Conan O Brien Jeers Groupon Super Bowl Ad

Here, Conan O’Brien takes a whack at the head-scratching Groupon ad. If you’re late to the game, Groupon worked with the hot ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky on a series of ads featuring celebrities, including Cuba Gooding Jr., Elizabeth Hurley and Timothy Hutton narrating what look like earnest pleas for various causes. But the ads quickly shift to plugs for Groupon deals. The Hutton ad, which ran in the Super Bowl, for instance, begins with the actor stating, “The people of Tibet are in trouble. Their very culture is in jeopardy…but they still whip up an amazing fish curry.” Hutton then goes on to promote Groupon’s deals for Tibetan restaurants in Chicago.
