1 of my least favorite – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPu9DtpzOdc Charles Barkley/Taco Bell
In my opinion, the Doritos commerical was among the funniest ads because it took me by surprise when the little boy slapped the grown man. It was very cute that he was so posessive over his mom and over his Doritos chips. I’d say that the target audience ranged from children to older adults, both male and female and no particular nationality.
On the other hand, the gordita was not the only thing cheesy in the Taco Bell commercial. Charles Barkley was featured walking along a path singing a corny song about a Taco Bell “box” that is apparently supposed to “rock.” It reminded me too much of Dr. Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham,” and this could have possibly been on purpose. But I was not impressed! I’d assume the target audience ranged from children to older adults, male and female but especially basketball fans (in the background there was a court game going on, a locker room, sports press and even basketball cheerleaders).
