I don’t know about you but I appreciate a good commercial.

Sure, most of the time they just make us angry or we ignore them all together. (unless it’s the Super Bowl)  But you can’t deny when you get sucked into a commercial and find yourself actually interested, amazed or even sad you have to give some love to the marketing teams. I will tell you that women tend to be a bit more observant in this matter. Or, maybe we are just more likely to have an emotional reaction to things, at least once a month. I’m just minding my business, eating my third chocolate bar, when WHAM..

and then I’m all…

Subaru people are either genius or in cahoots with Puffs and Kleenex.

That may not be true for all you ladies out there but I know I’m a sucker. For instance, I keep telling myself my next car will be a Subaru just because I love their commercials. I know nothing about Subarus, or cars for that matter. All I know is I have a hard time keeping it together for any Subaru commercial and I would seriously consider them now!

Here are a few more companies I would be happy to ignorantly support just because I love their commercials…

Sold.

Sold.

Sold.

Sold.

There are so many great advertisements out there. It makes you wonder why things like this are still happening….

or you could take things to the next level like this Thai commercial…

Thanks for ruining my week Thai Insurance.

I can understand why someone with a small budget would end up with something terrible. It’s just puzzling when even decent sized companies still end up with this…

Okay, now let’s dissect that video.

It seems like a well done commercial. Simple idea and straight to the point. So WHY are they getting so much wrong!

For starters,  I feel like that guy is hitting on me. Sure, he is a nice looking guy, but why is he just a tad older than he should be. Then, did they just tell him to wear a collared shirt and tuck it in, or was there actually a stylist behind this? Button up your shirt dude. Maybe, get a belt, actually maybe get a new outfit entirely. And is it just me or is his torso way out of proportion with the rest of his body? I feel like walking up to this guy and saying “Oh hey Brad (which I’m assuming is his name), I can’t believe you forgot to shave before your first acting gig in that Trivago commercial, how embarrassing”

All I’m saying is, there are companies who get it, companies who don’t have enough money to even try, and companies that have the money and should know better! We would all be grateful if those people put a little more thought into their advertisements!

Anyway…Let’s end this on a good note…

Laugh…

Be Inspired…

And Love…

The cold hard truth is…

Advice, Comedy, Design Studio, getting old, Learning, LeMonkey House, Mistakes, Music, people, Weather, why

This may go against everything you learned as a child but it’s the cold hard truth and someone has to say it. As you get older you start to realize you will have to cut things out. There simply isn’t enough time to do the things you need to do, let alone the things you WANT to do. Oh, and also you probably won’t be the president or an astronaut. Just sayin’

Anyway… I wanted to bring this up to help future adults better cope with the fact that they will be able to actually accomplish only a fraction of the dreams and goals they have when they are young, and also maybe a little bit as a cry for help.Fun-Time

Help with my time management. I mean starting my day hitting snooze 7 times doesn’t exactly get things started on the right foot, but gin will do that to you I suppose. Then we have the “to do” list in my brain. A list on which all of the items are battling for the top spot and therefore I cannot decide which to pick. So naturally I pick the worst option.

Take this morning for example. I spent a solid 45 minutes wandering around the apartment. Made two cups of coffee. Then I sat down to take care of business. What business did I take care of? I snapchatted my cousin a clip of a Stevie Wonder “Happy Birthday” video. That’s called prioritizing children.

yep.

I need a serious life coaching session.

This is the worst time of year for my time management problems. If it’s even remotely nice outside I will make every excuse in the book as to why I need to just roll around in the grass somewhere. I couldn’t possibly clean my bathroom, THE SUN IS OUT!

I don’t think everyone is guilty of putzing around like me and thank goodness for that. I’m a supporter of the go getter lifestyle, I just don’t seem to have the time to go anywhere or get anything. So, I hope all of you reach the goals you set for yourselves and all your dreams come true.

That being said, today is beautiful and I have lots of things I need to avoid doing.

It may still be snowy, or rainy and cold where you are, except for you bastards in California, but soon we will all be soaking in the rays! So let’s get ready mentally and BE HAPPY!

Happy first day of spring people! (or at least people that it applies to, for everyone else you will have your time, pipe down)

For those people, I saved my personal favorite….
