... I mean, seriously, how stupid do they think we are? Or rather, why do advertisers insist on making such stupid ads? Those stupid Stride Gum commercials DO NOT make me want to chew their gum. Honestly. Why don't they say something about the flavors they offer, or something like that. Showing me a ram knocking some ugly guy down and making him spit out his already chewed gum is not making me want to put their product in my mouth. Does it you?
And then there's those Burger King commercials where the ladies are trying to run over "the King". Or those other's with that dude wearing the big, giant "King" head. That thing is just weird, scary, bad looking. And I don't mean bad in a good way, here. I don't like it. And when Burger King was doing the Simpson's Movie ads. That DID NOT make me want to eat at BK. In fact, I don't believe I've eaten at one since they did those. The one where Homer Simpson got poked in the eye with the mic and it showed all this oozy, drippy stuff coming out of his eye. How could anyone imagine that that was the least bit appetizing? Who's the stupid one here? Me? Or the idiot who came up with that awful commercial?
Or what about the Cialis commercial where the neighbor guy pulls up every evening in the sedan and the woman is taking no notice of him every day and then he pulls up on a motorcycle one evening and she just drops her bag of groceries and throws herself on the back of his bike and he zooms her off to the roadside motel. Puh-leeze!!! Taking that Cialis didn't make him any better looking. He still had a frog face, for crying out loud. Looking at the man gave me the heebyjeebies. I don't care what kind of sexual enhancement pill he took. Nothing could induce me to go anywhere with him and certainly not jump into bed with him. Ewwww, he is just gross looking.
Or those commercials where the guy colors his hair and suddenly he's so attractive to the young woman in the bar. Oh really! Who believes that crap? And what man can color his hair at home and have it come out looking natural? I mean what man who is interested in women?
And those fast food commercials where they show their food looking so yummy. The burgers look so fresh, juicy, with a nice soft bun full of cheese, veggies, meat... why don't they go buy one from their local franchise and show it on the commercials. What ever happened to "truth in advertising"? I don't know about you guys but I have never gotten a burger from any McDonalds that looked like what they show on the television screen in their commercials.
Anyway... watched that show Wipeout this evening. It was the special "encore" presentation. It was so obviously a Sasuke ripoff. I wonder how they get away with ripping Monster 9 and TBS and g4 off like that? Or maybe they didn't. Maybe they paid them off? Eh? What do you think?
Other than that, I guess it was an okay show. The announcers were kind of lame. Didn't sound very enthusiastic, I mean. The girl down on the sidelines talking to the competitors gave it a good try, but the contestants where pretty lame too. Didn't want to work with her at all. Oh well... Wonder how long it will last? One quarter, one half, two-thirds or the season, before it gets the ax. Or is it just a summer filler show? One with only a few shows in the can? I bet that's it. I so rarely watch network TV anymore. I'm not real familiar with how they do things now days.
Anyways... that's my rant for today.
