Advertisers, get to know your inner B’Owl

Jesus, if it’s one thing AdFreak doesn’t need, it’s more creepy, ugly birds. But here we are again, this time on account of B’Owl, the bat/owl hybrid in this fake commercial from comedians Tim and Eric. Fake or not, parts of this ad are refreshing—I enjoyed watching it scare the kids at the beginning, and have always found joy in a pitchman who realizes he’s selling a real turd. Lots of other ads—for that horrible baby drool, Mountain Dew, for example—could benefit from this kind of honesty. Via Boing Boing.
