Analyzing a Commercial
I don’t understand! It’s like, you get 2 minutes of programming, and 5 minutes of commercial. Is anyone even manning the station? Or is it just on one continuous loop? And we, are the Suckers, (a synonym for: ‘audience.’ I know of one Lypozine commercial where Bob wants to lose weight but doesn’t know how… Then Bob must be an Idiot because he’s too stupid to ask questions. And we are Suckers because if we’ll buy that, we’ll buy anything! We don’t stop to ask ourselves why they must spend $100,000 to advertise their product during prime time. It’s because they can’t get anybody to buy it any other way. Dah! And it must work, or why would anyone advertise anything?
The trouble is, what we buy, pretty much determines whether we want a good deal, or will pretty much buy a cheap, Hooker for a saw buck! See, how I would work it is, I’d have one channel with a big list of commercials on it. And if you’d like to watch a commercial, you just choose it from the list.
Else wise, I can’t remember when the last time was, that I wanted anything they had to sell on TV. It’s all either about getting rid of pimples, or buying a car: the two very things I should be wise enough by now, not to worry about! Whenever a commercial comes on, I automatically channel hop to an all movie network, and preview them for 5 minutes… Soon you’ll be able to print whatever you want anyway. I wonder if that means we could be seeing the death throes of: ‘The Boob Tube Generation?’ I mean, even the programing sucks now! Now it’s all about watching somebody else at work, or crime, violence, and sex shows like: ‘Criminal Minds, Miami CSI’…. Too many Hero criminal aprehender shows…
Most of what’s in Supermarkets, is made of corn… What do we care? As long as it’s ‘Gooood!’
