I Am Annoyed

Have you seen this commercial for Google Nexus?



How is selling a product through the demise of someone's beloved pet the right way to go in advertising?

I mean, what genius thought that this is a brilliant ad?

It annoys and disgusts me.

And yes, the ad works, because it makes me talk about the product, but no, it doesn't make me want to buy it. It makes me want to send nasty letters to the company about how terrible this ad is.

Hrm yeah they could have done that one a little differently and made it work. I could see going home because a pet was sick and then having things end with it being okay but the way it was done here eh yeah doesn't quite work for me either.

It was dubious approach, to say the least!

I agree with you. Not a good ad. What were they thinking?

Even the one in the UK with a cat jumping off a high tin roof and two kids laughing I find in dubious taste.
