Ingestion Erection

CHECK OUT THIS WEEK’S AD HERE.

Mikael takes us on a sexual odyssey after watching Mellow Mushroom Pizza Baker’s poorly executed “Clinically Proven 30” tv ad.

This ad, an awkwardly-delivered parody of a Viagra commercial, does so many things wrong, we barely have time to list them all. From creepy threesome doctors to the tragic demise of Herb and Carnie, this episode is rife with psychoanalysis and general fetishisms.

With some context, we manage to make this into something serviceable, although…do you really need edgy ads to sell pizza? EVERYONE ALREADY LIKES PIZZA.

Business Surfers

CHECK OUT THIS WEEK’S AD HERE.

Welcome to inADmissible, a podcast about bad ads and how to fix them! In our inaugural episode, we talk about Lexus Canada’s misguided dramatic venture: “Elevated.”

We go over the multiple ways this ad completely fails to sell us a Lexus including the strange multi-timeline narrative, the inexcusable and baffling lack of actual surfing, and the absence of featured features.

Like in all inADmissible episodes, we build this ad back up from nothing, crafting it into something that might actually succeed in selling the product it was intended to sell. Unfortunately, this leads us down some dark paths such as a sinister murder plot and a hail Mary toss at the back of a Suicide Prevention playbook..
