Why are owls considered "wise"?
I don't get it.

They just look wise.

I think it's because they appear to be wearing spectacles which, along with the nose-like beak gives them a sort of scholarly look...



...kinda like a professor or something.

Ive noticed the same thing lately. I'm not sure why its the hype thing now to put an owl in a commercial. There is also a Geico and a Wendy's commercial with owls in them. The Geico ad is from a year or two ago but the Wendy's one is still being shown.

Geico


Wendy's

It was foxes a year or two ago, now it's owls. Let's guess what will be next!

Looks like Wendys's "borrowed" the old White Owl cigar mascot.

If I ever saw something like that at my front door, it wouldn't be my front door very much longer.

I couldn't be more sick of anything than the 'TripAdvisor Owl'
This may possibly be 'improper board ettiquette', but...
1.) I wanna kill the owl
2.) I wanna de-feather it, chop off its fake little head
3.) I wanna boil the remains
4.) Once boiled, I wanna coat it in curry and toss it in boiling oil for 30 minutes
5.)  Cool it, strip the meat off
6.) Take the glasses away from the 'America's Best' spokesowl
7.) Feed the AB owl the TA owl, claiming what I have is 'curried mouse'
8.) Then I wanna kill little mister know-it-owl and feed it to the pigs, who will eat anything and leave no evidence

Hey now,  I LIKED the 'America's Best' smarmy owl ads when they first came out. "Whooo?" "Stop it!"

Here lately the big offender is WGU, ('Western Governor's University), and at least they're low-key commercials and mildly humorous.

The Zyxal commercials were a bit much, with the highly stylized 'classy' owl with a British accent. "Wise all with Zyxal"?

I'm familiar with the WGU commercials, too. A little too silly.
HOWEVER, you hit the nail on the head with the Zyxal ads - they only showed for a short time, here...but even that was too long.
 
Aaaaaaand, by the way - what a pleasant 'blast from the past'! Great to see you back, Geezer - hope to see you more often. Hope this finds You & Yours at only the best.

Too much effort.
I just want to throw the TripAdvisor Owl into the running jet engine of a 747.
Yeah... that ought to do quite nicely, I should think.

Very true...the "wise old owl" is extremely played out!

Either a British accent or you have the grumpy sarcastic one from America's Best.

This TripAdvisor ad with the "WOOOO!" in the beginning and end drives me nuts!

Of course.
It was just a suggestion...maybe, like...oh...."Whatever happened to AngMcP?". Something I know because I care about our members and, well, heck - sometimes they answer back.
Sometimes they'll surprise you.

If I had to choose between the JG Wentworth boy band ad and the Trip Advisor Owl ad I'm going with the Owl!

Any chance we can mix the two?
Could be some interesting opportunities there.
