Hey! Stoopid advertisers.
Stop scaring the CRAP out of your potential customers, VW and Allstate. I am completely turned OFF by these gotcha ads, where a violent car wreck interrupts a conversation and they cut to their logo, implying only their services will keep you alive.
The latest, an Allstate one, is a mom driving her kid with creepy happy kid music in the car and everything. Screw this playing on my emotional response- I am repulsed by your campaign and refuse to be manipulated.
You're hitting the bottom of the ad barrel here: pull yourself up and get back to selling what you've got instead of scaring us into hating your guts.
