McDonalds, once again, has pissed me off. Have you seen their latest ad?
A little girl, about 8 or so, expressing herself with some strange clothing. Her mom speaking in the background, saying she lets it go because "it isn't what goes on the tummy, it's what goes in the tummy that's important."
GET FUCKED, FOUR-EYES! The ad goes on to show her daughter eating "all-white meat" chicken, and other things that are "good for you" at MCDONALDS. No wonder we're the fattest goddamn nation on the planet. It's ads like these that make me wish the fatties who sued McDonalds had won their suit. Why don't cigarette companies market the benefits of smoking?
Something needs to change in America. I'm not sure how to go about doing it, either.
I'd like to invite you to post your own most hated commercials. I'll be very disappointed if no one mentions, and goes into great detail, the Lamisil ads. Maybe later this week I'll dream up a list of the good ol' days when advertisements were still creative and thoughtful.
