Great Moments in Advertising History

I generally tend to find advertising focused on targeting “bros” or your general neighborhood douchebag (Affliction t-shirt, Ed Hardy, Real world cast member, etc) annoying. So any body spray, beer/energy drink commercial usually results in a rolling of the proverbial eyes and wondering how so many people from the agency down to the brand signed off on such an asinine concept for the campaign. I’ve got to hand it to Amp Energy Drink however, they still managed to target the usual dumb mammal but did it in a witty, entertaining manner. However I am biased, because of my soft spot for all things that reference the “Walk of Shame”. Speaking of douchebags, I also included a clip of my favorite Real World cast member ever, “Joey” who should be on the fast track for his own reality show platform soon where we can all witness him binge drink, chow down protein shakes and inevitably, perish. Amp should underwrite his eventual demise.
