Campy, Kooky Commercials Worth Watching: Man-Eating Focus Groups
I don't normally like to advertise more mainstream, non-geek-centric products on my blog, so consider this an advertisement of an advertisement: the Snickers Peanut Butter Squared Focus Group ad. Watch it here at YouTube.
Not only is this ad so delightfully morbid, but it's also a spot-on satire of focus groups and public relations. Never before has a seemingly innocuous phrase such as "Eat both squares please" taken on such hilariously sinister connotations. Kind of makes you wonder what the same focus group would say about Jaws and its sequels, doesn't it?
