A funny and insightful review of advertisements. Loved their work on the Double X Files and love this too!
I love the taste of their Schlitz
The finest on the market
Here’s what happened when I first listened to AD CREEPS:
- My khakis? Pressed and folded.
- My sports team? Sent to the centre of the Earth to battle aliens in basketball.
- My boys? Milk-fed.
- My ED? Now I can support a soaking wet hotel robe with that thing. The real fluffy robes. Not even a problem.
This may be the exact reason why sound first passed through a wire. Just for this. Just so we can know more about beer dogs.
May the Ad Creeps bless YOUR EARS with their glory.
Your Show Is So Gay
Your show is SO. GAY.
Your show! IS! SO! GAY!!!
The queer joy has broken the broken the meter: this is a shiny and fun corner of the internet that the world needs. Thank you for all of the research, laughter, and rando facts that go into making Ad Creeps. It brings me immense happiness to hear you both cackling and living your best nerd lives. ♥️!!!
