Peloton's The Gift That Keeps Giving
Al and Courtney are kicking off Season 2 with a throwback to a 2020 Christmas ep that never hit the main feed. Grab your expired sugar cookie latte and pretend it’s still yule as we talk about holiday advertising, gender essentialism and what to do with this year's box of live canaries.

The WB's Supernatural
We may not have a freeze frame and a record scratch but Courtney’s sure wondering how they ended up here as Al drops a finale bombshell that zigzags from Ad History 101 to White Guy Lit 203 and lands squarely in the pits of ad hell. Plus… what local ad is more worthy of finale status than the famed fifth hammer?

Quaker's Mr. T Cereal
In our penultimate episode of season one, we finally approach what may be our final boss… at least for now. Courtney give Al a crash course on cereal advertising history as well as a light dusting of sugar, while Al realizes some difficult truths about their career. Plus, Mr. T, and a lot of questions about The A Team.

Jamba's Crazy Frog
You’ve seen the internet, right? This week on Ad Creeps Al tells Courtney about the humble and collaborative origins of the frog heard ‘round the world, and Courtney brings jock energy to more nerdy tech talk. Do you… do you wanna make the noise with us?

Sakeru Gummy's Long Long Man
Like sand through the hourglass, these are the ads of our lives… Come along with Al on a journey through Courtney’s favourite bits of soap opera history as we tackle the intense ad mini-series that gave us a love affair to remember, and a long, long gummy. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll chew.

Starburst's Berries And Cream
Listen, we’re not above covering hot trends for stolen clout. Sit back and listen to the tale of Berries and Cream in an episode that definitely isn’t a Trojan Cow for the other thing Al desperately wanted to tell Courtney about: an advertising campaign from 2003 where 6 teens were "hired" to besmirch the good name of the blogosphere.

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. ♥️!!!
I have it, and I don’t remember buying it!
