Jack Keeps Bringing It

I have a theory. It’s not a very highly-developed theory, but I truly believe advertising where I live (Atlanta) would be much, much better overall if the general populace here was regularly exposed to Jack In The Box TV commercials. Because it would force the local yokels here to raise their game.

Since there isn’t a JITB for hundreds of miles, I keep forgetting how inventive and funny their spots have been over the years. Hundreds of them. (The one above isn’t even the best of ’em.) All of which have a promotional, retail-based approach that still manages to be original.
When people ask me what ad campaigns are my favorite, I usually draw a blank. I must keep these in mind from now on.
