has anyone seen that mccain commercial where its a kid and his dad talking about making the basketball team. the dialouge goes something like this:

kid: i didn't make the team.
dad: thats too bad, blah blah blah
kid: well, the way i figure it, the best player in the nba didn't make his high school team either.
dad: neither did your mother!
(mom and dad give eachother knowing look)

what the hell was that??!! my friends and i have analyzed this commercial to death and still can't figure out if it's supposed to be funny and we're missing it.....or maybe its not supposed to make any sense. help us. people are losing sleep.


oh yeah and that "knock-knock-knocking on buck a day's door" commercial sucks too. i watch too much tv.

plur.......sugar

I know what it means. It means that the ad agency for McCains should be fired.

Yeah there's a series of commercials on the radio for Zantac, which is a heartburn/acid-reflux medication, and they make no sense either. They'll just have the sound of a regular event going on (basketball game, family picnic, whatever), and then the announcer will say "Don't you think it's time you talked to your doctor about Zantac?"

what makes no sense is that colgate ad, with the ice-climbing, and lowering themselves into a cave, and the mouthwash and toothpaste throwing, and the sculpture making, and the kissing..

wtf?

supposedly its a reference to the mother actually being a professional basketball player, thus the joke about her not making the team.

however, i don't know why people say that she is a pro-basketball player since you barely even see her in the commercial.

oh i just remembered another one that bugs me.....its for some medication for heartburn or arthritis or something. but they advertise it as "today's purple pill". are they actually trying to play off of that D12 song purple pills??? that would be hilarious.....i love when old people try to be hip.

the fasther is dissapointed that his son didnt make the team and he cannot live out his glory days through him and use him as the pawn he is

the son is saying that its no big deal since the best nba player didnt even make his highschool team (is this an allussion to a real person? i dont know basketball so meh.) and therefore not the end of the world.

the father makes a crack about how the kids mom didnt make her team either. as in "so what? she didnt make the team, and is she a pro-star now? no! she's banging the post man that damn dirty whore!"

little do both know the mom is in the basement, facedown on the floor, dead.
that cat really hated her.

now lets celebrate with tyhe great taste of mccians!!

I think this is the single most, terribly made, poor script piece of shit commercial ever.

A close second is the Tim Horton's one where the jewler is appraising the Muffin..pure shit.
