Ever hear a commercial where it is obvious that the writer didn't have a clue? Here are a couple of examples I remember:
- A radio commercial for a local casino paints a picture of a guy laying a bet on his favorite "hard 8" at the craps table. He throws the dice (and it is like everything is in slow motion). The first 4 sticks. The second die teeters between 4 and its "dreadful neighbor" 3. BZZZZT!!! Wrong! Anybody that knows anyting about dice knows that the numbers on opposite sides always total 7. Therefore 3 is the one number that is NOT a "neighbor" of 4.
- A radio commercial for backup power systems is giving all the reasons you need to have one. The background sound is the "tick-tock" of an old mechanical alarm clock. As the verbage comes to a place that says "when the power goes out", the tick-tock stops. BZZZZZT!!! Wrong! A mechanical alarm clock keeps on ticking when the power goes out.
Any more good examples?
