One Slap at a Time.

I love the Slap Chop commercial. I have it pretty much memorized. I love the cheese factor, love that it looks like an infomercial, love that the phrases, “You’re gonna love my nuts” and “We’re gonna make America skinny one slap at a time” made the final cut. Have you ever seen a non-parody ad like this on tv? I have not.

On the whole, I loathe commercials. I will flip around for the two minutes in between show segments in order to avoid them. The vast majority are incredibly irritating. But every once in a while, one comes out that is either a) funny, b) adorable (Pedigree ads, I’m lookin’ at you!) or c) so awful they’re hilarious. I would argue that Slap Chop falls into the first category, with ads like Loud ‘N’ Clear and Snuggie falling into group C:

Most annoying ads? My vote goes to the jewelers. Among Harold the Jewelery Buyer, Russell Oliver (probably the most egregious example of irritating commercials EVER) and those incredibly manipulative De Boers ads that maintain that women will only love men when they buy them jewellery, all of my sensibilities – and senses – are offended. What do you think? Best ads? Worst? Funniest?
