Welcome to grn-apl, a blog powered by my personal opinions on television commercials. We’re glad you’re here. Okay, I’m glad you’re here (this is a small operation).

So who am I? What are my qualifications for rating television commercials? In short, I have no qualifications. But here’s the deal – you don’t have very many options when it comes to television commercial blogs. Roll my stats:

  • Name: Ryan
  • Age: 25
  • Sex: Sometimes
  • Education: Arizona State University
  • Major: Mechanical Engineering
  • Writing Experience: N/A
  • Television Commercial Experience: I’ve seen some

Okay, so now you know the author. But do you know the blog? No, you don’t. I haven’t explained it yet. But I will. In the next paragraph. Skip ahead.

The concept is simple – I watch television commercials, I write about them, and I rate them. The rating system – not as simple. I’ll explain. As in life, there are good apples and bad apples. Each commercial will be given various quantities of good apples and bad apples, based on various aspects of the commercial. There are no limits. The amount of praise or criticism available is endless. The score for any given commercial will be provided in three parts: the number of good apples, the number of bad  apples, and the overall rating (difference between good apples and bad apples).

Let’s rock & roll, Hoochie Koo.
