commercial

Another in a long unimpressive line of Somebody Picked The Wrong ____ commercials:

Here’s an extended version which makes a bit more sense:

What’s with the audio not matching up with the lips?  I’m pretty sure it’s not lag either, they don’t seem to be saying the same thing at all.

That’s definitely R. Lee Ermey’s real life girl and dog.

Glock-R-Lee-Ermey-GirlfriendAs I’ve said before, I’m really not impressed with the current state of Glock marketing.  I have CONFIDENCE they will attain PERFECTION sooner or later though.

Thoughts?

So much talk about this new pistol, Glock was bound to release another one of their trademark shitty commercials:

Hands down Glock is one of my all time favorite companies, but they constantly drop the ball when it comes to marketing… especially with their commercials.  You’d think a company worth several billion dollars could afford some production value and advice on how to not look like a bunch of newbs.

Here’s my breakdown:

0:02 – Bit of a cleavage tease to show you what you’re in store for.

0:03 – First tight pants / tight top outfit.  “BUT MIKE THIS IS WHAT GIRLS WEAR” say the 12 girls (I think we’re up to 12 girls that follow ENDO now) loudly.  Yea I know… so far I don’t see how this is relevant to the G42 though.  This is basically just establishing the theme of sexuality present in the rest of the video.

0:04 – LOL seriously?  So necessary to sell that G42.  You have no idea. *eye roll*.

0:05 – Oh look she wears makeup.  What an “every-woman”.  *slow clap*… great job at establishing the character Glock.

0:07 – She’s a professional.  LOOK AT THAT BLAZER.  Semi-casual twist with the tanktop though… I wonder where she works?

0:08 – What kind of shitty hotel does she live in?  My girlfriend (subtle humble brag again) said it looks like Glock went to Michael’s and just threw a bunch of random garbage in the cart.

0:09 – First glimpse of her struggle knock-off Hermes bag.

0:11 – OH LAWD.  Behold the G42. *bows down*

0:13 – Yea it’s in .380…. LOL troll successful.

0:18 – LOL nice fake kitchen scene.

0:28 – Looks like her profession is something to do with generic “Dynamic Growth” forecasting.  Awesome stuff.  Really believable graph too!  Bonus points for that.

0:31 – This is when she’s going to blast someone with that G42… I just know it.

0:35 – Oh Glock… you had me on the edge of my seat.  Out of the parking garage unscathed!  Generic cafe type setting with another girl (her lover?  her friend?  who knows?)

0:36 – Sista in the background with the forced acting

0:38 – Crucial rear end shot

0:40 – Pulling a rack out of the ATM.  Ok this is for sure when she’s getting robbed…

0:42 – Shady looking guy with hat pulled down smoking a cigarette… it’s about to get real.  Hmmm nope, oh wait maybe after she leaves the generic “Dry Cleaners”.

0:48 – Nope didn’t get robbed.  Where at a Yoga studio now… you know what that means.

0:50 – Tight outfit, creative camera work.  Totally crucial for G42 sales.

1:07 – Made it out of yoga alive and limber as ever.  Now it’s off to the shooting range!

1:15 – “Some of your shittiest ammo please sir”.  Sir: “Ok, here’s some reloads we re-packaged in the most generic looking Microsoft-paint-looking designed boxes known to man”.  EXTREME ZOOM TO EMPHASIZE .380

1:28 – Did we mention it was a .380?

1:34 – Holy that is the filthiest looking I’ve ever seen 4 shots make a handgun.

1:42 – Yea that ought to do it.

1:45 – “Nice pistol”  LOL seriously?  Dude just smirks and watches her for too long as she walks out.

1:50 – Oh look he’s got this .380 wonder-pistol as well.  What an insane coincidence *eye roll*

Glock-Logo1:56 – “CONFIDENCE – IT’S WHAT YOU CARRY” – Beats the old “Confidence To Live Your Life” line they were using in the past.

Thoughts?  Did the commercial do it for you?  .380 > 9mm?

Not sure if post-Apocalypse or current day Detroit:

I know Detroit isn’t mountainous, but I’m assuming those could be piles of garbage and composting human remains.

1:21 – Oooo yeah.  That’s a pro-tip if I’ve ever seen one.

Not one of PWS’ best videos, but hey it’s gun related content for free and looks like it may be continued… so I’ll take what I can get.  P.S. Sweet keyhole pattern on the quadrail brAh.

PWS-Tactical-Hand-Guard-LengthenerOnly a couple more days until Half Cocked (their much anticipated cartoon) debuts… I’m pretty pumped.

People say it was rejected because of “firearms”, but I’m skeptical.  Take a look:

Here’s what MrColionNoir has to say about it:

Seriously that was one of the shittiest commercials I’ve ever seen.  Funny thing is that until the narrator mentioned “protection” I actually thought it was an ad for whatever garbage Ford SUV the guy was driving, and I was annoyed that YouTube “Skip Ad” countdown didn’t pop up.  Daniel Defense should be ashamed they didn’t come up with anything more creative… hell right off the top of my head put spokesman Larry “The LAV” Vickers on a clydesdale horse, shirtless, galloping in slow motion, eating cheeseburgers, holding an American Flag, and that would have been a billion times more memorable and effective.   P.S. – That idea was free in case you want to step your game up in 2014 Daniel Defense.  I also would consider a temporary TV ad consulting position if I’m not busy.

Larry-Vickers-The-LAVI don’t like / watch sports… better things to do like nap and eat.  When are doctors and engineers going to start getting football level salaries?  That would be a perfect world.  Although, incorporating advertising into those two professions to fund that might be a bit difficult ;)

Blowing gun violence out of proportion, one derpy video at a time:

Damn if I would have known about this commercial I’d have tried to work in some ENDO Apparel product placement.  That target shirt little dude is rocking is legit though… American Apparel even!

Troll-FaceCould they have not got a LBE vest that fit him?  Amateurs.

Moms Demand Action are expert level trolls, I respect that.  As pro gun internet users we could learn a thing or two from them when it comes to trolling.
