... or are commercials getting unbelievably weird?
How is it they've gotten this far? The woman plugging the boat (those of you who saw it know exactly what I'm talking about) was bad enough but the other day, sitting with my nine year old, I see a commercial for a product called "Super Colon Cleanse".
Oh, no freaking way. But yes, and the woman said it with a straight face. I can't even imagine wanting to be an actor and getting that gem of a part. Think she called her family? Sent out announcements proclaiming her new status as the Super Colon Cleanse Spokeswoman? It's almost, but not quite, as humiliating as the "I have herpes" guy.
Not only is "Super Colon Cleanse" just wrong, but it had been the topic of entertainment for the last few days for my kid. I'm expecting a call from school today because he thinks that this is about the funniest thing he's ever heard in his life and he couldn't wait for spring break to be over so he could share it with all his little buddies. I'm thrilled.
agreed. i used to only watch tv or a movie witb my fiance for about 1-2 hrs a day because I hate getting fatter, but tv and movies have just gotten ridulous. so bad in fact, that I actually go out and hike, play tennis etc. after work (not including my lunch time exersise) because the unoriginality of shows and commercials anger me. have you noticed that most the time, there are more commercials than the actual show? I watched a free movie on comcast on demand the other day, and no bull there were commercials every 15 mins...
isnt on demand advertised as commercial free?! hell, some dvds you cant even skip the previews anymore! bah.... im done..just go play outside..f tv.
So's being mired in your own sorrows or being so PC you can't laugh at anything.... you know, since I was talking about commercials and product names and not specifically poking fun at people who've got cancer.
