It’s not hard to create fake ads when the
reality show format can be so ridiculous.
These three television commercials (for the reality shows Long Island Landscapers, Clam Kings, and Meet the Tanners) are ads that fool you into thinking the shows they’re advertising are real, except they’re actually promoting PBS station WNET as a mainstream TV alternative, using the line:
"The fact that you thought this was a real show says a lot about the state of TV."
Clam Kings, Trailer
"The ocean is big but it’s not nearly big enough for these two clam diggers, and they’ll stop at nothing to be crowned king of the clams. Dig into their competitive and high stakes world as they battle over clams, territory, and more clams. Clam Kings, premiering this September 17th, at 9/8C. It’ll be one shell of a good time."
Long Island Landscapers, Trailer
"For this ragtag group of landscapers the only thing they do better than cutting grass, is cutting corners. With bad attitudes and endless fighting, every landscaping job could be their last. Long Island Landscapers, season premiere coming this September 26th, at 9/8C. Backyards beware!"
Meet The Tanners, Trailer
"A new family is stepping into… the sunlight. Sparks and oils will fly, because for this family getting the perfect shade of perfection is no easy task- and they’re going for the bronze. Meet the Tanners, premiering Sunday, August 18th at 8/7C. It’ll be sunsational."
