You know faster is better. We’ve got a faster way to pay. You don’t have to be an Olympic snowboarder like Chloe Kim to shave seconds off your time at checkout. Tap to pay like a champion with your contactless Visa card where you see the Contactless Symbol. #PyeongChang2018#TeamVisa
And even before the Olympics started, I’ve seen Visa highlight Chloe Kim in some web ads:
“If only Harry used some Bounce to dry, he would be less wrinkly and winning at life. Toss wrinkles, static, lint, and pet hair goodbye.”
This businessman is pitching something to a group of humorless groups of Asians, which I assume are foreigners (since in the U.S., it would be unlikely for a group of Americans on a team to be all Asian Americans). Of course, his pitch would be better if he didn’t have a wrinkled shirt on.
Personally, I just like the parodied song.
Of course, in the alternative universe, the guy’s pitch is going great now that he has a non-wrinkled shirt on. I guess there is only so much creativity you can have for a fabric softener ….
I caught this Nature’s Bounty television commercial for fish oil while watching I think CNN on a Saturday morning.
I like how this 0:15 second commercial shows the woman’s future self accelerated over time an rewinds back. My mother has taken fish oil in the past, but I’ve always wondered (like vitamins), how much of difference it can make to take such supplements. A quick reading on WebMD:
What I love about these KY Intense commercials is that while sex not talked about by conservative Americans of any ethnic culture, yes…People actually do the horizontal mambo from time to time. For fun. The APA community does this, too, as crazy as that sounds. So in commercials that play off some of the stereotypical quiet Asian behaviors, I find that these KY ads are actually fairly well done.
I love the fact that there are industries recognizing the buying power of APA now. I suppose that some might get offended that we’re stereotyped as reserved and quiet, but from an economic perspective, I love it. There are not many studies out there that prove Asian Americans have a serious buying power but even looking at this 2004 study by the Magazine Publishers of America shows that we’re a force to be reckoned with if you can persuade us to drop some of the hard-earned cash.
