Bond, Coke Bond And Beyond!

So dVerse wants all to go all marketing in the media at their show. Of course with a movie mention that got the cat's attention. So let's see what the cat can recall for thee. Some blatant advertising can be fun to at least let a rhyme be spun.

Here's 20 million bucks,
To fool the dumb ducks.
Bond now drinks coke,
So all will follow that bloke.

Look! Jack Bauer is captured by the Chinese.
We get to see it on a DVD set tease.
Damn, rescued with a shiny brand new car.
Toyota's ability sure does extend far.

Tweedle dee and tweedle dum,
Act away while chewing some gum.
It's extra minty flavor,
Is sure to beat that life saver.

Time to track down the bad guy.
We will do it on the first try,
With our brand new Windows eight.
Come now, take the bait.

Geico saving you 15% or more,
Wait! State Farm is something of lore.
No! Liberty Mutual takes the cake,
This guy, that guy, their info is fake.

Come to subway,
The Buy More has it on display.
Along with Happy Gilmore.
Come now, feel free to explore.

No time to play?
Let Fed Ex take your cares away.
I mean it worked for Hanks,
Wilson too gives a big thanks.

Sit with Mac and Me.
McDonald's will sure thank thee.
An alien who likes fast food.
That is some great attitude.

I'm not lyin,
As pizza hut is what you are spyin'
Just because my lying is an invention,
Does not mean they don't deserve a mention.

Now just Transform-er away,
With plenty of GM on display.
At least they go boom,
For their blatant advertising doom.

Did you get them all as I went almost full movie at my hall? Could not resist the insurance stuff, as each is better, or so they huff. If anyone real drinks coke or any other crap because of some fake famous chap, that makes the cat sad. You humans are more gullible than a two year old lass or lad. But it must work as they advertise in mass, which is simply ignored by my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. nice job incorporating the ads within the poem. It always is something I pay attention to when watching a show, is the internal product placements, nowadays most are done subtly, yet once in a while you get the kind that are just way out of left field, like for example, say if a guy is in a heated battle against aliens and then all of a sudden he just happens to have a coke, holds up clearly to the camera drinks it, says ahh, then goes back to shooting the aliens. That wasn't a great example but sometimes they placements are just so in your face you just have to laugh at them. Great write lots of fun in the truth you've spun

    1. Yeah many a time they are there
      I see them and don't care
      But those ones that are in your face
      Truly are pathetic at a steady pace
      But I guess they get the movie made
      So they can't let the advertising fade

  2. Bond could drink coke
    Not really a joke
    It was fun to the taste
    Even taken in haste
    Toyota and John Bauer
    Made things that blur
    McD,Fed-Ex and all the rest
    They sure tried their best
    We just observe, let them be
    It was their wish to make money!

    1. Yeah that i the way
      Just to watch at ones bay
      Then shrug and walk off
      Letting them scoff
      About all the dough they dropped
      As the screen cropped

  3. Good thing Bond doesn't eat cat food... or I'd feel I need to have some too.

  4. I know not
    of what
    you speak
    for I am
    too miserly
    and cheap.

    No telly
    I own
    so I can't
    hear them
    cawk as
    crows about
    products that
    blow.

    Haven't seen an advert in about five years Cat and I don't miss it. But I will spend 20 minutes looking at cat food wondering what my Princess Fang will like best, and this is an animal that licks it's own arse. Jaysus, maybe I should just let feckin Purina tell me what all the cool cats are eating these days. It would be quicker.

      Just get them from online
      And no commercials makes it divine

      You lied to this pet haha
      Have to watch what is in the food
      Can be really rude

    2. I missed you so much Cat, I couldn't wait till February to see you (choke, gag, vomit, lie). Things are easing up a tad bit over here so I'll pop in from time to time.

      Have a good Sunday Cat.

    3. haha made you gag
      Hope the vomit went into a rag
      Glad things are easing up too
      Always fun to have you spew haha

  5. For most advertising I won't vote
    It makes me run to my remote
    Why tell me more than I want to hear
    You'll have me crying in my beer
    I don't care about your nasal drip
    I'd rather practice an aerial flip
    Your anal tissue is hot with pain
    Go for a walk in the cooling rain
    Your husband can't perform any more
    Not my problem..... Here's the door
    You like to talk about a catheter tube
    Watch my dust you country rube
    You say your pimples are oozing pus
    Oh god you're disgusting all of us
    Bodily functions are your bailiwick?
    I'd like to whack you with a stick
    Yuck, brushing your teeth in a looking glass
    I'd rather be watching cat's little rhyming ass

    1. Wow I think
      Commercials sure bring you to the brink
      As the puss oozes away
      One must look away
      And that little blue pill
      Could give some a thrill
      Then again they aren't done
      They have to give the fine print run
      Could cause a rash
      Could make you eat trash
      Could drive you insane
      Watch it while driving in that third lane
      Don't take with this or that
      Could go all zombie at your mat
      Avoid food for three hours before
      Or you could end up at death's door
      And in rare cases we will say
      See you later, enjoy the view as you ashes get spread in the bay

  10. Do you know that they don't make things to last for a long time now? Like you have to buy a new software or equipment every few years, so they will have more money. Some ads are misleading, so I don't believe it until I see it for myself ~

    Have a good Sunday Pat ~

  14. Whew, insurance claims (ha, pun intended) drive me crazy. We switched last year after a long haul w/one co. and it was not fun finding someone else. The cheap fees are just that, cheap. They cover next to NOTHING, lol.

  15. Commercials can be annoying for sure
    They are the television equivalent of a brochure
    Every once in a while though, one strikes me as funny
    Makes me laugh and makes my disposition sunny
    Usually though, I DVR so that I can simply fast-forward
    this way, I can move closer to the show toward.

  18. What a job you did my friend
    on how "commercials" and movies blend
    I find those ads quite frustrating
    and upon further investigatin'
    IMHO it's not so swell,
    it sends the movie straight to h*ll!

  22. Once in a while there is a really funny commercial on tv
    but most of them are just too cheesy.
    It used to be the big chill
    during the super bowl thrill
    but those are just so dumb now
    they will make you have a cow.
    Where has all the creativity gone?
    Now they just sing a dumb song.

    1. Yeah they used to be good
      Now many are as dull as wood

      Depending on how it is spun

    2. Very true that sometimes a good one comes along
      and it's usually because of the song.
      So next month when it comes around
      you can dance in your socks all over town!
      Or at least just in your apartment
      as the cats watch in silence.
      ha.

  25. On our wondrous BBC
    the channels are, they say, ad-free,
    but listen carefully and forsooth,
    you'll find that this is not the truth,
    for several times in every hour
    they use their massive media power
    to tell us of forthcoming shows -
    those aren't adverts I suppose.
