TPN Chicago is behind this new spot for Cricket wireless, entitled “More Classes,” featuring an annoying dude in a really lame hat. Annoying hat dude interrupts a cooking class to lecture everybody about how switching to Cricket Wireless will help them all achieve their New Year’s resolutions. The latest in the “bring up information about your product or service in a completely random setting” genre is tough to watch, even at 30 seconds. The main actor in the spot is supposed to be funny in a Seth Rogen kind of way (“When I was growing up, my mom, her menu had two choices: you take it or leave it”), but (this can’t really be stressed enough) just comes across as annoying. Almost as bad is the nonsensical #WhatsYourMore hashtag on screen for the duration of the ad (can’t imagine that one is exactly lighting up Twitter right now). I’m sure our comments section has a few things to say about this one…
