Crunch Invites Me Not To Join Now.

Here (click image), Crunch presents the absolutely #1 inarguably perfect reason NOT to join their overpriced stupid trendy stinky gyms. As Potato #2 says, "It's still (fucking) exercise." It's why actual fun activities like running around the Central Park reservoir or playing catch with a Frisbee® or kicking around a soccer ball or getting into bar fights or simply walking through the City are all far superior to going to a fucking "fitness center." Plus, this campaign insults the Irish. And Idaho. And Mr. & Mrs. Potatohead.

as a longtime reader, and junior writer in the making - just out of curiosity, how does this spec work sit with you (sans art direction)

concha: yeah, I don't hate this campaign. what I really hate is gyms. But if they were going to use the tired potato/coach potato gag, the writing should have been much much better. but who knows? it's probably the client's fault.

I don't know nothin' 'bout no "fitness center," but potato #2 looks like it's giving potato #1 a bit of a workout...doggy-style!

If it were going to insult the Irish, there would have been no potatoes at all. It was a famine, after all.

When I passed this ad, it really made me want a baked potato.

Maybe I was just hungry.

von k; if I'm not wrong, the potato on the right is actually perfoming oral on the potato on the left (note position of talk bubble relative to the potatoes). If true, Mr. Potato is gonna put his love right in the eye of the potato.

anon, if that’s the case, then the bubble for the one on the right should have garbled text.
