Oh my gosh, people, is it really all that bad? In its first foray into mass TV advertising, Coupons.com is launching a series of LOL commercials aimed at getting budget-conscious consumers' attention. (Except, do you really have to go that far?) Case in point: the ad shown here, in which a woman wolfs down a sample tray of cheese snacks as soon as the coast is clear. Two more ads are due shortly: One will feature a man lathering his hair with shampoo and conditioner in a store until disturbed by a freaked-out consumer; the other will show a lady grabbing a can of shaving cream and a razor off a store's shelves and starting to shave her legs. The ads were created in-house and directed by Jason Zada of Tool of North America. I'm tempted to go down to Kmart, take some Dawn dish detergent and start cleaning my pots and pans.
