Last week’s poll asked about saving seats for parades and I was quite pleased to see that the overwhelming majority of people said “That’s dumb.” So if it’s so dumb and so few people actually partake in this act, why do cities, like Apple Valley, allow it to happen and even have city employees deal with those who fall outside their ridiculous rules?
This week’s poll is about another completely ridiculous thing…prepping food for TV commercials. While I am no Domino’s fan, they did produce a pretty entertaining video about making their own pizza commercials. Short little interviews with hand models, the pizza maker himself, and tidbits about those who prep the pizzas and how they make the cheese pull away like it does.
Honestly I can’t remember the last time I had a Domino’s pizza (it was at work for sure as I’d never order that crap in my own home but I’ll eat it when it’s free) but I have to admit I was suckered into watching (and then sharing) this particular spot. No, it’s not going to change my mind about Domino’s but neither would any other commercial out there but everyone knows I’m nuts.
So how about you? Do you care what they show in commercials even knowing what great lengths they go through to make it look good? How about this different type of commercial idea? Do you think that this was a good thing for Domino’s to do to differential themselves from the rest of the market? Whatever you have to say about prepping food for commercials and its perceived benefits go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below!
