Look, I don’t want to get all Jezebel over here, but fuck you, Jack in the Box. I don’t even understand what this ad is for. Isn’t the point of advertising to convince a group of consumers that your product is appealing to them? To whom is this targeted? The coveted “people who hate women, love smoothies, and are confused about how menopause works” market? In that case, this ad could sell smoothies to a drowning asshole.

  1. “I don’t want to get all Jezebel on you”?

    ENOUGH WITH THE BLOG ON BLOG CRIME!!!!

  2. Jack in the Box: Fast food for your heavy flow days.
    Done. Check please.

  3. I think they knew that NOBODY would want a smoothie from Jack and the Box so they let one of the custodians have a go at advertising just this once.

      • I’s say it’s safe to assume that the majority of Jack in The Box store employees have no experience in advertising, and would write pretty shitty ads straight off the bat. You can substitute “janitors” with “drive-thru attendants” and the effect is the same.

  4. Being in the ad game myself, I can safely say that this ad is for no one. People don’t want a smoothie from Jack in the Box so I guess they don’t need to advertise it to anyone. So job well done, Jack. Job well done.

  5. This is obviously a miss for Jack in the Box, but most of their ads are tolerable and in some cases even good. Better than Wendy’s pathetic stab at the Lonely Island aesthetic.

    Herdin’ cows the size of schnauzers but they’re cattle….

    Jack has the best fast food commercials since Clara Peller.

    thank god you didn’t get all Jezebel on us. Jezebel is the worst.

    AND, I say this a a liberal, queer woman. Jezebel should be sent to jail.

  11. This commercial seems to have led to some discrepancies as to wether or not Jack in the Box has good commercials. Let me just put the 99 tacos for two cents and the Jack getting hit by a bus commercials as evidence that Jack actually has some great commercials. This one may be lame, but that doesn’t change the fact that Jack in the Box owns both the late night and the ad campaign.

  13. Was I off drinking a Jack in the Box tropical fruit smoothie the day that “street-rat crazy” became a well-known phrase?

  14. Yeah, usually Jack in the Box has pretty good ads. And 99 tacos for two cents.

  15. Jack in the Box: Cools Your Hot Vagina.

  16. That’s what menopause it?! Ew. Gross.

  17. Was it directed by Douglas Sirk?
