Traum-mercial Break:: Tribute to Terminix

August 5th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 2 Comments

UNK SEZ: I hope you’re not eating while checking out this post. I’ve been meaning to salute the wonderful world of TERMINIX commercials for some time now and this is the day. Once upon a time TERMINIX ads were content to present their pesky threats as almost-cute fantastic beasts but somewhere along the line they have graduated to nausea inducing LOVECRAFT-ian, THING-like creatures that could encourage DAVID CRONENBERG to take a bleach bath. The invasions are made all the more dramatic by taking place in seeming sterile environments that closely resemble E.G. MARSHAL’s immaculate digs in CREEPSHOW. Thanks for dipping in the horror well to get your point across TERMINIX! I’d say more but I have to go wash my hands.

    Holy Crap!
    I don’t watch much TV so these are all news to me… but WOW! These are sure to spawn some future Kindertrauma tales… as well as making me want to take a shower… or three.
