Television commercials haven’t gotten more stupid, but when you haven’t been watching network TV for a while they do become more surreal. And stupid.
Try watching them with the sound turned off. Watch the faces. Then see if you can tell what they are wanting you to do. In one car commercial it looks like the customers walk off with mad looks and don’t buy a car. ?? They need to make sure they make sense when the mite is on.
I love how so much of the stuff for kids are marketed towards their parents. Subliminaly stating that if you don’t by their junk little johnny will grow up maladjusted and scared of the dark.
To be honest, television commercials are becoming more entertaining than some shows. I mean, check this one out and I triple-dog dare you not to laugh.
BG5: those new directv spots are pretty good.
I disagree. They HAVE gotten more stupid, even from the same enterprises which once advertised well (or at least cleverly).
