Which Ad Do You Hate Most? ‘Badda Book’, ‘Dates Deals Done’, ‘Hotel? Trivago’


I write all sorts of posts from Flight Reviews to Food & Drink Guides. Writing posts is tedious because of my attention to detail, my fine eye for photos, and because Clifford has to ultimatley clean up the mess. Somehow, the posts that get the most attention are the ones that require the least amount of effort. Each month the post Badda Book, Badda Boom? Who Does Your Marketing? ranks right at the top of most viewed and is always near the top for most commented.

Due to its popularity and my continued hate for that stupid commercial, I am writing this follow-up post where I ask the audience to vote on which travel commerical they hate the most?

Among the ones I loathe are the following:

  • Trivago: Hotel? Trivago. What the hell is trivago? It’s only catchy because I still don’t know what it means.
  • Tripadvisor: Dates, Deals, Done! I hate that owl. And I hate his cousin who does the XYZAL commercial.
  • Booking.com: Booking.com, booking dot yeah.
  • Choice Hotels: Badda Book.

You can argue that the commercials are effective because I remember them. However, I will continue to argue that they do not work because I do not and will not use their services.


  1. LOL. How did I miss this on publication day? The Tripadvisor owl is the creepiest thing ever. His arms look broken. At least his cousin has hands. I would live to know where the f*** they came up with the word “Trivago” and their dirty-looking spokesman.
