Oh, please please please don't put siren and iphone chime noises in your commercials. I will stop listening to your radio station pronto.
While I'm at it, Alarm Force should cancel the ad they've had for the last five years. That over-imploring breathless old guy pitch is really annoying.
And that ******* sun-tek tomato pitch by the announcer that sounds like Max Keeping's younger brother... Manotik's little miracles or something... makes me not want to eat a greenhouse tomato ever again.
Why do they have such ****** ads?
Because you were just able to aptly describe both the Alarm Force and Sun Tek commercials at will. They work.
Anyone who listens to Team 1200 knows the Alarm Force number by heart, and can recall it on a whim, I would bet. The ads are bad because they're repetitive, and they're repetitive because they want you to remember the content of the ad, not how good/bad the ads are.
I love innovative commercials, but commercials that are entertaining and well done are usually remembered for just that: being entertaining and well done, not remembered for the brand.
I dont remember what it was for but I always found this one hilarious
.... Ive shattered my pelvis on your elvis figurine, and the porcelain is lodged deep inside my knee. Im trapped on the couch and forced to watch tv so wish your sister my best and enjoy the ceremony..... Have a good time.... Im staying here...
The afternoon spot was good for a couple years with Galley and JR, but was otherwise between bleh and awful since I've been listening (that guy who called Domi a wife beater - Dan? Don?). Doesn't look like it's going to improve this year. Not a Simpson fan. Gross pretty much is Lloyd. They sound the damn same. At least Gross' personality isn't totally milquetoast.
Dissapointed that Lloyd and York got movde to the morning show. I loved them in their pre-game slot. Wish the "healthy scratches" part would have stayed with them for the morniing show too.
Love Simmer, but not a fan or Gross.
Interesting that Versage got the boot!
Lloyd said on the show today that he asked for the move so he could deal with his young kids and shift working wife's schedule better. Could just be spin, but who knows, or really cares.
Gross I don't love, but I'll give him a chance, Simmer is great when he isn't trying too hard (which all radio people seem to do). He has impressed me less the more he has been on, but that may just be the summer lull in hockey news, his connections on bringing guests on the show has been impressive, we'll see how well it he holds up over a full year.
Definitely not a fan of Versage, imho he just sucks. Good move by the Team.
As long as they try to keep it professional I'll be happy, don't deteriorate into the old inside jokes/callers/Jerome days.
