In my many hours of daytime TV I see a lot of commercials. I hate commercials, as you all know. The mute button is wearing out on our remote control. However, some things get through. I’ve noticed a few trends this summer:
1. Commercials that start out with “Summer’s here and it’s time for…” buying our product. Kentucky Fried Chicken and I think Red Lobster or some steak house are the two main guilty parties. What a pointless tag line. Do people only eat chicken in summer?
2. Mr Devo’s music from Life Aquatic is being bastardized. Case in point: the Skittles and Nestea commercials.
3. Um…I guess that’s it. Except that commercials stink. The only one I don’t mind is the Holiday Inn commercial with the guy who has his best ideas in the shower. “Proving that my client is innocent!” in court wearing only a bath towel. I can never forgive commercials for their cleverness, but I find the actor quite adorable.
Oh and fucking babies running around to the Bach (?) symphony with the words “No… no no.. no no no no no no! You can’t…you won’t…change my diaper now…” makes me run from where ever I am in the apartment to turn it off.
