An open hate letter to Dove

Sometimes Chicago production companies make a commercial that is so timely, clever, and relevant, that people just hate how timely, clever, and relevant it is.

So on behalf of everyone who watches AMC on Sunday nights, curse you Dove! Curse you for seeing a hit show about the advertising industry and paying homage to it in an advertisement.

How are viewers ever going to tolerate all of the show’s subliminal video production product placement when they can see overt product placement in your kitschy, 30 second spot?

Don’t you realize that people love the show and everyone hates well-mannered commercials that reveal your awareness of our habits?

Your commercial is completely unrealistic and totally fails to be like Mad Men, anyway. Ad agencies are supposed to be about womanizing, drinking, and scheming, not uninspired fools who get their ideas from knowledgeable women who understand products and demographics.

All anyone can think about now is how much they hate you for ruining everything we love about Mad Men by poking fun at it. We Chicago production companies used to trust you, Dove, for leaving us clean and soft. So as revenge for your insulting commercial, we are going to buy an inferior soap brand that causes us to break out and smell. Let’s see you make a commercial about that!

Next time you need a real commercial, we’ll gladly make one for you about a bunch of foul mouthed children eating soap. Mention this blog and get 10% off editing and video production fees.

    “My company hired Video One and Irwin and his team hit it out of the park for us. We were working on a short deadline and needed video production work in Chicago and I was unable to get my crew there on the time frame I was given. Video One tackled the project head one and communicated thoroughly with me throughout the process and got the job done.” More…
