Two funny TV commercials about presentations
Andy survives being casually dressed in this Mennen SpeedStick commercial. (In another a singer forgets the lyrics, so he does a cowbell solo).
Robin is described as Princess of the PowerPoint. Instead it looks like she got a 10-minute introductory course.
Two adjoining slices in her pie chart have barely distinguishable colors. Could you tell them apart without the dotted red line I added?
Her quarterly results bar chart used the unnecessary and confusing 3D option, which makes it hard to read. Tom Mucciolo has a detailed critique of this ad.
