Can't quite put my finger on why this campaign sucks.


You can't blame the Butterfinger people, really. Like everybody else these days, Nestlé wants to grab some of that tasty Frat Boy demo that spends money with the combined forethought of a general invading Russia in the dead of Winter. But, well, you're a candy bar—and a candy bar with very strong ties to a 10-year-old. Wish ya luck and stuff, but to make your ads work, you'd need to use a different finger.

I know - this campaign always reminds me of my trips to the proctologist.

Oh, I see. The one finger is ... butter. And it's making the sign say a funny thing.

Pure genius. Excuse me while I dash to the local confectioner's shoppe.

Calling this a campaign is a compliment!

Mmmmm...prostate massage.

Plus, the word verification for this post is "budtii," so the gift just keeps on giving.

My thoughts drift back to the time when Mick Jagger was caught eating a Mars Bar out of Marianne Faithfull's growler. Now there's an image to play with.

Fishnchimps; I wonder whose lips were larger in that exchange.

Hahaha. That's exactly what Claymore said. He calls it "The Buttfinger."

We had a boy at school who gained the name brown finger... poor lad has a mishap with a lass.
