Annoying Klondike Commercials

Filed under: marketing — Tags: , — montageman @ 2:23 am

Klondike sponsored a good portion of the Thursday night TV tonight on NBC, so during My Name is Earl and The Office we were subjected to two of the more sexist, chauvinistic, and sophomoric ad campaigns that I’ve seen in a long time.  Basically, the full focus of these ads is men, but not all men, rather men who feel as if talking to their partner is a nuisance or that women are somehow inferior to men.  These commercials sent me back 50 years to the days of these ads.  I’m not a marketing exec or anything, so I don’t know how or why these commercials even made it to the air, but I imagine that they’ll work.  Oh well, all I can do is not buy Klondikes.
