I was able to make four.

Dear Ketel One Drinker COLON? Dear Ketel One Drinker COMMA? Dear Ketel One Drinker DASH? Dear Ketel One Drinker ELLIPSIS? How bout you nimrods learn how to punctuate your own doodle-brained ads before you invite me (well not me, I don't drink Ketel One) to play a stupid fucking language game.
(tip sent in by Barbara Scarpa)
previously in imbecilic Ketel One ads:
1. Not everyone hates Ketel One ads...
2. "famous Dutch shrinks" returns zero Google matches.
3. My correspondence with Ketel One continues...
4. You don't have a mouth, Ketel One phone kiosk...
5. Ketel One's subliminal advertising.
6. An unsigned letter from a distillery in Holland.

I admire their balls to imagine that someone might actually fill out hundred words...really, you have to live in the ivoriest (not a real word, but should be) of towers to put this out.

Yeah, but where do you send it in once you fill them out.

I could only spell Kod. I don’t think that’s really a word. Not even in Rumanian Scrabble. Shit wait, ‘One.’ No fair, that was a gimmee.

I agree that this ad alone, well all of them individually within the campaign, truly suck, but the operative word here is campaign, no? I doubt anybody at Ketel One expects viewers to play their litte game(unless you're bored, sitting in an airport, with nothing to do except play a word game in your mind). But I guess the objective probably was to create these eye-catching, albeit ugly, pieces to simply increase awareness. It's done just that for me. I might actually be inclined to try their swill, if opportunity arose, cuz at least I now know the brand name.

Christ this has been a serious rant. Someone tell me to fuck off, please?

Hey.. maybe there are some satanic verses to be found in the word game. That would suit the typeface at least.

anon: I don't give a shit what the point of the campaign is or if it works; it is cultural puke and both Ketel One and their ad agency deserved to be hit by small tactical nuclear devices.

No, CR, a fate much worse is needed for these fuckers. They need to suffer. I recommend multiple papercuts and ketel one vodka poured into said papercuts.

Jackass did a segment on papercuts between the toes and on the tongue. I‘m thinking on the nuts would work too.
