Just in time for this weekend’s national pastime, it’s time to take a look at what we won’t be seeing in America’s Game. No, not the Pats. We’re talking the last crop of TV ads you and your mates actually quiet down to watch. (No wonder NBC is demanding $3M for each 30-second spot.)
LandlineTV gives us a preview of what didn’t make the cut this year, like “Sex Car” (above), their second episode of their web series Rejected Super Bowl Ads.
The premise of the show is rather straightforward: Cory Cavin and Josh Lay of LynnLynn Comedy, a New York-based comedy group, are five-year interns at an advertising agency. Mad Men they aren’t. Instead, they give us commercials like a Budweiser version of the Mac vs. PC ads, the environmentally-friendly cachet of the Toyota Prius for something a little more sexy, and now their latest release which takes a new spin on everybody’s favorite feminine product.
When asked about future plans, LandlineTV CEO and Co-Founder Jared Neumark said, “I think we will probably continue with it after the Super Bowl in some capacity. We don’t have anything scheduled yet. But there are many more bad commercials, and even bad TV shows and movies that Cory and Josh can pitch.”
I, for one, have never been so excited to hear about bad TV pitches before.
Also, keep an eye out for more comedy coming from LandlineTV, as we’re told they have several comedy series in development that will be coming out in the next few months. We’re game.
