Check out a full rundown on the ad (including the audio, and mention of The OT!) at this staffing news website.

quote:

Over the past few weeks a sports forum called Tiger Droppings exploded with rage because of a 60-second radio ad for a Louisiana staffing company. The combination of an annoying kid, a nonsensical joke, and incessant repetition created three threads and more than 100 comments – all for our comedic benefit. It even inspired some angry LSU fans to contact the staffing company and radio station, pleading them to end it.



guess add this one to the "OT conquests" list

they have likke 4 or 5 of them where the little boy calls and desperatly wants to talk to his dad, but the douche bag of a father says no, then tells the 4 year old all about what a great company they are
so the ads tell me the fathers who work there
-dont want to talk to their children
- are too busy to help the chid, not so busy that they spend 2 minutes talking about ttheir company
- think their children are looking for staffing help


This. There was an older one with a little girl where he also shot her down and told her not to call him at work. Despite being annoying, WTF kind of idea is that?

I've said since I was about 11 years old the two most annoying traits that I'll never understand in the advertising world, espescially for radio commercials: 1) ringing phones, espescially more than one time, and 2)whining, high-pitched children's voices. I just don't get it.

“The radio ad was actually successful for us – the message board that was involved with the comments were not really our target audience, so they obviously did not connect with the ad. … The spot has brought more name recognition to our company. Our office opened in the 1980s and was one of the top two agencies in Baton Rouge throughout the 90s. Our business began to suffer a bit during Katrina and the recession, but a lot of our old clients have started calling us again in part because of our radio spots.”


So they adverstised on sports talk radio, but a message board based on LSU sports was not their target audience? Would it be possible that there may be some crossover between those in Baton Rouge who both listen to sports talk radio and visit an LSU sports-based message board?

I hadn't heard that commercial before and it's worse than I expected. AWFUL. Who could have possibly given it a green light?

The best part is the company thinks it worked because people are mentioning their name. Well, people are but for all the wrong reasons. Comments like, "I'll tell everyone I know to NEVER call this company" ,"This commercial is giving me cancer" and "I've stopped listening to 104.5 all together because of this commercial" are not what you want out of an add campaign.

I'll just throw it out there that I may be missing something, but I have no idea why this was given the green light for any reason. The content sucks, has too many storylines which are odd, the presentation is aweful, the secondary messaging (scolding children for calling at work) is bizarre, and other things like multiple ringing phones is just annoying.

It reminds me of the movie City Slickers in the beginning when the boss plays this terrible jingle and asks why would we put this on our station, when people will just change it when it comes on?

I see what you did here, and appreciate you bringing the OT's antics to light.

This commercial is aweful, and for a time it would play twice within a commerical break. I also stopped listening to 104.5 for this reason.
