Stupid Ads

Men over 30 Shouldn't Use Emoticons. Period.

Thoughts on this RadioShack ad featuring Lance Armstrong? I can't make up my mind. Meh. At least it made me think of a new blog label: WHO CARES. I am just glad I am not a man (for MANY reasons), and I can use emoticons all the live long day.

WTF! Is Lance in need of money? Perhaps he is stooping to this level because he has another mouth to feed.

vint junky said...

I agree! I don't think my self deprecative sarcasm translate across the web. I need ;) or two to help me!

sheez...you would think having one less ball would make him less cocky. guess not. hahaha! :) :) :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Wait, Radio Shack still exists? Well, I guess that worked then.

Claire Kiefer said...

I actually think that this is pretty hilarious but only because it is totally ABSURD and entirely RANDOM. How is this an add for Radio Shack? Why is there a lemon tree in the office? RIDICULOUS!

Morgan said...

Stupid. Just stupid.
Lance also annoys me so that may bias my opinion.

L.A. Daze said...

What's with the lemon tree? Ugh, stupid ad.

Phoenix said...

Men over 30 shouldn't have Motivational Posters of Lance Armstrong in their office.

Farah said...

Wow...Is Lance Armstrong in need of money? That was really really unnecessary!

Susan Erickson said...

It is all wrong and annoying....get your damn finger out of my face...and the look...he's really asking for it...motivate to get the hell out of that nasty space....

SabinePsynopsis said...

Bohaa! This man has HUUUUGE cojones!

[snigger]

... & WHO CARES?!?!?

Christiejolu said...

What I am curious about is why men shouldn't use emoticons...

Rebecca said...

Oh dear Lance. Oh dear.

p.s I just wanted to say I LOVE your blog header. It is perhaps the best blog header I have ever seen. Good work (happy face emoticon)

Lorena said...

Call me stupid, but
I JUST DONT GET IT !

Heff said...

Men over 30 ALSO probably shouldn't attempt to make a CAREER out of bicycling, either, but He's the exception to that rule.

Kelly@TearingUpHouses said...

He bugs me. I'm not sure why, but this ad solidifies it.

i like lance armstrong! but this ad is strange, i am trying to wonder why radioshack would spend money on creating such a pointless advert...it does not make much marketing sense.

Caroline said...

Another reason I love being a girl!!! Emoticons rule!! :) ;) <3 ^_^

Karena said...

this is the stupidest ad ever.
wth? what does lance armstrong have to do with radio shack and what do emoticons have to do with lance armstrong?!
and who the hell styled that shitty looking bookcase?

diane said...

I'm sure whomever thought up this ad thought that it was a great idea whilst taking an umpteenth hit off of the crack pipe. :) :( <3 ;) :O I have no idea what the emoticons mean, but whatev. Lance Armstrong has a great big ego stuck up his arse, btw.

Fragrant Liar said...

Emoticons are an emotionally unavailable man's way to connect up.

Kristin said...

Hmmmmmmm. Not sure if I think this is funny or not...Jury's out.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I love how this has nothing to do with Radio Shack. They sell emoticons? Or their competitor does? I don't know. This is a MISS. Totally.

The Zhush said...

"meh"...that sums it up entirely! and also "why?" :)

Daniela said...

lol.. I kind of like it!!

Quirkyloon said...

Lance Schmance. And I say REAL men use emoticons.

:)

Christina In Wonderland said...

I don't get why it even matters if men use emoticons. How is that supposed to sell people into going to Radio Shack?

Kitty Stampede said...

hahahha...your comment made me giggle.
what a retarded ad.

Pretty Little World said...

I can't figure out what this ad is for. I mean, I know it's a Radio Shack ad, but I don't get it: (1) Why is Lance riding a bicycle in an office? (2) What does internet punctuation have to do with Radio Shack? (3) A lemon tree?

Adiya said...

Ugh?! What is the ad about?? :s :o And i love emoticons! I guess one more reason why i like being a girl :p
