Ad-nalysis Sunday: Yahoo and Kanye West

This commercial makes me want to get up and dance.

The commercial has a catchy Kanye West song, a likable nerdy actor, and a cheesy plot that's easy to follow.

"Stay close to the spotlight." Very to the point. What else do you use the internet for other than celebrity gossip? (P.S. I'm totally hating Mel Gibson right now.)

Did you know Yahoo is the number one source for entertainment news? You do now! This commercial targets that audience like a pregnant lady targets Taco Bell (LOL Megan!).

Remember way back when Yahoo used to be cool? (Around the time Al Gore invented the Internet.)

And then it was "totally la-ame". "You still use Yahoo? You need to switch to Google!"

I HATED their "Ya-ho-o-o" jingle. You know, the one that sounded like a yodel.

Well, I'd like to officially welcome Yahoo back into the world of "cool". It's still not up there with Google, but today it gets the official Harker Herald nod.



  1. Google is way better. Yahoo is semi-lame. But, if you still use Hotmail then I hate to tell you this, but you're a loser.

  2. OMGoodness, I love your blog! Hubby wonders why I laugh out loud at my computer screen!
