What is with those Old Navy ads?
OK, I'm no marketing genius, but I am a consumer, so I think I still have a valid opinion about advertising. Hey, it's all for me, right? So what is Old Navy thinking? You know what I'm talking about-- the old lady and that dog "Magic"? I just don't get it.
Are they really trying to get me to buy their draw-string shorts? The only thing these ads do is make me search for my TV remote as fast as I possibly can so I can change the channel. Then I whine and complain to anyone present (or to myself) for the next 2 or 3 minutes about the commercial.
Maybe there is something to it. Perhaps they thought "well, if we can annoy people to the point of rioting, at least they will come to the store and then it's just a customer service issue".
