Skittles hot new "viral" video annoys the hell out of me.


I just don't like it. The tune is so fucking grating. I don't like looking at this guy's shorts for 3 minutes. And I despise videos created with VIRAL flashing in the ad agency's and/or client's head (not sure who's involved here). But I'm obviously in the minority. It's so wAcKY and un-ad like, man! The kids dig it!
Fuck off. It's boring.
I did like Brube, and the "Skit-TELLS" pronunciation.
View lots of funny TBWA\Chiat\Day-created Skittles commercials here.

Wouldn't it be smarter to simply show Marshawn Lynch over and over again?

Usually I watch these just to say I've watched them, but I couldn't even do that.

Annoying + boring = FAIL.

Is that "Hungry Eyes" from the pretzel M&Ms commercial?

Hire someone to act like a retard and play some dumb music in the background. Never done before, i'm sure.

Also, if they really had balls they would've hired a real retard. It's weird living in a world where some semi-retarded ugly guy acting retarded isn't seen as offensive, whereas a real retard just having fun with skittles in his pants would be.

I'd love to see a campaign creative brief from Skittles. Under "What is the ONE THING you want people to feel after seeing your ads?" I'm guessing the answer was "Awkwardly uncomfortable/a little queasy."

What the hell is wrong with you? How can you not like this? Have you no heart/soul?

This is what advertising should look like. Not some retarded half-clever headline witha n image of two objects merged into one.

A feeling. Give the consumer something.

Dude, you should've fucking used font size 20+ when you wrote boring. This is like the most goddamn boring annoying thing you've ever posted on this goddamn boring annoying blog. I wasted 3 minutes of my time watching this viral crap.

Yea, that was too annoying to watch. So obvious and boring. Over 8,000 'likes'? Ugh.

They didn't even follow through on their "awkward comedy" idea. Doubt sets in... introduce the hottie in short-shorts and big-bangs. "Viral" by committee. Blah.

Too many shots of his skittles pouch creeped me out. This is just another lame attempt by corporate sugar pushers to seem hip and fun. Vomit.

i think the high production value is what screws it...

if they make it less obvious (maybe using a handheld $50 video camera), it WILL sink into the consciousness of many people.

Made it to 2:09.

Even if it was remotely funny, it's far far far far far too long.

It's 2011, we all have the attention spans of goldfish.

"Skit-TELLS" pronunciation.

Maybe it was actually:

"Scat-TELLS"

Yes, shite. It's like a weird mash up of Nyan cat and Where the Hell is Matt. Shame. I usually like Skittles' ads.
