I saw a commercial for the GH on MTV The Netherlands a couple of days ago. Now I was wondering if anyone has seen it too or any other kind of ads. I guess the bad sales of Splinter were due to too less promotion and I was just wonder if it's any better for the GH.

I've seen tons of commercials for Greatest Hits. I'm suprised it's getting so much advertisement. I've seen the Can't Repeat video a total of two times on TV... The second time, the video was very different. It was much BETTER.

Yeah ive seen one today, it's always on Kerrang TV here in England, the advert basically outlines 'Pretty Fly For A White Guy' 'Why Don't You Get A Job' and 'Original Prankster' but that's it and it says it's out monday here..

Advertising for Americana was really huge even in Slovakia!
after Americana nothing!
When Splinter came out I saw once at some "Czech TV" advertising for splinter! I was really surprised!
Now here in Slovakia for GH nothing.

The clips in our commercials are Come Out And Play, Self Esteem (the commercial starts out with "LALA LALALA"), Pretty Fly, Kids Aren't Alright and Can't Repeat. It is an okay commercial. It is getting the job done, seeing as GH is number 8 on the charts.

I haven't even heard Can't Repeat on the radio. When Splinter came out they played Hit That like shit and they talked about the new album once.

No, i think they didn`t put a dime on advertising up here. Since Splinter sold like warm croissants they won`t botter with propaganda.

It has been on MTV (i've seen it one time). It shows cuts from Come Out & Play, Pretty Fly and Can't Repeat :) Now I'm waiting for the video of Can't Repeat to be shown on Dutch television. Haven't seen any posters or ads in magazines or something like that yet.

:D Nope i didn't see ad here. Even more: the salesmen in music shops here say "The Offspring don't have Greatest Hits". I had quite a laugh when i heard that on the 30th of June :D

Yeah, Triple M (same station that had that Dexter interview with that fat Turbo fuck around Splinter-release) is running ads a lot. I don't listen to the radio, but it's cranked at work. Being on a store sales-floor all day gives you the opportunity to veg out and actually take notice of ads for once in your boredom.

It's some jockish Aussie surfer-fuck "g'day mate" type screaming "Offspring Greatest Hits!" and shit, then they play (from memory) "CoaP", "Self Esteem", "Gone Away", "PFfaWG", "Original Prankster", "Hit That", and "Spare Me The Details". "WDYGAJ" may have been in there too, I can't remember. Probably wasn't. Then the idiotic advertising-voice dude screams some more meat-head tradesman-type falluffle, trying to entice all the "blokey" type tough guy young males to buy the record.

And no, I've yet to hear "Can't Repeat" on the radio in Australia. But then again, like I said: I only listen to it during the day at work, where they play AC/DC and Powerfinger, not much else. :D Aussie-rock sucks dong. I'm sure it's been played a bit down here, very likely in those night-time chart-type shows. I have seen the video on Channel V and MTV though, after my little pop-star wannabe brother alerted me to it.

*shrugs*

The again: The Offspring always get a good deal down here in Australia. As a country, we love 'em. Which kinda sucks. Too many casual fans at shows, not enough hardcores. Hell, when I went last year, even the hardcorest of hardcore fans were wearing Rancid and A.F.I. shirts. :rolleyes:

I've heard from friends that there are commercials for the album on TV, which I think is awesome because I barely ever see album commercials. There are literally tons and tons of advertising posters going up around Sydney, and I still haven't managed to swipe any. Though as far as street press advertising goes - nil.

Ive seen the commericial about 10 times over here in canada. They don't play it anymore though, and I've only seen can't repeat on the tv once.

There's one in England. Advertises Pretty Fly, then Why Don't You Get A Job?, then Original Prankster.. then Pretty Fly again. To be expected, I suppose.

Here, in france, we can see the advertisement sometimes, we hear gone way, wdygab, tkaa and can't repeat and a voice said "only tubes" ( or hits, don't know how to translate ). Can't Repeat is on two radios now.

Yup, they promote their gig in Finland and the Greatest Hits at the same tv ad.

The only thing I've seen is a yellow poster on the street, with the skull on it, saying that GH would be released the 28th...

Free alternative hippy street press sucks, anyway. What's your point?

And what are these posters in Sydney like?
