We find commercials really interesting, and often hilariously or tragically out of touch, so join us as we nitpick the hell of out the mammoth industry of advertising. Every week on Pop Up, Dillon Wall (filmmaker) and Daniel Lanza Rivers (scholar and critic in cultural studies) watch a commercial, and then put it under the proverbial microscope. The show is often salient, and always entertaining... because for an industry built on knowing what we want, advertising sure gets it wrong a lot.

    Toomgis - A Cautionary Tale

    Toomgis - A Cautionary Tale

    Oh, friends. Dear friends. This week we meet Toomgis, the junk food mascot of AM/PM markets. Twizzler hair, hamburger nose, Cheetos beard. This episode is buck wild.

    On this show, Dillon (film industry director and producer) and Daniel (scholar and critic in cultural studies) watch and analyze commercials. From presidential impeachment and criticism of the surveillance state to cat litter and 90's toys, we always find some interesting lens from which to view ads... but we may have met our match with Toomgis...

    Stelara - Symptoms, Side Effects, and the Desire for Relief

    Stelara - Symptoms, Side Effects, and the Desire for Relief

    This week, Daniel and Dillon watch a commercial for Stelara, a pharmaceutical that supposedly combats the symptoms of Crohn's disease. Join us as we talk about the manipulative effects of music and cinematography, the crafting of a narrative designed for people who are suffering, and the internal negotiations that a person with chronic illness has to make daily. And of course, by extension, we examine the hour long list of side effects you always see in these pharma commercials.

    Pop Up is your new favorite podcast about commercials. Each episode, a film industry producer (Dillon Wall) and a cultural studies scholar (Daniel Rivers) watch ads and break down the techniques, cultural relevance, and modes of manipulation that are utilized to stick to your brain like a stubborn mold.

We'll also take a look at a couple of classics, including "Your brain on drugs" and the famous ad from the early 2000s at a fast food drive-thru.
