There are several recent commercials that really bug me. One in particular is put out by Disney, showing this little girl at a spelling bee. She’s asked to spell “microphone,” and she begins, “M-I-C…” and some odf fart starts singing "…K-E-Y, and then everybody takes up the Mickey Mouse March. If that really happened somebody would stick a sock in the old bastard’s mouth. What message is Disney trying to send? People who love Disney have no regard for other people’s kids?
Another is a Sprint PCS commercial (actually, most of those are stupid) in which a guy is standing in the rubble of what was his home. A friend is supposed to have warned him that a tornado was coming, but because of “cell phone static” he understood the friend to say “a potato is coming.” No, it wasn’t the static, you nimrod. If you’re stupid enough to think someone actually warned you about a potato, Sprint PCS won’t help you.
What commercials make your hackles rise (assuming you have hackles, and can get them up)? Hmmm?
