Avert Your Eyes From Kayak’s Crazy Dilated-Pupils Guy

Haunting vision in BFG 9000's latest spot

Goofy pupils aside, this new commercial for travel website Kayak—the latest in a series of absurd spots from ad agency Barton F. Graf 9000—has a bit of a blurred vision. Why did the guy think dilating his pupils would help him see better? That's not how it works. And I think the ad would have been funnier if he'd given his wife a weird compliment she didn't know what to do with, instead of just insulting her. That said, you won't shake the image of Mr. Pupils for a while—and he does reinforce the brand message. A good long vacation from this guy is just what the doctor ordered.
