I’ve been using Hulu quite a lot recently due canceling cable (obviously I now get the benefit of reacting condescendingly to small talk about American Idol with “oh, I cancelled cable”, while still keeping up with the daily show :). Anyway, I’ve been exposed to a few Hulu ads now and I’ve got so say it’s some of the worst advertising i’ve ever seen (except for an old spice commercial which was awesome).

Anyway, this verizon commercial has to win the award for least imaginative, essentially they copied a chewing gum commercial, yep, it’s a remake.

Here’s the Verizon commercial

Original Big Red Chewing gum commercial:

Who thought this was a good idea?
