TV COMMERCIALS – WHAT NEXT?
Saturday, May 24, 2014
Have you found that when an interesting food product is advertised a web address is often given that provides more ideas about using the product? I really like some of the commercials that have taken over our TV screens. For example, one that has nothing to do with foods but really cute - the new Laer Realty ad – that wonderful lion lying protectively across the front porch – the commercial ends with a darling kitten imitating the lion’s roar!
But there are others that don’t really appeal – the one that declares that intercorse need not be painful after menopause and proceeds to sell the product – whatever it is. Well, for me, at 79, I should be interested? It has been on so much that even its shock value has worn off – almost.
The latest commercial that really, as the kids say, blew my mind has not been repeated again – or I was spared its ad – is the one that offers a garment like a bra – to enhance the buttocks! Good grief! And I thought the dresses on various female models were just too tight! I was ready to advise them to go to Spark for help! I’m really afraid that if my mom, who died at 90 some 20 years ago, sees them from high above (I preseume) she is not just turning over in her grave but ROLLING!
Oh, well – it must be my age that prevents me from appreciating the “new” . So be it, but I’ll stay with the food items and messages from Spark or from Network.com – thank you very much.
