Rochester's Most Baffling Commercials # 1


  1. People who bought children's military costumes swaggering through a building that looks like an agoraphobic's attic. The prop manager must have taken hours digging through the garbage of Applebee's and TGIF to complete the festive scenario.

  2. Now cut to the demon having epileptic seizures (or perhaps that's Golemn doing a Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure impression).

  3. Before the magical commercial ends you can hear pick up lines from a girl who clearly drank too much carmel coffee creamer and was washing it down with pure Nyquil.

  4. Finish down the wide awake nightmare with garish pics of seventies rockers who probably wasted their fortune from drinking varnish while injecting Huggy Bear softener into their blood*. That, my friends, is how you sell rock music.

Improv lesson: While this commercial scared me clear away from sailors and drugs; it attracted a lot of customers to the HOG. Sometimes the straight and narrow is safest for plot, but not the most creative. Think outside of the epileptic demon box.
* Huggy Bear does not condone or condemn the use of their chemicals as habit forming substances
