  • "And snowboarders certainly aren't punks"

    Mar 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Definitely grabbed my attention
    Cons: Controversial ads may tarnish epinions.com

    Summary: After watching all four commercials, I decided to write one epinion to contain my feelings on each. Foremost, I think it's a great idea for epinions.com to hit the boob tube running. Dot com commercials are as common as McDonalds and Pepsi commercials ... read more

    Pros: catchy to those involved in that type of sport
    Cons: most wouldn't understand

    Summary: This commercial says it all.If you know anything about snowboarding, you'd understand the tension between them, and the little ski bunny yuppies. It's the same between skateboarders and rollerbladers.Nobody wants to be descriminated agaist, and theres ... read more

    Pros: Nice snow shots.
    Cons: Really stupid commercial.

    Summary: So we make a commercial at a ski hill that does not allow snowboarding for a review of what? He knew that snowboarding was not allowed, so what not all ski hills want snowboarders, just like not all snowboarders are punks. I think this commercial ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Is informative about epinions
    Cons: none that i know of

    Summary: I enjoyed the epinions commercial very much. It is about that epinions got advertisements on tv. And these ads are sure to get more people to come to epinions.com. We have seen yahoo, etrade and many other websites get advertisements on tv. The ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Targets a young, opinionated group
    Cons: Snowboarders have gotten a bad rap

    Summary: This commercial offers just enough controversy to attract the viewers attention. Especially, if the viewer is a snowboarder!!! I worked at Sugarloaf USA, and this was a hot issue. Snowboarders represent the younger generation of the ski ... read more

  • Not sure what the message here is...

    Apr 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: entertaining
    Cons: I didn't see what point Epinions is trying to make

    Summary: i understand that he is getting the point across that snowboarders are not allowed at this resort but does that provide any kind of help to people that are there to ski. Some restaurants have a dress code but that doesn't make them horrible places to ... read more

    Pros: Simplicity, Humor, Marketing angle
    Cons: None

    Summary: I saw this particular epinions.com commercial for the first time about a week and a half ago and I have to say that it is very funny and it made me want to come see this site. I joined it when I logged on because I thought it would be a unique community ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Eye catching.
    Cons: Kinda loud..LOL

    Summary: I've watched all of the commercials here and out of all of them I would have to say that Alta's review would have to be the one to catch the most attention. He went to the ski resort and he taped himself questioning the manager on why they aren't ... read more

    Pros: Humor
    Cons: hardly mensions epinions.com (and the eroyalties program)

    Summary: It makes me proud to see that a web-site that i make money and spend alot of my online time on has a commercial. Commercials bring in more members, which means more people to look at mine, and your epinions. The boarding commercial is good, and has ... read more

    Pros: I like the part where he snowboards on the road.
    Cons: Alta Owners...offspring of Satan himself, no doubt.

    Summary: Oh, BTW, that title's not intended to be a racial slur against Asians...seeing as how I am one... Anyway, this commercial's pretty cool. Those people were total jerks to Jeff, who appears to be a pretty nice guy. I mean, he's nothing what I ... read more

  • Catchy

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, catchy commercial, corresponds with written opinion well
    Cons: not an exemplary epinion portrayed

    Summary: I would encourage showing this commercial. It is engaging and fun. Jeff quickly illustrates the problem of not being allowed to snowboard at Alta and demonstrates why it should be allowed. The ad is clearly an opinion and not a travel review of Alta. ... read more

  • Fun, Fiesty, Fantastic

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Entertaining
    Cons: Broken up video

    Summary: Good representation of what an epinion should be...humorous, factual, and showing personality. This epinion video depicts a snowboarder who is not allowed on the slopes of a ski resort, per their rules. It is interesting to watch the staff actually ... read more

  • Oh no, a bad commercial

    Apr 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Irreverent, but stupid

    Summary: So they will not let him snowboard at the ski resort. And he keeps trying to talk his way in. What does this have to do with epinions? What do it have to do with humor? The problem with many net commercials is that they do not have anything ... read more

    Mar 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good for target audience of active youth
    Cons: Impact that it is for Epinions.com is not strong enough

    Summary: When I watched this commercial I tried to be objective. I pretended that I knew nothing about Epinions.com, and that I did not know what this commercial was going to be for exactly. At the end I was left with a feeling that "Snowboarders rule!" ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: EXCELLENT representation of what happens at Epinions.
    Cons: What resort was he talking about?

    Summary: I saw this commercial on TV the other night. I was impressed with the fact that it obviously was not done by Hollywood-NOT that it was a bad commercial! In fact, I really liked it! It wasn't too amateur, if you know what I mean, but it wasn't all glitzy ... read more

  • Smash Hit

    Mar 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Funny, concise, visually appealing
    Cons: No cons, I think this is perfect.

    Summary: I think this is a brilliant spot to represent epinions, I love that it's an abstract review of a place and activity, rather than a product- which shows the site has a lot more to offer than just "stuff," and I love how well-thought-out ... read more

    Pros: well done, humorous.
    Cons: the girl that worked there was rude

    Summary: I've seen this commercial twice so far, and I found it pretty amusing both times. I don't know where alta is and I haven't skiied in years, and I have never been on a snowboard. But then again I am writing an opinion on the commercial itself. ... read more

    Pros: skis painted on the top of his snowboard
    Cons: violence??? I don't know, their really wasn't anything wrong with it besides anything I've already mentioned

    Summary: In my few years of existence here on this world, I've still been through many great ordeals, and I too have not been allowed in certain things because of my momentary disabilities. Of course, being a snowboarder is far from being that. I've tried it, ... read more

    Pros: the best one of them all!
    Cons: watching reality can be a little scary

    Summary: ..well,ok..the one with the guy shooting his computer was kind of cute... and the one with the tent in the car wash was kind of funny. The one with the breast pump was just nasty (and this is coming from someone that advocates breast ... read more
