Can I just say I hate commercials? They are loud, obnoxious, and I just wish I could skip through them always. But no such luck. We are subjected to their noise and stupidity. Okay, every now and then a clever one sneaks in just to throw us off track. But the commercials I am focusing on are not loud necessarily, obnoxious ...? Probably. Disgusting? Definitely. Quick go give the babies something to do. I'll wait here....ok....good...now we can discuss.
First up is a Victoria's Secret commercial. Good, I see we are all on the same page here. Once upon a time this place was class and elegance. Now....welll... you decide...
Okay.... now let's look at commercial number 2.
Now you may or may not recall, that the Lane Bryant commercial was pulled from the networks, because it was too suggestive and might offend people. Can somebody tell me how a curvy woman going to surprise her man is more offensive than a bunch of girls rolling around in their underwear? I'm confused.
Okay next up. Carl's Jr. I really like their burgers, but I am thinking their founder did not have this in mind to sell his product, nor did his wife...
This commercial disgusts me on every level of disgust. Where's the guy in the faded jeans, no shirt, working his way through his burger? Come on Carl's give me fairness!
Seriously? That's their answer? A dork in a van playing with a hoola doll? UGH! What do you think? Were networks right to pull the Lane Bryant ad? Are Victoria's Secret ads more or less racy? Do the Carl's ads border on obscene? Let's not forget that Paris Hilton ad that DID get pulled a few years ago.
