hether it’s a pair of bathtubs, a sultry woman playing with a football on a bed, or cartoons of irritable bowels and bladders, drug companies and their commercials are deafening. I get that the target audience information for many of these ads says they are for the intended market, BUT honestly, kids do watch these games with their DADS and MOMS on occasion.
Every ad tries to distract viewer from the myriad of side effects often including diarrhea and death with a “day in the life video of the everyman or every woman”. About that, yeah, not so much. For instance, I know that construction regulations call for a plethora of safety guidelines and rules. But, even in a residential construction zone, I don’t think I have EVER seen anyone installing a prefabricated curbside mailbox while wearing a hard-hat!
Stupid, stupid, stupid. The producers, purchasers, and purveyors of these ads aren’t really even paying attention. Everyone, including us, the viewers are kind of hypnotized into stupidity wishing that our game or program would just, come, back, on. Please.
