Got (insert any product here)?

The Got Milk? campaign was so popular and clever that it seemed that everyone jumped on the bandwagon and copied the slogan. It's gone too far. It's not clever anymore. I regret that I did not have my camera when I saw this one particular billboard that sent me over the edge. I will try to get a pic next time I am near it. Ready?

GOT FAT?

It was a sign for a liposuction clinic. C'mon.

Agreed. Some commercials are just played out. Like...

Milk: $3.00
Celebrity endorser: $1 million
Having unoriginal, uninspired people parody your campaign ad for the rest of eternity: Priceless.

Oh Iris, if making up stupid phrases that parody Got Milk? was illegal, you'd be doing a nickel up state in maximum security!
Remember:
GOT GUINESS?

I can't look at those ads anymore ever since someone pointed out what the milk looks like. Really, Cal Ripken Jr., I would expect that from David Hyde-Pierce, but not you!

I agree, Iris - enough already! And I always thought the 'milk' looked like Elmer's glue under their nose. Ick.
