Seventeen vs Seventy Advertising Reviews

Seventeen vs Seventy Advertising Reviews

Seventeen vs Seventy – the advertising review blog from Frederick Swanston, featuring Liv and Oma, granddaughter and grandmother. 

Like any family, sometimes they agree, and sometimes they agree to disagree. So watch the commercials. Read the reviews. And see if your opinion aligns more with a teenage girl or a card-carrying member of AARP.

About the Contenders:                                              

Liv - 17 Years Old

A shooting guard on her double State Championship high school basketball team, Liv is no stranger to competition. She brings her fierce winner-takes-family-bragging-rights spirit to every review.

  • Rising freshman & future baller at Augusta University
  • Multiple scholarship recipient
  • McDonald’s All-American nominee
  • Voted Ms. Saint Francis
  • Netflix binge watcher
  • Sugar fiend                                

Uma - 70 Years Young

A descendant of famously feuding families, the Hatfields & McCoys, Oma is always up for a friendly fight. She doesn’t shy away from a heated debate, even when that argument is over the cultural contribution of an ad for Skittles.  

  • Married for 51 years to a self-admitted curmudgeon
  • Former real estate agent & hospital foundation director
  • Current restaurant manager, hospital fundraiser & church volunteer
  • Makes bed every day and will make yours if you leave it
  • Lover of British dramas (all of them)
  • Never met a stranger

This commercial made me laugh on the inside because it was corny. I also like how it gave viewers new flavors that we could try. I’ve also never heard of the idea to stack three different Pringle chips together. I’m excited to try that out! I give this commercial 4/5 stars!

Loved it! I thought that Alexa, as the great observer of all our lives and yet can’t participate in it, was very funny. Who, but Alexa, would know how many stack combinations there are? Now I do, 318,000! Haha!
