I watch a lot of crappy commercials all day long, being a lady of leisure and all. These commercials are engineered toward stay at home moms mostly, and the majority are completely off the mark. If they ever were on the mark, by the time you’ve seen them thirty-two times before 10am, it’s the last freaking product you’d buy if your grandma was on fire.
Here’s one that I thought was totally cute the first three times I saw it, and now I want to drag Susan’s pummeled body out into I35 rush hour traffic and then go eat anything…ANYTHING…but a Belvita cracker. That’s my idea of a morning win.
Most of the shows throughout the day are sprinkled with commercials geared to make women feel like they must buy their product to be sexy and desirable. Guess what. If you have a vagina, you’re desirable. You don’t have to church it up.
What kills me about these commercials, like the one below, is that these hussies rolling around like alley cats in heat don’t make me want to run out and buy this product. They’d like you to believe that if you buy this lipstick, you’ll be transformed into a sex goddess and all men will desire you, or maybe you’ll find yourself so attractive that you’ll just roll around on the bed all day without the need for anyone else. If you ask me, this commercial doesn’t speak to everyday women; I find these women embarrassing to watch, and I desperately hope ladies aren’t running out to buy this product based off of this particular advertisement.
Speaking of alley cats in heat, this video below is a must see. Put it in context with what you just saw.
I feel like if a company wants me to buy a product, they should gear it toward me, a real woman who’s ass looks like it’s been beaten with a bag of nickels. Or at the least not pack it full of horny women. I mean…ew. I recently saw the commercial below and I’m thinking…OK Revlon, now you’re on to something. While I realize it’s still off the mark, at least it’s full of pretty men. However, I prefer to turn the volume down so the commercial isn’t ruined with the douchey advertising.
I figure if these commercials are going to insult my intelligence, it’s at least nice that they do it with something I actually want to look at.
How about you? What commercials annoy you? What will you buy and won’t you buy, and why?
