Mr. BFS and I have cable and we love our DVR. That means that I generally do not watch commercials. Almost anything trying to sell me something that I didn’t want to start with is ignored completely. BUT, I do love funny. And I do not mind watching a commercial if it is dang hilarious.
Gotta Love the Funny
Two examples of super funny, worth watching for a quick chuckle commercials are below. Please note, I am not an affiliate of Poo Pourri or AT&T Digital Life. Altogether, this will take up about 3.5 minutes of your life, but you will be laughing most of that time.
Thanks to these commercials and reviews, I will be buying a bottle of Poo Pourri (and will probably review it here, minus the British accent). I actually emailed them to get a free bottle for me to review, but they have been inundated with similar requests ever since this commercial went live. That’s pretty cool. I also looked into AT&T Digital Life and we may get it installed down the line since it is a larger expense than a $10-$15 bottle of Poo Pourri. Overall, these are two products that I had heard of before, but I hadn’t looked into them at all until I saw their You Tube commercials.
That’s amazing marketing at work. I received a BBA with honors in Marketing. I chose that major specifically so I could help create ads like this one day – ads so humorous that the fact that they are selling something wouldn’t be held against them. I obviously went in another direction, but I can still appreciate a job well done. Here’s a big high five to both groups of creators for the commercials above!
What do you think? Are funny sales pitches like these way better than the normal stuff to you too?
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 a year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, a rental home, and professional pet sitting. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page - I hope they help you too. This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too! Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
