About Us

So you found our website. You’re in luck….you are among friends.

David Rogers
The managing editor of Bloguin’s NHL hub Puck Drunk Love, David is a hockey aficionado with a professional background in marketing and advertising. His passion for the frozen game is only surpassed by his hatred of advertising companies that believe an annoying ad is a worthwhile ad. He personally vows to track down the people responsible for the “Head On, Apply Directly to the Forehead” ad and force them to sit and watch their nightmare for hours on end. It’s only fair.

Ben Koo
A couch potato with an affinity for sports, Ben has been a vocal advertising connoisseur for over two decades. Ben started the commercial of the week feature on his personal blog, Koo’s Corner in addition to successfully relaunching Awful Announcing, a sports media commentary blog. Ben now brings his zeal for commercials and snarky commentary to Awful Advertisements as a therapeutic outlet prescribed by his therapist.

Matt Yoder
A sports (and television) addict all his life, Matt is the managing editor of Awful Announcing and was the winner of the Best Young Sportswriter award at Blogs With Balls 4 in 2011.  His favorite commercials include the Budweiser frogs and anything starring Abe Vigoda.  Talking babies freak him out and he finds the Geico Caveman almost as tiresome and played out as Chris Berman.

Reva Friedel 
A native of NH now living in Chicago, Reva is obsessed with sports and roots for more teams than people can keep track of.  She works in advertising and pays more attention to ads across all media than most, and as such she is very excited to contribute to Awful Advertisements.  Her favorite commercial is a VW one that is over ten years old and she will no doubt beg to write about it at some point.
