What Were They Thinking?

I liked this Kilgore ad. Personal. Funny. A nice counter-point to the attack ads.
Then, last night, I saw this animated ad two, maybe three times. It's junk. I suggest the next time the Kilgore ad team gets the urge to imitate Terry Gilliam, they do everything humanly possible to suppress it. And if that fails, smash your fingers with a hammer.
Aside from a crude, if limp, Python imitation, it also reminded me of the ill-begotten Martin Agency ad for Quizno's Subs that featured "Spongemonkeys".
Creatives loved it. The client pulled the account.
