How incredibly distinguishing



First of all, I would want to smack that kid if he was taking up the entire soda fountain in front of me with this shit. Second of all, how is that going to be good? He appears to be mixing literally everything at the fountain together. Does that really classify as a "concoction" or something that deserves the title of "master"? Oh boy, Diet Coke, Fanta Orange and Hi-C! That'll go great with pizza. Did his brother double-dog dare him or something?

Third of all, what does this have to do with the product CiCi's is selling? I'll give you a hint: nothing. The description of CiCi's key selling point - a very inexpensive all-you-can-eat pizza, pasta, salad and dessert buffet - is saved for the last five seconds of the ad, while the first ten are spent bragging about a feature possessed by every fast food restaurant in existence. "Unlimited fountain soda? It's like some kind of beautiful dream!"

Unrelated to the quality of the ad: does anyone else think that the low cost for the product being offered suggests that the food pretty much sucks? Either way, thanks for making it even easier for the average American to eat 3500 calories in one sitting, CiCi's. You're doing God's work out there.

That kid is incredibly annoyed to be in that commercial, apparently. What's with the snarky eyebrow raise at the end? And his reaction to the announcer? Hey shithead, we don't like watching this commercial any more than you liked filming it. At least you got paid!

Ditto.

This is a terrible ad. Not that I want to go to Cici's anyway (I've been and it's nothing to write home about), but I have no idea how the first 25 seconds convince anyone of anything.

Plus, if you want a soft drink at Cici's, your bill will be over $5.
