You Need A Reminder Of Every Ad Cliche That Suckered You

Here's how to get ahead in advertising by using every cliche in the book. "This Is A Generic Brand Video" cleverly features all stock footage to skewer the same old images and buzzwords that make us buy stuff.

The video, made by stock house Dissolve with verse originally written by Kendra Eash for McSweeney's, spares no disdain for the trite and true methods of ad hacks.

Hopefully you'll be too busy laughing to be disgusted at how manipulated we are by commercials.
