Why Larry David's Crypto Commercial Has Twitter So Divided

One reason for the divided response is that cryptocurrency has attracted controversy because of its environmental impact and debatable effectiveness, among other reasons (via Finance Buzz). Twitter users like @itmeJP have posted responses like “Larry David commercial is the best commercial oH MY GOD NO WHY IS IT FOR THAT” because of these issues. Some posters implied as well that they’d have been fine with a Larry David ad that was about something other than decentralized finance, like @SilversteinAdam who wrote, “That Larry David commercial was on the verge of being great.”

Others online did respond positively to the comedy in the commercial. @RealGlenMacNow tweeted “Okay, we needed Larry David to bring us the first great [ad] of the night.” @almannarino pointed out how “Larry David being Larry David works for any ad…even a crypto one.” But of all the critics and champions of the ad on Twitter, it was @****showdotinfo who may have won the site with their observation that “larry david crypto ad and backlash would make a good curb episode.” Hard to argue with that.
