The Gap Still Thinks I’m A Woman

Posted in actual ads, advertising, the gap on July 29, 2008 by pgleason85

I mentioned this once before, but this has been happening every week since. The gap is convinced that I am a woman. I really need to double check that blazer I bought online last year.

oh yeah, and they think I’m going to be checking my email at 4am. hehe, suckers.

In a completely unrelated note, this is a phenomenal video.

Friday Nights Alright For Fighting…Or Something Like That

Did I butcher that? I’m actually not sure.  So I’m flying out to minnesota on Sunday morning for a charity golf thing, which should be interesting cause i fucking suck at golf.  Much more on that next week tho.  My mode of transportation is a non-traditional vessel (to say the least).

So I will not be here monday.  I will, however, be on the intertubes somewhere.  And someone else will be here entertaining my legions of readers (as well as all the people who apparently look at audrina all day long).  So I’m going out drinking tonight (big surprise) and I hope to be as drunk as slowed down Jeff Goldblum.

Those are still hilarious.  Enjoy your weekend and get ready for a guest on monday (woot)

UPDATE: Teen Sex Is Now Okay!

Via Gawker:

This momentous shift comes in the form of a new JC Penney ad, in which the thoroughly middlebrow retailer has a few laughs about two teen luvahs learning to put their clothes on quickly enough to avoid the mom of the house walking in on them doing the nasty

Wow.  Color me impressed at J.C. Penny getting with the times and making easy to throw on clothes for those late adolescent flings in your parents basement.

Damn You Weezer

I can not get pork and beans out of my god dammed head. GAAAHHH!!

I again watched the Stanley Cup Finals last night, but unlike last time they ended at the agreed upon time, and in plenty of time for me to watch The Daily Show and Colbert. I think I’m back to watching those two shows every night now, damn they are hilarious. But yeah, about hockey, I agree with Deadspin’s feelings, i don’t really watch much hockey, but i think the Stanley Cup is awesome. I mean, the Pen’s fans all stayed around, after their team lost, to watch the trophy presentation. And they (mostly) cheered. Wow! Also, this video is still super cool. Congrats all around to Detroit for winning, and three cheers for not dropping and breaking it either.

My iPod has been unkind to me lately when I have it on shuffle. I mean, three Longspur songs in one day? Old song ideas from the guitarist of the band i used to be in recorded on garage band? Journey, lots and lots of Journey? I mean, come on, I’m quite simply not in the mood for this shit and I would appreciate it if you would stop. I was even considering doing a random 10 ish song thing, but I’m afraid of the consequences. I could always just say I have it on there in case I need music for a soundtrack (thanks for the excuse!)

Pandora has been conspiring against me as well. I don’t want to listen to The Killers every other song. It gets quite annoying.

It upsets me that when you google pizza, Pizza Hut is the first (non-sponsored) hit. I mean, come on, that’s not really pizza. I do still want to go on that Pizza Tour, and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t stop at a Pizza Hut. True story: one time me and my roommates wanted to get that Oreo’s Dessert Pizza thing, so we called up Pizza Hut to order it. When we asked for it there was a 10 seconds pause, and the lady finally said “that’s Dominoes sir.” You could chalk that up to us being stupid, or you could chalk it up to bad branding by Dominoes.

I want to know one thing Gawker. Why, when you told me about IFC’s Young American Bodies, did you not include NSFW anywhere in your post? I mean yeah, there was this:

Below is the second episode, which begins with a dangling dick and ends in a smirk-worthy sad-sack moment.

But you should no I don’t actually read what you write past getting the general gist of, “it’s good, watch it.”
It is by the way, and you should. Its definitely mumblecore to the max, but its still really good. You should check it out. (NSFW…like at all, not even close) See how easy that was!  I even linked to the definition in case people don’t know!

Oh…My…God

I want to do that soooo badly!  Seriously though, how awesome is Sony’s advertising nowadays. Between the bouncing balls, the paint explosions, and the rabbits for the bravia and now this.  They have some of the most creative ads going.

This is Kurt Loder Reporting From the 90’s

For reasons that should be abundantly clear to everyone, we were talking about Kurt Loder at work today.  After a quick search to find out just how old that dude is (old!) i found this video that I think everyone ever should see.

Awesome.

Fall In To The Gap?

Posted in actual ads, pictures, random, rants, the gap on April 8, 2008 by pgleason85

So I have shopped at Gap online before. I’ve bought a few things from there actually. I bought a jacket, a shirt, I think maybe some pants (keep in mind that these were all Men’s clothes). Anyone who has ever shopped online knows what happens after you make your purchases. You will occasionally receive email sale alerts and coupons and stuff like that. The nice thing about these coupons and sales is that they take what you’ve bought, and target the ad towards your tastes based on previous purchases. This ad I got from the Gap is a great example of that:

Oh, errr. . .

This actually kinda makes me feel weird about the clothes I bought. Did most of the the people who bought the shirt that I bought start cross dressing 3 months later. Did my purchases get more and more feminine each time and the gap thought that “The Summer’s Prettiest Skirt” was the next logical step? Did I accidentally pull a Michael Scott and buy a women’s suit or something? I am really at a loss here.

Maybe they just know I’m a fan of the skirt on a girl and they were giving me the heads up for what to look out for. But even then, how would they know that? Unless they’re way more in my head then I realize. Damn you Gap…DAMNNN YOUU!
