The Apprentice - 2/10

The party starts now!


"Soap Dopes", Episode #304.

When the teams are assigned to create a mini-movie ad for a body wash, one team pushes the boundaries of good taste while the other must deal with one candidate's inability to direct.



So far, Street Smarts (down 1 player) is beating Book Smarts (down 3 players)...

The first one was the most idiotic commercial that I have ever seen.

Both of those were awful!

The second one had transitions that you typically only see in bad PowerPoint presentations.

The commercial Dove made was as bad as the two made by the teams.

What was up with that bitchy actress? Are out of work actresses that hard to come by in New York? She was all high & mighty about waiting for two hours. She should have used that time to put some makeup on or something. She wasn't exactly a great beauty or anything.

What a bunch of asshats. There is not one contestant this season that I like.

If the product was geared towards women, it was a horrible idea to have the phallic cucumber and homosexual ending. That weasley little turd came up with the idea and then immediately backpeddled when it failed claiming it did not reflect his morals. I wonder if he does the same as an attorney? Does he go against his "morals" in everyday business? The anti-gay sentiment by some of the men on the booksmarts team pissed me off. If anything, it was the cucumber hand job that was offensive. Carolyn was correct: this is a women's product and the message in the commercial was: the two men go off together and she is left with a cucumber. Not good for selling a product to heterosexual women.

The Ashlee Simpson looking attorney gets on my nerves with her doe-eyed act.

Now, if the commercial was geared towards gay men, then the two guys at the end would be great....but skip the cumcumber bit.

*********

Street smarts: The team leader was obnoxious. Horrible commercial as well.

Frankly, the real commercial Dove created was dull....not sure how it was "outside the box".

Everyone makes fun of me, but I think that Ashlee Simpson and this woman are hot as hell.

Bren further proves my theory that Republicans and sex just don't mix. My God, it looked like an old Vivid movie.

I don't know what they were expecting from the contestants, though. Filmmaking involves many skills -- writing, direction, cinematography, lighting, editing -- that have to be learned. You can't just through a random group of people without experience in those areas into a studio and expect them to come up with anything good.

Ashlee cast a spell on you with her hoe-down jig on SNL

Ashlee Simpson has a decent body and a fair face. I don't think she's hot as hell but I don't think she is unattractive either. The girl from The Apprentice is way more attractive.

I think I was able to figure out which meaning you were using based on context clues.

I couldn't help but think of Homer's video he made for Ned. "Star wipe!"

As for some of the other posts in this thread......come on guys, this isn't "Adult Talk."

CNBC re-runs it on Friday night for certain...they also run it a few more times before next Thursday, just not sure of the exact dates.

I think she had no intention of leaving. She just wanted to put on that fake diva act so the morans would fall all over themselves to apologize.

The "porno" commercial... oh my god! The whole time I was thinking "you cannot be serious!!" That should have been an idea they all had a good laugh over and moved on, but they freaking went with it! I don't know who showed more stupidity: the guy who suggested it or the rest of the dopes for going along with it.

The other team had a decent idea, but the production was absolutely horrible. Big John should have been in charge of the direction because he actually understood the concept, but the idiotic PM thought she had experience because her boyfriend is a "director." She was a joke and deserved to be fired. Carolyn was right, who puts soap right on top of sweat without any water. That's just nasty.

Man, those commercials were laughably terrible. I mean seriously, maybe the funniest thing I've seen all week. It wasn't even down to the directing--the actors were bad too, especially whiny diva bitch. For that kind of bitchiness, you could get J-Lo.

That and Mister "I AM NOT A HOMOSEXUAL!" both had me rolling.

Surprisingly enough, I actually don't mind the Republican attorney. And for the record, I don't care for Ashlee Simpson, but the one that looks like her ain't too bad.

What is the deal with that guy? I don't notice him at all during the tasks and then suddenly there he is in the board room blurting out the weirdest stuff.
