Now that the government has finally decided who won the contract to build the next generation of air refueling tankers (it was Boeing, just in case you hadn’t heard), I can honestly say I am glad it is over.
Now I can watch the television, read my newspaper, and listen to my radio without having to hear or see any more advertisements featuring “real” Americans bash one Boeing and their rival EADS North America. I also won’t have to deal with any more advertisements with the ominous music or baritone narrators describing how a win for the rival company will doom our economy.
Well, I have until the presidential primaries to not hear ominous music or baritone narration.
And while I am on the subject of commercials that I cannot stand, the latest advertisement that annoys me is full of poop…honestly.
This commercial for Luv’s Diapers, entitled (no joke) “Poop – There It Is”, features three animated babies in an American Idol-like setting.
Would that they were in a signing competition.
No, the battle they are waging in front of the judges is to see who can poop the most and thus see how much their diapers can hold.
I don’t need to be watching the backside of babies expand out their diapers with gobs of animated poop.
Please, Luv’s, pull the ads. There’s enough poop on TV.
