An axe murderer of ads.

The grosseness overshadows the humor.

This is a very unique ad that I actually really enjoyed. It's definitely different than most other ads I've seen and although the topic can be considered gross, I found the ad itself to be quite funny. I had never even heard about this product before stumbling across this ad but now I'm probably going to send the ad to people I know telling them how funny it is, which I think makes it a good ad. Giving the topic of the product I think this is the best way to go about advertising since otherwise it would probably make people uncomfortable or grossed out. Humor makes the ad much more enjoyable and entertaining. The humor also makes the audience stick around to hear the end of the ad since it's entertaining to watch. I thought the script and delivery were well thought out and everything put together works really well. The holiday play on words were funny and spirited which makes it an effective holiday ad. Everything up until the very end was interesting making me aware of all the information and the website. The audience can basically be everyone although not everyone might think it was entertaining. People who are more conservative might not enjoy this ad because it brings light to a topic most people don't want to talk about. Even though people probably don't want to talk about it, this ad does a pretty good job of making people more comfortable for the topic for at least the time of the ad. I also watched the ad from last year that illustrates a theme between the two ads which is also very funny. The continuity and the uniqueness of both the older ad and this ad make this a really interesting and entertaining campaign that I would think would be successful. I think the campaign could be expanded if these ads perform well and the product can become better known. Overall, I really like this ad and think it does a great job informing the consumer and properly advertising the brand in a fun and entertaining way.
