Commercials are something we see when we watch TV, but do we ever go out and buy the actual product they are advertising? The bigger question is do you even know what they are trying to sell?
Zach Lashway talked with some local Philadelphia TV goers to get some of their feedback on today’s popular commercials. One fan favorite is the Old Spice commercial that has been airing since 2010. Viewers find it ridiculously funny and memorable.
Commercials that feature celebrities might have the viewer focus more on the celebrity than the actual product, such as the Pepsi commercial that features Beyonce. The audience will probably recall that Beyonce was featured but not product she was endorsing.
Another popular one is the Progressive commercial featuring Flo. Viewers seem to find this commercial outdated and annoying. The new favorite is the Kmart shipping commercial. The audience seems to find this to be extra hilarious, experts say it’s safe but a little dangerous which makes the commercial stand out.
Zach’s personal favorite is the Verizon commercial which is not scripted and features the young children at the table.
