Pretty Little World said...

I want to know what kind of direction they gave the guy in the middle photo. Clearly whomever said, "That's the look we want" should lose their job.

drawing tablets said...

First fail was with the name, second is this whole "let's pretend we're so smart and play with words well" capaign. Tragic.

Alisa said...

Sad. Trying to be clever, didn't quite make it.

bananas. said...

ew! what's with all the effen hate? i freakin love this vodka. the name is HILARIOUS!!! and those ads crack me up.

shoot they're more clever than half the blog posts people write. just sayin...

hahaha! i'm such a shit talker.

Charlotte said...

I wanna see one of those ads with a homeless dude drinking vodka out of a bag. Let's see what they can do with that.

ticklishfromadistance said...

Made me laugh....

Melanie's Randomness said...

Yes put effen on a plane so the pilot can drink & the studorists so they can fall. Brillant ad...Not!

DREAMER'S DEN said...

not very effen original

Farah said...

Okay seriously if a waiter came up to me looking like that guy, I would totally freak out!! What's with the eyebrow there buddy??!!

Lady Ren said...

Seriously this is a campaign geared towards underage drinkers- I think it's funny because it is so bad- Never would I effen buy it.
I agree with drawing tablets:
"let's pretend we're so smart and play with words well"

Char said...

done by absolute much better, say about 15 years ago

Missy said...

So funny!

Brooke said...

I never order that vodka because of the name. They totally named it "Effen", so they could run stupid ad campaigns like this. Too contrived.

J. said...

oh come on- it's funny. And it may be contrived- but it's a damn smart marketing move, obviously. I mean, here we are discussing it, right?!

Hal said...

ROFL .. the worst.

HALCOHOLIC.com

adrienzgirl said...

Not sure why but I am amused by them.

Kitty Stampede said...

HA! i like effen on a hot night on a parkbench facing a lake, watching the ducks. no, i've never tried it but this does make me want to have a few drinky poos.

Iva said...

horrible. and what kinda of plane is that?

Caroline said...

I don't get it either... I mean, I "get it" but it's stupid...obviously targeted to the clueless. I will stick to my Belevedere thankyouverymuch!

Kristin said...

I dunno. The dude is kinda crackin' me up. HA!

Jennifer DeDonato said...

reminds me of the hiney wine radio ads when I was a kid in the 70's.

"Hiney in the morning, Hiney in the evening, Hiney at supper time...if you give me some Hiney then you'll always be mine"

oh and they had a motto of

"You only go around once in life, so grab for all the Hiney you can get"

glory!

Chessa! said...

omg. there are so many dumb ads out there.

the other vodka one that comes to mind is those idiotic are you bot or not ads for svedka. I don't freaking get it.

my fave ad that makes fun of dumb ads are the new tampon commercials..."you will buy these tampons bc I'm racially ambiguous...you will buy these tampons bc I'm wearing white pants." lol

Kara said...

I'm not gonna lie, these made me giggle.

Gabby said...

I think the whole Effen thing was clever at first, but it's kinda old now. But Effen Black Cherry is yum, so I don't care. :)

Phoenix said...

I think if I was stuck on what is clearly a BUBBLE-WRAP plane, or stuck in a penthouse with a smarmy dude with a facial expression like that, I would, in fact, start drinking vodka.

Like, quick-style.

Mrsblogalot said...

I'm so Effin stupid, I don't even know if this is a real vodka.

How could I not know a real vodka???

Effin A

L.A. Daze said...

It's funny but not very original and it doesn't compel me to buy the product either.

Susan Erickson said...

cheeky...but the humour might wear thin after awhile...did make me laugh though!

The Zhush said...

Wait...are these for real?

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

LOL...maybe I am just amused easily?

Vivienne said...

Clearly the boys' JV basketball team landed the Effen Vodka account.

十十f十 said...

wahahahahaha... effen good way to have the brand stick in people's heads i guess.

Asylum Dolly said...

I agree with bananas! These are hilarious!!! They gave me a well needed chuckle.But i do have a very juvenile sense of humour!
The expression on that guys face is pretty classic too :D
I totally want to see some company go a step further and market a brand of vodka called "Fucking Vodka".
"Nothing warms me up like Fucking by the fire!"

Kathryn said...

You know a guy had to come up with brand name and slogan. I'm guessing a nerdy one at that, based on the nerdy looking serial killer looking waiter in the 2nd picture.

The Cottage Cheese said...

It's like they thought up the ads before they named the liquor. Dummies.

Jill said...

Effen on a plane...tried it...awful. It wasn't a jet either...that may have made a big difference.

pita bread said...

Yeah, these ads are very stupid but let's look at it from another side - there are many stupid people in the world so they will like it.
