in the balls.

It's a very entertaining read throughout and they've stumbled upon some really inane ads from Sprite, Xbox, and, of course, France.
