It's Friday night and Adam is on a men's retreat. I've been wanting to soapbox about this so here it goes. Get ready for a silly and ridiculous post.
I admit, I know nothing about marketing and advertising. But, why do companies advertise their products with life who will be destroyed or eaten. Okay, I know that doesn't make sense. And let me just start by saying I cannot stand commercials. I will jump from station to station (out of 10 channels) just to avoid them. Anyway, I know you've all seen these commercials. They give life to a character that isn't real AND that's going to get eaten or killed, but they never address this. Let me jog your memory.
#1 the Frosted Mini Wheats...the little squares show up while a kid is eating a bowl of their friends. Run! Get out of there! You are next...frosted, blueberry, strawberry and cinnamon.
#2 Mucinex...I'm not saying I love being sick, but how gross is the little Mucus family that gets evicted from their home in some one's nasal cavity?! Seriously? I understand getting cleared up, but do we need to give the mucus life? Does that help the product sell? I don't know.
#3 Spam...Recently Spam has had a major marketing campaign. It's not convincing me. You've seen this one with all the eggs in class who are totally bored. Then Spam comes in and the party gets started and the eggs "head butt" each other and crack. Uh, that means the little egg students are going to die.
Poor Adam has to hear me complain about these ads every time we see them. They are so weird.
