O-Face

Do these ads appeal to ANYONE? Is this one supposed to appeal to KIDS? LAME.

Three Olives Vodka

Editorial Note: I am not a big fan of vodka (I have had an unopened bottle of Ketel One in my freezer for at least 6 years). But if I HAD to buy vodka, I think I'd choose any brand but this one.

LOL

I am a HUGE fan of the vodka, but I refuse to drink anything called Rangtang. I don't care if it was the only vodka available, I wouldn't buy it. Thats a lie, I'd rather have an o-face than have no vodka at all.

Sometimes I think that I should go into advertising, as clearly there are some people who have had a little trouble understanding the objectives of their job.

Simply Mel said...

Seriously? Ridiculous.

Caroline said...

I don't get these ads at all. And I hate her necklace too!

Brown Girl said...

I've never seen an add like that but I hate how they are trying to appeal more and more to kids. Pisses me off.

Alicia said...

ughhh no not at all. its crap! and my 6 yr old would probably LOVE it!

Melanie's Randomness said...

OMG NO JOKE I'm watching The Godfather right now so ALllll this reminds me of is that scene in the orange field with Marlon Brando. YIKES!!!

Brooke said...

Okay, so, I like vodka. I mean, I did live in Lithuania and Russia. It's kind of a requirement. But, why is this called Rangtang? And, why is the ad so stupid?

bananas. said...

Feel free to send that ketel one my way. I'll be glad to use it up for you :)

Never heard of that vodka but that ad is wiggity wack so i guess it's no wonder.

O face reminds me of my friend...she kept saying that when she was getting tattooed. Useless fact for you.

Happy friday!

...love Maegan said...

lol. Yeah, somebody 1. had to come up with this idea at an ad firm. and 2. somebody else {if not a group of assholes} had to approve it. 3. they should all be fired.

Down and Out Chic said...

i'll take that vodka off of your hands in a second! i agree with you too, this ad is pretty terrible.

diane said...

Oh I get it, they're playing on Orangatang (orange/monkey). Stupidly not chic at all.
Really miss vodka, but not enough to be tempted by that stuff.

WendyB said...

Unappealing!

joana said...

this scares me, to be honest.

Iva said...

my mommy told me if I didn't have anything nice to say, I should not say anything at all ;)

Happy Friday beautiful!! Have a great weekend!!

creative kerfuffle said...

the ad is horrible and stupid. when i drink (which is not often at all) liquor i can drink vodka because it mixes well w/ other stuff and you can't really taste it.

L. said...

I am so speechless b/c I can't stop laughingggggggggg....

Vodka sucks anyways, Tequila is where it's at! Is it 5 o'clock yet? Who cares it's a snow day =)

Ela said...

Oh my gosh...I think she has something in her teeth...


Happy weekend, drolly :)

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

If you say Ketel One 3 times I appear in front of you like a jeanie.

Christina In Wonderland said...

This makes me smile. Ah... of course tonight I've got a date with a certain charming Captain, but that's neither here nor there. :)

Lindsay said...

wow...I wonder how much they paid for that ad campaign. I think I'll stick to our pomegranate mojitos thankyouverymuch.

Sam said...

Gosh - the advertising executives who signed off on this one must have been pretty keen to get home that evening - it's truly awful and a turn off!

Kitty Stampede said...

ummmmmm....What?? hahahaha...this is retarted. When I was a kid eating oranges, I used to pull that all the time. This ad is so lame-orama.
i don't mind vodka..what's your drink of choice. i just don't like to taste the alcohol and its easy to disguise vodka. I'm back into enjoying the wine though lately..but it can backfire after too many glasses, but i guess that's with any liquor. and liquor and pms is not really that good of a combo..i had a bit of an altercation this week with it...hahaha..good thing it was just me and steve...god.

uglygirl said...

Why are they called "Three Olives"? Do they make their vodka from olives? I don't like her hair, necklace or earrings. This is even worse than that Napoleon Perdis ad.

Asylum Dolly said...

Hahaha! I've never heard of that brand. the ad is...interesting! I actually don't mind vodka- not that I've had it for a while though. I like it with lemonade and bitters :)

joana said...

apparently, a lot of designers have been integrating velvet in their f/w 2010 collections. i must confess, it's not a look i long for because i'm not a big fan of velvet. i think i can only take velvet in small doses..

Rachel Follett said...

Isnt this a total rip off on Office Space? Show my O-face. Oh Oh Oh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6UPR3OdroY

the spectator said...

I don't understand this ad. What has three olives got to do with orange lovers? And anyway, orangutangs have orange bums, not orange mouths. There are some advertising nitwits out there who shouldn't have a job. Another thing - her face looks sooo digitally enhanced.

RANG TANG?
o (face) my god.

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

i think my first alcoholic drink was vodka lime. or gin lime. something colourless. i dislike rum more.

Alisa said...

Freakish!

Big Red said...

I will take that bottle of Kettle One off of your hands. :)

ana b. said...

"RANGTANG O-FACE" This is just wrong but it really makes me think about orangutans' O-faces and that makes me puke gently into my mouth.

Heather Taylor said...

Haha, epic fail.

this is idiotic. i cant even believe it real.
