More effective than waterboarding

Apparently the CIA is looking into using this new Quizno’s spot to torture terrorist suspects into confessing. It’s that bad.

Whoever made this TV commercial at Seattle’s Wong Doody (despite this drivel, a pretty decent ad shop with what I thought were respectable creative standards), you deserve a congratulatory backhand to the face with an open fist. Then I need you to go get a cardboard box, and put your things in it.

Whilst annoying can make for effective advertising, it debases the craft to the level of maddening nuisance—and I want no part of that.
