And in contrast...

I posted about the Franklin Building Supply campaign a couple of weeks ago, which I still think is a well-done campaign overall. In contrast, however, I heard a radio spot recently for Hubble Homes that just cannot go without comment.

The entire :30 radio spot is nothing but one long cheezy jingle. Not just as an intro before the real meat of the commercial, but the entire thing! Its spots like this that will continue to drive both aided and unaided recall down, making radio as a medium that much more ineffective. I'm still a firm believer that radio can be an effective part of a good media plan, but you've got to give the listener something worth listening to!

Good god, I heard that Hubble ad at work, and it was hideous. Truly hideous.
