My world has vanished. Only the commercial remains.
The thing I'm stuck on is the idea that I should just drop a taco on the ground. DROP a TACO? In this economy?
a reason why (there are mulitple!) why this ad is such a clunker is because it's trying SO HARD to push this 'no compromise' brand for a Nissan Sentra, which is the car you settle for when you can't afford a Honda Civic or Toyota Camry. No amount of Marvel can change that.
This is the kind of content that I am here for. Who the fuck is watching this ad and feeling Nissan's intended feelings? Maybe I don't understand because I'm a cis male, but is there a single woman on the planet who watched this ad and was like, "FUCK yeah, Nissan, you GET me!"
Also, does Sam Elliot narrate every single ad for every single truck ever manufactured? I drive a pickup truck for practical reasons, but mine as a Bernie sticker on it. Am I asking for it to be vandalized by drivers of bigger trucks?
Excellent blog, but that commercial made me mad? I think I need to take a walk or a gummy.
What really bothers me about it is we don't get to see Alyssa's character tell off her boss for passing her over.
This ad is straight-up bonkers, and also somehow everywhere for me as well.
The TV ad I've been seeing a lot lately that is melting my brain is one where, during a Zoom school lesson, a young girl describes her mother's job as "time traveling in a rocket ship" and bringing back advice to help everyone "feel less worried," and... well, you've just gotta watch it.
I'm in Los Angeles and I think I remember this being filmed in Downtown, but man, the locations of this are wild. They're outside the CalTrans building with the tacos, then heading east six blocks south, then somehow eight blocks north driving around Bunker hill, then the taco person gets out of the car like seven blocks away from the Cal Trans Building. C'mon, get some continuity of geography here!
The backup camera is how laser lady found tony stark
Nobody's brain works at full capacity on a Friday, anyway. If you could read my mind right now all you'd hear is the Mario 64 wahoo noise.
I'd love to see the comments if this could still be cross-posted to Jalopnik.
Hell yeah this post. My five year old asked me why she said “drop the taco” six or seven times, and I have no answer
I’m bad with celebs and was simply wondering why someone would cast Jennifer Lawrence’s sister for a commercial.
I’m not sure why I got the post notification for this on Sunday rather than Friday and am sad that I missed out on The Discourse.
But I’m consoled by the fact that, @Samantha, I think we’re watching all the same shit because THIS COMMERCIAL IS PART OF ME NOW and I hate it!!!
Ok I’ll bite.
I do not know who Brie Larson is, but I do know and adore Alyssa's vids on Twitter and I'm super-happy that she's getting gigs but I'm trying to peer into the soul of somebody who saw her previous work, cast her for this commercial, and utilized her this poorly. And when I peer into that soul I just see a blank emptiness.
lol I just watched that for the first time now and what the fuck????? honestly shocked people get paid big money to make commercials this bad
