Is this the one?



Typical Kayak commercial.  Other than "Frank" the bully, I haven't seen a commercial of theirs that I can tolerate, let alone like.

If I was this wacko's wife, I think I'd pass on a vacation with him and spend a few nights at a friend's house.  The look on his face after she suggests Kayak looks like that of a psycho serial killer who's just decided on his next victim.

His obsession with her facial features makes me think he may be having thoughts of taking a page out of Leatherface's book.

I think all Kayak commercial writers have been trippin' on acid for an extremely long time now.

If they came up with this stuff sober, I would be scared.

Just saw this for the first time a few minutes ago. I like the Kayak ad with "Frank Reardon" (?) being "banned for life," that was cool.
 
I also like the one with the brain surgeon using the patient as a marionnette (don't know why- maybe the idea of a hippie brain surgeon is pretty far-fetched to begin with).....

His eyes remind me of alien eyes or the eyes of the huge, "human" bugs in the exterminator commercials.  Pretty damned creepy!  If I were the wife, I wouldn't sleep with him anymore cause he might kill me in my sleep Dead, nah, I'd just move out.

How do you know her eyes were like an alien?

You've seen an alien before?

I created an account here just for this topic. This commercial seriously FREAKED me the hell out and yes I feel TOTALLY violated.

Also, I am the type of person that is not easily freaked. Lets just say that ... someone I once knew did some things in his life that could actually make your eyes look that way, and I NEVER EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, want to be reminded of that time.

So, thanks Kayak, I probably wont be able to sleep for about a week until I forget that image. What a stupid commercial.

Finally figured out why the eyes made me cringe; they look like they are painful.  Like when you get your eyes examined and they put the stuff in them to dialate them.  That crap affects me alot, gives me a headache and makes me crazy.  Little tidbit, the lighter color your eyes, the more they will be affected by the solution.

there was a great write-up on this commercial on adweek.com (not an advertisement for the site, its just a good site about advertising that i think members would like). the writer mentioned that this commercial took the wrong course when the man insulted his wife. he suggested the commercial would have been more effective if he had complimented her. instead we have this creepy ugly man, who insults an attractive wife (especially attractive for that guy to catch), who happens to be gracefully aging.

Why does Kayak insist on putting the ugliest people in their ads?

With how many people an ad passes through before being OK'd, you mean to tell me not one of them has ever had their eyes dilated? Obviously not or they would know;

A) Getting your eyes dilated burns
B) You have to wear sunglasses because your eyes will not adjust to bright light
and most importantly
C) YOUR VISION IS BLURRY THE REST OF THE DAY

Are these people complete morons? Allow me to rewrite this ad so it make some f**king sense. Woman comes downstairs at 3am and sees batman on computer in complete darkness. He had his eyes dilated so he could presumably see better in the dark and catch off hour deals. Still wouldn't correct the fact that he would struggle to see, but dilated eyes correlate with darkness, not visual acuity.

Jesus Christ, Kayak, hire some people with intelligence. First you have lard ass couple with the non existant multi chamber flare gun, now dilated eyes = super sight. Get a god damn research department.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Considering how obsessed TV is with medical stuff, including childbirth, a commercial throwing dialated pupils at me is the least of my worries.

I think dialated can be used with child birth too.

I can't STAND this commercial and it's PASSIVE/AGGRESSIVE male!  He would be SO lucky to even speak to a woman, much less pretend to be married to one.

Promise you this:  I will NEVER use Kayak after enduring this horrid piece of trash!!

I know the guy is creepy as F&%$, but has anyone taken a moment to notice the wife?! What the Censored is she wearing? She looks like she is one roll of fat plopped on top of another blob of fat....cinched in the middle by a too-tight belt. Gross. Her pants are disgusting and WTF if with the half-askew cape she's got wrapped around her neck? NOT TO MENTION -- look at those hands!!! Did anyone ever see the "Man Hands" episode of Seinfeld?!?!?!?! They look like they've been transplanted off of Herman Munster and then spliced onto her arms. This woman is the stuff nightmares are made of. Both of these people are disgusting and make me never want to use Kayak's services.
