MRP is so sad for Office Depot.
So . . . well-documented that the Staples “Easy Button” campaign is a big, well-liked success. I think the ads are hilarious, especially the back-to-school ones.
Last night, I happened to catch Office Depot’s johnny-come-lately answer to the Easy Button: The Hand.
People run around the aisles of an Office Depot with a disembodied hand in a box that directs them to where they want to go. Really.
Disembodied hands give me the willies, which might just be because I saw “Doctor Who and the Hand of Fear” when MRP was just a wee, impressionable red crayon.
That was just about the creepiest thing I ever saw on tv. Okay, maybe that and the Lamisil “digger” ads.
Until now. The Office Depot hand is now officially the creepiest thing I’ve seen on tv.
