My commercial of the week: The Boost Mobile pigs

Boost Mobile CommercialI haven't always been crazy about the Boost Mobile commercials. The one with the girl and guy riding the bike, and her horribly long armpit hair flapping back in his face, was just gross and made me want to turn the channel.

Then there was the bizarre topless commercial featuring Danika Patrick (not topless, mind you). I don't really understand ads that make us want to turn the channel. What's the point? To get us talking about them, I guess. I mean, here I am talking about it and bringing attention to it. But in a bad way!

Anyway, this Boost Mobile ad with the pigs is kind of funny. What is it about talking pigs that makes them funny? Some psychologist can weigh in on that one. Not to mention the fact that they're eating one of their own, but it fits with the "that's just wrong" theme of these ads. I especially like the little wave he does with his little hoof at the end.

It would have been funnier if one of the pigs sneezed at the end and said "I think i'm getting sick..."
