My favorite ad today: "Grandma" for Johnsonville



Speaking of absurdist humor, this spot from Johnsonville more than fits the bill. It starts as an almost over the top typical ad with prominent product mentions and placement but then suddenly takes a bizarre turn. Shot and directed by Michael Schrom, I love the performances especially the reaction from the grandfather at the other end of the table. The whole campaign is worth watching for humor that is both absurd and subtle.
