Feeling cartoony

What is up with all the bad animated ads we’re seeing on TV now? It’s like a creepy bad rash: one spot starts then, without any warning, it’s soon all over the place.
An (badly animated) elephant with a centipede as a son? C’mon people. Seriously?

    some of it is pretty kak..but there are also some good one..like the vodacom one with teh San people playing rugby and their wire car…very kwaai!!

    That is a cool one, ne. I still liked the first Meerkat ones though. It was much better than any of their other offerings. I wish our ad firms would jack it up a bit though. Seriously, we are getting really crap advertising these days.

    I think that’s why when we do see a good one these days..u remember it..cos the rest of it is just plain rubbish!

    I loved him in the beginning. Not the one where the girl one comes in though – that’s when they started stretching. But the first one was lekka when they were dancing here on the top of this building outside.

  6. madamm said,

    was it THAT building?
    uh..which one?

  7. Toby Hanks said,

    The one with the satellite on it. The municipality one.

  8. madamm said,

    oooh THAT one
    *tries to look confident*

    That one man. With the moerse dish on it. In the ad they do the conga or something like that.

    Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon.
    the little dog laughed to see such sports and the dish did the conga with the spoon

    Must be the birthday madness.
